This Is Gospel

Album: Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die! (2013)
Charted: 87
  • This is gospel for the fallen ones
    Locked away in permanent slumber
    Assembling their philosophies
    From pieces of broken memories

    Oh, this is the beat of my heart, this is the beat of my heart
    Oh, this is the beat of my heart, this is the beat of my heart

    The gnashing teeth and criminal tongues conspire against the odds
    But they haven't seen the best of us yet

    If you love me let me go
    If you love me let me go
    'Cause these words are knives that often leave scars
    The fear of falling apart
    And truth be told, I never was yours
    The fear, the fear of falling apart

    Oh, this is the beat of my heart, this is the beat of my heart
    Oh, this is the beat of my heart, this is the beat of my heart

    This is gospel for the vagabonds,
    Ne'er-do-wells, insufferable bastards
    Confessing their apostasies
    Led away by imperfect impostors

    Oh, this is the beat of my heart, this is the beat of my heart
    Oh, this is the beat of my heart, this is the beat of my heart

    Don't try to sleep through the end of the world
    Bury me alive
    'Cause I won't give up without a fight

    If you love me let me go
    If you love me let me go
    'Cause these words are knives that often leave scars
    The fear of falling apart
    And truth be told, I never was yours
    The fear, the fear of falling apart

    Oh, the fear of falling apart
    Oh, the fear, the fear of falling apart

    Oh (This is the beat of my heart)
    The fear of falling apart

    Oh (This is the beat of my heart)
    The fear of falling apart

    Oh (This is the beat of my heart)
    The fear of falling apart

    Oh (This is the beat of my heart)

  • Vanny from Jefferson WiI love this song a lot and I wanted to comment on this OwO
  • DelaneyI also love the line “if you love me let me go”, because it’s so honest. I love the line “truth be told I never was yours” because it’s kinda like saying “you don’t own me” and I respect that.
  • Sinneyah Day from Albany Ny I like the line "the fear of falling apart " because it reminds me of how scared I was when my old boyfriend broke up with me
