Album: Burning like the Midnight Sun (2010)


  • Hinting at spiritual warfare, this song's lyrics were composed by The Choir's drummer, Steve Hindalong, who told us: "Late one night on a tour, maybe 20 years ago, we were all standing by the edge of the road somewhere in the Dakotas. I don't recall why. Maybe somebody needed to smoke or pee or something. Off in the distance we heard a thunderous rumble and saw a rolling shadow. Had we been considerably further away, we might have imagined it being some supernatural phenomenon. But it became evident that it was an actual herd of wild horses. Sometimes mystical meanings are errantly assigned to natural occurrences. Infinitely more is hidden than is known. And I humbly revere spiritual forces. But I know Christ will win that battle. He already has, in fact. Draw near. No fear."
