"Heaven Knocking, Hell Rising" as written by Joel Aaron Bailey, Jeremy Braxton Folse, Johnathon Patrick Schefano, John Ball, Gabriel Rosser and Brandon Henderson....
Wake up, and Put on your Armor....
We rush to the Battle Scene....
Fire and Brimstone we will bring to the fight
and Souls will be lifted from here to the sky
and He will descend from the clouds
Like a thief in the night

These trials seem so long...
and the days i feel are killing...
but my hands will clench to yours
when it seems like i am falling
BECAUSE YOU WERE ALWAYS THERE

Welcome, welcome
is the first thing you do to me always
When i've been so far away
And you are the best thing
That has happened to me and
Forever i'll worship You

This is the end hear it comes
This is the end that we're in
Haven't you heard Havent you

The dead will rise

AWAKE THE BRIDE

And it's such a chore for me
Just to see the world is ending

But the news paper writes and
The television screams
That this is the end
So haven't you felt the love of Christ
Haven't you felt Jehovah's Love...

One day we'll see your face...

One day... Your welcome

Welcome, welcome
is the first thing you do to me always
When i've been so far away
And you are the best thing
That has happened to me and
Forever i'll worship You

This is the end hear is comes
Haven't you heard...............

    General Commenti love this song sooo much. the lyrics are amazing. i was suprised no one has wrote about it yet.
    The first verse is talking about the end of the world and God returning( Fire and Brimstone we will bring to the fight... He will decend from the clouds like a thief in the night...)

    The second verse is talking about how awsome God is.

    And when he sings its such a chore to see the world ending he is talking about witnessing to other people.

    This song is pretty much just about how we need to witness when the world is ending and how Legit God is. =D
    straight up.

    General CommentIn the lyrics, "here" is spelled as "hear" multiple times.

    The meaning of the song can be summed up in just the title. Heaven is knocking- it is calling on you for salvation and to worship and witness. But all the while, Hell is rising and claiming the world. Basically the theme of the whole song.

    I especially like the singer's voice when he's screaming. It sounds like his throat is so dry and he won't be able to scream for much longer. Like he's been screaming for a long time and is reaching the end to where he can't scream any more. Kind of symbolic to the meaning of the song, although I'm sure it wasn't meant that way.

    General Commentthis is simply about the war and the battles that are fought and being fought everyday between good and between evil.
    in the first verse "wake up and but on your armour" - everyday people wake up and face so many demons. we try to stand for the Lord but things hold us down.
    Near the end it talks about how the world is ending. You don't have much time. Jesus is coming!
