So Much For Substitutes
by downhere


Iliad, tragedy, miseries all subtracted
A chosen one, I'm a father's son
I'm the one You attracted Chorus
For this lame world
Where the blame grows
You died upon it to redeem it
I believe it, I receive it
So forever You'll inhabit me

You wouldn't walk out on this tragedy
Never give up on Your Iliad
You suffered for the victory
'Cause it's always been Your labor of love


When the story of love began
From the starting until the end
The hero wins
Come tomorrow no one knows
But when everything unfolds
The hero wins
For this lame world
Where the blame grows
You died upon it to redeem it


Written by Jason Germain / Marc Martel

Behind the Song:
Heb. 9:15
Based on the novel by Homer, I talk about the journey of exploring who God is and who we are. I haven't really read the story, so it feels like I'm kind of cheating with the title, but it's a story of human tragedy. In a way, humans have made the story of humanity a tragedy, but thankfully Jesus redeems and gives us the hope in the end that the hero wins. - Marc Martel (downhere)
