Lost
Church Lyrics


Sometimes I'm wondering under prehistoric skies.
I feel it's all beginning right before my eyes.
I must go back, reexamine my love.
Here she comes with the penetrated stare.

I don't know when, but I wish I knew where.
Quick calculation, there's not nearly enough.
Because we're lost, because we're lost.
Cold desert stars, feel them sparkle and frost,
They are so lost.

Follow her down to worship some god.
Who never speaks to me, I wonder if that's odd.
Then he says you're never listening.
The pursuit of adulation is your butter and your bread.

It's an exquisite corpse and its lips are red
And its teeth are glistening.
But you are lost, but you are lost.
Now hang up 'cause the lines are all crossed,
You are so lost.

If you're alone and you're feeling blue,
Everyone in Persia probably feels like that too.
I just hope they don't believe like you do.
Here she comes with her unforgiving web.

Almost forever I've been drinking these dregs.
It must be time to change our brew, cruel, view.
Before we're lost, before we're lost.
Look at the map, add up the cost,
Before we're lost.

Who never speaks to me, I wonder if that's odd
Then he says you're never listening

The pursuit of adulation is your butter and your bread
It's an exquisite corpse, and its lips are red
And its teeth are glistening

But you are lost, but you are lost
Now hang up 'cause the lines are all crossed
You are so lost

If you're alone and you're feeling blue
Everyone in Persia probably feels like that too
I just hope they don't believe like you do

Here she comes with her unforgiving web
Almost forever I've been drinking these dregs
It must be time to change our brew, cruel view

Before we're lost, before we're lost
Look at the map, add up the cost
Before we're lost

One of the best albums ever...start to finish.

Marie Rodriguez

One of my favourite bands along with New Order. I'm a lucky bitch to have reincarnated in the 70s just in time to fall in love with the 80s. I got lost in the Back Rooms.

I saw these cats back in the day...Everyone was waiting for "Under The Milkyway"...I liked that song, but i liked this one better...They were playing in a small place, so you could go up and talk to them..During the set break, I asked if they could play this...They did!!! I was in heaven!! Blue Aeroplane opened for them. They were playing in Washington D.C. at an old sound studio that used to be a roller skating rink...The acoustics were awesome there!!!

Underappreciated, even in their own country. Most people only remember them for a few hits back in the 80's, but they have been releasing sublime albums for decades. There have been more famous and revered Australian bands (most of whom made only one or two decent albums in their careers), but The Church stand head and shoulders above them all in terms of quality, consistency, and relevance.

You just gave away the lost treasure of CHURCH, this radio play music, way before most never heard of 🙏🏻🙏🏻🍻

Robert Roehrman

Been an consistent fan of theirs since 1982 and seen them live a gang of times...

normanbates' mom amen. I saw them in 1988 in KC. One of the best concerts ever.

Richard Fortin

One of my all time favorite albums. Every song is great. Brings back memories for me from another time, another place.
