"Burn Me Down" as written by Aaron James Babcock, Timothy Ryan Skipper, Collin Rigsby and Jared Keith Rigsby....
When I was young, I thought like a child
And so I reasoned by what I could see
Childishly, show me the truth

Is a kingdom just beyond reach
Or is it hidden where it's plain to see?
Draw the curtain: Revelation

Make clear to me
The mystery

There's a spirit fire growing inside me
Burn me down, burn me down
There's a holy fire growing inside me
Burn me down, burn me down
Let it out

Like a shadow, like the sea mist
I cannot grasp it, yet it exists
In the background: Eternity

Make clear to me
The mystery

There's a spirit fire growing inside me
Burn me down, burn me down
There's a holy fire growing inside me
Burn me down, burn me down
Let it out

What will we do with all the old made new?
What will we do with all the dead made young?
What will we do with all the false made true?
What will we do? What will be done?
What will we do?

Revelation
Eternity
Make clear to me
The mystery

There's a spirit fire growing inside me
Burn me down, burn me down
There's a holy fire growing inside me
Burn me down, burn me down
Let it out


We disappear
We burn down
A black wave
Carries us out
We disappear
We fade out
We're just blessed
And the sun is rising, now

    Song MeaningYes! First comment!

    This is a fabulous ending to a perfectly timed album (provided you received the original version. Not the one from Amazon or iTunes). It's basically a proclamation of the fire of Christ and the revelation of Truth. This idea is not something complex or puzzling in nature. Unfortunately, in our modern world, we fail to see the simplicity of what is being sung. Eternity, revelation, and the Kingdom are all at hand and are all available through the fire of Christ and his Spirit. Those mysterious wonders are made clear. Those ungraspable concepts are within reach. Those deep-centered doubts are made clean through childlike faith. Let the fire burn inside and do what the last lyrics say: let it out!!
