Omniscience, Identity and Christian Rock

Sometimes there's an awesome expression of a theological truth to be found in my sometimes cheesy and somewhat angsty library of Christian rock. Take Falling Up's "Flights," for example. This song's chorus makes for an amazing expression of the truths of action and identity found in God as well as the inescapable nature and omniscience of God. Much more eloquent than I think I ever expected to hear when I got this album way back in 2007 or whenever. I got the lyrics from here, with one by-ear correction, but I honestly can't endorse whatever ads they put on the left. Especially if whatever you see is like what I saw. Lyrics for "Flights" run:

They search, They light
This place a face of the fearless
To wait the night
It's calm but you're starting to hear this
It moves so fast, stopped hearts but holding on faster
Come back, like that, and you know that

Chorus
You will find
That I'm everywhere you go
And I'm all the places you will not be
You will find
That I'm everywhere you go
And I'm all the things that you want to be

It leaves this light
This sparkles broken inside you
I swear it hides
This siren's moving it's way through
The race we hear
The fall of the wind and the whispers
The take, so clear, and you know that

Chorus

Constantly moving your heart is just wasting away
Endlessly waiting this life is just slipping away

Chorus

Thats why I enjoy the NoScript and AddBlock Plus addons for Firefox. Kills the krap. This way, I don't have to see those Facebook and Myspace adds for "Christian Porn".
