STOCKI SURMISES ON ANDY GRAY AND SEXISM
SONGS AS CATHARTIC COMPANIONS - Pause For Thought 1.2.11

Lyric For The Day 31.1.11 from Kingdom Of Comfort by Delirious?

Delirious 

“Save me save me
From the kingdom of comfort where I am king
From my unhealthy lust of material things”

From Kingdom Of Comfort by Delirious?

I always felt that Delirious? suffered from being caught up in the new worship movement, which reflected a wider society of self indulgence. Where the world over indulged in materialism the worship industry gave a question free, bless me bless me song diet bereft of the prophetic or cathartic. Then, as the band came to an end, Delirious? made their big statement and this was the lead off lyric. Just as you think that you are on comfortable Christian cliché the lyric knocks you down from underneath. This was the song that the Christian “industry” needed to hear. This is a much more “deny yourself and take up your cross” lyric. A most needed antidote to what was going on around them. Challenging!
