Dandy Warhols Godless Lyrics

Last updated: 12/28/2011 10:00:00 AM

Hey I said you're godless and
it seems like you're a soulless friend
as thoughtless as you were back then
I swear that you are godless
hey I guess you loved me when
I gave or when you took something
it's stranger than it's ever been
I guess, it's what you wanted
of late it seems lonely I will be
I beg, I plead
but this is all that I have gotten
hey as for the day my friend
to hope that you could ever bend
I swear you are, I swear you are
I swear, that you are godless
hey I said you're godless
hey and you're a soulless friend
hey I said you're heartless
and I swear, I swear
godless
godless
you're godless

pharisees | Reviewer: arya ok | 12/28/11

i don't know maybe it's because i'm a xpreachers kid and see hypocrisy of religion in politics but i think it's about a wider target - those people who talk about god like he's in their back pocket but act without respect for mother earth or people other than those of their own persuasion - i think they were called pharisees back in the day



Less about the lyrics, more about the tune | Reviewer: BeBop60 | 6/24/10

The song Godless begins with what sounds like synthesized guitar feedback--it has a haunting, gut-wrenching air raid siren sound to set the mood. That eery sound suggests strongly that you may not want to know the person the singer is going to describe lyrically--godless, soulless, a taker not a giver, a black hole where light enters but does not escape. The feedback transitions into a guitar riff that sounds at first hearing to be George Harrison's My Sweet Lord, but as one of the reviewers indicated, this tune is not the same song. The Godless tune is better and won't get the Dandy Warhols hauled into court as My Sweet Lord did with Harrison and his minor changes to the R&B song He's So Fine (Doodle-lang, Doodle-lang, Doodle-lang). Ultimately the Dandy Warhols' lyrics are boosted in their sarcasm of a supposed friend by the unforgettable tune that colors and bends the lyrics. The abrupt Beatlesque ending (She's So Heavy) suggests that the singer/writer has said all he wanted to, and the song and strained friendship are absolutely finished.



DiG! was as inaccurate as can be. | Reviewer: Ballard | 5/5/07

The song isn't about Anton Newcombe.

The rivalry between The BJM and the Dandys was portrayed as something huge. In reality, they were friends.

IMHO, the movie unfairly portrays Newcombe and his band.

Great comments above, all.

I always fancied; wouldn't it be interesting if this composition was about a dissatisfied bitterness that the author felt about his relationship with God him(/her)self?



amazing | Reviewer: mozbil | 2/27/07

brilliant sound and the most important thing is the lyrics that fits into every time and every person



Brian Jonestown massacre | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/21/05

I just saw "dig" and all becomes clear, this is about Anton from Brian Jonestown massacre. Damn awesome tune.

*awaits list of sarcastic remarks*

great tune. The intro almost made me think I was listening to My Sweet Lord. Soon I realized it was a much better tune.
