Song of the Day: Petra - Mine Field

By in Articles, Music Videos, Video Flashback | 1 Comment

So I’m going a long ways back for this SOTD. But, the truth is that it brings still holds true today. Pulling from 3 different Bible verses, the lyrics deal with going through life while dealing with different choices that can take us down a dark path. The most relevant is 1 Peter 5:8  “Be sober, be vigilant, because your adversary the devil walketh about as a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.” I really do miss the days when my fave music was directly tied to the Bible & the lyrics sheet had the scripture reference. The music video is grainy so I also added another version. And yep, that is bassist Ronny Cates talking in the beginning. This song is so powerful to me.

Smell the burning powder?
There’s danger in the air
A voice from deep inside is telling you, ‘you must beware’
Then enemy is watching
Every step you take
To find his opportunity in every choice you make

And it’s no game
When someone lives without His grace
And who’s to blame
When it blows up in their face

It’s a mine field – you’d better follow Him through
God knows the way – you’d better stick like glue
It’s a mine field – better stay on His heels
’cause the enemy kills and the enemy steals
So keep your head down and keep you eyes peeled
’cause life is…
Life is a mine field

Think the grass is greener?
You’d better look around
Everywhere you look another casualty is found
The enemy is waiting
For you to start to run
Waiting like an itchy finger on a loaded gun

Some may feel
They can wander out too far
They may heal
But they may always wear the scar

Better leave the navigation to the One who knows the Way
He will bring illumination
He will light your path each day

It’s a mine field – better watch where you tread
Step off the path and you could end up dead
It’s a mine field – better stay on His heels
’cause the enemy kills and the enemy steals
So keep your head down and keep your eyes peeled
’cause life is…
Life is a mine field
