about

The making of this track dates back to November 2011, when Mark Tanner was still in the group. Christo Tracey initially wrote the lyrics to this song, and it was originally meant to be a song for the side of Life. However, the words did not help in healing nor in spreading the message, and we decided to rewrite them. Christo worked on half of the new lyrics while Troisnyx worked on the other half in early 2012.

Fast forward to 5 November 2012, when Richard White joined the group: the song was given a new lease of life with a zesty recording.

Friends, we present to you, Declaration.

lyrics

I
Can you lift your head up high
Can you look up to the sky
Recognise the maker who is there?
Is despair the path you choose?
No-one bringing you good news
Brought to you by loving prayer

Sitting, faithless in your room
Spelling out an inner doom
Reach your hand out to Him, He is there
A life of faith will help you grow
And the Lord God you will know
Seek his truth, with every care
Till you are thirsting
Till you are thirsting

II
Everybody knows the light
Will shine and make the darkness bright
Scatter shadows of the past away
And we'll be there when people call
Picking up the ones who fall
And carry them along the way

We are here to stoke the fire
We are here to quench desire
For the truth you want which we'll impart
We are here to speak the truth
We are here to challenge you
Leave you burning deep inside your heart
Till you're uneasy
Till you're uneasy

III
At the turning of the tide
When the battles all subside
There is only one left standing high
So come into the ring and fight
Hit at me with all your might
I'll survive the fires that never die...

IV
Everybody knows the light
Will shine and make the darkness bright
Scatter shadows of the past away
And we'll be there when people call
Picking up the ones who fall
And carry them along the way
