Our families are a weird machine
There's too many parts to tape back together
Before you turn 18
You shake cause you're not ready
But fear comes back for more
Be a light in their darkness
Be a glow on the shore
He'll turn it around

New fire lit in you
A new fire circles this room
May you never be afraid of your faith in
New fire lit in you
A new fire circles this room
May you never be afraid of your father

Families are a precious thing
There's too many hearts to break all at once
Before you turn 23
You scream cause you weren't honest
And you left cause you were wrong
I pray for grace in your decisions
And hope you won't be gone too long

He'll turn it around
I swear He'll turn it around

New fire lit in you
A new fire circles this room
May you never be afraid of your faith in
New fire lit in you
A new fire circles this room
May you never be afraid of your father...

Take, take that knife from your neck...
Take, take that knife from your neck...

New fire lit in you
A new fire circles this room
May you never be afraid of your faith in
New fire lit in you
A new fire circles this room
May you never be afraid of your father...

    It means that we shouldnt be afraid to stand for christ, even to our own family, to show them the light using the "new fire" inside, the new fire being the holy spirit, and your new love for christ, without fear of what they might think, no matter how bad things go, "he'll turn it around"

    This song is about remembering that it's not just you that your decisions affect, it's everyone around you as well. Your family is precious and if you act out of self gratification you could possibly break all those hearts at once. You should illuminate christ like a lighthouse on the shore so you can be the light in your family's darkness. Be bold in your faith and don't be afraid to use the grace that your father has given to you as a tool in other's lives. A new fire has been lit in you and it is engulfing the room you're in. That new fire in you is christ, so take the knife from your neck and remember that with whatever troubles and hardships you endure he'll turn it around.
