Deliver Me

Intro
The sun is leaning on the darkness again and we sing, “Oh, deliver me”

Verse 1
I saw images of God reflected out upon the deep
By prehistoric stars through millennia of grief
Spiritless and haunted like some ex-carnate beast
Still I feel the ancient lights of Heaven pressing down on me

Pre-Chorus
When the day changes at midnight
But you don’t know it until the morning light
And the footsteps of the midwife
Are already in motion, and in motion we sing

Chorus
Oh, deliver me
Oh, deliver me, yeah
The sun is leaning on the darkness again and we sing, “Oh, deliver me”

Verse 2
We traded souls on the shoals of Babylon
When they brought yours down to the floor, man, I was sure that mine was gone
But everything inside of me wanted somewhere to belong
But something deep inside my body screamed that all of this was wrong

Pre-Chorus
And the day changes at midnight
Still you don’t know it until the morning light
And the footsteps of the midwife
Are already in motion, and in motion we sing

Chorus
Oh, deliver me
Oh, deliver me
Oh, deliver me
Oh, deliver me

Bridge
All my feelings are up on the ceiling
All my grieving, all my believing
All my feelings are up on the ceiling
All my feelings are up on the ceiling
All my feelings are up on the ceiling
All my grieving, all my believing
All my feelings are up on the ceiling
All my feelings are up on the ceiling

Chorus
The sun is leaning on the darkness again and we sing, “Oh, deliver me”

Verse 3
Every human creature is a galaxy of thought
You could spend your life on one and it wouldn’t be for nought
Do you look at many people, but you see so very few?
From the disenchanted distance, it’s what desperate people do, yeah

Bridge
Oh, deliver me
Oh, deliver me
All my feelings are up on the ceiling
All my grieving, all my believing
All my feelings are up on the ceiling
All my feelings are up on the ceiling

Pre-Chorus
(All my feelings are up on the ceiling)
And the day changes at midnight
(All my grieving, all my believing)
Still you don’t know it for another six hours
(All my feelings are up on the ceiling)
(All my feelings are up on the ceiling)
And the footsteps of the midwife
(All my grieving, all my believing)
Are already in motion, and in motion we sing
(All my feelings are up on the ceiling)
(All my feelings are up on the ceiling)

Chorus
Oh, deliver me
Oh, deliver me, yeah
The sun is leaning on the darkness again and we sing, “Oh, deliver me”
