I want to die… to myself!

Cut me up, throw me ‘round
Nail me to a cross.
To live is Christ, to die is gain.
To die is gain, to live is Christ.
Not my blood, not my breath
My flesh, my lust, my greed.

To die is gain, to live is Christ.
To die is gain, to live is Christ.

I’m a child of God,
But t’wasn’t always so
I had a father, the father of lies
Corrupting my desires,
Darkness filled my eyes.


Remnants of this old man still try to appear
Claiming to be mine
Take a hammer out and nail the coffin shut.
I want to die… (to myself)

Chorus (repeat)

(Phillipians 1:21, Romans 8:15, John 8:44)

    My InterpretationI love how these guys just 'say it like it is' with no thought of political correctness or even trying to soften a hard message.
    They're essentially saying that if they live, they want it to be completely for Christ. If they end up dying for their faith instead, then that's ok too because they will be in heaven with Christ.
    It comes across as extremely brutal but has a much simpler and 'not so brutal' message. Mostly just putting things in extreme perspective!
