03. Reckless Youth

For the Love of the Game
by Pillar


Don't let emotion stop you
Don't start to hesitate
Don't let the fear you have
Inside you start to resonate

Stop buying lies they sell you
Stop wasting all our time
Start looking for the
Opportunity for us to shine

If you're afraid to fall
You'll never make the climb

We are the fearless ones
We are the loaded guns
With nothing left to lose
We are the reckless youth

We are the chosen ones
We'll never have to run
There's nothing left to lose
We are the reckless youth

Let your fear motivate you
Don't let it get you down
You've got to get up
Hold your head up high

It may be the only chance we've got
For us to save the day
No time to doubt it now
Before it gets too late

We've got to make our move
‘Cause we're the reckless youth

Stop wasting our time
Let’s step to the line
Like soldiers we fight
To the end of our lives

Let’s break the rules
But don't play the fool
‘Cause we are

Behind the Song:
“Reckless Youth” is a driving rocker that exhorts listeners to live recklessly—in the best sense of that word—in the way they express their faith. The initial inspiration, Rob says, came from a chapter of Mike Yaconelli’s book Dangerous Wonder called “Reckless Abandon.” Doing a bit more research, Rob found that one definition of the word reckless is “to act with disregard for consequence.” Applying that idea to our faith, Rob says this song is about “pursuing Christ without fear, not caring what people think but living your faith with disregard for consequence.” The chorus focuses on spiritual warfare, on facing our spiritual enemy with the ammunition that God has given us: “We are the fearless ones/We are the loaded guns/With nothing left to lose/We are the reckless youth/We are the chosen ones/We'll never have to run.” “We have nothing to fear,” Rob says. “Our victory is already claimed, and we have all the spiritual ammunition we’ll ever need, but sometimes we don’t have the discipline to know how to use it.” That means surrendering our fear as we trust God with our battles and realizing, in Rob’s words, that “I am a follower of Christ, no matter what the consequences. That’s what it means to be a ‘reckless youth.’”
