Song “Deteriorate” by artist Demon Hunter.

Artist: Demon Hunter
Song: Deteriorate

Lyircs:
Time has had its way with me
My broken, tired hands can’t build a thing
The wires that have held me still
Embedded now in flesh, define my will
The idle of my days has won
The empty I have fed has made me numb
Despite what you will find in me
The failures of my past still swell beneath

Pre-chorus:
I need a heart that carries on through the pain
When the walls start collapsing again
Give me a soul that never ceases to follow
Despite the infection within

Chorus:
Our careless feet leaving trails
Never minding the fragile dirt we all end in

This is where I find my fall
The cares that held me life don’t work at all
And every step away from here
Is closer to the plague I hold so dear

Awaiting my end
Breathing in the day that finds me new
Redemption begins
Bleeding out the flaws in place of you

(Chorus)
…………..
[Behind the Song, by Ryan Clark]
“Deteriorate” is more or less about getting old and feeling the effects of that. It’s about longing for an eternal body that will be flawless and will never wear out. When I sing “Awaiting my end, breathing in the day that finds me new,” I’m talking about looking forward to that day when our bodies will be replaced with Heavenly bodies.

In addition to this, it’s also just a reminder for listeners that life here on earth is not very long, and to live wisely while we’re here.

“For my loins are full of burning pain, and there is no health in my body.” – Psalms 38:7
