01. Casting Off

Even Heroes Need A Parachute
by This Beautiful Republic


Can you forget all the lies you’re told
Will you let go of all the things you hold
They can cost you more than you could know

But what will you do when everything’s gone?

I saw you under the stars
And I caught you wanting them all
Desire can change who you are
You’re so much better off
When nothing weighs you down

Breaking down, you’re starting to see
The world’s worth nothing when you were meant for me
So cast off those stars they only fall for me

Pre-chorus 2
I am still here when everything’s gone.

I’m here let me take your heart out, stay here I can make it better

(TBR/Allen Salmon)

Behind the Song:
"This song is from God’s perspective. It’s about letting go of the things that hold us down, things we return to time after time despite their complete emptiness. It speaks of looking back at those vices longingly, reminding the listener that such allure is deceitful, ultimately costing us everything in the end. God wants to take our burdens, heal us, and help us move on without them." - This Beautiful Republic
