Worshiping to Evanescence

September 13, 2009

I believe in you
I’ll give up everything just to find you
I have to be with you to live to breathe
You’re taking over me

Evanescence, Taking Over Me

Shelly: “Dad, what’s this song about?”

Me: “What would you like it to be about?”

Shelly: “I don’t know.”

Me: “Well for me, it’s a worship song.”

Shelly: “I guess I can see that.”

Me: “Or maybe it’s just a song about obsessive love. It can be what you like. But I worship to it.”

Shelly: “You worship to everything.”

Me: “That’s right. Because the whole world is flowing that direction, if you pay attention.”

As an American missionary kid who grew up in Japan, I'm a child of two cultures, while not fully belonging to either. This gives me a sightly different view of the world.

  1. There are other Evanescence songs I worship to, of course. And music by other groups. And crickets.

  2. You worship to everything”…that’s really high praise, imho.
    Ahhhh…Evanescence….great stuff.
    Sorry about the posting this in the wrong place earlier. :S

  3. Thanks for straightening it out, Rich. Evanescence is, of course, a fairly easy pick. What are some more off-the-path things that help you worship?
