The Wallflowers - I've Been Delivered Lyrics




Send I've Been Delivered Ringtone to your Cell

Well, I could break free from the
Wood of a coffin if I need
But nothin's hard as gettin' free from places
I've already been

I've been waste-deep
In the burnin' meadows of my mind
In the engine in cold December
Shootin' fire from the hose

Now turn off your lights
'Cause I'm not comin' home
'Til I'm delivered for the first time

I was first-born to a parade
That follows in rows
Down a narrow cold black river
Faceless shadows movin' slow

I would move swift when
The sounds of a trumpet would blow
I've been the puppet, I've been the strings
I know the vacant face it brings

Now the bells of curfew
They may ring before I'm through
But soon I'll be delivered for the first time

You might keep clean
In the back of an angel motorcade
It doesn't matter who walks in
You know, the joke is still the same

You'll just wake up
Like a disposable lover, decomposed
I've been gone, I've been remembered
I've been alive, I've been a ghost

So now, if downtown explodes
I'll still be on this road
'Til I'm delivered for the first time

I have drawn blood from the neckline
When vampires were in fashion
You know I'd even learn to cut my throat
If I thought I could fit in

'Cause I, I once heard that you gotta learn
How to blend in to this mess
Where nothin's hard, nothin's precious
And nothin's smooth or flawless

Now, no more amused
Just screaming to be delivered
For the first time

Now I'm 10 miles in the deep
And mighty blue sea
Looking back, towards a long white beach
Burnin' up into yellow flames

And I just wave back
Like a little boy up on a pony in a show
'Cause I can't fix something this complex
Any more than I can build a rose

So just keep on letting go
'Cause I must be close
To being delivered for the first time

Now I'd rather bleed out a long stream from being
Lonely and feel blessed
Well than drown, laying face down
In a puddle of respect

I was once lost
In the corridors of the arena in blindfolds
I've been the bull, I've been the whip
I just pulled down the matador

So now, turn on your lights
'Cause I'm comin' home
I've been delivered for the first time
