  • 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 Writer/s: BECK DAVID HANSEN, JOHN ROBERT KING, MICHAEL S. SIMPSON

  • 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.
