I gave up on you a long time ago How can you blame me? We made plans to meet and you never showed You kept me waiting They said everything would work out just fine They said you'd help me But as it turns out it was all a lie And they're off someplace far away laughing at me
You've been there for me one time in my life But it didn't matter You came and went so fast all my hope And faith in you shattered And now here I sit alone in this room No one to confide in You watched all my dreams come apart at the seams You laughed, you left, you waited in hiding
Bless me dark father I have sinned I've done it before and I'll do it again 'Cause it keeps me warm, and makes you smile Been beneath me all the while Hell yes
You gave up on me along time ago I can't say I blame you I rejected the faith in your holy rays Is what it comes down to They said everything would work out just fine I just went crazy But I'm better now having a good time Being selfish, and drunken, and vulgar, and lazy
Bless me dark father I have sinned I've done it before and I'll do it again 'cause it keeps me warm, and makes you smile Been beneath me all the while
Bless me dark father I can't win Without you I'm as good as dead 'Cause you keep me warm, you make me smile You've been on my shoulder all the while
Whispering sweet nothings Whispering sweet nothings Whispering sweet nothings You've been whispering sweet nothings

Ben from Manchester, United KingdomI think it is more of a metaphor for doing to the things Christianity says are wrong. As Skiba is says in interviews he is spiritual but doesn't believe in the Christian God it is unlikly he would worship a part of the same religion.
Kacey Musgraves originally offered "Follow Your Arrow" to her friend Katy Perry. However, Perry thought Musgraves should record the song herself as it seemed, "like something that you would totally say."
