"I Dare You to Move" as written by and Jonathan Foreman....
Welcome to the Planet
Welcome to existence
Everyone's here
Everyone's here
Everybody's watching you now
Everybody waits for you now
What happens next?
What happens next?

I dare you to move
I dare you to move
I dare you to lift yourself up off the floor
I dare you to move
I dare you to move
Like today never happened
Today never happened before

Welcome to the fallout
Welcome to resistance
The tension is here
The tension is here
Between who you are and who you could be
Between how it is and how it should be

I dare you to move
I dare you to move
I dare you to lift yourself up off the floor
I dare you to move
I dare you to move
Like today never happened
Today never happened before

Maybe redemption has stories to tell
Maybe forgiveness is right where you fell
Where can you run to escape from yourself?
Where you gonna go?
Where you gonna go?
Salvation is here

I dare you to move
I dare you to move
I dare you to lift yourself up off the floor
I dare you to move
I dare you to move
Like today never happened,
Today never happened,
Today never happened
Today never happened before

    My InterpretationThis song definetely is about living a life for Christ, forgetting what is behind and pressing toward the mark. I love this song. It also challenges me to resist the defeating thoughts within in myself and MOVE.

    General CommentIt is about Religion. I don't think lead singer Jon Foreman would accept an interview for an article titled, "100 GREATEST SONGS IN CHRISTIAN MUSIC ," if the song wasn't Religious/Christian based otherwise! Which he did.

    From the Article


    CCM Magazine presents 100 Greatest Songs In Christian Music
    This song is about a man at different stages of his life. It's a Christian theme of how we all stumble upon hard times in life, and about how God dares us to move and get back on our feet. It's about how there's a difference between who we are and who we should be
    Lead singer Jon Foreman said, "I love to write songs. I've been at it since I could play the piano. It's one of my favorite ways to pass the time. Music helps me sort out who I am, so my songs usually end up being somewhat autobiographical. I've always felt the deepest connection with honest songs, so I try to write with sincerity."
    Foreman went on to say that this song, "is an attempt to honestly face the gap between who I am and who I want to be; between the way the world spins and the way it should be. I've heard that we only use a small part of our brain. Maybe our soul is the same way. And maybe we're half asleep most our lives, simply reacting to the stimulus our brain receives. Action, true action, is rare indeed."

    My InterpretationHow do you get anything to do with religion out of this? To each his own I suppose. So I would say it's definitely NOT about Christ. It's about that moment when you're broken, and you just have to finally DO something. Anything. Get up and walk. Go to the store. Get your life back.
