I secretly crave, crave that scent again
Still feel it pressing on me now
Now with the onset, my flesh is weakening
I steel my nerves for temptations at hand again

And I hear this calling still you don't seem so far at all
And I hear this calling out

No secrets deception for these would tear this down
I'll note the past spair the pain
Words match my deeds with brutal honesty
Never forget these choices were made by me

And I hear this calling still you don't seem so far at all
And I hear this calling still you don't seem so far at all
And I hear this calling out

Not falling victim to the fire that burns inside of me
Though I am fearfull I will not prevent this tragedy
My strengths been tested I wear the scars that prove
Still I believe that this calling will see me through

And I hear this calling still you don't seem so far at all
And I hear this calling still you don't seem so far at all
And I hear this calling out

My strengths been tested I wear the scars that prove
Still I believe that this calling will see me through.

    sorry, but ATR is definately NOT a christian band. that is a complete rumor and in many interviews ive read with the band, when that question comes up, the response is "nope, not at all". although i do believe that some (if not all) the members are actually christians. phil has addressed the seemingly christian lyrics and has said he "just writes what comes to mind" and that the references and interpretations are coincidental.

    The song is about phil being tempted for somthing and the craving is like no other and even though he wants it so bad he will stick to what he knoes is true and no follow througb with it cuz he knows what the concequesnces are, and even when he doesnt want to beleive it he still sticks to it. There is definatly some christian motives in this song due to trial of temptaion and dealing with sin. And this calling could refer to being born again to a new hope, that he found a way to over come it, meaning god or somthing, but hedefinatly claimed victory for sure. This song i can relate cuz me being a cristain myself this song describes exactly how difficult it can be with facing temptation, cuzz with me it dealt with purity struggles, but with jesus, i have victiry

    The song is talking about how he is being tempted in a way and the craving is strong, but this calling refers to him being born again and that he found god and that he will help him through phils struggle and claim victory, and in the christain life, the flesh is weak, and your strengths are always tested, but phil beleives that he will persevere through this trial of temptation. Great song i can completly relate to it becuse me being a christain myself i have dealt with purity struggles, but i know that god is faithful and pull me through.

    I think it means that he craves for flesh that slowly has become an addiction, and the calling is that he won't succumb to the addiction but overcome it
