ed. note: All the words, from both songs, used once. Lyrics mixed to turn two songs into one. ps. I took artistic liberty and didnt follow the above rule, in order to give the song a better feel and have it flow better.

My lover’s got humor
She’s the gig­gle at a funeral
Knows everybody’s dis­ap­proval
I should have 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

(Hey God)

Why are you doing this to me?
Am I not living up to what I’m supposed to be?
Why am I seething with this animosity?
(Hey God)
I think you owe me a great big apology

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

(Hey God)

I really don’t know what you mean
Seems like salvation comes only in our dreams
I feel my hatred grow all the more extreme
(Hey God)
Can this world really be as sad as it seems?

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

(Everything)
Terrible lie
(My sweet everything)
Terrible lie
(I give you everything)
Terrible lie
(My sweet everything)

I was born sick,

But I love 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

Don’t take it away from me, I need someone to hold on to

Don’t take it away from me, I need someone to hold on to
Don’t take it away from me, I need someone to hold on to
Don’t take it away from me, I need someone to hold on to

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

Don’t take it away from me, I need someone to hold on to

Don’t take it away from me, I need someone to hold on to
Don’t take it away from me, I need you to hold on to
Don’t take, don’t take, don’t take it, don’t take it, don’t

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

(Hey God)
There’s nothing left for me to hide
I lost my ignorance, security and pride
I’m all alone in a world you must despise
(Hey God)

I believed the promises, your promises and lies

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. Amen.

Terrible lie

(Everything)
Terrible lie
(My sweet everything)
Terrible lie
(I give you everything)
Terrible lie
(My sweet everything)
Terrible lie

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

You made me throw it all away, my morals left to decay

(Terrible lie)
How many you betray you’ve taken everything
(Terrible lie)
My head is filled with disease, my skin is begging you please
(Terrible lie)
I’m on my hands and knees, I want so much to believe

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

I give you everything, my sweet everything

I give you everything, my sweet everything
I give you everything, my sweet everything
I give you everything, my sweet everything
There’s nothing left for me to hide

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…..
