Watch You Crawl
by Red

Album: Until We Have Faces (2011)

Songfacts®:

  • This track from the Christian Rock band Red's third full-length album, Until We Have Faces has the subject matter of fighting off the devil. Singer Michael Barnes explained to Artist Direct: "We've had a couple of songs like that on past records. On the first record, it was 'Wasting Time.' It's that anthem song yelling at the devil saying, 'You don't own me. I'm going to watch you crawl.' It's really an empowering song. I love all kinds of music from the harder stuff to the ballad-y thing. For me as a musician, I don't like to go in one area such as hardcore screaming all the time. I like how there's a variety. It can get really emotional with the screams, and then there will be this soft, tender moment which will open up another whole emotional level for some people out there."
