Careful: Do You Know What They are Hearing and Repeating?

You do not want your child walking around singing, “Maybe I should kill myself,” or “Sail with me into the dark.” If kids are listening to contemporary music, they’ve probably heard this song. This is a regularly played song and it’s very popular, but when you hear the lyrics, it’s startling. With kids heading back to school, parents, pay attention to the lyrics kids are listening to and repeating. Be sure to check the lyrics so you know what they’re hearing and filtering in. Songs about death and suicide are the devil trying to plant seeds of death and suicide into young, impressionable minds.

The song ‘Sail’ by AWOLNATION, while it sounds trendy like any other rock or grunge song, has the following lyrics:

“Sail” (from “Megalithic Symphony” album)

Sail!

This is how I show my love
I made it in my mind because
I blame it on my A.D.D. baby

This is how an angel dies
I blame it on my own supply
Blame it on my A.D.D. baby
Sail!

Maybe I should cry for help
Maybe I should kill myself (myself)
Blame it on my A.D.D. baby

Maybe I’m a different breed
Maybe I’m not listening
So blame it on my A.D.D. baby
Sail!

La la la la la
La la la la la oh!
La la la la la,
La la la la la oh!
La la la la la,
La la la la la,
Sail!

Sail with me into the dark
Sail!
Sail with me into the dark
Sail!
Sail with me into the dark
Sail!
Sail with me
Sail!

We know everyone has a choice with their music, but just be cautious with what kids hear.You want them to listen to songs that are about them feeling strong and empowered, not death, destruction, killings or suicide. Pray for our youth. Pray for those who are in ministry to walk in their calling, to bring God back into churches, homes and schools. We need more of God and Jesus filtered in.
