This is one of the first songs that Casting Crowns frontman Mark Hall ever wrote. It originally appeared on a CD that he and his youth group made years before he recorded it for Come to the Well. Hall told New Release Tuesday: "It came from a sermon by a country preacher who was on fire for God. As he preached his heart out to our little church in Alabama, he recounted the story of Ezekiel and the valley of dry bones. The whole time he preached about Ezekiel shouting down to these dead bones, I realized I was sitting in one of the deadest churches I had ever experienced. It dawned on me that I was watching a genuine man of God preach down to these pews full of dead bones. It saddened me, and my reaction was a prayer of revival that turned into this spare song. You'll hear the song go from Ezekiel in the first verse to the country preacher in the second verse and finally to a prayer for God to raise his Church again as a mighty army. It also features the encouragement that soon these risen warriors will battle again. And the only way that will happen is for us to be filled with the Spirit Wind."
The lyrics for Lesley Gore's "It's My Party" were based on actual events relating to his daughter Judy's sweet 16 party. The teenager threw a tantrum and burst into tears when her mum and dad insisted that her grandparents had to be invited.
