Hi Vowel Lady - are you an "ahhhhh" or an "ooooh" type of lady?
I've never heard of that song before, but I like the lyrics. I get the same impression about the song - a woman in need and desperately searching, but only finding judgment.
That has been the problem I've observed when churches place too much emphasis on judgment. People no longer see the person, they only see the "sin" - this type of judgment can turn away people in need. As a result, these lambs end up getting eaten by wolves.
The impression I get from the last line is similar to "...and the beat goes on." - i.e., another person in need shows up. Maybe the gender of the person was changed to reflect that people and their circumstances are different. They should be seen as individuals - not lambs.
I could be wrong....thanks for the brainteaser.
