Ok, this one pretty much completely blows "Until It's Gone" out of the water! :) Austin Batterton described this as a "mixture between Thousand Foot Krutch and Skillet." :)
I figured since the music sounded so angry, I would write the lyrics about something that makes me angry... and the thing that is easiest to get on my nerves is when people (athiests and non Christians) tell us Christians that we're serving a God that doesn't exist, or that we're wasting time praying, or whatever. They try to support with facts... I know, I've talked to many people like this! I don't want to make anyone angry, but this is just what I think... IT'S ABOUT TIME THAT A CHRISTIAN LIKE ME TAKES A STAND FOR WHAT I BELIEVE AND NOT ONLY STAND, BUT STAND STRONG!
I mean seriously, this really does make me HOT! This music REALLY DOES express my feelings that I have on this!!!! HARSH!!!!
The instrumental of this is killer!
Lyrics: Verse 1:
People say there's no God (there's no God),
And the bible is fake! (It's a fraud)
Then they throw facts at me,
Hoping I will break!
But you, CAN'T BRING ME DOWN!!!!!!
I'M STANDING STRONG, I WILL NOT FALL!
FOR IT'S NOT MY OWN STRENGTH I STAND!
I STAND IN CHRIST, MAKER OF ALL,
THE WAY, THE TRUTH, I WILL DEFEND!!!!!!
Verse 2 (Psalm 46:10... ironically, this bible verse was lying on the desk in front of me while I was recording):
They think facts can disprove,
But their facts are MAN based,
And my faith is in GOD,
Who goes past what man thinks!
So, You CAN'T TAKE ME DOWN!!!!!
I'M STANDING STRONG, I WILL NOT STOP!
NO MATTER WHAT, I WILL DEFEND!!!
MY FAITH IS IN A HIGHER GOD
WHO SURPASSES WHAT WE COMPREHEND!!!
Toby and Mack guitar solos (actually, Ben Mullins) :)
(OH!!) I'M STANDING STRONG, I WILL NOT FEAR!
I STAND IN CHRIST, MY SOLID GROUND!
YOU ASK FOR PROOF THAT HE IS REAL,
FORGET YOUR FACTS, JUST LOOK AROUND!!!!!
