Thousand Foot Krutch, “E For Extinction”

Thousand Foot Krutch’s E For Extinction is the fifth single – can you believe it? Six singles off a Christian CD?? – off the Canadian rock band’s brilliant Welcome to the Masquerade (Tooth and Nail) CD, following Bring Me to Life, Forward Motion, Fire It Up and Already Home. E For Extinction is blazing hot at rock radio: it’s the fastest growing airplay track at Christian Rock, and is one of the most added as well. Thousand Foot Krutch’s heavy alt-rock sound couldn’t be more in focus with this, and I’m surprised E For Extinction was considered as the fifth single, and not released earlier. Trevor McNevan couldn’t sound more confident in his subject matter than with this track, and I’m predicting a final five finish for E For Extinction, with a #1 peak not too out of the question (but difficult because of single fatigue; it is, after all, still the fifth single off the CD). If its trajectory continues at this pace, it should land in the Top 10 in about a month and a half, with a final peak sometime around the third or fourth week of October.

Thousand Foot Krutch

I’m not the same as yesterday
Ooh… It’s hard to explain
How things have changed
But I’m not the same as before
And I know there’s so much more ahead
I can barely believe that I’m here
And I won’t surrender quietly
Step up and watch me go

Break down, ya really want it?
Wanna make a scene?
Show me what ya mean
Let’s get it started
Let me see whatcha got
Can ya take it up a notch
Don’t think you got it
Can’t handle the pressure?
Get, off, stop talkin’ about it
Gotta make this count, let’s go

When we move
We camouflage ourselves
We stand in the shadows waiting
We live for this and nothing more
We are what you created

I can feel the storm
The winds have changed
Ooh… ‘Cause we’re worlds apart
But just the same
But we won’t leave the way that we came
And I know there’s so much more ahead
I can barely believe that we’re here
We won’t surrender quietly
Step up and watch it go

Are you ready? Are ya ready?
Are ya ready for me?
Are you ready? Are ya ready?
Are ya ready to see?
