Loud Song - Thought Provoking Lyrics

I usually listen to Slacker Radio while I shave and today this song came on. It is called "Afterlife," and it is by the band Switchfoot. The song is loud but the message is good. Here are the lyrics:

I've tasted fire, I'm ready to come alive
I can't just shut it up and fake that I'm alright
I'm ready now, I'm not waiting for the afterlife

The way I feel inside, the way the day begins
I'm ready now, I'm not waiting for the other side
I'm ready now, I'm ready now

'Cause everyday the world is made
A chance to change but I feel the same
And I wonder why would I wait till I die to come alive
I'm ready now, I'm not waiting for the afterlife, yeah

I still believe we can live forever
You and I, we begin forever now, forever now, forever
I still believe in us together
You and I, we're here together now
Forever now, forever now or never now

'Cause everyday the world is made
A chance to change but I feel the same
And I wonder why would I wait till I die to come alive
I'm ready now, I'm not waiting for the afterlife

Everyday, a choice is made
Everyday, I choose my fate
And I wonder why would I wait
Till I die to come alive, to come alive

Everyday, everyday, everyday, I still feel the same
And I wonder why would I wait till I die to come alive
I'm ready now, I'm not waiting for the afterlife
I'm ready now, I'm ready now, I'm ready now, I'm ready
I'm ready now, I'm not waiting for the afterlife.

It takes me back to John 10:10, "Christ came that we would have life, and that we would have it more abundantly."

You were created for greatness. Christ lives in you TODAY. How are you coming alive?
