There ain't no stopping us now
I'd like to say that from the outset
Not up in this business just to get what we can get
But bet that
We gonna bring it to you loud and clear
How loud I gotta say it 'fore you people start to hear
I can name our problems
But I know a solution
Bring back the revolution.
The revolution comes and we all stand as on
Rises from the darkness and shines like the sun
As the sun gets higher, our church catches fire
Down from our pride and up from the mire.
It's a dream that I've had and I hope it comes true
I forgot to say the revolution starts with you.
See wisdom and knowledge is one thing that we lack
You've been a Christian how long and you're still on Similac
So I call on Martin Luther and all the reformation back
Then the common people couldn't read God's revelation
You had to be a monk or a priest or read Latin
That was all before the revolution happened
But the fire cooled down ever since that generation
We put down the Bible and pick up the play station
And we can't defend our faith 'cause we don't even know it
We say we love His word but pick a funny way to show it.
The world walks by and we don't have a thing to say
I call 'em as I see 'em
And that's what I see today

Chorus:
The revolution returns
The reformation lives on
The great awakening is now
Sleepers open your eyes
A war is on, our rally cry is no compromise
No compromise, yeah, no compromise
A war is on, our battle cry is no compromise
So throw your fist up and pray the revolution rise
A war is on, our rally cry is no compromise

Our hearts have grown so cold
And we've such numb souls
But shirts and bumper stickers
Man we got 'em by the truckload
Is true religion what you have around your wrist
What does the scripture say of this

They honor me with words
But their hearts are far away
I call 'em like I see 'em
And that's what I see today
So I call on John Edwards
Who preched us all awake
We try to be emotional but here is our mistake
As a church we lack repentance and we lack true affection
Not only in our minds but our hearts need correction
And man that's true religion, resignation and contrition
To love each other so much that we'd die before division

(Chorus)

So what about you
Will you join us
Will you admit that the waters around us have grown
You better start swimming or you'll sink like a stone
Do you stand with us or do we stand alone
It's time that we stand up, enlist for the war
I've tasted battle and now I want more
I've known the truth and been cut to the core
But I'm back in the game to even the score
And I mean to go out with both my guns blazing
Amazed at a God who's so truly amazing
To triumph in battle as the Spirit enables
Can't turn back the clock but we can turn the tables

    General CommentI love this song. It gets me so pumped up to preach. This song is a great synopsis of the collapse and remedy of the American church's apathy to reality. People need to WAKE UP! "Sleepers, open your eyes!" Men have died for the freedom we have today, and we are just wasting it sitting in front of TV sets while our cars and wrists proclaim our watered-down, uneducated "faith" in Christ, the Word of God that came to us to FREE US. The One who died for our ultimate freedom wants more than just a few hours of our time each week. The Father has so much better for us than this. Rise up, sleepers! The time is now!

    "So what about you? Will you join us?"
    "Can't turn back the clock, but we can turn the tables."

    General Commentthis song is AMAZING!!! they said the actual version is like 9 minutes long. they have some true words to say on this topic! i love the part where its like
    "and i mean to go out with both y guns blazin
    amazed at a God whos so truly amazing"
    and the part about not really knowing our faith but having plenty of bumper stickers and WWJD bracelets. we DO need a revolution!! and i was impressed as usual at the historical accuracy of this song. i learned in my MEH class that back in the day the church services (which you wre forced to attend) were like 3 hours long and only in latin and nobody spoke latin, or could read at all. so the priests could just tell them anything they wanted and be like "yeah its in the Bible." not like anyone could prove them wrong. and they talked for hours with their backs to the audience for some reason! and we think church is boring now! then this revolution happened and they got some Bibles in the peoples language and taught services and their language too. and everyone was on fire for Christ again and completely in awe.
