Church Lyrics

God I've been asleep so long, I've been away
Back from software limbo the natives call today
I let their promises bind me
I let seductive logic blind me
I embraced a machine, I went through the routine
And I hid from the people who were trying to find me
Till the day comes when you realize
Otherwise you never care
Pandora's box reveals a new surprise
Can't wait to see your eyes, now you've been tantalized
For a hundred and one voluptuous days I broke the law
The labyrinth was closing so we panicked up a door
I let their wanton flesh obsess me
I felt their dreams and drugs assess me
I was hired and fired yet never inspired
Flattering, chattering words to impress me
All that glittered had me mesmerized
Otherwise I would have dared
Guess the nature of our enterprise
Can't stop to sympathize, how you've been tantalized
I turned up in some harsh doomed city on another plane
I couldn't believe the room I got or the guests I entertained
I felt the dirty streets surround me
I let the buzzing swarm confound me
I gave money to ghosts, I insulted my hosts
I could never get off the stuff that spellbound me

From my absolute favorite Church album. Heyday is magic from start to finish. Saw them and Echo & The Bunnymen  at the Aragon in Chicago on April 9, 1986.

Starfish is great too lets be honest


Gosh, how did I miss that show. I saw so many concerts in Chicago that year!

The Blurred Crusade and Heyday. Two of the finest Australian albums ever. Period.

One of the best bands in the world, been at it for years, underated and one of my favorites, the hologram of baal aint bad either.

Matt Bockbrader

Hologram of Baal is a masterpiece! Their last album, "Man Woman Life Death Infinity" is excellent as well.

Job Wallis
