Contact.

As Cities Burn.  One of my favorite bands and favorite lyricist.  Cody Bonnette has a way of expressing his faith in a very honest and personal way.  He is not scared to write lyrices from a place of doubt or defeat.  This is a song called Contact from their album Come Now Sleep which in my opinion is a masterpiece.  One of the best cds I have ever listened to both musically and lyrically.  The two major themes of the album are doubt and grace…both written in way that causes me to confront my own issues, pray, and love God.  I want to hear some thoughts on this song…

Hearts aren’t really our guides.
We are truly alone.
‘Cause God ain’t up in the sky,
Holding together our bones.

Remember we used to speak.
Now I’m starting to think,
Your voice was really my own,
Bouncing off the ceiling back to me.

God, this can’t be.
God, this can’t be,
God, could it be that all we see is it?
is this it?
is this it?

Won’t you come down, heaven.
Won’t you come down?
Won’t you cut through the clouds?
Won’t you come down?

Oh, my heaven, why do you have doors to close?
Do you have clouds to stop his voice on the way down?

God, this can’t be.
God, this can’t be,
God, could it be that all we see is it?
Is this it?

God, does grace reach to this side of madness?
‘Cause I know this can’t be,
The great peace we all seek.

Won’t you come down, heaven.
Won’t you come down?
Won’t you cut through the clouds?
Won’t you come down?

Did your clouds stop his voice?
and brother have you found the great peace that we all seek?
you say take a look around
if there’s a God then he must be asleep
God must be asleep
