Playlist Reboot Day 2: Slow Fade

Posted on 13th April 2012 in Uncategorized

A few months ago I went to a “Casting Crowns” concert at church. I love how far Christian music as a whole has moved over the years. I’ve heard more than one person recently mention, “God Rock” like it was something terrible…or at least, that is the way I interpreted it. Well, here is how I interpret my “God Rock.” If I believe in a God, why shouldn’t I want to listen to music that talks about Him? And shouldn’t people want to write music about Him? What else SHOULD I sing about? I don’t know…

…it just seems like a serious slam. I listen to all kinds of music, not just Christian. And Christian music, at least the variety I listen to, is far more than just hymns and praise songs (which I feel are very important, so don’t get me wrong). Casting Crowns is a band that dares to talk about alot of issues and not just give “cotton candy” answers to them. And to top it all off, with what is going on at work with the one student, the lyrics to this one particular song seem to be highly appropo. “People never crumble in a day…it’s a slow fade.” Whatever is going on in his life, that is causing so much heartache and grief that I see via his behaviors, didn’t happen in just a mere day.

And it never does with anyone. It truly is a “Slow Fade.”

From Slow Fade  by Casting Crowns:

Be careful little eyes what you see
It’s the second glance that ties your hands as darkness pulls the strings
Be careful little feet where you go
For it’s the little feet behind you that are sure to follow

It’s a slow fade when you give yourself away
It’s a slow fade when black and white have turned to gray
Thoughts invade, choices are made, a price will be paid
When you give yourself away
People never crumble in a day
It’s a slow fade, it’s a slow fade
