"The War Inside" as written by and Tim Foreman Jon Foreman....
Put your hands up open wide
Put your hands up side by side
Age don't matter like
Race don't matter like
Place don't matter like what's inside

Let the kick drum kick one time
Breathe out let your mind unwind
Eyes on the ceiling
Looking for the feeling
Wide open let your own eyes shine

Yeah, it's where the fight begins
Yeah, underneath the skin
Between these hopes and where we've been
Every fight comes from the fight within

I am the war inside
I am the battle line
I am the rising tide
I am the war I fight
Eyes open, open wide
I can feel it like a crack in my spine
I can feel it like the back of my mind
I am the war inside

I get the feeling that we're living in sci-fi
I get the the feeling that our weapons are lo-fi
Ain't no killer like pride
No killer like I
No killer like what's inside

Yeah, it's in the air we breathe
Yeah, it's in the blood we bleed
Beneath these dreams and what we've seen
We are the kids of the in-between

Put your hands up open up wide
Put your hands up side by side
Age don't matter like
Race don't matter like
Place don't matter like what's inside

Yeah, every thought or deed
Yeah, every tree or seed
The big things come from the little dreams

Every world is made by make believe

    General CommentI cant believe nobody has commented on this great song yet!
    I especially love the line "I am the battle line"
    All of us battle ourselves; we battle everything that hinders and holds us back from who we want to be or who we know God wants us to be. It doesnt matter what age or race we are - life in general is definitely a war in part.
    I also love how the song ends with this line - indicating that there is a reason for our struggle - "Every thought or deed , every tree or seed , THE BIG THINGS COME FROM THE LITTLE DREAMS , every world is made by make believe."
    Our personal battles might seem small now, but if we overcome them we'll become better people.
