Song Meanings

What is the story behind Skillet's song Lucy?

Quote from John Cooper: "..this week is the very first time that I've ever told what this song is about, because, uh, it's very special to me, but I feel like it's time to talk about it a little bit, so.. listen up while I tell you a story about a young girl and a young guy who found themselves in a hard situation. They didn't know what to do when they found out that she was pregnant; they were young, they didn't have any money, they were scared, they didn't want to tell anybody, they didn't know what to do, and the only option that they could see was to terminate the pregnancy. So that's what they decided to do… they went to a clinic, they had the procedure done, and at first they felt relieved that all their problems had gone away. But then something happened that they did not expect… and that's over the next few weeks, which turned into a few months, they began to feel an intense sadness… and a pain and an agony and a guilt that wouldn't go away. They didn't know what to do, so they finally went to see a counselor; they said look - tell us what to do, we just don't know, and the counselor made a suggestion. The counselor said here's what you need to do - stop acting like you had a procedure, and act like you had a death in the family. So the couple went home and they made three decisions; number one, they decided to have a funeral service for the baby; number two, they bought a tiny little headstone; and they last decision to make was what to name the baby. After a couple weeks they finally decided they would call her… Lucy."

Secularism

Does Skillet have any secular songs?

As Skillet is a Christian rock band, most of their songs have a Christian meaning. However, Skillet's songs can also be put in a secular meaning as well. A lot of the band's songs can be turned into songs about suicide, drugs, and relationship issues.

Some of these songs include:

  • The Last Night

The secular meaning of this song is that someone is about to end their life, and someone special to them tells them not to end their life because they'll always be there.

  • Monster

Monster's secular meaning is hating what you have become because of your actions.

  • Should Have When You Could Have

This song's secular meaning is putting in all your love into someone, and the other person does not realize how much you care about them, and they leave you.

Skillet's songs can relate to everyday Christian life, but the band's songs can be put in a secular meaning too, as Skillet tours with secular rock bands.
