When You Don’t Know The Context: What Message Is Being Conveyed?

If you heard this song, with no context, would it sound homo or hetero erotic?

This might hurt, it’s not safe
But I know that I’ve gotta make a change
I don’t care if I break
At least I’ll be feeling something

‘Cause just okay is not enough
Help me fight through the nothingness of life

I don’t wanna go through the motions
I don’t wanna go one more day
Without Your all consuming passion inside of me

I don’t wanna spend my whole life asking
What if I had given everything
Instead of going through the motions?

No regrets, not this time
I’m gonna let my heart defeat my mind
Let Your love make me whole
I think I’m finally feeling something

Take me all the way
(Take me all the way)
Take me all the way
(‘Cause I don’t wanna go through the motions)

Take me all the way
(Lord, I’m finally feeling something real)
Take me all the way

You’re not told whose love making you whole. There a hint at who you’re asking to take you all the way, however, in modern parlance, the noun can be anyone or anything. The language is clearly centered around self-fulfillment, self-desire, and self-gratification.

My Christian brothers and sister, we must pay attention to the media we and those around us consume. We can’t keep going through the “motions.” Living our lives on autopilot leads to Hell.
