07. Breaking The Legs of Sheep

Apparitions Of Melody: The Dead Letters Edition
by Kids In The Way


I never meant to hurt you
I never thought my words could cut right through, leaving open wounds
In all this open space, I took myself into a place
I never should have gone, I never should have gone
Oh, the damage is done

Lay me down in fields of green
This heart has seen things I never should have seen
You’re breaking my legs and teaching me

I never saw my own pride
I never thought my lips could taste of lies, and kiss your crying eyes
And all the scars you’ve gained, from crimson covered hands
That held your face when they were strong, my hands used to be so strong
Oh, the damage they’ve done

I found my place among the seas, I found this grace upon my knees

Behind the Song:
"Well if you want to know the artist personally, this is the song that does it. I wrote this song during a very painful growing time in my spiritual life. I had kind of been cruising along for sometime, not really challenging myself or growing with the Lord and it started to become very apparent. I found myself dealing with a lot of my poor decisions and weaknesses. And it hurt very badly. During this time I remembered a lesson I had heard once over Psalm 23. In the few opening verses it talks about the Lord being our Shepard and how He leads us to still waters and makes us lie down in green pastures. We are the sheep, and He is our master, looking out for us. Protecting us. The teacher informed us that sheep are a very dumb animal, and will put themselves into danger without even knowing it. Even after being returned to the herd, they will wander back into the same danger they were just in. To keep them from doing so, sometimes the Shepard would have to break the sheep’s legs to “make them lie down” in the safety of the pasture. Recalling this lesson, I realized God was breaking my legs and telling me I needed to get on the ball and remember my call and duty to be a man of God." - Dave Pelsue (Kids In The Way)
