The Ballad Of St. Augustine


Horseshoes & Handgrenades



[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
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]

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