Matt Maeson - Bank On The Funeral Lyrics




I bank on the funeral
'Cause I learned all my lessons that way
I chipped from my heaven's sin
'Til I stole everything that I made

And this millstone is heavy as hell
And I can't see so well
And I still feel the swell
And my hands and my feet are expelled
They're dead and in hell
And again with the swell

I bank on the funeral
'Cause the truth is alive, it's okay
The salt was in other words
More flavorful in those days

And this millstone is heavy as hell
And I can't see so well
And I still feel the swell
And my hands and my feet are expelled
They're dead and in hell
And again with the swell

Only lesson learned in this cell
Better dead than in hell
Only lesson learned in this cell
Better dead than in hell
Only lesson learned in this cell
Better dead than in hell

    I love you Matt Maeson

  6. Obviously

    Matt says this is based off of Mark 9:42-50 which reads;
    "42 “If anyone causes one of these little ones—those who believe in me—to stumble, it would be better for them if a large millstone were hung around their neck and they were thrown into the sea. 43 If your hand causes you to stumble, cut it off. It is better for you to enter life maimed than with two hands to go into hell, where the fire never goes out. [44] [a] 45 And if your foot causes you to stumble, cut it off. It is better for you to enter life crippled than to have two feet and be thrown into hell. [46] [b] 47 And if your eye causes you to stumble, pluck it out. It is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye than to have two eyes and be thrown into hell, 48 where


    “‘the worms that eat them do not die,
    and the fire is not quenched.’[c]


    49 Everyone will be salted with fire.


    50 “Salt is good, but if it loses its saltiness, how can you make it salty again? Have salt among yourselves, and be at peace with each other.”"

    I Bank On The Funeral
    Cause I learned all my lessons that way

    love it when an artist takes pride in the lyrics. there's authenticity to your music and it shines through.

    Rylund Steele

    I wrote out wow these lyrics are super accurate good job man, and then i read who posted them lmao. Thank you Matt, your music is mesmerizing, Please don't stop ever.

  15. Ravi Borana

    Great song bro!!!

  16. Brock Spencer

    My favorite of the album by far. So deep and true. Our hope is in eternity. Alive is just ok compared to heaven. In fact it sucks compared to heaven. If you get to heaven this earth is the biggest hell you will go through. Those that save their lives will lose them, but they who lose their lives for the Kingdom of God will save them. Better to lose your life, meaning die to yourself, than be in hell. I am a Christian.

  17. Karl Schultz

    I can't wait until I can see you in person ... you have literally turned my day around. keep it real bro.

    I love this song so much. It makes me so happy to know Matt is making music he loves. Anyone want to share the meaning they took from this song?

    Farkry Slogen

    I don't even know how to interpret it. What I do know is its some heavy ass shit

    Obviously

    Read Mark 9:42-50, he said it's all based on that.

    I would love to thanks. For me I think it’s just one of those songs where it was semi ok until I could apply it to my life. It wasn’t really good in my mind until I got it you know? Bank on the funeral is like relying on the fact that everything is going to come to an end. With my family life I think that was my case. I was just banking on the fact that it was going to end and I was going to move away. I also think that for me “learning all my lessons that way” is like how I learned to act and how I grew up. It wasn’t the best, man I’ll tell you that. So becoming who I am is like learning all my lessons from not fun things. Such as a funeral. The next part about the salt I feel is talking about reminiscing for something that was bad only because of knowing already what was going to come. “The salt was in other words more flavorful in those days.” Means that even though salt is bitter it was still better back then. Kinda like how I sometimes wish to go back to how it used to be even though it was darker. The millstone is the weight we all have to carry with our lives and it will be there with us until death sometimes making death seem like a better option. That option being “the swell” the swell of that momentary though of “am I really needed here on earth?” One feeling I have felt a many of times. “Better dead than in heck is I think, just that. It’s better to be dead than in in a dark place. Again thinking back to the meaning of “the swell.” So what does this tell me? For me I just interpreted it as a way to convey what I’ve seen and what I’ve become because of it. I’m a mess not gonna lie. But the music make it better for a moment.

    Thanks for asking bro. Love to info dump so sorry if that was too much.

    I bank on the funeral
    ‘Cause I learned all my lessons that way
    I chipped from my heaven sent
    Until I stole everything I made

    And this millstone is heavy as hell
    and I can’t see so well
    and I still feel the swell
    And my hands and my feet are expelled
    Better dead than in hell
    and again with the swell

    I’ll bank on the funeral

    The salt was in other words
    More flavourful in those days

    And this millstone is heavy as hell

    Lyrics:

    I bank on the funeral
    Cuz i learned all my lessons that way
    I chipped from my heaven sent
    Til i stole everything that i made

    This millstone is heavy as hell
    And i can’t see so well
    And i still feel the swell
    In my hands and my feet are expelled
    Better dead then in hell
    And again with the swell

    I bank on the funeral
    Cuz the truth is alive is okay
    The salt was in other words
    More flavorful in those days

    And This millstone is heavy as hell
