She moves with shameless wonder
The perfect creature rarely seen
Since some lie I brought the thunder
When the land was godless and free

Her eyes look sharp and steady
Into the empty parts of me
Still my heart is heavy
With the hate of some other man's beliefs

Always a well dressed foe
Who wouldn't spare the rod
Never for me

Screaming the name
Of a foreigner's God
Screaming the name
Of a foreigner's God
Screaming the name
Of a foreigner's God
The purest expression of grief

Wondering who I'll copy
Muster in some tender charm
She feels no control of her body
She feels no safety in my arms

I've no language left to say it
All I do is crave to her
Breaking if I try to convey it
The broken love I make to her

All that I've been taught
And every word I've got
Is foreign to me

Screaming the name
Of a foreigner's God
Screaming the name
Of a foreigner's God
Screaming the name
Of a foreigner's God
The purest expression of grief

Screaming the name
Of a foreigner's God
Screaming the name
Of a foreigner's God
Screaming the name
Of a foreigner's God
The purest expression of grief

Screaming the name
Of a foreigner's God
Screaming the name
Of a foreigner's God
Screaming the name
Of a foreigner's God
The purest expression of grief

My dudes. Hozier songs are open to interpretation and can often be seen multiple ways (which I love), but consider that colonialism took everything from the Irish. Hands down one of the most underrated Hozier songs of all time either way

April Powell

@Venus King good point, while I'm no expert, Its pretty clear that 1. Colonialism fucked everyone up, and 2. Christianity has become the exact opposite of what it was meant to be.

Venus King

@April Powell christianity was brought by colonialism, so it's a criticism of both, in my opinion.

April Powell

It's also, much like take me to church, a criticism of religion. Mostly christianity. Least that's how I interpret it

genius.

Look I have no clue what he's talking about but if I blast his music it completely drowns out my mental health problems so I'd call it a win

Keantha

I always felt it was talking about a relationship with a woman who comes from an abusive background. Abuse victims are often conditioned to consider their abuser's words are law, those beliefs would be a foreign God to what he knows. 'She has no control of her body, feels no safety in my arms.'

@Nitaavi Larry I honestly doubt it. The one above me is better.
