I'm going in
1,2,3 and go
Like a kamikaze
Like Geronimo
A leap of faith
And I finally feel alive
3,2,1 I'm going in

I don't know if it's just me
But it seems that things aren't changing
Every day is pretty much the same
With a little rearranging
If I do nothing I can't fail
No blistered hands, no broken nails
Killing time, I'm paralysed
With faded dreams and hollow eyes

I've been waiting for a revelation
For a moment of clarity
Conflicts and convolutions
Ricochet inside of me
There comes a time for throwing caution to the wind
I feel the pulse again

I'm going in

1,2,3 and go
Like a kamikaze
Like Geronimo
A leap of faith
And I finally feel alive
3,2,1 I'm going in

1,2,3 say when
Like a flaming arrow
Soaring in the wind
A leap of faith
And I finally feel alive
3,2,1 I'm going in

I am so slow to commit
I have wasted years on fences
Is it really true the shoes don't fit
Is it only my defenses?
What if I don't measure up,
Don't listen well, don't smile enough?
Alone and unknown up to now
Need to change direction somehow

I've been open to persuasion
Wanting someone to take the lead
It's a little disconcerting
Signing up for eternity
There comes a time for throwing caution to the wind
And so my life begins

I'm going in

    General Commentthis song is about sometimes God calls us to do things that seem scary, things we're unsure about sometimes. We worry that we wont be accepted we worry that we'll fail but if we know God is on our side we should forget it and just go do what he calls us to do, b/c nothing can go wrong.

    General CommentThis song is one of my favorites, and it's easy to figure out what it's about. His life seems dull, uneventful, so he decides to do something about it. There's no turning back, so he's checking his fears at the door, and going in. ;-)

    General Commentto me, i think this is about finally accepting God and Jesus. the whole song seems like someone who has lived their life waiting for God to come to them the whole way and waited for Him to just pop up, but finally he's realized he has to look himself and take "that leap of faith". when he finally realizes what it all takes, he's unsure if it's what he really wants to do because there's such an "image" of christians that he's sure he won't be good enough.

    General CommentI think this song is awesome

    I think it is about how we can spend our entire lives waiting for things to happen (for God to tell us what to do with life, for us to meet the right girl/boy, for us to know where we're supposed to work, etc.)But in the end we need to just jump in with faith and trust that God will take care of us. We may get hurt in it, but that is life. And i think that God wants us to live life to the fullest, which means joy and pain. So step out and take some risks i guess. It will make a man of you. ha

    General Commenti dont like five iron frenzy as much as the oc supertones but this is my favorite song by them. ist about being kinda (ehhhhh) half on fire for God and scared about commiting 100 percent but now hes just decided to jump in with 2 feet and he says it feels good.
    i know what he means when he says "its a little disconcerting signing up for eternity" word.
