the ballad of st. augustine lyrics – disciple

“the ballad of st. augustine”

[verse 1]
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]

[verse 2]
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
p*ssing 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]

psalm 51:1-17; psalm 32:1-7
