Disciple – The Ballad Of St. Augustine lyrics

The air is leaving here
It's getting hard to breathe, I'm choking (Matthew 13: 22)

The fracture was innocent
A miniature compromise that exploded (James 1: 15)

Inside my atmosphere
And now the paradigm is shifting (John 8: 34)

A good man was living here
Virtuous evidence has all but disappeared (James 2: 10)

Chorus 1
Right was wrong when wrong went right (Romans 1: 22; Romans 7: 15)
I'm fading
Black has turned to gray inside (Revelation 3: 16)
And I know that I need saving, can You save me? (Psalm 130: 1-8)
Take me away to where You are (John 14: 3)
Cause I won't leave without it (Genesis 32: 26)

Involuntary fast
The bread that never lasts, I'm starving (Matthew 4: 4)

Sanity shackled here
The key is in my hand, but I'm frozen (Isaiah 52: 2)

Revelation sings
Justice delivery is blinding (Proverbs 1: 2-3)

My death is imminent
I'd rather die with You than utterly alone (2 Samuel 24: 14)

Chorus 2
Welcome back my innocence (Psalm 32: 1-2)
How I have so longed to see your face again (Psalm 51: 11-12)
Overwhelmed I say goodbye
As the pages turn I say goodbye
Passing by the end of my life (2 Corinthians 5: 17)

Pages turn, memories burning away
Ashes celebrate (Hebrews 12: 29)
You're washing me, consuming me (Revelation 1: 5)
As I'm falling on Your sword (Ephesians 6: 17)
You're washing me, branding me with grace (Galatians 6: 17; 2 Corinthians 12: 9)
Innocence reborn (John 3: 3; 1 Peter 1: 23)
