lyrics

Despite our minds, despite our thoughts,
the tragedies the faithful wrought,
there's so much trust in faith's blindness,
yet so much fear can kill kindness.

Through faith in god and governance,
this government is not for hire,
unless the price you name is higher.

They'll sell us all for a place in heaven.

Please deliver me from heaven.

When I look up to heaven, all I see is a building storm loom between us and the lights. And when that lightning finally strikes, with fear and hate, we'll strike right back. Screaming wildly at the clouds, they fire blindly into crowds.

But a soldier gets a special place in heaven.

Please deliver them from heaven.
Please deliver them from heaven.

The cock crows 3, bells toll for thee
the words you repeat have been robbed of all meaning
deliver me
deliver me
deliver me
deliver me from the darkness of a mind made up.

How many kids will have to die to validate the sacrifice?
How deep must we go to dig ourselves from a hole?
A sacrifice of our freedom, a sacrifice for our freedom. They'll dig a hole down, down, down to heaven.

Or just fill it up with bodies.

Please deliver us from heaven.
Please deliver us from heaven.

Please deliver me from heaven.

Deliver me.
Deliver me.
Deliver me.
Deliver me from heaven.
