04. The Ballad of St. Augustine

Horseshoes and Handgrenades
by Disciple


The air is leaving here
Itís getting hard to breathe, Iím 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)
Iím 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 wonít leave without it (Genesis 32:26)

Involuntary fast
The bread that never lasts, Iím starving (Matthew 4:4)

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

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

My death is imminent
Iíd 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)
Youíre washing me, consuming me (Revelation 1:5)
As Iím falling on Your sword (Ephesians 6:17)
Youíre washing me, branding me with grace (Galatians 6:17; 2 Corinthians 12:9)
Innocence reborn (John 3:3; 1 Peter 1:23)

Psalm 51:1-17; Psalm 32:1-7 / Words by Kevin Young / Music by Kevin Young, Micah Sannan, Andrew Welch, & Israel Beachy
