"Deliver Us" as written by Paul Burnette, John Henry, Kristopher Norris, Ryan Parrish and Michael Schleibaum....
This world is dying everyday
don't let it come between us
our fate has traveled this far
and now the storm brings us faster to a close
brimming with pathetic prose

vacate your stolen hearts
as if nobody's seen us
and empty out your pockets
you needn't bring
anything where we're going

and to think we created this monster
crawling in and walking out on us
to think that we craft our own disasters
falling in and falling out of hope

don't leave me, I need this
unleashed and unafraid, us castaways
calling out release us, propelling towards
insidious decay at an alarming rate

and to think we created this monster
crawling in and walking out on us
to think that we craft our own disasters
falling in and falling out of hope

don't leave me, give me release
don't sink down into defeat
only when you're through fleeing
can you save yourself deliver us

    General Commentme and my friend were argueing about this on msn shes convinced its a love song but i believed it to be about the world became decayed and escaping through god but she managed to convinve me that im wrong

    This world is dying everyday
    Don't let it come between us
    Our fate has traveled this far
    And now the storm brings us faster to a close
    Brimming with pathetic prose----
    it means: that the world is full of shit (no lie there) and they cant let it come between their love for each other, their destiny to bring them together has brought them that far. theirs something trying to tear them apart and it's almost doin just that

    paragraph 2:Vacate your stolen hearts
    As if nobody's seen us
    And empty out your pockets
    You needn't bring
    Anything where we're going
    stolen heart, meaning that they stole each others hearts and to make it seem that no one else noticed that (sort of like romeo and julliet)

    Paragraph 3:And to think we created this monster
    Crawling in and walking out on us
    To think that we craft our own disasters
    Falling in and falling out of hope
    The monster being their love for each other cus its just consuming them, that it brings them together but tears them apart, that its their fault for what happend, for them falling in love, that they fall for each other, but fall out of love at the same time
    she's attempting to leave him 

    paragraph 4 don't leave me, I need this
    Unleashed and unafraid, us castaways
    Calling out release us, propelling towards
    Insidious decay at an alarming rate

    Joe doesn't want Sally to leave him, he can;t be without her, he needs her love and to love her, that is dying really fast, hes dying inside without her
    without... her love

    paragraph 6: Don't leave me, give me release
    Don't sink down into defeat
    Only when you're through fleeing
    Can you save yourself deliver us

    Joe can't be without her, he needs her to love him to free his love for her, He doesn't want her to leave, he doesnt want her to give up on their love, 
    only when she belives in herself, and their love can their love be free.

    LMAO maybes shes a little off

    General Commentno comments?
    feels like an invocation (though a strange place for one at the end of an album and a classical muse reference is unlikely)
    most of this song is straight forward save one simple question - come between whom? answer this and you may be able to discern the other rampant pronouns.

    General Comment"come between whom?"

    I think that he is saying to not let the troubles of the world come between him and the person he is singing to.

    General CommentI'm pretty sure the chorus is wrong. It's "Falling in and falling out of love." You can hear the "v" sound before the next line starts.

    Other than that, I agree with wiggin and samwalton. It's most likely about how the "you" in the song walked out on the "me" because of troubles. The "me" is singing about it, saying that the "you" should not have let those troubles come between them. "me" says "Don't leave me, I need this," revealing he (?) still wants her (?).
