01. For The Love Of The Game

For the Love of the Game
by Pillar


Consumed by reputation
It’s what they say that gets you down
You find new motivation
Inside this new love that you found
It’s now your navigation
To keep your head in the game ‘til the end
Your final destination
Keeps you focused on the win

Count me in but don't count me out
You can't shut me up
You can't shut me down

Fight through the hurt
Fight through the pain
Without the ache
There is no gain
And we live our lives
For the love of the game

And we will rise
This is our time
Don't let the chances of our lifetime pass us by
And we will rise
This is our time
We'll give this everything we've got
For the love of the game

Reach for new elevation
Let’s see just how high we can go
Full blown determination
Will take us further than we know
My own anticipation
Keeps the fire from burning out
It’s time for domination
No one will ever take us down

I won't give up, I won't give in

Behind the Song:
The album opener, and title-track, is a heavy, fast anthemic track that celebrates giving all you’ve got and putting forth your best effort in the Christian life. The chorus challenges listeners, “Fight through the hurt/Fight through the pain/Without the ache/There is no gain/And we live our lives for the love of the game.” Rob Beckley says he drew inspiration for the song from several sources, including the Apostle Paul’s admonition to “run in such a way as to get the prize” (1 Cor. 9:24) and from professional athletes’ absolute dedication to their sport. “Think of how a football player is constantly preparing. In the off-season, there’s training and preparation. There is never truly ‘time off’ from the game,” Rob observes. “As the Church, we need to put in the time and training to be everything that God has for us.” Finally, Rob hopes fans will be able to tell how much the members of Pillar love their work. “We love what we get to do. We get to say that we play rock ‘n’ roll for a living. We get to see people’s lives changed. We get to do something fun and encouraging and motivating and life-changing all at the same time.”
