Song of the Day: Five Iron Frenzy - Every New Day

By in Articles, Song of The Day | 2 Comments

Probably my most fave song from this long time running punk/ska band. I have never seen live & I am sad. ūüôĀ¬† Anyways here are the lyrics & probably why I like it so much. Can you imagine the world where CCM radio would have this as a worship song instead of nonstop Hillsong?

When I was young, The smallest trick of light, Could catch my eye, Then life was new And every new day, I thought that I could fly. I believed in what I hoped for, And I hoped in things unseen,¬†I had wings and dreams could soar, I just don’t feel like flying anymore.¬†When the stars threw down their spears,¬†Watered Heaven with their tears, Before words were spoken, Before eternity.

Dear Father, I need you, Your strength my heart to mend. I want to fly higher, Every new day again.

When I was small, The furthest I could reach, Was not so high, then I, Thought the world was so much smaller, Feeling I could fly. Through distant deeps and skies, Behind infinity, Below the face of Heaven,
He stoops to create me.

Man versus himself. Man versus machine. Man versus the world. Mankind versus me. The struggles go on, The wisdom I lack, The burdens keep piling Up on my back. So hard to breathe, To take the next step. The mountain is high, I wait in the depths. Yearning for grace, And hoping for peace. Dear God…increase.

Healing hands Of God have mercy on our unclean souls once again. Jesus Christ, Light of the world burning bright Within our hearts forever. Freedom means love without condition, Without a beginning or an end. Here’s my heart, let it be forever Yours, only you can make every new day seem so new.

good to see i’m not the only one who gets fed up with the blandness of ccm radio. gone are those late-90s early 2000s times where a song like this might crack the airwaves of K-Love/Air-1

Five Iron never got the credit they deserved, I think. These lyrics are powerful and relevant, even today. A step up in thoughtfulness, from your average ska/punk lyrics.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
