Song of the Day: Fit For A King - Skin And Bones

By in Articles, Lyric Videos | 1 Comment

Bam-this is hands down one of my fave songs of all time from a band that hails from the same town as another great (softer) band Eisley. This ballad just has some type of energy with its musical prowess & soaring vocals & provocative lyrics that makes me contemplate my life & relationship with YHWH. FFAK also still keeps releasing more music it seems like very year & vocalist Ryan has recently joined forces with Chris Wiseman from Currents on the metalcore project Our Eternity (see my review on that January 27, 2021). Check out the lyrics below.

Forgive me now for I have sold my soul for gold
Washed up on shore a thousand miles away from home
Just as I began to settle into these skin and bones alone
I find the answers to questions I have never known
Is there life beyond the grave
And will I make the same mistakes day after day
There must be a better way
Running from time to try to keep myself alive
Release my pride to keep from pushing the light aside
Now as I began to let this in I must keep the best in mind
And remove myself from the things that are wasting my time
I know that one of these days I’ll finally see you
Face to face at the golden gates
Will you take me or will I fade into the grave
I know these words won’t hold any weight
But please don’t turn away
Don’t turn away from me
Is there life beyond the grave
And will I make the same mistakes day after day
There must be a better way
I know that one of these days I’ll finally see you
Face to face at the golden gates
Will you take me or will I fade into the grave
Is there life beyond the grave
And will I make the same mistakes day after day
There must be a better way
I know that one of these days I’ll finally see you
Face to face at the golden gates
Will you take me or will I fade into the grave
Forgive me now for I have sold my soul for gold
Washed up on shore a thousand miles away from home
Just as I began to settle into these skin and bones alone
I find the answers to questions I have never known
