Adrenaline is flowing
Your nervous fingers lightly drumming
Cords click into silver jacks
You flick the switch, the tubes are humming
The lights go down
The sweat is beading
Muscles tense, your heart is speeding
It's so loud it feels like heaven
Crank these amps up to eleven

All our lives
We've kept the meaning hidden deep inside
All our lives
Were somehow made for this, to amplify
We dream, we cry
To amplify
We live, we die
To amplify

Feedback speaks of caliber
The wires wrapping 'round
We fall beneath these walls
Of unimpended sound
And here at last, the final notes
The song has sung its course
Everything that we have saved
We'll scream until we're hoarse

We were born to amplify
Scales drop from once blind eyes
We turn and glorify

    General Commentthis song is about the amplifying and glorifying Jesus through our lives. the first verse talks about the nervousness of being the representative of Christ and the bridge talks about is about amplifying what God has given us until we cannot anymore

    General CommentMore specifically, I think this song is about amplifying and glorifying God through music. Reese is exploring how, through all the details of performing a show (verses 1 & 2), his main purpose in his music is to amplify JC. In the prechorus, chorus and bridge Reese makes it clear that that is what he sees as the purpose of his existence, so naturally it is that message, not the music itself, that he wants to amplify.

    General CommentI know what you mean doin research, but I don't think this song is meant for an unbeliever. This song is more to show the Christians who listen to Roper, how he views his music. This is not one of those song you give to a friend to git him into Christianity.

    By the way OnDistantShores I think you just explained this song perfectly.

    General CommentI'm not a christian, but i love FIF, Brave Saint Saturn and Roper, mostly because the talent pouring from reese is amazing... but as i am not a christian, it means something totally different to me... being a musician, i live to amplify... but i agree that the intended meaning is the one discussed above...
