Can you feel the tension?
Have you heard the voices of the lost?
Churning up the fire
To reach the dark side of you

When the walls decide to close in
And the floor disappears beneath you
Just hang on to our last words and

Resolve

Touch your hands to water
Place them on the fire
Have faith
The flame will lose it's strength
Just touch your hands to water

Hold your breath for one more second
Soak the torch in kerosine
And light the match and
Watch as it all closes in

Can you feel the tension
Can you hear the voices of the lost?
Just hang out to our last words and

Resolve

Our lives will hang on the words
You have spoken
And we will wait for our God to return

Lift your hands to the Heaven
Let your heart be incased in flames

Touch your hands to water
Place them on the fire
Have faith
The flame will lose it's strength
Just touch your hands to water

Our lives will hang on the words
You have spoken
And we will wait for our God to return

Lift your hands to the Heaven
Let your heart be incased

    General CommentFirst off, I'd like to say I really like the newer Haste The Day stuff. I love the old stuff, but I just think there is some sense of maturity or maybe that's not the word I'm looking for...maybe a new twist/sound. Anyways, I think it sounds great.

    I think this song is about giving your heart, soul, and body up for God. Allowing God to choose your path. "When the walls decide to close in, and the floor disappears beneath you. Just hang on to our last words and Resolve." I think this means like just as you think you can't continue and there's no more, God will "Resolve". God will take care of you.

    "Touch your hands to water
    Place them on the fire
    Have faith
    The flame will lose it's strength
    Just touch your hands to water"

    I think this is saying by believing in God (touching the water that is blessed, i.e. Holy Water) that you can fight problems that you are having in life. Maybe it's a breakup, death, or anything. Just "have faith" and all will work out.

    General CommentThis song reminds me of society as a whole.

    The fire, the burning, the tension is the pull of the world with their values, ideals, and temptations in regards to the Christian view of life.

    The song is saying don't let the fire bother you because in the end, the fire will go out and the word of God will prevail.
