Album: The North Star

[Verse 1]
Will you light a lamp for me
Beside the golden door?
I fled through the Aegean sea
And I'm ever searching for your shore
Will you light a lamp for me
With fire from a distant star?
I run from bullets and machetes in
Congo and in Myanmar
Will you light a lamp for me?
My child is running through the sand
I'd never put her on this raft
Unless it's safer than the land
We swam the boarders undertow
In shivered boxcars, over cliff's edge
Looking for a place to go
We are the tempest-tossed in pilgrimage

[Chorus]
Give me shelter, Sanctuary
City on a hill standing still
Give me shelter from the fire fight
When tigers come at night, shine your light
Shine your light

[Verse 2]
Fabled majestic bride
She takes the exiled by her side
Imprisoned lightning in her eyes
And in her torch that lights the skies
Where are you oh selfless lady?
This barbed wire slows my retreat
I'm desperate - waiting for your bravery
And I've got this fire under my feet
My child's sold into slavery
Under the shadow of a drone
Oh, can you find a space for me
In your heart and in your home?
Let me breathe free
There's poison in the air
I'll get chlorine in my lungs if I stay here!
Give me stretched out arms in which to run
Give me refuge beneath the setting sun!

[Chorus]
Give me shelter, Sanctuary
City on a hill standing still
Give me shelter from the fire fight
When tigers come at night, shine your light

Give me shelter, Sanctuary
City on a hill standing still
Give me shelter from the fire fight
When tigers come at night, shine your light
Shine your light

[Verse 3: Propaganda]
I don't need the clean version
The family channel teen version
The version that assumed we was all virgins version
I need that deep into the soil
That dirty fingernails
I need the kind that knows
What's on your hard drive. El Shaddai
I need to find you in the brothel
Still unashamed to be your father
With the intent and understanding
That your pain and sin ain't past tense
That lives in the tension of
Woman, where are your accusers?
And I dare y'all to toss a stone but go your way and sin no more
That lion lamb - dove serpent
Don't just do right. Make it right
Restorative justice; ignoring accusers
We poured our love in
Never power abusers
There are breaches in your preaching
We can see it from the bleachers
When the storm comes in
I need to be able to trust these shingles
Us humbly mumbling, wholeheartedly holding on
A tremendous, a fortress
A witness, you get this?
Give me shelter
Give me home
Give me love
Give me you
And I wish I could reciprocate my fallen state
I just need Christ personified
Not commodified. The one that died
The brown eyed one that's acquainted with my suffering
A shelter - shelter

[Reprise]
Light a lamp for me by the golden door
Hold a torch for me on the sunset shore
Light a lamp for me by the golden door
Hold a torch for me on the sunset shore
Light a lamp for me by the golden door
Hold a torch for me on the sunset shore
Light a lamp for me by the golden door
Hold a torch for me on the sunset shore
