OUR DELIVERENCE
Indigo Girls


now we can say

that nothings lost

and only change

brings round the prophecy

well now it's melting

the solid frost

was once a veil on greener landscapes

we would see

beneath my surface

the water's heating

and steam comes up and out the tears

you see me shine

for every strange and bitter moment

there was never a better time


for every pleasure

exacts its pain

how you hurt me

how you were good to me

beneath my window

a mournful train

that makes me smile

at my bad poetry

but beneath my surface

a song is rising

and it may be simple

well it hides its true intent

we may be looking for our deliverence

but it has already been sent


it's in the night fall

when the light falls

and what you've seen

isn't there anymore

it's in our blind trust

love will find us

just like it has before


they're sending soldiers

to distant places

x's and o's

on someones drawing board

like green and plastic

but with human faces

and they want to tell you

it's a merciful sword

but with all the blood

newly dried in the desert

can we not fertilize the land with something else

there is no nation

by god exempted

lay down your weapons

and love your neighbor as yourself


it's in the night fall

when the light falls

and what you've seen

isn't there anymore

it's through our blind trust

love will find us

just like it has before
