Lyrical Spotlight: Kings Kaleidoscope – Felix Culpa

This is the official start of a series here at Simple Victory called Lyrical Spotlight. This series will let the lyrics of great artists preach. We might add some insight into how a song impacted us or why it’s important to us, but that’s it. We will let the lyrics speak on their own. We hope the lyrics speak to you as they have to us.

Kings Kaleidoscope is one of my favorite bands. They perform across multiple genres: Pop, Contemporary Christian, Praise and Worship, Rock, Hip Hop, etc. This track is more on the rock side, and wow, the lyrics are powerful. As we enter the build up to Resurrection Sunday, Christ’s saving grace and forgiveness is forefront on my mind. This song in particular was instrumental in Him reminding me of His grace and forgiveness after He put me and my family back together. His Grace Upon Grace Upon Grace. May we never forget we are saved ONLY by His gift of grace and His salvation… In Jesus name.

Felix Culpa‘ – Becoming Who We Are

Turn the lights on, look at what I have
See the twisted trophies of a dead man
Countless stories tell of sin and pain
But they sing the sweetness of my Savior’s grace

I’m a torn man, spirit fighting flesh
There’s a battle raging deep in my chest
And all that haunts me, all that leaves a stain
Only sings the sweetness of my Savior’s grace

A fortunate fall
My sins are stories of grace to recall
A fortunate fall
I glory in my sins forgiven

Jesus bought me, and now I am His
Dying with Him, in His death I now live
And all my vices, to which I was chained
Only speak the sweetness of my Savior’s grace

A fortunate fall
My sins are stories of grace to recall
A fortunate fall
I glory in my sins forgiven

And still I’m a wicked, wretched man
I do everything I hate
I am fighting to be God
I seethe and claw and thrash and shake
I have killed and stacked the dead
On a throne from which I reign
In the end I just want blood
And with His blood my hands are stained
See the God who reigns on high
He has opened His own veins
From His wounds a rushing torrent
That can wash it all away
Grace upon grace
Upon grace upon grace
Grace, oh!

Grace upon grace upon grace
Grace upon grace upon grace
