Queen of a Wasteland
"Queen of a Wasteland" is based on the book of Ecclesiastes. The sentiment is that, apart from God, everything we seek after in this life is essentially meaningless. If we attempt to build our lives on any foundation other than Christ, we are essentially constructing a city made of sand. It might look impressive for awhile, but it is sure to crumble in the end. It's one of those songs that feels a bit like a punch to the gut, because it hits on something that I think we are all afraid of on some level: the notion that, in a thousand years, nearly every one of us will be forgotten.
