Five Iron Frenzy – The Cross Of St. Andrew lyrics

One missed step can make you stumble
You set yourself up for a fall
You punish yourself for each failure,
Dogma beat out alcohol
When all of your principles were fashioned
You thought your new rules made you new
But maybe those X's on your hands are what's killing you

Chorus:
The Cross of Saint Andrew
Never meant to take His place
The Cross of Saint Andrew
Echoes of His grace

When Saint Andrew knew the measure
He knew the cost of sacrifice
He left all that he knew behind him
Great things come at such great price
But all of this never brought the answers
Obedience comes with controversy
What changed him changes me today
Christ has mercy

Chorus:
The Cross of Saint Andrew
Never meant to take His place
The Cross of Saint Andrew
Echoes of His grace

All your sins can be forgiven
All of this was always free
Jesus loves without condition
This is what freedom means to me

Nihil ergo nunc damnationis
Est his qui sunt in Christo Iesu
Qui non secundum carnem ambulant
(There is therefore now no condemnation
To them which are in Christ Jesus,
Who walk not after the flesh,
But after the Spirit)
-Romans 8: 1, 2
