Take Me To Church Lyrics

Take Me To Church - Chris Kläfford

Written by:Andrew Hozier-Byrne

 

My lover's got humor

She's the giggle at a funeral

Everybody's disapproval

I should've worshiped her sooner

If the heavens ever did speak

 

She's the last true mouthpiece

Every Sunday's getting more bleak

A fresh poison each week

We were born sick you heard them say it

Command me to be well

 

Amen amen

 

Amen amen

 

Take me to church

I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies

I'll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife

Offer me that deathless death

Good god let me give you my life

 

If I'm a pagan of the good times

My lover's the sunlight

To keep the goddess on my side

She demands a sacrifice

Drain the whole sea

Get something shiny

Something meaty for the main course

That's a fine looking high horse

What you got in the stable

Got a lot of starving faithful

That looks tasty

That looks plenty

This is hungry work

Take me to church

I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies

I'll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife

Offer me that deathless death

Good god let me give you my life

 

Take me to church

I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies

I'll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife

Offer me that deathless death

Good god let me give you my life

 

No masters or kings

When the ritual begins

 

There is no sweeter innocence

Than our gentle sin

 

In the madness and soil

Of that sad earthly scene

 

Only then I am human

Only then I am clean

 

Amen amen

 

Amen

 

Take me to church

I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies

I'll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife

Offer me that deathless death

Good god let me give you my life

 

Take me to church

I'll worship like a dog at the shrine of your lies

I'll tell you my sins and you can sharpen your knife

Offer me that deathless death

Good god let me give you my life

 

Amen
