When the glitter fades, It fades so fast
What really lasts, what will the anthem be?
Did we sing of rock and roll?
Did we sing if sacred souls?
Has the heart and the harmony met pleasingly?

When the flicker fades, it fades so fast
Nothing is left. What will be legacies?
Cause guitars burn you see
Recollect no memories
Of the lights and the cheers and the human vanity

Should I give?
Should I sing some rust?
Pity me for my golden lust
This one�s for the lily
And this one�s for the rose

Here it is, let the truth be told
Here it is, we would like to know
Here it is, what will the anthem be

What will your anthem be?
What will our anthem be?
What will the anthem be?

    General CommentI love this song, man. And though I wasn't there, I heard them play this at their farewell concert. It was the last song they played. very appropriate i think. It pretty much lays the truth out on the table for christians. Even though it's great, and fun, don't get too attached to the glamour of this world cause it ain't gonna last. keep your eyes on eternity. and for all rock bands or celebrities in general - there's more to this life than the lights and fans, the fam. again, it's temporary. where will you be spending eternity?
