Fading Away

Album: Storm the Gates of Hell (2007)
  • Vocalist Ryan Clark on bandsonfire.com about this song written from Demon Hunter's Christian perspective: "'Fading Away' is about waiting to hear a call from the Lord. I think we, as Christians, can get caught up waiting on a specific word from God, all the while sitting stagnant and unproductive. Sometimes it seems like we can slowly begin to fade away from the Lord as we wait for something to slap us in the face. I think in many cases God wants us to take some necessary steps in order for His will to be revealed to us. This song talks about how our own selfish attempt at life is likely to be ill fated, and how we so often live according to our own desires."
