Kingdom of Comfort

I have really been enjoying the recent Delirious? release, "Kingdom of Comfort". Maybe enjoying is not quite the right word. Perhaps it would be more accurate to say that I have been convicted by their latest project, particularly by the title track, "Kingdom of Comfort"


"Save me, save me from the kingdom of comfort where I am king from my unhealthy lust of material things


I rob myself of innocence with the poison of indifference

I buy my stuff at any cost a couple of clicks and I pay the price cuz what I gain is someone else's loss

Save me, save me from the kingdom of comfort where I am king from my unhealthy lust of material things."


I wrote a while back of the disease of Affluenza that we in America tend to suffer from. Myself included. Read it here.

Just last night I found myself angry that I had inadvertently let my government issued TV Converter Box coupons expire. I missed the fact that they expire after 90 days. It was an $80 mistake. I was mad. I am ashamed! How could I possibly be mad about something like that when there is a Global Food Crisis taking place, that is right now plunging an additional 100 million people on every continent into hunger.

Save me, save me from the kingdom of comfort where I am king!

Hear the song here...

solid release from delirious? - I haven't given it quite the listening time as some others I have stumbled upon... but I definitely caught the message of the title track.

Reminded me a bit of the theme from that old school tune from that band too few have heard - The Lust, The Flesh, The Eyes and The Pride of Life by The 77's.
