02. Controversy

On A Search In America
by Dizmas


Hes in a city not too far away
And many go to see him
Confess! Confess, my people cry
But they do not see the still frame in my mind

And I know, I know He loves me still
And I know, I know He loves me still
But I can see the controversy
I can see the controversy

I can see the controversy!
I can see it in this
I can see the controversy!
I can see it in this

And I will decrease so you can increase

Yeah, lets get this started

Ive got a message inside me
And I cannot withhold it
I plead and cry, these people die
And they still do not see the spear in his side

I would wish that you could see me
In this controversy

Behind the Song:
"The inspiration came one day when doing devotions in the Bible. One story I never paid attention to was when Jesus came to town not too far from where John the Baptist was ministering. Jesus started to baptize in the city and everyone would go to John with what I sensed was a vibe of hey, that guys stealing your job! But instead of getting defensive, John looks up with humility because hes more worried about living out his faith in front of people than explaining why Jesus seems to be moving in on his turf." - Zach Zegan (Dizmas)

"Josh was jamming to the verse with the riff and I was messing around with the beat-the tom and snare- kind of just fleshing out the original idea. It took many months to get where its at since we were writing it mostly on tour. Around that time we were listening a lot to Princes latest record and Maroon Five, so Id say it has a pretty intricate and eclectic mix." - Clayton Hunt (Dizmas)
