The Ballad of St. Augustine
by Disciple

Album: 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

Bridge
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
