The Ballad of St. Augustine
by Disciple

Album: Horseshoes & Handgrenades
by Disciple

[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
