13. Break Open The Sky

Tonight
by TobyMac



 

From the lips of desperation
Different nations, every mans cry
Comes a song of anticipation
As we wait for a crack in the sky
Side by side, we recognize that
Hope has brought us together tonight
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Break open the sky
Wont You turn off gravity so we can fly?
We wanna see Your face
So tear the roof off this place
Jesus, break open the sky

So we sing
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

We believe, and we imagine
Til the dawn of our beautiful dreams
Through the noise, I hear the voices
Melodies that are flooding our streets
Not forgotten, are your people
So let a thousand church bells ring
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Come, Jesus, come
Come quickly
Come quickly

Break open, open the sky


(Featuring Israel Houghton)

Behind the Song:
Its a reggae song. We studied a lot of Bob Marley recordings to prepare for it. We listened and listened. We recorded it on one mike and ran it through an old tape machine; everything we did, we wanted it to be absolutely authentic. The production is not modern at all; its very rootsy reggae. I feel like we really achieved the authentic sound, and Israel (Houghton) comes in as an amazing vocal.

(On Israel Houghtons guest vocals): Im a huge Israel Houghton fan. Hes just so natural in his gifting. Some people are born to do this and others try to do it, and Israel was born to do it. Hes just amazing. I called Israel and said, I want you to go on my record. So we sent it to him, and he sent us tons of vocals, and we just grabbed it and put it throughout the song. - tobyMac
