Everything is Broken Preview: Angels

Everything is Broken, as an album, is a timeline that begins over a decade ago and leads up to the present.  One day it occurred to me that more than memories, I have hundreds of songs through which I could look back on my past beliefs and how they have changed.  While the songs on the album are not in chronological order, they each represent a moment in my spiritual journey.

Angels was written around 2008, and looks at an idea that continues to comes up in one way or another: the devil.  The concept was simple, but incredibly alluring:

What would the devil say were he given a podium
and asked to state his case?

Lyrics

Faith isn’t only for the reverent
Prodigals and saints will all be saved
You’ll see my footprints on your way up to heaven
Maybe wonder why they go the other way

Reaping what you sowed was once rewarding
Now the downside of redemption is living life by grace
If your sun forbore to shine tomorrow morning
How close would you be to the flames?

God has saved the chosen, I will seek the lost
When they’re locked away and broken we will be much better off
My children do not fear,
We didn’t turn our backs when they nailed him to the cross

I’ve walked the dusty trail of Eden
With the same two feet that stand before you now
I’ve touched the halos of every heathen
Learned the secrets of the saints and the horns beneath their crowns

The opiate of the masses if wearing weaker
It was only a placebo from the start
You agnostics and fellow believers
These chains can heal your broken hearts

Faith isn’t only for the reverent
Prodigals and saints will all be shamed
You’ll see my footprints on your way up to heaven
Maybe wonder why they go the other way
