03. Slow Fade

The Altar and The Door
by Casting Crowns



 

Be careful little eyes what you see
Itís the second glance that ties your hands as darkness pulls the strings
Be careful little feet where you go
For itís the little feet behind you that are sure to follow

Itís a slow fade when you give yourself away
Itís a slow fade when black and white have turned to gray
Thoughts invade, choices are made, a price will be paid
When you give yourself away
People never crumble in a day
Itís a slow fade, itís a slow fade

Be careful little ears what you hear
When flattery leads to compromise, the end is always near
Be careful little lips what you say
For empty words and promises lead broken hearts astray

Itís a slow fade when you give yourself away
Itís a slow fade when black and white have turned to gray
Thoughts invade, choices are made, a price will be paid
When you give yourself away
People never crumble in a day

The journey from your mind to your hands
Is shorter than youíre thinking
Be careful if you think you stand
You just might be sinking

Itís a slow fade when you give yourself away
Itís a slow fade when black and white have turned to gray
Thoughts invade, choices are made, a price will be paid
When you give yourself away
People never crumble in a day
Daddies never crumble in a day
Families never crumble in a day

Oh be careful little eyes what see
Oh be careful little eyes what you see
For the Father up above is looking down in love
Oh be careful little eyes what you see

Behind the Song:
This song was inspired by the spreading cancer of moral failure in the fathers of this generation. As believers, we must guard our hearts and understand the no one crashes and burns. They just slowly fade away one little compromise at a time. ~Psalm 1 / 1 Corinthians 10:12-13 / James 4:7-10 / Proverbs 4:23-27 / 1 John 2:15-17 / James 1:12-15 / Isaiah 59:2 / Matthew 13:16-23 / 1 John 2:3-6, 15-17 / Romans 12:1-3 / 1 Corinthians 15:57-58

"ďSlow FadeĒ is essentially dealing with moral decay in fathers, but it applies to all believers. Inspired by friends, peers, couples falling a part, ministers losing their ministries, all because of moral failureÖ. This song is my way of trying to run out ahead of that, trying to say people donít crumble in a day. You donít fall, you fade. Itís a slow series of compromises that eventually take you where you thought youíd never go. The only way to avoid it is to develop your relationship with Jesus every day." - Mark Hall (Casting Crowns)
