Reclaiming thrones, our generations pride,
sits a conformist ploy to strip what burns inside.
Our bodies yearn to live life endlessly, so now we rise. We rise in mutiny.
We make our stand here between the angels and animals.
We fear nothing here, where we can beat any feat set to keep us crawling.
We're calling you here to give leave to destruction of fear
and stand tall against all who will dare to shake you. Don't let them shake you.
"Stand strong, where I could not, please stand strong"
Oh please, this plea, dear God, let it not from my lips be conceived.
So grip your fist and swing until your knuckles bleed.
If you are the new breed scream, "I am immortal!"
We can't sit quietly because there's more to life than we see.
So if you are the new breed scream, "I am Immortal in you!"
This is the call of the new breed.
I want to feel what change your glory brings.
Please teach me life lived fearlessly and i swear I'll make a stand here,
between the angels and animals and fear nothing.
Here, where I can be more than mortal and fight for a kingdom that answers to no one.
But i just cant breathe without you in the air and I wont so rip out these lungs...
and for my heart, you can cut it from my chest.
Oh God, if that's what you want, for me to feel life endlessly...
I'll breathe your blood for the rest of my life.
So grip your fist and swing until your knuckles bleed.
If you are the new breed scream, "I am immortal!"
We can't sit quietly because there's more to life than we see.
So if you are the new breed scream, "I am Immortal in you!"
We'll be death's dealers, if thats where you lead.
Anchored by glory, we rise in mutiny.
We are the new breed. We are the new breed.
We've come alive and we are moving.

    General CommentDellowMan, I think that the line about rising in mutiny:

    "Our bodies yearn to live life endlessly, so now we rise. We rise in mutiny."

    Is actually referring to born-again Christians rising in "mutiny" to what their body wants (to live life endlessly).

    And what is your body but a vessel? Mutiny is commonly associated with ships- but that's just a side note.

    Oh...my. This reminds me of the old Disciple - Rise Up. This song seems to be about coming alive in Christ. I really like how they use "Anchored by glory". That is beautiful. Reminds me of how God says he's our refuge and stronghold (Psalm 9:9), our strong tower (Prov 18:10).

    General CommentMy favorite on the album.... next to FINISHER
    I think this is being "reborn"or "born again".
    So if you are the new breed scream, "I am Immortal in you!" -being invincible in God

    "Please teach me life lived fearlessly and i swear I'll make a stand here,
    between the angels and animals and fear nothing."
    as you live this life of the "born again" -new breed- you learn from your preacher, youth pastors.
    In this you are tempted, i feel he is saying hes going to make a stand here where im tested.

    General CommentI Think this song is talking about how the new generation of Christians will rise up and seperate themselves becomming something different from what they were, and the world itself. Hence Calling ourselves the New Breed!!!

    General CommentThis is actually about the fall. It is the lie that Satan told in the garden:
    So grip your fist and swing until your knuckles bleed.
    If you are the new breed scream, "I am immortal!"
    We can't sit quietly because there's more to life than we see.
    So if you are the new breed scream, "I am Immortal in you!"
    It is describing how Satan was convincing humanity to rebel and mutiny against God:
    Reclaiming thrones, our generations pride,
    sits a conformist ploy to strip what burns inside.
    Our bodies yearn to live life endlessly, so now we rise. We rise in mutiny.
    We make our stand here between the angels and animals.
    We fear nothing here, where we can beat any feat set to keep us crawling.
    We're calling you here to give leave to destruction of fear
    and stand tall against all who will dare to shake you. Don't let them shake you.
    "Stand strong, where I could not, please stand strong"

    In the end you hear the whole "You will be like God" lie:
    We'll be death's dealers, if thats where you lead.
    Anchored by glory, we rise in mutiny.
