Fear the Truth (512 Studios Mix)

Story Behind The Song

I wrote this sitting in church, listening to the story of Daniel. The lyrics seemed to write themselves. The song came together in a day and is one of the oldest songs in my catalog. I've released a Demo version of this song before, but this version is the best by far.

Song Description

This song is from the Bible, Daniel, Chapter 5, where Daniel is warning the King that he's heading for a fall...worshiping false idols and failing to be humble in the face of God.

Lyrics

VERSE
I see the writing on the wall
Nobody else can see
It tells a lot about a coming fall
It's time to listen to me

CHORUS
You fear the truth
You turn and walk away
You fail to humble yourself
The end is near
The time has come to pay
Drop to your knees and pray

VERSE
You praise your Gods of gold and stone
You know you've lost your way
You know you've failed to honor one
Who brought you here today

PRECHORUS
Don't fear the truth
Time is not in your side
Don't fear the truth
His arms are open wide

CHORUS
You fear the truth
You turn and walk away
You fail to humble yourself
The end is near
The time has come to pay
Drop to your knees and pray

VERSE
You find the days of your reign are few
You have been weighed and failed
Your kingdom has been taken down
You know your life is the cost

SOLO

CHORUS
You fear the truth
You turn and walk away
You fail to humble yourself
The end is near
The time has come to pay
Drop to your knees and pray

CHORUS
You fear the truth
You turn and walk away
You fail to humble yourself
The end is near
The time has come to pay
Drop to your knees and pray
