Welcome the newest member of the Come & Live family.  Modern worship artist Civil Parish joined up with Come & Live in July to offer Abolition’s Well as a gift to us all.  Depp lrycism, coupled with highly emotive, soaring melodies send us deep into our worship.  They remind us Come & Live’s Ascend The Hill or The City Harmonic with some Further Seems Forever melodies.

As Come & Live says about Civil Parish:

Civil Parish was formed out of a desire to see both the chains of legalism and licentiousness shattered in light of the Gospel. They sing and preach about Jesus being the only hope that this world and themselves have to experience healing. Their album Abolition’s Well came out as a belief that through the Gospel we will thirst no more, finding freedom in Christ. All of their live shows and worship sets are flooded with scripture and truths being spoken over people. That’s the heart of Civil Parish, a few guys who have been shown their brokenness and want to go rejoice with other broken people because we have a loving father.”

Essential Songs: Wearing Thin by Further Seems Forever

Essential Christian Songs: Wearing Thin by Further Seems Forever

Wearing Thin by Further Seems Forever Further Seems Forever - The Moon Is Down - Wearing Thin

Along with Sunny Day Real Estate, Christian music artists Further Seems Forever are the best emo band to ever work in the genre. Their heavy, swaying music combined with deeply emotive vocals perfected the sound created by Sunny Day Real Estate. “Wearing Thin” features the lyrics and vocals of original Further Seems Forever singer Chris Carrabba. The video features their most exciting vocalist, Jason Gleason, who stepped in when Chris Carrabba jumped into emo superstardom by creating Dashboard Confessional. “Wearing Thin” speaks to our security, even when we are our own prodigal.

Wearing Thin
Chris Carrabba

This is the last time I’ll try to reach you
and my guess is, you’ll just ignore it, just ignore me
Without a passing glance
without the slightest sigh
without moving your hands
without the softest cry.

If I’d say
go your own way, I’ll be with you
make mistakes and I’ll forgive you
home is waiting here for you when you return.

Rain reveals the foundation
and this one’s wearing thin
and shifting in the sand.

And the water does its damage
with its endless beating pulse
heralding the end

Without a passing glance
without the slightest sigh
without moving your hands
without the softest cry

If I’d say
go your own way, I’ll be with you
make mistakes and I’ll forgive you
home is waiting here for you when you return

This is the last time I will try to reach you
and my guess is that you’ll just ignore it, just ignore me.

Go your own way, I’ll be with you
make mistakes and I’ll forgive you
home is waiting here for you when you return
