A day in LA
And millions of faces
Are looking for movement
'Cause everything's stuck
And everything's frozen
And everyone's broken
And nobody moves
And everyone's scared
That the motion will never come

This is the incompletion
Stuck in a line

Love is the movement
Love is a revolution
This is redemption
We don't have to slow back down

The stars are alive
They dance to the music
Of the deepest emotion
And all of the world
Is singing in time
As the heavens are caving in
Mysterious ways
Why God gave His life
To put motion inside my soul

It's bigger than cold religion
It's bigger than life

We're starting now
We don't have to slow back down

This is a revolution

    General CommentThis song was inspired to the singer 'Jon' from 'The Chronicles of Narnia' every night his dad would read them to him, before he feel asleep. And this one part stuck in his head "'Cause everything's stuck
    And everything's frozen
    And everyone's broken" that is when they walk into the castle and all of them are frozen and cemented. It is from book 2 'The lion the witch and the wardrobe'

    General Commentthanks for the info specs. This my favorite Switchfoot song, it builds upon itself and climaxes w/ 2 different groups of people singing 2 seperate lyrical parts. Great Song.

    General CommentWell, the Bible says God is Love, so maybe it's about God just moving you...giving your life meaning.

    General Commentsometimes when can forget how amazing God's love is. It can become mundane, ceremonial, and too religious (like when he says "cold religion"). I think Jon was trying to make us remember that God's love is a movement that is meant to be exciting, celebrated, and enthusiastic. We can't take it for granite. It's so much bigger than everything.

    General Commentthe line"mysterious ways why God gave his life to put motion inside my soul"explains the song for me. God died because he LOVED us so much. this song is about loving the way God does. we are nothing without love, God's love.(everyone's frozen, stuck etc.,)we can do many things with the love of God. we have to start now.

    General Commentthe song is straight forward. jon tells us that love is the movement. our kindness, our words, our love for other people is a beautiful movement. but some of us arent moving. we're stuck and afraid. when love is a big movement in the world, then it will be a revolution leading to redemption by many people. thats the beauty of love. on the other hand we can never fully grasp how great God's love is, its a rehearsal. love is a movement thats bigger than religion. its a hard song to understand; but it is such an amaing song jon has written.
