Happy to "sit outside heaven’s door," lead vocalist Jason Wade wants to discern the voice of God on "Breathing." Other songs don’t identify the Lord by name, but have a distinctly spiritual flavor. The singer honors a source of strength and peace ("Everything"), expresses an abiding love and desire for truth ("Hanging by a Moment") and wants to hear a certain authoritative voice amid life’s "Cling and Clatter." "Simon" and "Quasimodo" empathize with people who’ve been hurt or abused. A man struggles to embrace blind faith on "Unknown." Elsewhere, the artist lauds a rock-solid friend ("Only One") and humbly admits that he doesn’t have all the answers to life’s questions, yet is committed to "Trying."
It’s fashionable for acts in this genre to get tangled in misery while exploring the cobwebs of the cosmos. Not Lifehouse. The questions are sincere. While not claiming to have all the answers, this group believes they exist and seems to be searching in the right places.
