Reclaiming thrones, our generations pride,
Sits a conformist ploy to strip what burns inside.
Our bodies yearn to live life endlessly, so now we rise. We rise in mutiny.
We make our stand here between the angels and animals.
We fear nothing here, where we can beat any feat set to keep us crawling.
We're calling you here to give leave to destruction of fear
And stand tall against all who will dare to shake you. Don't let them shake you.
"Stand strong, where I could not, please stand strong"
Oh please, this plea, dear God, let it not from my lips be conceived.
So grip your fist and swing until your knuckles bleed.
If you are the new breed scream, "I am immortal!"
We can't sit quietly because there's more to life than we see.
So if you are the new breed scream, "I am Immortal in you!"
This is the call of the new breed.
I want to feel what change your glory brings.
Please teach me life lived fearlessly and I swear I'll make a stand here,
Between the angels and animals and fear nothing.
Here, where I can be more than mortal and fight for a kingdom that answers to no one.
But I just can't breathe without you in the air and I wont so rip out these lungs...
And for my heart, you can cut it from my chest.
Oh God, if that's what you want, for me to feel life endlessly...
I'll breathe your blood for the rest of my life.
So grip your fist and swing until your knuckles bleed.
If you are the new breed scream, "I am immortal!"
We can't sit quietly because there's more to life than we see.
So if you are the new breed scream, "I am Immortal in you!"
We'll be death's dealers, if that's where you lead.
Anchored by glory, we rise in mutiny.
We are the new breed. We are the new breed.
We've come alive and we are moving.

    Being on fire for god, this also goes for children of fire, but we are the new breed, a generation that can't just sit in a church and contemplate all of the world's problems, we have to do something about it, and we can't just go on mission trips, those help, but your heart has to be in it, so if your the new breed scream 'i am imortal in you! '

    The ploy of conformity is to make it socially unacceptable to stand up for immortality - It is true, it is socially acceptable to conclude that there is no life after death - Yet there is a burning inside that wants so hard to reject this. As such The New Breed denies the socially acceptable belief that there is no life after death and seeks to motivate the revolution against the conformist ploy to deny not only life after death, but eternal life in Jesus the Christ.

    this song is all about 'the new breed' - Christians who realise who they are and what they are called to do - 'live life fearlessly' because there is more to this life then most people see...or believe. 'We've come alive and we are moving'.

    Oh Sleeper are a freakin awsome.
