lyrics

I will not sleep through my own deliverance
I will not sleep through my own deliverance
and if I should die may it only be to ignorance
cuz I will not sleep through my own deliverance

if I should pass out may I wake up to my negligence
cuz i will not sleep through my own deliverance

When I was born I was pure-bred for foolishness
When I was young I was spoon-fed sheer fearfulness
and now that I'm grown I must stand up on my own
and i will not sleep through my own deliverance.

said when I could see, I could see only innocence
when I could feel, I could feel through to tenderness
and now that i'm blind, I screw it up all the time
but I will not sleep through my own deliverance

The Shiz is hellbent on putting meaning back in the mainstream, and they do so with a compelling transparency and with hearts thumping hard in their chests - Unexpectedly stirring, and a damned good time. ... more
