Lyrics

My lover's got humour
She's the giggle at a funeral

Knows everybody's disapproval
I should've worshipped her sooner

If the Heavens ever did speak
She is 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

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

So 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

So 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

To 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
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
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
So 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
So you can sharpen your knife
Offer me that deathless death
Good God, let me give you my life
