I’m proud to say that Thousand Foot Krutch (TFK) is a Canadian Christian rock/ hard rock band. We’ll keep these boys! They’re top notch.
Trevor McNevan is a rocker who likes to mix things up. TFK can be both very raucous, but also soft. Sometimes they even throw some rap in there. Personally I love it all, but some have critized their album Oxgen: Inhale as not being TFK.
What’s wrong with being versatile and having some softer layers? Personally, I think this is a great album. It does have it’s lounder tunes as well.
“Oxygen” is a softer reminder that we can turn to God and He will sustain us. After all He gave us life and breath.
“In My Room” is a wonderful song for those who feel like they don’t fit in. It’s also a great reminder, during these isolating times, that Jesus can meet us where we are. He’s not limited to a church building.
Last, but not least, “Give it to Me” is a bit more of a rocker song. TFK reminds us that we aren’t alone. Whatever burdens or anxieties we may have we can give them all to God. In fact, He wants us to give them to Him.
I also explained “I See Red” (from the same album) in this post [Here]
“You are my oxygen tonight. You keep me breathing. You fill me up. You give me life, and I can’t believe it. “
“I’m not sure if this is a good time or even if Your home. It’s a long long way from Your throne. But can You meet me in my room? A place where I feel safe. A place where I belong…”
Been carryin’ a weight that’s not my own. This levee’s gonna break, and I’m not sure I can hold on. And I’m not sure, how long, I can, hold off this storm. There’s a, dark cloud, right overhead.
Give it to me Just give it to me, give it to me. I’ll take it all away, just give it to me
Sometimes life gets dry, but Jesus can even bring dry bones back to life…
The Valley of Dry Bones
“The hand of the Lord was on me, and He brought me out by the Spirit of the Lord and set me in the middle of a valley; it was full of bones. He led me back and forth among them, and I saw a great many bones on the floor of the valley, bones that were very dry. He asked me, “Son of man, can these bones live?”
I said, “Sovereign Lord, You alone know.”
Then He said to me, “Prophesy to these bones and say to them, ‘Dry bones, hear the word of the Lord! This is what the Sovereign Lord says to these bones: I will make breath enter you, and you will come to life. I will attach tendons to you and make flesh come upon you and cover you with skin; I will put breath in you, and you will come to life. Then you will know that I am the Lord.’” [Continued]Ezekiel
“No created power could restore human bones to life. God alone could cause them to live. Skin and flesh covered them, and the wind was then told to blow upon these bodies; and they were restored to life. The wind was an emblem of the Spirit of God, and represented His quickening powers. The vision was to encourage the desponding Jews; to predict both their restoration after the captivity, and also their recovery from their present and long-continued dispersion. It was also a clear intimation of the resurrection of the dead; and it represents the power and grace of God, in the conversion of the most hopeless sinners to Himself.Matthew Henry’s Concise Commentary
