01. Searching For A Savior

Rise
by Building 429



 

Just a boy with something in his heart
Says life doesn’t add up
The dreams inside
Are telling him, seek and you will find

He caught a ride and he left this town
He never came back around
Lord I miss him now but
He had to reach, to make sense of his world

We are all searching for a savior
‘Cause no one else will do
When the sky is calling you

We are all desperate for a savior
‘Cause no one else will do
When the sky is calling you
Another town a half world away
There’s a child who just can’t stay

Oh something else
Is calling her, to another place

She believes that nothing they could say
Would ever take away the pain
Of living life
Without knowing love, or amazing grace

Something’s missing from us all

We are all searching for a savior
‘Cause no one else will do
when the sky is calling you
We are all searching for savior
‘Cause no one else will do
when the sky is calling you

written by Jason Roy

Behind the Song:
"This was among the first songs we wrote for ‘Rise.’ It’s always amazed me how people from all corners of the earth search for the same thing their whole lives. Most of us are unwilling to admit it, but we are hopelessly lost in this world, and we spend our lives searching for someone or something that can save us from an insignificant life. It’s the marketing tool that every company uses, “Buy this and you’ll be happy.” But money can’t buy what we all search for. From Moscow to Sydney, from Baghdad to New York, the sky calls out our names…and something inside screams, “I wish I could just understand.” This one thing unites us in spite of all our differences – the longing to be more." - Jason Roy (Building 429)
