THE THIN AIR – FOLLY

Hey all! This is a (poorly recorded) song I wrote about two weeks ago. It’s about the false pictures we’ve portrayed as Christians, and about the false definitions of Christianity we’ve shown the world through living a religion of legalism and acts rather than grace and mercy. I hope you like it – the lyrics are posted below the video.

Love is for lovers and men just the same

I’ll wait for your waiting and maybe I’l change

You show me your mercy I show you disdain

You seek recognition I long for the same

If patience is virtue and knowledge is gain

I’ll sit in my waiting and pray just the same

For this minute to hurry these blankets to fall

The inside to show me your knowledge of all

Chorus

I see your heart

It’s written on pages and given to all

I call for strength

Yet I deny the meaning I deny the fall

I deny the plan that is better than all

They say time to decide, I’ve shown you my soul

Is it heaven or hell is it sulfur or gold

This decision is bigger than riches or flames

Or good deeds or bad, it’s accepting His grace

Chorus

Your people are dirty Your people are stained

They look down believing their good deeds to save

Yet I can’t find those words in this book of it all

It simply says our deeds led to the fall

Chorus

Chorus 2

Please see my heart

Is it worthy of saving can grace cover all

Please take my pain

I’m dead to the world, alive to the grave

Please carry my burdens, please carry my shame

You fixed all my folly repaired all my shame

Put to death my subconscious gave life to my veins

I’m dead to the world, alive to the grave

Freed me from my burdens freed me from my shame
