So Much For Substitutes
by downhere



 

We want to focus on what we can't see
But this scene is just a fading beauty
In this life, when sorrow steals our joy
We want to walk beyond our circumstances
But our feet run to our own advances
Would you be our way and lead your people on

Oh, Remind us that we have not reached home
Remind us that we have not reached home

Pull apart our good intentions
Break the walls of these dimensions
Paint a picture of our eternity
And we'll sing the songs of Heaven
Be the chorus you have chosen
We need Your grace
To echo the saints and journey on

Oh, Remind us that we have not reached home (we have not)
Oh, Remind us that we have not reached home

As the angels sing Your praises
Let us not forget Your graces
Which far outweigh a world of dreams

Would you remind us that we have not reached home
Oh, Remind us that we have not reached home

Remind us that we have not reached home (we have not reached home)
Oh, Remind us that we have not reached home


Written by Jason Germain / Jason Ingram

Behind the Song:
Late in the recording process, Marc wrote a song called "What It's Like" which ended up being our first single. At the same time, Jason had been working on a theme for the chorus of "Not Reached Home" that the band really liked. But we were stumped as to what to do with the verses. So Jason got together with Jason Ingram (a friend we got to know on the SonicFlood tour) to work on the verses, while Marc worked on the bridge of the song. We feel that "Not Reached Home" is a fitting final piece of the album's puzzle. It communicates an important theme in our music -- a sort of benediction that in all ways, we would be motivated by our final destination. - Jason Germain (downhere)
