02. Turn It Up

For the Love of the Game
by Pillar


I can only imagine
All of the magic that would happen
If we all come together
I could sing of your love forever
Tell me I'm never alone
And that I'm going home
I can hear sounds of melodies
And the remedy
That comes when you
Lift me up
From the flood in the sea of faces
And I promise you we'll make it

‘Cause In the healing rain
There is beauty from pain
But the scars remain
I will find a way
To take my life and
And give it all away
And I'll be pressing on
Feel this phenomenon

Turn it up
Throw your hands in the air
All the people everywhere
Let me hear you say
Woah, oh, oh, woah, oh, oh
Yeah, Yeah
Turn it up
Let the stereos play
All the people everywhere
Let me hear you say
Woah, oh, oh, woah, oh, oh
Yeah, Yeah

I'm learning to breathe again
Maybe we'll meet again
I hear whispers in the dark
Even the snakes have hearts
So we break free
Won't you breathe into me
I'm drawing a black line
Define the great line
Maybe I just feel so alive
It’s a super good feeling
So I’ll keep waiting

Will your momentum change
Take a typical day
That you gotta engage
Don't wait for your heart to cave in
Give the freaks something to believe in
It’s about a burning fire

If you like it turn it up let me hear you shout
If you want it turn it up gotta live it loud
If you like it turn it up let me hear you shout
If you want it turn it up gotta live it loud

Behind the Song:
Pillar’s tribute to Christian music. “Every lyric in that song is an album title or song title from another Christian band, with the exception of two lines. All in all, there are 34 bands represented in that song, bands whose songs have influenced us and impacted us,” Rob explains. Here’s an example of one line: “In the healing rain (Michael W. Smith)/There is beauty for pain (Superchic[k])/But the scars remain (Disciple).” He also says, “In preparation for writing and recording For the Love of the Game, I listened to a whole lot of Christian music. Prior to Pillar, I didn’t know the Christian music world existed. Over the last year, I’ve fully come to understand just how well the Christian music world is established. In today’s music market, Christian bands are starting to set musical standards. Bands like Underoath, for example, are really making a huge impact on the music scene, and that is really cool to me. So, I’ve spent more time than ever listening to Christian music.” And, Rob notes, he’s proud to be a part of a genre that knows how to rock even as it delivers an eternally life-changing message of hope: “I want people to know that we are a Christian band. We love the fact of who we are. This is what we’re a part of. So don’t be ashamed of Christian music. Turn it up!”
