"Replace Me" as written by and Nathan Currin Joshua Olds....
My Batteries died sometime ago
Gotta heart shaped box where they must go
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 wants 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 your's for you to use
Oh, 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 1st 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

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 your's for you to use
Oh, take and replace me with you

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

Replace me with you

(Desperation
Needing you
Every last breath
I scream for you)

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 your's for you to use
Oh, take and replace me with you

    General Comment"Every last breath

    This is my favorite part of the whole song. I can't really just sit and hear this song. I have to move. It hits home because that is what i say most of the time and basically what the bible says about being like God. I am yours for u use. take me ,replace me with you. I think that the opening of the song is like saying you know, i am a sinner. a terrible person and i need your help. I have noticed when people become christians that most of the time they are like htis and crying. just completely desperate for help and giving it all to God. that is what i think it means. I saw them live and they are AWESOME!!! I had never heard of them before and now i listen to them as often as i can.

    General CommentI love this song, it's just what I need to hear/sing when I'm feeling down. Definitely one of their best, most God-focused songs that I've heard. I also prefer the more rockish influence in the music style.

    And yeah, it's pretty much about giving it all to God, and letting Him do what He wants with your life. It's also about how God is the answer to our problems, and that when your heart is feeling down (My Batteries died sometime ago/Gotta heart shaped box where they must go), God will fix it. Lastly, it says that God's will for our lives, and His impact/changes on our lives are all great things, and satisfy the hunger of our souls.

    Quite a deep song actually...

    General CommentThis song has a lot to do with God it says, "Crush me, tear me, break me, mold me
    Make me what you want me to be" meaning, "God change me into the person I am ment to be in your eyes." And the chorus also shows that they are desperate and need to be broken by God, so he can truly change them.

    General CommentI don't know how you can think this song isn't about God. Can someone give good examples to try and prove that point?

    General Commentmandolin, sry to point out....but you are wrong....this is a Christian song, and I think as a Christian writer, he dosn't want a girl to "tear him, break him, mold him, make him" he want's God to, and when he says
    do what you want me to be, I am yours for your to use, or take and replace me with you..." he means that he wnats God to take him and use him so yeah, that's my point...even though, it doesn't seem like it, FF5 are HxC Christians. just ask 'em like I did at one of their shows !)

    General CommentI believe its about wanting God to take over your life.

    'Shatter me into a million pieces' is saying He wants God to just take over his entire life (break it down and mold him and ETC) And for God change to change him into the person in Gods eyes.


    FF5 is a cross-over band, they're christian but they'll go to bars and places to minister. They play ALL OVER the Christian radio stations I listen to, if you have proof they're not Christian email me then.
