Take Me to Church Songtext

Take Me to Church Songtext

My lover′s got humour
She's the giggle at a funeral
Knows everybody′s disapproval
They should've worshipped 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

My church offers no absolutes
She tells me, "Worship in the bedroom"
The only heaven I′ll be sent to
Is when I'm alone with you

I was born sick
But I love it
Command me to be well

A-a-a-a-a-a-a, 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
Oh 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
Oh 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?
We′ve 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 so you can sharpen your knife
Offer me my deathless death
Oh 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 so you can sharpen your knife
Offer me my deathless death
Oh 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

Oh, oh, 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
Oh 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
Oh good God, let me give you my life

ich hasse dieses lied T^T
Früher mochte ich es, aber seit ich herausgefunden habe dass es homophob ist mag ich es nicht mehr. Ich kann homophobie nicht ausstehen. Es ist nicht mal eine Phobie. Man hat keine Angst.
“I hate the word homophobia. It's not a phobia. You are not scared. You are an asshole.”

Bitte .. eignet euch doch alle mal ein wenig Englisch Kentnisse an..

Deathless´s Wortübersetzung steht für todlosen, allerdings hat es die korrekte Wortwahl in dem Zusammenhang das "sündiger" nicht in den Himmel kommen" und somit keine "Erfüllung" kriegen.
Was somit Deathless /Todlosen\ /Unerfüllten\ "Ewig u. andauernden" Tod zu einer eigentlich sehr Niveauvollen Aussage macht, die neben der Aussage selber auch einen Hintergrund hat.
Für Diverse Aussagen schämt man sich hier langsam.

Naja, wie soll ich es ausdrücken, so n beschissener scheinheiliger Text... und sowas läuft Tag ein Tag aus im Radio.
Zum kotzen!
