Lied van de week: week 48 - 2013

Modern Jesus - Portugal. The Man


Bij het erg mooi nieuw liedje van Portugal. The Man hoort een intrigerende clip met beelden van de VS. En zo werd mijn interesse gewekt. De song beitelde zich langzaam vast in mijn hoofd.

Je vindt dit lied op het album Evil friends, dat je hier kan kopen.

Lyrics:

Come on in
Take a seat next to me
You know we got
We got what you need
We may be liars preaching to choirs
But we can
We can sell your dreams


You don't need sympathy
They got a pill for everything
Just take that dark cloud
Ring it out to wash it down, but


Don't pray for us
We don't need no modern Jesus
To roll with us
The only rule we need is never
Giving up
The only faith we have is faith in us


We're the ones who start little fires
Yet they burn out
But when they're on the rise
They can't help but shine


And when the wave approaches
Take our ashes to the ocean
Who cares if hell awaits?
We're having drinks at heaven's gate


Don't pray for us
We don't need no modern Jesus
To roll with us
The only rule we need is never
Giving up
The only faith we have is faith in us


We know that we're helpless
At least we always assume
But we don't need to prove nothing to you
Let's keep the cool
You don't need to feel blue
Cause we won't sell you nothing
You can't use


Don't pray for us
We don't need no modern Jesus
To roll with us
The only rule we need is never
Giving up
The only faith we have is faith in us
