Music Monday: Inertia

This week’s Music Monday comes from a little known band, Awaken. The song is entitled “Inertia” and is lyrically one of my favorites. I also love the sound behind the words. It is unique to Awaken and one that is just captivating. Truth be told, their entire debut album is great all the way through. I catch myself listening to this one quite often. If you would like to hear more songs by them, here is a link to their profile on ReverbNation. “Inertia” is an accurate┬árepresentation of how we live our lives as believers. It encompasses the struggles that we deal with daily and how we always have to stay focused on Him.


Awaken Inertia Lyrics

If you lean toward the devil
For just a moment in time
He could take more than
You ever meant to give

And slowly change everything
You were inside
Until you can’t remember
Who you are any more

Swimming upstream
Against the current of the world
Takes its toll
And you feel like giving in…

As I’m catching myself leaning,
Your hands are pulling me,
But I keep hearing myself repeating,
“You’ll never take the rest of me”

And as I’m crawling through your scheming
Your chains keep dragging me,
But I keep hearing myself repeating,
“You never get the best of me”

If you end up giving
A dark moment second glance
It could be the one
That never lets you come back

Killing what’s inside softly
Until your focus delays
But we move in constant motion
To reach another day

An awakening to catch
And hold on to what we search for
To keep ourselves from drowning
In the waves of our mistakes

As I’m catching myself leaning,
Your hands are pulling me,
But I keep hearing myself repeating,
“You’ll never take the rest of me”

And as I’m crawling through your scheming
Your chains keep dragging me,
But I keep hearing myself repeating,
“You never get the best of me”

The current is dragging us under,
The current is dragging us under,
But we keep reaching for the surface

The night winds keep blowing us backwards,
The night winds keep blowing us backwards,
But we keep running to the light

And there are so many forces against us,
There are so many forces against us,
But we keep running to the sky

As I’m catching myself leaning,
Your hands are pulling me,
But I keep hearing myself repeating,
“You’ll never take the rest of me”

And as I’m crawling through your scheming
Your chains keep dragging me,
But I keep hearing myself repeating,
“You never get the best of me”
