Day 226. “Hozier” by Hozier
2011-2014 was a really weird time in my life. I was itching to grow up, and make changes…but it wasn’t happening quickly enough. The music I was listening to at the time, strongly related to my state of being.
I rarely listened to my own music. Not necessarily a bad thing, because it opened me up to a lot of new artists/genres. However, I didn’t allow much time for myself.
It was also a very confusing time spent with a stranger…playing house. And, I couldn’t think of a better album to represent that portion of time in my life.
In addition, I believe there is a lot of relevancy to be talked about in regards to
Track 1- “Take me to Church”
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
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 (this line just reminds me of the movie “saved”)
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
Good God, let me give you my life
