One of the most notable features of this song is the haunting cello track by our friend, Phil Peterson. We wanted this track to be full of 'sounds', so we kept adding things and building it up. The result is a strangely emotional song.
We get persuaded by things that look right -- that look inviting. Though they may sometimes fill temporary needs, they can never fulfill us. If we then choose to chase after these things, we are left to deal with the results of our actions (\"i gave and i gave and i gave 'til i'd nothing left except consequence\"). In the midst of all of this, the chorus is dealing with the knowledge of our wrong actions (\"why do we stand there in constant fear though so aware\"), when what we need to do is turn to the Lord and throw these things down at His feet. Amen.
