Can you feel the tension?
Have you heard the voices of the lost?
Churning up the fire
To reach the dark side of you

When the walls decide to close in
And the floor disappears beneath you
Just hang on to our last words and

Resolve (z2)

Touch your hands to water
Place them on the fire
Have faith
The flame will lose it's strength
Just touch your hands to water

Hold your breath for one more second
Soak the torch in kerosine
And light the match and
Watch as it all closes in

Can you feel the tension
Can you hear the voices of the lost?
Just hang out to our last words and

Resolve (x2)

Our lives will hang on the words
You have spoken
And we will wait for our God to return

Lift your hands to the Heaven
Let your heart be incased in flames

Touch your hands to water
Place them on the fire
Have faith
The flame will lose it's strength
Just touch your hands to water

Our lives will hang on the words
You have spoken
And we will wait for our God to return

Lift your hands to the Heaven
Let your heart be incased

    I love this song! I love the lyrics and their clarity as far as metal goes.
    Haste the Day is a "Christian band", and its lyrics reflect that title with a certainty that few other Christcore bands can.
    Ok, the song.
    When I read and listen to the lyrics of this song my mind goes straight to the topic of temptation. So here's my opinion:

    "The tension" relates to temptation and is caused by "the voices of the lost" which are people of this world and maybe even demons that would tempt you. "The fire", or the pressure to give in to that temptation, acts on "your dark side" which relates to the sin nature that all people have.

    Walls closing in and the floor disappearing simply outline hard times when the pressure (or "fire") is most intense.

    Resolve is the conviction that Christians have to overcome that temptation.

    Touching the hands to water and placing them on "the fire" is symbolic of putting it out. The "water" is the strength that Jesus Christ offers us. In this (strength) we must put our faith. The result is the "fire going out"

    I think that the stanza of "light the torch" just relates to seeing the "fire" around you. It says that the "fire closes in around you" and this relates back to the walls closing in and the floor disappearing.

    "Our lives hang on to the words you have spoken and we wait for our God to return" Awesome line. Refers to our faith as we wait for the second coming of Jesus Christ.

    "Lift your hands to heaven, let your heart be incased in flames" I this line uses fire differently that the other passages. "Heart encased in flames" is the passion and conviction that we have while waiting.

    I think that pretty much covers it... if anyone feels like I hung too much Christian symbolism on this song, I'm not sorry :P.

    Love this song. I'm going to listen to it again!
