Matt McAndrew - Take Me To Church 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
The fresh poison each week
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
So you can sharpen your knife
Offer me that deathless death
Oh, 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 that deathless death
Oh, 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?
Got 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 that deathless death
Oh, 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 that deathless death
Oh, 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

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 that deathless death
Oh, 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 that deathless death
Oh, good God, let me give you my life

Take me to church

Matt McAndrew Take Me To Church Comments
  1. Orchid Malevolence

    I think this guy don't deserve shit such The Voice. Glad he's the new vocalist of Slaves

  2. Anguscole76

    go listen to the new slaves tune,its so awesome.

  3. karla maage

    agree that he should have won...best singer they ever had on the voice

  4. Amir 2x

    2019 anyone

  5. Dina_874

    He’s now the band “slaves” lead singer:)

  6. J.R. Lobinsky

    Absolutely brilliant! He was my favorite singer from his season of The Voice and there were some great singers that season!

  7. MyLittleHecarim

    Matt got weight now, he's Heavier

  8. Max Mendiola

    why he didn’t win still confuses me 4 years later...

  9. Chris Robare

    He should have won. This performance was awesome.

  10. C SM

    It’s 2019 and the fact that he did not win still hurts

    Diragonoman

    When they announced Jonny had left the band I was like “wtf”...until I read who was replacing him. About damn time this man gets some recognition. He got robbed against that damn Boyd

    Nevaeh Anderson

    C SM I remember 8 year old me crying my head off when he didn’t win

    Ricky L

    OMG SAME HERE

    Mary Rosenwasser

    2020 And still hurting

    Matt Magee

    @Diragonoman jonny was kicked out lmao

  11. Snakeu Love

    I saw him with escape the fate and OMG I fell in looooovvvveeee

  12. Joey Thompson

    Chucky from Rugrats has some pipes

  13. Amber Smith

    *Only here because I saw he was filling in for Jonny Craig in Slaves and wanted to hear his voice

    Cody Ray Strimple

    Same. He sounds like Jonny would sound like if he was ever sober or supported his voice. Love Jonny’s voice but tbh I’m surprised his voice/range isn’t completely ruined already.

    Martin Hernandez

    Same here, gotta say I’m pretty disappointed, Jonny has such an amazing voice and this just isn’t doing it for me.😔Barely found out today when I noticed he wasn’t on the updated band picture on Apple Music. But your comment is 9 months ago and I could’ve sworn they released a single this year. Unless of course it’s the new guy in that song. That might be why something seemed different. Either way, still bummed out.

    Necrotic Reaper

    @Cody Ray Strimple It is. In most of the live clips I've seen he sounds awful.

    Jessica Jenkins

    Same here!

    Orchid Malevolence

    He's now recording with the band

  14. Guillermo Rivas

    New singer for the band Slaves, replacing Jonny Craig? Gonna miss Jonny Craig but this guy’s got some raw talent. I like him

  15. Laura Pennington
