for KING & COUNTRY – burn the ships (Official Music Video)


How did we get here? We’re cast away, on a lonely shore I can see in your eyes, dear It’s hard to take for a moment more We’ve got to Burn the ships Cut the ties Send a flare into the night Say a prayer Turn the tide Dry your tears and wave goodbye Step into a new day We can rise up from the dust and walk away We can dance upon the heartache, yeah So light a match, leave the past, burn the ships And don’t you look back Don’t let it arrest you This fear. This fear of falling again And if you need a refuge I will be right here until the end Oh, it’s time to Burn the ships Cut the ties Send a flare into the night Say a prayer Turn the tide Dry your tears and wave goodbye Step into a new day We can rise up from the dust and walk away We can dance upon the heartache, yeah So light a match Leave the past Burn the ships And don’t you look back So long to shame Walk through the sorrow Out of the fire into tomorrow So flush the pills, face the fear Feel the weight disappear We’re coming clean, we’re born again Our hopeful lungs can breathe again Oh, we can breathe again [Explosion] And step into a new day We can rise up from the dust and walk away We can dance upon the heartache, yeah So light a match Leave the past Burn the ships And don’t you look back (And don’t you look back) (And don’t you look back) “It is for freedom we have been set free.” © 2018 Word Entertainment LLC.

  2. Anyone who remembers their big sister, Rebecca Saint James, will hear the similarities in their music styles. And Luke looks a little like his sister. I really love this band, For King and Country. They've really created some powerful songs. I love the song "God Only Knows" – did you know there's another version with Dolly Parton singing with them?

  3. Just heard this song and absolutely love it!! Burn the ships and donโ€™t look back!! Too cool and so true. Thank you God for giving me a second chance at life. So very blessed and grateful. Thanks for reminding me that you donโ€™t want me to look back only forward.

  4. Just watched a video of the backstory of this song over at davidb69's channel, as told by Luke of For King & Country. It helps for sure to tell what this song means.

  5. I have a ship I think I need to burn. When I tell people about it, they usually dismiss it as if it isn't much of a problem. Please don't do that to me. If I have spent hours crying over it, and hours praying about it, are you sure you should ridicule me?? Okay, here's my Ship. I have a dog. (Yes a dog. Don't stop reading, please.) Her name is Jingle and she's usually very sweet. She comforts me when I'm crying over her, and can somehow just make me smile. But when she sees another dog, there's no stopping her. She goes insane; she's a completely different dog. She will go to lengths of chewing on her leash or lead rope, and has bitten my mom dad and me. She goes after anything in her way. We can't afford training, and honestly, I've lost hope it would even do anything. We've had her for over a year now, and I don't want to get rid of a second dog. (The first dog we tried was sweet and I loved her, but after three days we knew she wasn't right. Yes, I cried. A lot.) I couldn't deal with that emotionally. But my dad has told me (sort of jokingly) that if I ever said we could get rid of her, we would. I know it was meant as more of a joke, but if I actually said I want to get rid of her, he would. He didn't mean to, but he really made me worry so much more. It's a giant conflict going on in my mind that I can't stop and I don't know what to do!! It's been driving me crazy and I can't do it much longer. Like I said, it sounds a bit… Unimportant. But I have spent countless nights crying and praying over it, even through all of the doubt in the Lord that I've been struggling with since we got her. I just want prayers right now. If you'll pray for Jingle and I (Anna), would you drop a like? I need support right now, and likes on a comment is just about the best I'll get in this whole ordeal. Thanks, I'll I want is a simple "Help her." A hundred "Help Her"s and God's bound to listen eventually, right?

  6. Great video!!!!!๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™โคโคโคโคโค๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ˜‡. These guys have blessed my life!!!!

  7. Step into a new day. Light a match, burn the ships, burn the ships, burn the ships, dig em up then burn them again. Great song but I would have written the burn the ships part in the chorus but not in the pre chorus.

  8. I found my relationship with god thanks to my Amazing husband and have left hip hop music and found my favorite music in "For God and Country" can I get a Amen๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜‡

  9. Ok, we definitely need a backstory on how / where this was filmed. And assurances that no historic ships were harmed in the process! Lol.

  10. โ€œWe can rise up from the dust and walk awayโ€™
    Yes!! Yes we can. Our God is a great, great God and through him we can do
    all things!! Glory to God our provider and healer!! Amen! Peace to all who are diving off a burning ship!

  11. Thank you God for this song! Burn the ships I believe is a metaphor for our addictions that take us away from God and we need to burn them in order to die to these sins and be reborn through the death burial and resurrection of Christ to remind us we are free from sin and we need to get on a new ship(path) and live for God, not ourselves. I was suicidal and depressed and addicted to porn for many years and I had to burn my ships(sins) in order to have a new life. I hope this helps someone. There is hope, pray you are not alone. God loves you even if you donโ€™t love yourself.

  12. I love this song…in general…I just love it…but I love that when it's on in the car my 8 year old sings along with it in the back seat. I love that your music has inspired him to sing out. Melts my heart! Thank you!

  13. I canโ€™t wait to see you guys at Xtreme Winter this year in Gatlinburg!! Anyone else gonna be there like if you are

  14. I am currently in the process of letting go of the negative past things that have been holdding me back fror so long.

  15. Can someone tell me what it says in the writing of the beginning of the video? I can't even see it with my "cheaters"

  16. We haunt ourselves. After my depressing comment that I deleted. God delivered a message. There is so much to save. If we are saved, preserve and help the hopeless, the end of there rope, made, made bad decisions, in gang. I dreamt it all. And I could not be everywhere at once. We need to take responsibility for what God gave us.

  17. What a spirit-filled, powerful song! The kingdom of heaven is alive today and it is available to all of those who are willing to enter in it with force.

  18. I went to their recent concert in September and for those of you confused…
    This song is about how people have shame and guilt in their life we all do itโ€™s how God made us and there was a captain of a ship with crew members and he wanted to move on and go explore but everyone else was too afraid to change and go back out they were stuck in the past and he says burn the ships and nowadays it means leave the past. Often we get stuck in embarrassing moments and shame that weโ€™re too afraid to do anything else because it could happen again this song is sending the message that donโ€™t live in the past break thru into the future so the moral?
    Light a match
    Leave the past
    Burn the ships
    And donโ€™t you look back
    Because you have been made new

  19. " don't let it arrest you, the fear of falling again."ย  needed to hear that today, I have fallen so many times and so far from Father God that It hurts.

  20. In spanish: :"ESA CANCION ESTA BESTIAL! DIRECTO DEL CIELO!!! WOOOOOOOOWWW!, OK, FOR ENGLISH SPEAKERS NOW: "THAT SONG IS JUST AWESOME, STRAIGHT FROM HEAVEN! WOW!

  21. Sooo…. Anybody realize that they say to not look back, yet Joel looks back at the burning ship a ton of times. Great Song. I love the lyrics and the meaning of and behind it. Good job and keep on working.

  22. Me when I first see the title
    Mmm, interesting title…
    uses for study music (yes I know weird taste. but I LOVE this song)
    hears weird explosion sounds
    What in the world are these sounds?!
    watches video
    Pretty typical video…
    watches bombs blow up the ship
    O_o (I thought it was just a metaphor…)

  23. I have been living with a drug addict girlfriend for the past three years and I'm so tired of living in the nightmare of this life. The only thing that holds me to her is my twin girls that I had with her. If I walk away I can't take care of them myself she will not help with them the only choice I have is keep living this life and fight with her every step of the way or walk away and give the girls up for adoption. I don't have no one in my life to help me. I need a miracle in my life. Can anyone pray for me..

  24. I saw for KING & COUNTRY when they were in Little Rock. When they played this song, they told a story about a fleet of ships, and the crew wanting to go back to their old lives. But the leader of the fleet told the crews to go out and burn all the ships. That way, they can start a new life of their own. If you have a past that you donโ€™t wanna go back to, lift your hands up to God, and he will give you the strength to burn the ships in your life. I firmly believe that hearing this song, your life will change for the better. All you have to do to have a better life: cut the ties to your past, and burn your ships.

  25. AMEN!!! Thank you for coming to Abbotsford!!! So excited, such great modern christian music that speaks boldly of the goodness of God, The Father

  26. i love your music sooooooooooooooooooooooooo much in love with it๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜โคโคโคโคโคโคโคโœ…โœ…โœ…โœ…โœ…โœ…โœ…

  27. Burn the ships, let go of the past, swim to shore, walk away, keep moving forward. Trust in the Lord with of your heart, and not lean on your understanding. Proverbs 3:5

  28. "Rise up from the dust and walk away" " dance upon a heartache" and "dont look back". Hard but true we need to try to do this with the world.

  29. Love this song!! So powerful! Cant wait to see you guys again November 5, 2019!! Seen you at Hills alive, and at CR Summit in California twice. You guys rock!!

  30. This song has been such an encouragement to me! I have struggled with depression through the past few years, and I listen to this song multiple times a day! Could not be more thankful for the ministry that for King and Country has been to me! <3 Thank you for your music!

  31. I just realized the metaphor of dropping the bombs. If they wouldn't let go of the past and stay on the ship fighting they would both die, so to survive they had to let it be and leave the ship. So to real life it's like, sometimes we have to leave conflicts and "burn the ship" otherwise it will ruin our lives. Hm…

  32. Sometimes the only thing to do is to burn the past, move from situations, people or places that got us separated or distracted from God and his will! Iยดm finally stepping into the shore after burning some ships that damaged my relationship with Him. I pray for all of you to have the courage and experience this joy.

  33. This has me thinking of what i need to walk away for the Lord to work wonders in me… i have prayed so much for God to help me… im just in lost for words ๐Ÿ˜”
