lyrics

Blessed is the soul who with humility goes
To the holy of holies to say
I lay my defenses at the feet of the Lord
My desires, my comfort are slain
Blessed is the soul who with no weapon to hold
Where the militarized deal out the fear
Who broken but standing takes no violent commanding
But calls out for combatants to hear

I wanna go down
Feel the depth of the sound
That is the heart of the Lord
I wanna go down

Blessed is the land, all the blood-battered sand
On the fields where we fight and we die
And the blessed are the beasts, the creation that feasts
And returns us to dust by and by
Blessed and broke, all enchanted in smoke
Are the choked who all barely can breathe
In the shadow of towers, in the grip of their power
Call aloud to the Lord for relief

I wanna go down
Feel the depth of the sound
That is the heart of the Lord
I wanna go down

Blessed are the women of whom sin is forgiven
And blessed are the men who're made well
And blessed are the wretched, the wrecked and rejected
Who've been told that they're destined for hell
Who say: damn your damnation and your predestination
All your holy condescending ideas
Because God is still calling even though I am falling
And by his grace one day I will hear

I wanna go down
Feel the depth of the sound
That is the heart of the Lord
I wanna go down

Descend to ending: submission
Not to power of man: chakra explosion
I wanna go down

I wanna go down
Feel the depth of the sound
That is the heart of the Lord
I wanna go down
