Deliverance Lyrics

Submitted by level Besi Karat
1. Heaven's Not Overflowing (5:02)
I have been hunting on the I-10 with Jesus and a liar
And watched an ancient man use a gun to retire
and seen the wall fall down and crush the old
So now everybody’s hungry but they’d rather be cold

Let it go, let it go, let it go
Before we lose it all,
in time what’s deserved always gets served

Cause we stick therefore we can
Cause we stick therefore we can
Cause we stick therefore we can, break down end time
Hey fool haven’t you heard heaven’s not overflowing

And I been to a séance for the Ku Klux Klan,
I’ve seen a brother kill another with his own bare hands
I’ve seen your rising son fall in your mama's eye
And now the cops got a medal but he calls it a prize.

Let it go let it go let it geaux
Before we lose it all in time
what’s deserved always gets served

Cause we stick therefore we can
Cause we stick therefore we can
Cause we stick therefore we can break down end time
Hey fool haven’t you heard heaven’s not overflowing
Heaven's not overflowing


You know the rules only apply on the witness stand
& that you never get in trouble if you stick with your plan
That’s why I’m livin’ for the day like a necromancer
Cause when you go you're gone take the pain backstabber.

Stick me & let it go, let it go, let it go
Before we lose it all,
in time what’s deserved always gets served
2. Albatross (5:20)
Left behind what a waste of time
They’re coming to get you, run on
How can I respect your crime
They bought and sold you, run on run on.

You can call me crazy
You can call me wrong
Cause I was born a liar, albatross
Fly on

My home is kind man it pays to be blind
I promise to forget you run on
No swallowed pride no conspiracy lined
Broken promise of virtue run on.

You can call me lazy
But I know where I belong
Cause I was born a liar, albatross
Fly on with your trust in love
From your god above…

I believe the albatross is me

I should have seen the signs
Now the memory’s far behind
It was no big loss, fly on albatross
Yeaahh.
3. Clean My Wounds (3:32)
I see the world thru blood shot eyes
Streets filled with blood from distant lies.
The dogs of war never compromise,
No time for rearranging

"Help me Jesus, help me clean my wounds"
He said he cannot heal that kind
Bleeding soul becomes a bitter mind
He said it happens every time...

Knock it down
That’s how the story goes
In the land of a 1000 no’s
I’m all over you
In time my mind is changing.

Black on black gives me a heart attack
And the silence makes it deadly
Some choose to kill with a simple will
I’ve seen them fall fast and steady

Help me Jesus help me clean my wounds
He said he cannot heal that kind
Buck shot through the dome makes a big
Fucking mess,
He said it happens every time...

Knock it down
That’s how the story goes
In the land of a 1000 no’s
I’m all over you
In time my mind is changing.


Twist of fate wont give me a break,
& myself I’m slow and tired
I’ve got to rise with these blood shot eyes
But I keep falling when I’m higher...

"Help me Jesus, help me clean my wounds"
He said he cannot heal that kind
Bleeding soul becomes a bitter mind
He said it happens every time...

Knock it down
That’s how the story goes
In the land of a 1000 no’s
We are bleeding sins but our
Sins are always fading.

Knock it down
Knock it down
4. Without Wings (1:54)
5. Broken Man (4:54)
Deep in the soul of a man who’s seen it all -
he stands alone with borrowed time
Standing with two nothing’s new but they look at you
with broken backs and bleeding minds
And tell you they know even though you fall behind
You’ll be the one who walks the line-standing tall -
They’re so fragile, but they always find you when you hide...

Cause you're a broken man in a broken land
Cause you're a broken man in a broken land
And don’t they wish they were blessed like you.

The struggle inside of your mind is a waste of time -
purest thoughts evaporate
Dark clouds reveal how you feel in your idle time -
your own tail becomes the bait
You don’t even know even though your blood flows,
Destroy yourself, you're the one you hate - standing tall -
They’re so fragile, but they always catch you when you're late...

Cause you're a broken man in a broken land,
Cause you're a broken man in a broken land
And don’t they wish they were blessed like you.


Standing tall they look so small with your world upon their shoulders,
But a broken man on broken land looks far beyond his brothers...


Break for the sun you're the one, you're the chosen one,
your time is up your time is due
Cracked like a whip from the hand of a broken man
to find out that he’s just like you
But you've seen it all in your mind, you’ve seen it all
you built it up & they made it fall
Because you're killing yourself - and you're so fragile,
but they cannot crush you if you don’t crawl..

Now I’m a broken man in a broken land
Now I’m a broken man in a broken land...

And don’t they wish they were blessed like you
And don’t they wish they were blessed like you
And don’t they wish they were blessed like you
And don't they wish they were blessed like you
And don’t they wish they were blessed like you
Don’t they wish they were blessed like you...
6. Señor Limpio (3:53)
Sleeping on the wing
Busted flat and dusted boy your mind’s a terrible thing
Said the man with a dirty hand who claimed that he was king
Choking angels from inside trying to make them sing
Cause you're short of breath and close to death from sleeping on the wing

Dirty king, dirty king now you're strapped in for the ride-
it's so hard to be a fighter when your hands are always tied.

Mr. Innocent blood says he kills but just for love
Too bad the good ones always have to take the blame
"hey" sharp tongue liar making pay in a bed of fire
Too bad your dreams are always made of losing games

Dirty king dirty king now you're strapped in for the ride,
it's so hard to be a fighter when your hands are always tied.

But I want to I want to I want to but my hands were always tied up
But I want to I want to I want to but my hands were always tied
And I wish I had myself a dime for every time I cursed your
Goddamn name...
Mister Clean


Sweatin’ on the line doin’ 40 wasting time
Ain’t it funny how dat money rots your brain
Put your soul on trial cause you lost it all to a tiny vial
Look in the mirror when you tell me who’s insane

Dirty king dirty king now you're strapped in for the ride,
it's so hard to be a fighter when your hands are always tied.

But I want to but my hands are always tied up
But I want to I want to I want to but my hands were always tied up
But I wish I had myself a dime for every time I cursed your
Goddamn name..
Mister Clean
7. Mano de Mono (1:35)
8. Seven Days (4:56)
Over time mistakes were few but I believe they’re mine
Faded mind youth was old and the years were so unkind
I’m the one I face the change I know that stands before me
Believe in me cause I damn sure don’t believe in you

I cannot deny myself my anger and my pride
I cannot deny another lie
Waiting to find another spike right through my hand
Hope I’m killed before I die

Worlds divide, long ago the memory's still inside
Chances shine seven days our fears become entwined
Seasons change our time is gone our souls have
Grown much colder
Believe in me cause I dam sure don’t believe in you

Never again are words that echo in my mind
Leaving still holds back the tide
Crucified with lies my blood turns into wine
Take a sip before I die

I cannot deny myself my anger and my pride
I cannot deny another lie
Waiting to find another spike right through my hand
Hope I’m killed before I die

Before I die
Before I...

10. My Grain (3:19)
Grace, pride, tell me what’s your name?
Crippled will with tomorrow’s pill
And I feel no pain but I can’t remember
Whose to blame...

This is not my home
This is not my home
But the source was always known

My grain
I beg, you steal, do you show me your signs of a sin
Blistered and torn by the pure & reborn
But they are just like us and remember
Man, they cave in...

This is not my home
This is not my home
But the source was always known

Migrane
(Wicked goddam bass licks)

This is not my home
This is not my home
But the source was always known

Migrane

War stone, do you write your name in trust?
Word to the wise my instincts rise
All your heroes are gone and the proud ones have turned to dust,..
Seven dust...
You can kill my pride but my head's still
Flying!

My grain
My grain
My grain
Migrane
11. Deliverance (4:23)
Is there no one to deliver you from your ignorance?
Maybe you''ll look and see there’ll be no deliverance.
Turn to vulture parasites who pray on lost souls
Suck the blood of hapless fools who give them control!

No deliverance
Pick your own deliverance
No deliverance

Sad domination by those who say more than you''ll ever know
Take you to the depths of dogma hollow
It''s them you follow..

No deliverance!

Irredemption pure deception won''t see what''s if or true
Shutter your world and you won't be shut out
The devastating truth
Denial on ontrial like a jumbo cap
Vile brother are you through??

No deliverance
Pick your own deliverance
No deliverance

Sad domination by those who say more than you''ll ever know
To the depths of dogma, hollow
It's them you follow

Bleeding inside breathing with pride
They tow the line
We feed the crime with borrowed time select and find
No longer will they know
We amputate the shown...
12. Shake Like You (4:19)
Beginning of this world swelled with mankind
Who built a tool to kill a fool and lead the blind
Invent a rule to keep you down & call it sin
Then stand behind the wall and watch the games begin

Separate by class but keep the middle low
Instill the order with a border just for show
Give them weapons and let them have their piece of mind
Then tip them off so they can kill what’s not their kind

& watch them shake like you

If tales come true when judgement’s due they'll call us all liars
And put us in their hell and set our souls on fire
Remember sin your only friend he brought you through
Hallucinate with hate and watch them shake like you..
13. Shelter (3:25)
Once in awhile you''d be better listening to the fools for a change
I can see it in your eyes, it''s the one who''s not like you, you despise
I''m no different than you, it''s just that I do whatever I want to
that''s what sets us apart, I was free from the start, now you''re leaving
tell me whose heart is bleeding
so once in awhile you''d be better listening to the fools for a change
What comes around follows and the truth becomes harder to swallow
so bang bang they shoot you down, no one says a word as your body hits the ground
oh pick her up and put her down the crowd screams aloud she''s not breathing
and the only hand that reaches is the one alone you''ve been cheating my friend
tell me whose heart is bleeding again
so once in awhile you''d be better listening to the fools for a change
once in awhile you''d be better listening to the fools for a change
14. Pearls Before Swine (6:45)
Father forgive me
Mother forsake me
I think they’ve all become too strong

Brother believe me
Silence is deadly
And it's giving me the strength to carry on

Time has come, now I’m blind, deaf & numb
You're killing me, you're killing me
When I look into your eyes I can see
it's the world that you despise
And you're giving me the strength to carry on
Forgive me...

Look for the devils in their eyes,
Laughing, the blood has long been dried.
To hide in your disguise, it goes on & on & on...
Wallow, pearls before swine!

If the liar deceives you
Then the sin will appear true
Even if it leads me to the end

Killer accuse me
The devil breathes easy
- give in me the strength to carry on

Time has come, now I’m blind, deaf & numb
You're killing me you're killing me
When I look into your eyes I can see
it's the world that you despise
And your giving me the strength to carry on

Look for the devils in their eyes,
Laughing the blood has long been dried
To hide in your disguise, it goes on & on & on
Wallow......pearls before swine


Now you’ve blown away the sun
Darkened eyes & bitten tongue
Now you’ve blown away the son.
