"There ain't a penthouse Christian wants the pain of the scab, but they all want the scar."

- from Innocent Bones by Iron & Wine

I hadn't really listened to this song much, but when he sang it last night I was struck by it. I'm still sort of digesting all the lyrics. As a Christian, it's definitely an uneasy listen. Personally, I don't think the song is exclusively about Christianity, but I could be wrong. Regardless, it does beg self-reflection.
