We were born to fight!

Here I stand, my breath is baited waiting for the clouds to burst. I plead and scream,"Come what may!"

Dear God, lift me up from this ground of pain
The heat has reached a degree that's bringing me to faint
My faith and sweat have remained to contend the grave
Despite the sting, we're waiting until you bring our fate

We're singing!
(Chorus)
We are the children of fire!
We are the lions!
We stayed when all else deserted!
Cuz we were born to fight and fight and fight!

I see you, tattered and bruised
You're the only ones who remained true
I hear your call through the thick of it all
You've waited so long for the rescue
Our time has come!

I'm sweating red, I'm sweating red, I'm sweating red
I'm red, I'm sweating red, I'm sweating red, red, red
I'm sweating red, I'm sweating red, I'm red
I'm sweating red, I'm sweating red red red

It turns from blue
The sky comes unglued
And falls to the earth as my answer
It's so far from rain, the lot will feel pain
As it singes their skin but for you it will soothe

What descends feels like heaven on my skin
Finally I am free to never breath again
My body lifts from the ground I was rooted in
And I pass the spark as it races to the rest of them

(Chorus x2)

Ignite ignite ignite world
Ignite ignite ignite the world
Ignite ignite ignite the world
Ignite the world and let it burn!

    This band is christian, micah openly declares his faith in christ and openly says that he cannot make it through a day without god. The symbol comes from the last line of the song the finisher off the last album. God tells satan "i will rip off your horns". Thus the symbol. As far as the lyrics, this is a concept album telling the story that picks up where the last album left off. A father and his daughter have just witnessed the battle between god and satan. God disappears from the scene for awhile which leads to the father's downward spiral of non-belief but through the journey ultimately changes the daughters heart and she finds faith. This last song is where she has found a group of believers and she has stayed with them and stood strong in her new faith. "i see you, tattered and bruised. You're the only ones who remained true. I hear your call through the thick of it all. You've waited so long for the rescue. " this is the spirit of god talking to that group of people who are begging for him to save them from the desolate place the world has become. "it turns from blue the sky comes unglued and falls to the earth as my answer it's so far from rain, the lot will feel pain
    As it singes their skin but for you it will soothe what descends feels like heaven on my skin finally i am free to never breath again my body lifts from the ground i was rooted in and i pass the spark as it races to the rest of them" these versus are those peoples answered pray, christ descending and taking away those who have kept the faith. The versus' of ignite the world, is referring to the cleansing of the world that is talked about in revelations. Where god will recreate the heavens and the earth. So if the band stays with the concept idea of the past albums i would look for the next one to be about that, after god has re-created everything, established his throne on earth and satan is released again for a short time.

    These guys are truly inspiring, and like others said the symbol isn't satanic and does in fact symbolize god's victory over satan. This album in majority is supposed to tell the story of a priest and his daughter who is an athiest during the second coming of christ. So the parts that seem to question god are coming from the daughter. Though these lyrics are dark they are rich with meaning, and are well written.

    God is amazing. He has truely moved in these guys, he does so manracles in these guys life. One day we will be with him, why do we arggue and come on here to find a dissagreement with someone who called something satanic when its not, its fine to show them its not but why argue? Dont we know god crys at hatred, dont we know he loves us too much to see us fighting with our brothers and sisters of something not worth it? My youth pastor marc made a point this sunday at bible study, there are only 3 things really worth fighting over and thats 1. The fact that he came threw the virgin mary, 2. Died on the cross for all our sins, and 3. That on the third day rose again.
    So why arggue over if a band or someone is satanic, if we think someone is shouldnt we just pray and give it to god?

    Everyone who thinks oh sleepers symbol is satanic is wrong. Like another comment said if you've ever heard them speak their obviously christians. Their symbol is a broken pentagram not a pentagram. A pentagram is satanic. A broken pentagram is a pentagram with the horns cut off which symbolizes god's victory over satan.
