Musical Interlude - Skillet

Here's a little music to round out our Monday evening. Take two guys and two gals who really know how to rock it out and what do you get? You get one of my favorite Christian bands (that actually gets played on secular radio stations - how cool is that?) - Skillet. My favorite song off their album Comatose is "Whispers in the Dark". Unfortunately, they haven't made a video for that song yet, so here's their video for another song off that album, "Rebirthing". Like what you hear? Check out the song "Savior". Their new album, Awake was released last month and the radio single "Monster" is worth checking out too. Enjoy!


"Rebirthing" by Skillet
I lie here paralytic
Inside this soul
Screaming for you till my throat is numb
I wanna break out I need a way out
I don't believe that it's gotta be this way
The worst is the waiting
In this womb I'm suffocating

Feel your presence filling up my lungs with oxygen
I take you in
I've died

Rebirthing now
I wanna live for love wanna live for you and me
Breathe for the first time now
I come alive somehow
Rebirthing now
I Wanna live my life wanna give you everything
Breathe for the first time now
I come alive somehow

I lie here lifeless
In this cocoon
Shedding my skin cause
I'm ready to
I wanna break out
I found a way out
I don't believe that it's gotta be this way
The worst is the waiting
In this womb I'm suffocating

[Bridge:]
Tell me when I'm gonna live again
Tell me when I'm gonna breathe you in
Tell me when I'm gonna feel inside
Tell me when I'm gonna feel alive

Tell me when I'm gonna live again
Tell me when this fear will end
Tell me when I'm gonna feel inside
Tell me when I'll feel alive

Girl, thanks so much for posting that. It was exactly what I needed to hear this morning.

In fact, my eldest daughter came over and watched it with me and asked me what the song was about. I got to tell her it's about dying to self so we can live in Christ. Something for us all to think about for the day. Thanks again.
