Stand Your Ground (music video)

Posted on Updated on

LIVING-ROOM VIDEO #78, “Stand Your Ground!” I just completed this song last night when the two final verses came to me. It’s a song of encouragement in these curiouser and curiouser times. The heart of the song is in the line, “Find out who’s really at the helm!” Try to imagine it with a full band and epic sound, because that’s what it needs! If you want to know more, then just click and watch the video. Here are the full lyrics:

Thunder rolls — dark knell tolls
with the distant sound of drums.
Soon you’ll see, portentously,
how the final curtain comes.

Surely now, you can see how
softly shod can turn to boots.
Woefully, soon you’ll see
how a fool becomes a brute.

[Refrain]
Don’t let anyone dissuade you.
Stay true
to who you’re created to be —
stand your ground, then you’ll be free.

It’s so clear darkness and fear
are contagious to the blind.
Pray for sight — to receive light;
you’ll get wisdom, so I find.

Don’t let dark clouds be your shroud;
know what lies beyond this realm.
Discover more, pass through the door;
Find out who’s really at the helm!

[Refrain]
Don’t let anyone dissuade you.
Stay true
to who you’re created to be —
stand your ground, then you’ll be free.

The fear you feel will soon be healed
if you stand against the tide.
Real strength flows and courage grows
when love of truth eclipses pride.

Take my hand — make a stand;
no more will you walk alone.
Open your eyes & make yourself wise;
soon darkness will be overthrown.

[Refrain]
Don’t let anyone dissuade you.
Stay true
to who you’re created to be —
stand your ground, then you’ll be free.
