lifeblood: songs: background: our deliverance

emily saliers quote from 2002-02-22: indigo girls get fresh on back-to-basics cd, the boston globe:

the message of "our deliverance" is heard in the line "lay down your weapon, and love your neighbor as thyself."

"i couldn't say it any more poetically," saliers says. "i had to say it straight out. people always reference god when they're fighting wars, that god is on their side and all that stuff. but according to everything i've read, life is all about not warring with your neighbor, and no nation is exempt from that rule. i just wanted to remind myself and others about that."
