    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's 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
    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
    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
    Drain the whole sea
    Get something shiny
    Something meaty for the main course
    That's a fine lookin' 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

    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
