Selling The Drama Lyrics - Live

Review The Song (1)



and to love: a god
and to fear: a flame
and to burn a crown that has a name
and to right or wrong
and to meek or strong
it is known, just scream it from the wall

i've willed, i've walked, i've read
i've talked, i know, i know,
i've been here before

hey, now we won't be raped
hey, now we won't be scarred like that

it's the sun that burns
it's the wheel that turns
it's the way we sing that makes 'em dream

and to christ: a cross
and to me: a chair
sponsored links
i will sit and earn the ransom
from up here

i've willed, i've walked, i've read
i've talked, i know, i know,
i've been here before

hey, now we won't be raped
hey, now we won't be scarred like that
hey, now we won't be raped
hey, now we won't be scarred like that
scarred like that

and to love: a god
and to fear: a flame
and to burn a love that has a name

i've willed, i've walked, i've read
i've talked, i know, i know,
i've been here before

hey, now we won't be raped
hey, now we won't be scarred like that
hey, now we won't be raped
hey, now we won't be scarred like that

Religion as a dramatic act | Reviewer: Madoda Phoswa | 8/16/14

This is Live's most explicit song concerning religion. It is a critique of mainstream beliefs that the believer has to adhere to and the accompanying practises of loving a god and fearing the flame and so on. Central to this is the employment of dramatic techniques to put the audience in an altered state of mind: "its the way we sing that makes them dream". The main idea here is that these dramatic techniques are soon followed by collection of money (thithes etc) hence the title of the song "selling the drama". It is regrattable that Ed et al can see the deficiences and contradictions of religion but continue to engage in religion themselves, the Eastern religions they have been experimenting with.
