If we’re gonna walk, we walk as lions

Skillet kicks off their North American tour tomorrow in Colorado. The 40 dates will take them across the U.S. and Canada through the end of the year. With this, there are two things we know for certain. 1.) Skillet fans from all over will be coming together and 2.) the bands profound lyrics will positively move thousands each and every night.

With 2016’s Unleashed, the Skillet now has 10 diverse records over the course of their 21-year career. Navigating through and settling on just 10 sets for this column was no easy task.

As I compiled the final list, I found that each album was represented and that the inspiring lyrics come in all shapes and sizes — some in the form of an entire song and some in just nine words.

“I Can”

Do you really love my soul, even after I hated you? 
Do you really know my name, can I really come to you? 
Are you really more faithful than the changing of the seasons and the morning sun? 
Do you really know my name, can I really come to you? 
I can, I don’t care if the rooster crows 
I can

“Hey You, I Love Your Sole”

Love doesn’t care to receive what it gives 
Bleeding compassion to extreme

“Shout to the Lord”

Mountains bow down and the seas will roar
At the sound of your name

The fear tries to take me
The flesh tries to pull
Blackness all around me
But I’m undefeatable

“Collide “— the ENTIRE song

“Whispers in the Dark”

When darkness comes, I’ll light the night with stars

“Awake and Alive”

I’m awake I’m alive
Now I know what I believe inside
Now it’s my time
I’ll do what I want ’cause this is my life
Here, right here
Right now, right now
Stand my ground and never back down
I know what I believe inside
I’m awake and I’m alive


Sound it off, this is the call
Rise in revolution
It’s our time to change it all,
Rise in revolution
Unite and fight, to make a better life
Everybody one for all,
Sound off, this is the call, tonight we rise

“Feel Invincible”

You’re making me strong, you’re making me stand,
Never will fall, never will end.
Shot like a rocket up into the sky,
Nothing can stop me tonight

You make me feel invincible, earthquake, powerful,
Just like a tidal wave, you make me brave.
You’re my titanium, fight song, raising up,
Like the road of victory in a stadium.
Who can touch me? ’Cause I’m, I’m made of fire
Who can stop me tonight? I’m hard wired!
You make me feel,


If we’re gonna fly, we fly like eagles
Arms out wide
If we’re gonna fear, we fear no evil
We will rise
By your power, we will go
By your spirit, we are bold
If we’re gonna stand, we stand as giants
If we’re gonna walk, we walk as lions
We walk as lions
