Decided to take this and resing it! An awesome backing track such as the one for Standing Strong deserves some awesome vocals. Whether mine are awesome or not, I was looking for something "stronger" than what was first recorded. Possible some screaming. I had my Toby character of my Doovie Brothers do some low screams, but that was all (which by the way, added some cool effects to his (my) voice in this new one)!
I don't know if this is perfect. Levels may be off. Last chorus seems to be louder than the others... may be because I'm screaming in the lead vocals and not the other choruses. :P
I don't mean to scare you, but I let out some of the emotions I feel in the lyrics of these songs. There's only one thing that can make me extremely angry, and it's when atheists say my God is imaginary and He doesn't exist. This is totally and awesome song... not to be all cocky or anything.
I got really hoarse after recording this. :P I also took out the solo guitars in the bridge. I had a cool thought I added there, and the solos kinda drowned it out.
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!!!!!!
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 TEAR 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 - They say our God is illogical to the mind of man.
Doov - They say that because He can't be understood or factually documented, there is no proof of God.
Toby - But there is indeed proof of God, but why don't they see it?
Phil - Maybe it's because they're looking through their mind instead of their heart.
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!!!!!
You can believe what you want to believe! When remember when you try to attack me, you won't knock me DOWN!!!!
