Example of Lyrics:
by August Burns Red
I trust in You for life to live, air to breath, purity fills my lungs. I no longer live in solitude, no longer bound. My heart beats with great devotion, this is a start to a new beginning. On my knees praying for mercy, hand raised high, humble and broken. Wanting Your grace, wanting Your security. Memories of lying face down motionless, with such a hollow feeling inside, soon I will end this life I was living. I am just a man, with a heart and sinful hands, I am a fallen victim. Lord show me the way as I give myself to You, never let me go, hold me with Your everlasting love, be my strength, be my voice, my glory. Set me free.
Lyrics are usually dumbed down to mix with the breakdowns and two-step parts of traditional metalcore.
A christcore kid is basically a kid who wants to be in a metalcore band, but doesn't want to make his/her rich parents look bad. He/she totes on about Christ, with a "metal" spice when all he is doing is looking like an idiot and spewing bullshit in order to lure in dozens of post-teenage girls to their 'intense and inspirational' display of faggotry.
