Hero (3:06)

Cover of Awake

From Awake and 10 other releases

“This song is the platform over which the whole record was written. Basically every day seems to get weirder, darker and scarier with thousands of people losing their homes and hurting over a wide variety of reasons. You see so much negativity on the news, especially this sense of violence that’s getting really crazy. With all this going on, it’s easy to feel on the edge, but no matter how dark it gets, there’s always hope in a new day and staying positive is the first step. And when you boil it all down, Christ is the one who gives us a reason to live and He’s our “Hero” who’s fighting for all of this oppression and injustice. ” - John Cooper (Skillet)

According to the Hero Songfacts, this song, along with the rest of the album was helmed by the Grammy-nominated producer Howard Benson.

I'm just a step away
I'm just a breath away
Losin' my faith today
