For the Love of the Game
by Pillar


Light It Up

Training day is over
It’s been laid on the line
I'll give this all I've got
And I'll find my time to shine
I will settle for no less
Than the best I've got to give
Only the strong survive
When they try to take you down

Toe to toe and pound for pound
It’s time to step up it’s time to throw it down
There's nothing you say that could ever fade me
Serving up another lesson learned
Light it up and let the fire burn
There's nothing you say that could ever change me
Toe to toe and pound for pound
Step right up its time to throw down

The cage awaits the moment
The tension pushes through
The stage is set to showdown
I'm not turning my back on you
Face to face with the enemy
Giving in to you I refuse
Somebody's gotta win
And I don't know how to lose

Behind the Song:
This track is another dynamic rocker that focuses on the spiritual battle every believer needs to engage in fully. The time for preparation has passed (“Training day is over”), and now it’s time to meet our spiritual enemy head on: “Toe to toe, pound for pound/It’s time to step up/It’s time to throw it down/ ... Face to face with the enemy/Giving in to you, I refuse/Somebody’s gotta win/And I don’t know how to lose.” “When it comes to the spiritual realm,” Rob says, “it’s a reality. As Christians, we may not feel like dwelling on it, but that doesn’t make it any less real. There’s a battle going on in the spiritual realm—it’s a straight-up, no-holds-barred, cutthroat fight. We can either choose to engage or choose to ignore it. And Satan wants us to ignore it, because the more we do, the better off he is. But anyone who ignores the battle is right where Satan wants them. But for those of us who are devout followers of Christ, we have to choose to step into battle every day.”
