Facedown Records indie rock band Weathered’s first & latest single Quick Tempered from their upcoming album lyrical content is simply some of the most profound lyrics that I’ve seen in a while. They seem to align with my favorite Bible verse that I have tattooed on my arm. 2 Corinthians 10:5 says Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.
Here are the lyrics up until the bridge.
I tried going a whole day without taking Your name in vain cause someone told me it means so much more than some quick tempered phrase. Do I even want to know my worst offense only discoverable looking through your lens? A quick tempered man does a foolish thing, but what do You say about the man who sings about his past like he won’t go back? If feels like a lawyers touch to make my case against the judge to get away with everything I’ve done and end up above? Will You give me the strength to fight myself every step of the way? Will you show me the length of my evil days?
Pickup their new album Everything All At Once set to be released next week. Their latest single In This World was released this past Friday.
