Silent Planet – Dying In Circles Lyrics

[Verse 1: Garrett Russell]
Beside the shadow of a frozen chapel
Under the marriage of the cross and crown [1]
Outside the privilege of the “chosen ones”
The Image of God [2] is sleeping on the ground
Spires pierce the sky like steel through your hands [3]
Planks from our eyes [4] plunged in your side
Water poured out, [5] but we want wine
You said, “Take and remember” [6], but we always forget

[Chorus: Garrett Russell & Thomas Freckleton]
To the outcast sons, [7] to the sojourners, descendants of loss
I’ll hold my breath until you can breathe
To truly live, I must begin anew and be consumed [8]
Make a heart of flesh from these hollow stones

I’m learning what it means to trade my certainty for awe

[Verse 2: Garrett Russell]
When you fell to your knees to wash my feet
Did you see the trampled shadows stained underneath? [9]
Did you hear the acrimony
Perpetuated by the puppet sewn to the pulpit? [10]
We forgot your life and became a people of death
Spell-bound by the celibate spectacle, inhabiting mausoleums [11]

[Bridge: Garrett Russell]
We are the eulogy at the funeral of God [12]

[Chorus: Garrett Russell]
To the outcast sons, to the sojourners [13], descendants of loss
Be consumed
I’ll hold my breath
To truly live, we must begin anew
Trade your certainty for awe
