about

This is a song about battle and warfare of the physical and supernatural kind. While writing, I pictured ancient battlefields and also the cosmic arena that is so mysterious.

lyrics

I see the arrows fly, I see the fire coming
Hold steady in the line, nothing is surprising
And those who are asleep, and those who close their eyes
Swimming in self-defeat, choose to believe the lies

When the ground is shaking, when shadows surround
Hold steady in the line, we're doing something right
The words which are deceived, their eyes can plainly see
Truth which every living soul, knows so deeply

In this present darkness
We will push the antithesis
Fighting not against the flesh
In the heavenly places
In this world of darkness
Where the cosmic war rages
Light will pierce the ages
In celestial spaces

And so the arrows fly, and fire burns around
Hold steady in the line, and hold your ground
These gates are made of deception, and fall they shall
No weapon formed against us will prevail!

In this present darkness
We will push the antithesis
Fighting not against the flesh
In the heavenly places
In this world of darkness
Where the cosmic war rages
Light will pierce the ages
In celestial spaces

One word spoken...
And the walls shall fall!

This kingdom built on rock
Stone walls of eternity
And it shall fill the earth
As waters cover the sea
There's no delaying
Predestined destiny
Hold steady in the line
A breakthrough symphony!
