“Here We Go Again” From Atlas Rhoads Now Available for Radio Servicing

posted in: Featured, News | 0

Song Background:

This song came from a deeply rooted reality that each of the band members face in different ways. I believe when a human presses into a relationship with the holy Creator of the world, the journey of sanctification and the pursuit of holiness is met with a very heavy and violent battle of the flesh. I believe the awareness and hatred of the flesh directly correlates to one’s nearness to and love for the Father. I think that’s what we were experiencing during the season of writing this song. We have each grown in our spiritual journey immensely this year, and have continued to grasp the seriousness and weight of this battle. The battle may look very different for each Christian… whether it’s fighting the lust in your eyes, facing depression, fear,  laziness.. or whatever it may be. Here We Go Again simply portrays the life of a follower of Jesus, and the many monsters we agree to face in this beautiful journey of KNOWING Him. There is a specific line I would like to highlight:

“But oh, there is hope within the fight, this struggle brings one truth to light; a dead man does not fight, he has forsaken life. 

What you feed will truly grow, and what you starve will surely die. Resistance won’t survive, it must not survive.”

Simply stated, the reality that we ARE facing this “resistance” should bring hope and joy to our spirits. James encourages us by saying, “Find it pure joy my brothers when facing trials of various kinds.” 

The second line in the bridge was inspired by the story of the two dogs that were always fighting each other (one was named spirit, and the other named flesh). The man who owned these dogs was once asked “which one of these dogs wins the fight?” He responded, “the dog I feed the most.”

Run the race, hold onto Hope, and press into Jesus.

Lyrics

Verse 1
I dreamt through the night
I blame the alarm,
but it’s all in my mind
Oh, what’s wrong with me?
I want to be free.

Verse 2
I feel this cold resistance
Eating away at who I’m born to be
Oh I want to be free
God, I wanna be free
A dark gravity

 

Verse 3
It seems those little demons
Have come out to play again with me
Oh, I wanna be free
I wanna be free
What’s wrong with me?

Chorus
A vicious cycle wars within
A battle I can’t seem to win
Here we go again. Here we go again.

Life is slipping from my veins
And I’m the only one to blame. Here we go again. Here we go again. Here we go again

Bridge
But oh, There is hope within the fight
The struggle brings one truth to light
A dead man does (cannot) not fight
He’s forsaken life

What you feed will truly grow, what you starve will surely die.
Resistance won’t survive..
It must not survive.

Chorus
A vicious cycle wars within
A battle I can’t seem to win
Here we go again. Here we go again.

A vicious cycle wars within
A battle I can’t seem to win
Here we go again. Here we go again.

Life is slipping from my veins
And I’m the only one to blame. Here we go again. Here we go again. Here we go again
