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's 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. 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



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



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. 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



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

This may just be the perfect Luther/Alice song, wow. I love the build of this, it feels relentless as one of Alice's black holes. And I very much love ending it on him throwing the coat over the bridge. Gorgeous work.

This is gorgeous. I don't know the characters or the story behind their relationship but that song seems perfect for them.

Wow, this is so so good, deliberate and sharp. And on a sidenote, the source quality is the best I've seen so far, so kudos to you on getting your vid looking beautiful, too, heh.

Thanks so much! And heh, I'm glad you noticed--I reacquired and reclipped prettier Luther source once the last season was over, and I'm glad it was noticeable and not wasted work. :)

It's such a messed up, fucked up relationship and you've captured that so well in this vid. And Alice as the sharp knife works beautifully.

Thank you and you're welcome! My John/Alice feelings are always hard to pin down, there's just too many of them. :D I'm so happy you liked it, the song hit me out of nowhere and I just HAD TO DO IT for your John/Alice request.

Amazing. This gives me a really strong feeling like the song could actually be sung by the character and that could actually be his voice. Brilliant musicality in all ways, especially the rhythm of the cutting around 0:16-0:44.

From: [personal profile] metatxt
*SWOON* UGH this so perfectly captures their intractable, relentless attraction. I love how this is so sharply close-up on their dynamic and all of the prickly edges. And also the way John can't help himself but admire her?! You really capture their intimacy with an unflinching gaze. Really dig this.

From: [personal profile] sanguinity
That is an amazing song choice for those two. I keep watching this over again with the goal of saying something cogent when I finish, and yet I keep reaching the end and discovering that once again I am blinking myself out of a trance, without a single thought in my head other than a glazed ooooh.

So I'm afraid that's the comment you're going to get: a somewhat glazed (but sincerely felt!) ooooh.
