Lord, Save Me from Myself Lyrics

My mind is dull and faded
From these years of buy and sell
My eyes have seen the glory
Of this hollow modern shell

And sex is a grand production
But I'm bored with that as well
Ah, ah, Lord save me from myself

Electric sun keep shining
Ripen daughters of the chrome
This world is where I breathe
Let it never be called home

Where the vultures make the money
Is where our bodies fell
Ah, ah, Lord save me from myself

Where the vultures make the money
Yeah, I'm bored with that as well
Ah, ah, ah, Lord save me from myself

Introduction:

"Lord, Save Me from Myself" is a powerful and introspective song by Jon Foreman, the lead singer of the band Switchfoot. Released in 2008 as part of his solo project, this song delves deep into the struggles of the human condition and the need for divine intervention.

Verse 1: My mind is dull and faded
From these years of buy and sell
My eyes have seen the glory
Of this hollow modern shell

The song begins with a reflection on the emptiness and weariness that often accompanies the pursuit of worldly desires. The mention of a "hollow modern shell" suggests a sense of disillusionment and a longing for something more meaningful. It highlights the emptiness that can come from a life focused solely on material gain.

Verse 2: And sex is a grand production
But I'm bored with that as well
Ah, ah, Lord save me from myself

In this verse, Foreman touches on the fleeting nature of physical pleasure and how it fails to provide lasting satisfaction. He acknowledges his own boredom with the pursuit of sensual pleasure and expresses a desire for deliverance from his own self-destructive tendencies. The plea for salvation from oneself reflects a recognition of the need for divine intervention and transformation.
