Talk Talk Happiness Is Easy Lyrics

Last updated: 01/07/2013 09:21:56 AM

Makes you feel much older
Sublime the blind parade
It wrecks me how they justify
their acts of war they assemble, they pray

Take good care of what the priests say
After death
it's so much fun'
Little sheep
don't let your feet stray

Happiness is easy

Joy be written on the earth
And the sky above
Jesus star that shines so bright
Gather us in love


Guilt upon their shoulders
How well the cause evades
Infecting your religions,
claiming pacts
It's easy to shoulder the blame

Happiness is easy
Jesus came to Galilee
Happiness is easy
sailing on the sea
Happiness is easy
Jesus came to save our souls
Happiness is easy
and be a friend to me

(Instrumental)


Try to teach my children
To recognise excuse before it acts
From love and conviction to pray
Take good care of what the priests say
After death
it's so much fun'
Little sheep
don't let your feet stray

Happiness is easy

Jesus came to Galilee
sailing on the sea
Jesus came to save our souls
and be a friend to me
Jesus came to Galilee
sailing on the sea
Jesus came to save our souls
and be a friend to me
Joy be written on the earth
And the sky above
Jesus star that shines so bright
Gather us in love,
Gather us in love

Hypocrisy in religion | Reviewer: ilovethismusic | 1/7/13

Here's what Mark Hollis said in an interview, "So Happiness Is Easy is about wars in the name of God. Religion and war, two very different things that have nothing in common. That’s the first one. The second I Don’t Believe In You, has as its subject the propaganda films in which the government promised in 1945 that now everything would be as fantastic. Look at what is reality." In another article, Mark said, "I believe in a human form of Christianity, in religion, any religion, which is based on the freedom to make choices for themselves, on respect for each other." The song I Believe In You is about heroin addiction.

"Religion supresses bit Christianity sets you free." No harshness intended, but you really didn't nunderstand those lyrics. Try changing the Christian references to another religion of your choice and watch how different you will think and lose your "spiritual understanding" of these lyrics. Then read up about Mark Hollis, and listen to Talk Talk's "I don't believe in you" followed by "I believe in you". Maybe you'll get a deeper understanding as to what was really meant.

Hmmm, it's interesting that someone actually understands the difference between religion(made made rule) and Christianity(Heavenly guidelines). Religion suppress but Christianity set you free.

Excellent
