FF5 + Replace Me (song)

God, mold me into what You want me to beWhile drivin’ around today in my mobile stereo, I kept replaying a song by the Christian rapcore group Family Force 5 called “Replace Me.”  I kept singing/screaming the chorus that echoed what seminary formation feels like, so far … to be formed into what God wants … “crush me, tear me, break me, mold me, make me what You want me to be.”  — Here’s the lyrics:

My Batteries died sometime ago (wuh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh)
I gotta heart-shaped box where they must go (wuh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh)
Corrosion’s building everyday
My flesh is leading me astray that’s why I started to decay and I will slowly rot away but I can’t feel that anyway

This heart it wants to beat, These lungs they want to breathe
These eyes they want to see, Gotta mouth that wants to sing … 

Desperation, Needing You, Every last breath, I scream for You
Shatter me into a million pieces … Make me new
Crush me, tear me, break me, mold me, Make me what You want me to be
I am Yours for You to use, so take and replace me with You

Needing more than just a jump start to get me through
My disconnection is now the issue…..

(rap) I miss my First Love bad and its driving me mad
Just like a mixed up crazy person out of his head
Its been a long long time I’ve been on the decline
I do an a-bout face so I can be replaced, 180

This heart it wants to beat, These lungs they want to breathe
These eyes they wants to see, Gotta mouth that wants to sing

(des, des, des) [chorus]

One for the body, Two for the soul,
Three to get ready, Now go go go

Replace me with You!!!
(replace me with You!)

Desperation, Needing You, Every last breath, I scream…

[chorus]

— I also added the song (on YouTube) above, but BE WARNEDit’s pretty hardcore for all you John Michael Talbot fans 🙂
