"Rebuild" is a song written by Jon Foreman of Switchfoot and Matt Thiessen of Relient K. The song was written in conjunction with the bands' 2007 Appetite for Construction Tour, featuring members from all three bands on tour, Switchfoot, Relient K, and Ruth. Matt Thiessen sang second vocals, and Dustin Ruth of Ruth played harmonica.

All proceeds from the song download will be donated to Habitat For Humanity. It was slated to surface on iTunes, but Relient K frontman Matt Thiessen said the two bands would release the single online for free, but with an option for donation for Habitat. “So I think we’re gonna release it for free online and create a place where people can donate to Habitat,” Thiessen said.

The song was first played live on October 17, 2007 at a live show in Columbus, Ohio.

Famous quotes containing the word rebuild:

    We must not leap to the fatalistic conclusion that we are stuck with the conceptual scheme that we grew up in. We can change it, bit by bit, plank by plank, though meanwhile there is nothing to carry us along but the evolving conceptual scheme itself. The philosopher’s task was well compared by Neurath to that of a mariner who must rebuild his ship on the open sea.
    Willard Van Orman Quine (b. 1908)

    Are we talking about a church founded by the Son of God made man? Or are we talking about simply a social gathering that we can rebuild as we wish?
    Donna Steichen, U.S. opponent of women in the ministry. As quoted in Time magazine, p. 54 (November 23, 1992)

    It is the sorrow; shall it melt? Ah, water
    Would gush, flush, green these mountains and these valleys
    And we rebuild our cities, not dream of islands.
    —W.H. (Wystan Hugh)
