Take Me
Hozier 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 and 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 and 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 and 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 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

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
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

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
A-, 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
Take me to church

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
Oh, oh, 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
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

Here's a story:

I love music and passed that Onto my kids...I have four kids. My son is eleven. When this song came out he was six.
I decided to never shelter my kids fe music. I don't mind talking to my kids about anything as well

I am lutheran and raise my kids lutheran. I also have a lot of sympathy for gay people. I have no idea their struggles and I can only imagine how hard it must be in family's that judge so harsh with no compassion.

Anyway when this came out my kids was six. Came on the radio and he just loved it. He would tell me to play the church song...he associates it with church, which he really enjoyed.

My older son was like fifteen and explained the meaning of this song so when my younger son wanted to see the video on my phone I decided to let him watch it.

He didn't understand and I explained it to him as best I could to a six year old.

It opened up a conversation for me to teach my son at a young age to have compassion for others....there's so much violence I
In the world and hate crimes that kids see all day even on the new so I figured why not turn that to advantage and let me kid love his song and start young seeing how ugly hate is.

My mom didn't like me letting him see it but with the way things are in the world my kids are growing up in I don't feel like sheltering is the best choice. I feel like using any tool I have to reach my kids before the world does.

like you, let's start with christianity. You said Christmas was the only holiday stolen. Thats just false. Literally most of the christian traditions have been seen in religions before it, they even technically stole most of their traditions from judaism. The cross, the trinity, the fish, Easter, even the battle between good and evil thats going on with God and the devil, all of those things came waaay before Christianity and are found in various polythiestic religions.

My point in bringing up bonobos and chimps and historical societies wasn't to say our version of homosxual identity is seen throughout the world. But that primates were never meant to only have heterosxual sx. Sxuality may be a recent human concept, but having sx with both males and females is natural across many societies and cultures.

You also brought up mice due to DNA. And while we use mice to figure out a lot about our DNA, im talking about us as a species of primates. We socialize and mate an awful lot like our closest relatives. Which isnt biologically heterosxual or monogamous.

Greece and Rome the parents weren't blamed for homosxuality. Hell, most of their gods and goddesses partook in homo and bisxual behaviors. And yeah, they didnt have the concept of homosxual vs heterosxual, but they still partook in homosxual sx often. Notably Alexander the great, Julius ceaser, the band of thebes, most Spartans, etc.

Humans literally aren't built for sx to be purely reproductive. Biologically and sociologically we have sx with the same sx and the opposite sx.

If this was a purely new cultural thing, homosxual sx wouldn't occur across every culture and across thousands of animal species.
