Moment Of Surrender Lyrics

I tied myself with wire
To let the horses roam free
Playing with the fire
Until the fire played with me

The stone was semi-precious
We were barely conscious
Two souls too smart to be
In the realm of certainty
Even on our wedding day

We set ourselves on fire
Oh God, do not deny her
It’s not if I believe in love
If love believes in me
Oh, believe in me

At the moment of surrender
I folded to my knees
I did not notice the passers-by
And they did not notice me

I’ve been in every black hole
At the altar of the dark star
My body’s now a begging bowl
That’s begging to get back, begging to get back
To my heart
To the rhythm of my soul
To the rhythm of my unconsciousness
To the rhythm that yearns
To be released from control

I was punching in the numbers at the ATM machine
I could see in the reflection
A face staring back at me
At the moment of surrender
Of vision over visibility
I did not notice the passers-by
And they did not notice me

I was speeding on the subway
Through the stations of the cross
Every eye looking every other way
Counting down ’til the pain would stop

At the moment of surrender
Of vision over visibility
I did not notice the passers-by
And they did not notice me

This song always reminds me of when I was riding to the seattle train staition. Outside it was dark & rainy & gave me an atmosphere from the dim lights in the city. & the sound of the rain & the train

Letting go of the ties that bind us to civility and comfort in order to revert to our original place in time and space where it all will finally make sense.

I was punching in the numbers at the ATM machine - means, we have voluntarily reduced the value of our daily existence down to a sequence of 4 digits - perhaps our date of birth, or date of death?

I think this song simply means their comes a time when you forget all your pride in times of trouble all you need do is to kneel down and pray to God.

To me the song tells of someone that wanted love but there was nothing to grasp, all he had was his dreams.No one saw his torment or cared. He took his own life. It's in the 1st 4 lines of the song.

This poem was composed by a fourth grader, Bono sued for the copyrights, the Family now live in a trailer down by the river.

I would say that this song is about a person's belief in God, how one comes to the conclusion that we are broken and in desperate need of grace. Great song to inspire thoughts and feelings.

Punching in the numbers, means he was entering his personal identification number (PIN), and then as you read on to the next section he sees his reflection in the ATM machine staring back at him.
