04. Opposite Way

Opposite Way
by Leeland



 

Living in the same town
For all these years
Doing the same old things
Hanging with the same crowd
And itís starting to get crippling
Youíve never felt in place
And you tell yourself itís all okay
But somethingís different today
You want to run the opposite way

And it seems like youíre locked in a cage
And you need to find a way of escape
When everyone is setting the pace
Itís okay to run the opposite way

The Father sent His Son down
The light of men
The cross He bore was crippling
Rejected in His own town
They couldnít see the sun shining
He knelt in the garden and prayed
Father, let this cup pass from me
Itís not Your will for me to stay
Your will for me is the opposite way

And it seemed like He was locked in a cage
And He couldnít find away of escape
But through the cross He conquered the grave
My Jesus ran the opposite way

Oh, and through the cross He conquered the grave
Oh, He ran the opposite way
Yeah, through the cross He conquered the grave
So you could run the opposite way

Behind the Song:
"Jack and I wrote the first verse, which deals with living in the same town all your life. Thereís certainly nothing wrong with that; this song is talking about the state of mind youíre living in. I think complacency is one of the biggest issues that confuses our generation, and everyone else, for that matter. But there has to be a point where we step over the line and donít live like a mediocre Christian any longer. The chorus talks about being locked in a cage and needing to find escape, while the second verse addresses the idea of Jesusí life and what He did on this earth. It talks about the way He spoke and the way He lived, while He also gave the opposite answers to everyoneís questions about the kingdom of God." - Leeland Mooring (Leeland)
