Love this song. The lyrics are very thought provoking. See previous post for song video
Song by Hozier
“Take Me To Church”
My lover’s got humour
She’s the giggle at a funeral
Knows everybody’s disapproval
I should’ve worshiped 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
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
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

Scientific research has reported that music with a definitive beat and rhythm is able to stimulate brain waves to synchronize with the beat.
- Faster beats are shown to bring a sharper concentration and improved alertness.
- Slow tempos ease the brain’s wave and lead to a calm state.
- Additional research has shown that music’s ability to shift the brain waves’ activity levels allows the brain to shift speeds on its own, meaning the positive benefits to your brain last well after you have stopped listening to the music.
- These findings make it clear why it is now common to see positive results when playing music to sharpen the focus of children with ADD.
- Music is one of the few activities in life that utilizes the entire brain.
- Music can distract, provide control and cause people’s mind, breathing and heart rate to relax.
