  • (Yeah)

    God gave me the sunshine
    Then showed me my lifeline
    I was told it was all mine
    Then I got laid on the ley line
    What a day, what a day
    And your Jesus really died for me
    Then Jesus really tried for me

    Uk and entropy
    I feel like it's fucking me
    Wanna feed off the energy
    Love living like a deity
    One a day, one day
    And your Jesus really died for me
    I guess Jesus really tried for me

    Bodies in the bodhi tree
    Bodies making chemistry
    Bodies of my family
    Bodies in the way of me
    Bodies in the cemetery
    And that's the way it's gonna be

    All we've ever wanted is to look good naked
    Hope that someone can take it
    God save me rejection from my reflection
    I want perfection

    Praying for the rapture
    'Cause it's stranger getting stranger
    And everything's contagious
    It's the modern middle ages
    All day, every day
    And if Jesus really died for me
    Then Jesus really tried for me

    Bodies in the bodhi tree
    Bodies making chemistry
    Bodies of my family
    Bodies in the way of me
    Bodies in the cemetery
    And that's the way it's gonna be

    All we've ever wanted is to look good naked
    Hope that someone can take it
    God save me rejection from my reflection
    I want perfection

    (Yeah)

    Bodies in the bodhi tree
    Bodies making chemistry
    Bodies of my family
    Bodies in the way of me
    Bodies in the cemetery
    Bodies in the bodhi tree
    Bodies making chemistry
    Bodies of my family
    Bodies in the way of me
    Bodies in the cemetery
    And that's the way it's gonna be

    All we've ever wanted is to look good naked
    Hope that someone can take it (someone can take it)
    God save me rejection from my reflection
    I want perfection

    Jesus didn't die for you (Jesus didn't die for you)
    What are you on? (I want perfection)
    Jesus didn't die for you (Jesus didn't die for you)
    What are you on? (bodies can die young) oh, Lord

    Jesus didn't die for you (oh)
    Jesus didn't die for you
    Jesus didn't die for you (oh) Writer/s: Brandon Christy, Craig Russo, Robert Peter Williams

  • James from Sydney, AustraliaThis song is brilliant. Not only does Robbie bring back his typical, upbeat yet melodic rhythms, the message within the lyrics is extremely deep. It's a fantastic example of an existentialist view on life, and for that I commend him. One with the courage to be outspoken on the rather touchy issue of religion in mainstream pop culture is one with integrity and understanding.
  • Darren from Aberdeenshire, United Kingdomi hope IAN BROWN (the Stone Roses Fame) has solictors listening to this garbage!!!!
