Song of the week 40 (Underoath – Young and Aspiring)

***WARNING***

This song is heavy.  I like it.  A few years back I grew up rocking hard to this band: Underoath

They’re Christians in a screamo and melodic band.  I always saw this as a “grab me by the collar and speak sense to me” type of band.

Those quiet and weirdly happy worship songs have never moved me.  (that’s a whole other discussion.)

I have highlighted the lyrics that grab my attention:

So let’s not even try, you’re right.
Let’s ball it up and throw it out the window.
It’s becoming all so clear in my mind,
I’ve thought this thing through more like once or twice.
I feel that this is my last request to you.

Hold your breath, bottle it up and save it for the next one.
It’s safe to say we’ve been writing this all night.
None of this will ever change your mind.
It’s never safe to rely on borrowed time.
Now we’re both undone and it’s time to open up your eyes.

Consequence is our need in times like this,
Feeling free is our modern disease.
You’re a classic disaster, with a knack for losing your exterior.
I’m so sick from staring at the mirror.

This heart needs a break from you,
And I am used to this.

I fear that I’m just an end, so you play the mistaken,
And I play the victim in our screenplay of desire,
And I’m still writing the letters I’ll never send.

Running in circles, I can’t forget how many times
I’ve played this in my mind.

Feeling free, feeling free
Consequence is our need in times like this,
Feeling free is our modern disease.
You’re a classic disaster, with a knack for losing your exterior.
I’m so sick from staring at the mirror.

This is my panic,
This is my call to arms.

  1. I LOOOVE Underoath. They are amazing in concert. If you like these guys, have you ever checked out Project 86? Very similar..amazing worship themes integrated as well. The main singer for Project 86 is a youth pastor as well. Fabulous in concert as well. Had me jumping and moving and I’m usually one of those quiet ones in back :p

    1. i enjoy project 86 too. There is something very different and very rock and roll about his voice. I dig it. interesting info that he is a youth pastor. (snap) awesome.
