The Resistance


By: Josh Garrels

I was born into a system constructed for failure
It’s a sinking ship being manned by drunken sailors
An escape artist behind the bars of a jailer
An asthmatic attack and they withhold the inhaler
If the shoe doesn’t fit what good is a tailor?
In the midst of this crisis please cancel the gala
Without a symphony there’s no need for a prelude
To foreshadow what’s to come.
See the secret committees commence with their meetings
To make red tape in response to simple questions
Questions threaten the perception of a beneficial system,
A pyramid scheme, with its cogs and its pistons
Mechanization of man, making more and more
Live in a miserable existence
How can so few claim so many victims?
And this begs the question
My rest is a weapon against the oppression
Of man’s obsession to control things
Look at the long line of make believe kings
And the lord of the flies wants you to kiss his ring
Follow new rules with invisible strings
And become a puppet in a diabolical scheme
How do good men become a part of the regime?
They don’t believe in resistance.Hold fast like an anchor in the storm
We will not be movedLesson number one,
Overcome every fear of regret and confusion
It’s all an illusion, delusion
Sent to disconnect the holy fusion
Of the spirit and the flesh
Every mortal breath’s meant to bring forth fire
But only when the fear of death gets consumed on the funeral pyre
So let the flames rise higher
And let every man be considered a liar
If he doubts the goodness and faithfulness of God
Itching ears will compulsively nod in approval
When unbelief is taught in all our temples and schools
But God can restrain the madness of a fool
He can bring His truth through the mouth of a mule
And you can move a mountain without any tools
It just takes the faith of a little seed
To make a way through what might seem to be impossibility,
And the ability will match the occasion
The outcome will defy explanation
The liberation will not be televised
When it arrives like lightning in the skiesHold fast like an anchor in the storm
For your love, we will rise and overcome
Through the fireHold fast my people and sing
Through peace and through suffering
All for the joy that it brings, to be free
It’s gonna cost us everything
To follow one Lord and King
True love endures everything
To be freeHold fast, like an anchor in the storm
We will not be moved
