Gary Numan - A Question Of Faith Lyrics




I'll crawl for you
Hurt if you want to
I'll be the thing that you feed.

I'm not asking
For love or redemption
I'll sell my guilt to your need.

I'll breathe for you
Die if you want to
I'll mourn with you by my grave.

I dare you to judge me
Now God has disowned me
I've come to you to be saved.

They say I sold my soul.
We all reap what we sow.

I'll shine for you
Burn if you want to
You'll be the prize for my pain.

I'll kill your god
And pray for salvation
I'll be the in to your sane.

I'll lie for you
be your conscience in you
Sacrifice reason for shame.

I won't ask for
Faith or forgiveness
I'll be the blood in your veins.

They say I lost my way
I'll wait for judgement day.

Don't pray for my soul.
Don't pray for my soul.
Don't pray for my soul.
Don't pray for my soul.

I'll be your darkness
In the light
I'll be your vampire calling
In the dead of night

I'll be your demon
Shadow man
I'll be your one confession
And if I can

I'll be your nightmare
And scream for you
I'll be your one possesion
If you want me to

I'll be your secret
Memory,
I'll be your exhibition
Of atrocity.

They say I sold my soul.
We all reap what we sow.

They say I lost my way.
I'll wait for judgement day.

Don't pray for my soul.
Don't pray for my soul.
Don't pray for my soul.
Don't pray for my soul.

They kneel down, praise God
Shout allelujah,
Lift up their eyes when they pray.

When children kill children
Don't it make them wonder?
Don't it make them question their faith?

Gary Numan A Question Of Faith Comments
  1. Theron Hayden

    🖤🤘

  2. Doris Thistleton

    and I breath for my sole

  3. bahamut0310

    I remember when I first heard this album. The album was called Dawn when I saw it and had art from that comic. I was a questioning person at the time, always had been, still am and this album - and that comic - spoke to me. I had this CD on constant repeat for months.

  4. Hyper Hybrid

    From the recent trip to Istanbul the feeling and wavelength was very strong, this may be due to the European crossover of the Sunni side of Islam and mystical Sufi practice. My mother who is buried in a cemetery in England among the christian graves was very spiritual, more of the Fakir line. One uncle was Sunni the other Shia ( mainly practiced in Iran / Persia). Anyway my aunt from the Sunni side performed a witch/wizard ritual magic summoning the Djinn (Jinn). many Islamic scholars will say this is evil and devils work, but there is also a good side to Jinn. Otherwise it would not have appeared in the Koran.

  5. I Love the 80s

    I'm just not interested any artist's religious or atheist views. I could care less. Not why I like their music. Gary's included. I like Gary's voice and his way with synthesizers. I would like new music with high and low synth registers, the lows with the soaring highs. I haven't found any other musician who can create the kind of music Gary can make using synths.

  6. Tristan Schofield

    I love how diverse Gary Numans musical catalog is... and I may be in the minority but I love his early stuff, his mid to late 80s stuff and his darker 90s and 00s stuff. He just does it all well.

    BEAKER6868

    I don't think you speak in dissent at all. when it comes to bands that have been around for a long time, most people always say "the old stuff was better". I honestly don't think that's always the case with most bands, I think people have a tendency to like the old stuff from a band more because it's been around longer. and so it's had more time to grow on you, as opposed to something that's new. for me it's the very early, and the very recent Gary Numan that I like most.

  7. Ponweeman

    This album needs to be Remastered!

    Rhys Seddon

    Ponweeman I would buy it in a blink of an eye if they did

    JamesPolymer

    They did remaster it in the late 90s, though I think this album has been out of print for a while now.

    James Bush

    Apparently, Numan + Fenton are currently in the process of remastering this album and several others!

    Caleb Fuller

    @James Bush Not only remastering, apparently they are re-recording the whole damn thing! At least that's what Gary himself has said.

  8. Joseph James

    this song is a fave of mine. this next to Lilith Immaculate by CoF has become my anthem.

  9. Dean Winchester's Wolf

    I'll crawl for you
    Hurt if you want to
    I'll be the thing that you feed.

    I'm not asking
    For love or redemption
    I'll sell my guilt to your need.

    I'll breathe for you
    Die if you want to
    I'll mourn with you by my grave.

    I dare you to judge me
    Now God has disowned me
    I've come to you to be saved.

    They say I sold my soul.
    We all reap what we sow.

    I'll shine for you
    Burn if you want to
    You'll be the prize for my pain.

    I'll kill your god
    And pray for salvation
    I'll be the in to your sane.

    I'll lie for you
    be your conscience in you
    Sacrifice reason for shame.

    I won't ask for
    Faith or forgiveness
    I'll be the blood in your veins.

    They say I lost my way
    I'll wait for judgement day.

    Don't pray for my soul.
    Don't pray for my soul.
    Don't pray for my soul.
    Don't pray for my soul.

    I'll be your darkness
    In the light
    I'll be your vampire calling
    In the dead of night

    I'll be your demon
    Shadow man
    I'll be your one confession
    And if I can

    I'll be your nightmare
    And scream for you
    I'll be your one possesion
    If you want me to

    I'll be your secret
    Memory,
    I'll be your exhibition
    Of atrocity.

    They say I sold my soul.
    We all reap what we sow.

    They say I lost my way.
    I'll wait for judgement day.

    Don't pray for my soul.
    Don't pray for my soul.
    Don't pray for my soul.
    Don't pray for my soul.

    They kneel down, praise God
    Shout allelujah,
    Lift up their eyes when they pray.

    When children kill children
    Don't it make them wonder?
    Don't it make them question their faith?

  10. Col Master

    Great tune from legend. See you in London on the 20th March Gary, can't wait.

  11. lala lulu

    Check the Anubian lights remix it takes the song to a new level

  12. iwtv

    I just think that it's been easier for artists in the last two decades to speak more controversially (esp. religion) than it has been in the past...
    thanks to artists like NIN and Gary...it's so funny how everyone harped on Manson for being Satanic and taking his lyrics as such, when Gary's lyrics are so obviously anit-religion and he's been doing it way longer

  13. mothman197979

    He still is good, someppl have said on YT that he has crossed over to the dark side. Well I know more about Trent Reznor then Gary, however if you know his music from 1979 till now, he was always there. And I love it.

  14. Frank M

    This is a quality track back when Numan was good.

    Caleb Fuller

    Back when? So... 5 years later, have you heard his new album Savage? It's the sound of this, 10X!

    Parker Mangrum

    Frank M he still is good. He is better I saw him live 5 months ago it was the most amazing thing I have ever seen in my entire life

    pete cahill

    he has got better and better

  15. LicoriceLain

    @hehfilms As for Numan, he isn't questioning. He knows (he is a Gnostic Atheist) there is no God of any kind. This song is exploring how it affects his life.

  16. LicoriceLain

    @hehfilms You are kind of simple, aren't you? :P jk "Heresy" has multiple layers actually, each of them more exploratory than an assertion of a theological position. As for him claiming to be Deist, that doesn't run contradictory to what I said. Deist is quite possibly the most ambiguous standpoint of them all as it could entail absolutely anything including a belief in the Christian God minus the rituals. So no, I am not off base here.

  17. LicoriceLain

    @hehfilms "Question of Faith" is more honest, I must say, though. I don't know about anyone else, but the more I listen to Reznor's music, the more I get a Christian vibe. The way he phrases things on his later albums just doesn't sound right for someone who isn't a believer.

    Chris Cole

    LicoriceLain true

    Curtis

    Its more of a guy that grew up in the Midwest possibly believing in something that he no longer does. There's that want for something to be there and yet not feeling it. That's the vibe I get with Trent's later music.

  18. LicoriceLain

    @hehfilms Are you accusing him of ripping off Trent with song?

  19. Tiramisator

    @APracticableDreamer You got it.

  20. AudioGeek

    Sounds a lot like The Radial Pair's Kiss Me and Die song.

  21. Garrett Johnson

    I love this song!!!!
