Can you feel the beat,
of a thousand marching feet?
Searching for passion in a lifeless, dead-end street.
They’re breaking down the wall,
They’re knocking at the door.
Searching for a soul that gives them more.


When the music dies,
the apparitions of melody will rise.
All that’s said and done,
will haunt us one by one,
the spirit of the heart will carry on.


Are you listening, to the voices as they scream.
Calling to the masses with the drone of sleepless dreams.
They’re coming to your house.
They’re crawling up the stairs.
Searching for a saint who really cares.

It’s just below the skin, that it starts sinking in.


When the music dies,
the apparitions of melody will rise.
All that’s said and done,
will haunt us one by one,
the spirit of the heart will carry on.

    General CommentMusic is disposable. We search for that perfect song that makes us feel something real then when the feeling starts to dim we search for the next song to bring it back. This song is saying that after the music is gone hopefully the message will live on in the heart of the listener. Kids In The Way are Awesome. See them in concert. You will go home a different person. I did. Remember there is a God that loves you no matter who you are.

    General Comment"This song we chose as the title track because it carries a theme that I think encompasses all the songs on this record and everything KITW is about. With this song we are simply implying that someday the music will die. Music is an ever-changing, ever-growing thing that people use up and go through like clothing. As a band we are very aware of that and are ok with that because to us, it’s not really about the actual music. Don’t get me wrong, this music is our art and we love creating it, but it’s what goes into the art and what makes the art live that really matters to us. It is our hope and desire that long after the music fades from your head, the spirit that was instilled in the music will live on in you forever." - Dave Pelsue (Kids In The Way)

    General Commentyup KITW is really my FAVORITE band, and it's not because of their music (well it is a smaal part of it) it's mostly that they are Chritian, and they believe in giving it all to God like a real Christian band should do, and they're not embarrised of the Truth and they realalize that it's not about them, it's about God. And that's all that matters and I love how they talk about God and quit the music to share the Word.

    And I also like them b/c they sing about real life issues, and they show that no matter what God is there, and theyr music is the 4th genoration of worship. but most of all I LOVE God!!!!



    Keep rawkin' for God guys. you have my support!!!!

    General CommentMan, there is no better way of describing this song than the Artist self - KITW, YOU GUYS ROCK!!!! Cuz truly, the Melody of The Spirit continues operating even when our minds are elsewhere in life. "It's so Awesome to have an Artist define their own lyrics...like D.Pelsue did.
