Deliver Me


When I think of heaven
Deliver me in a black-winged bird
I think of flying down into a sea of pens and feathers
And all the other instruments of faith and sex and God
In the belly of a black-winged bird

When I think of heaven
Deliver me in a black-winged bird
I think of dying, lay me down in a field of flame and heather
Render up my body into the burning heart of God
In the belly of a black-winged bird.

from Rain King
words and music by Adam Duritz
