Sing Me The Chant – FeatherWriter

featherwriter:

Had Hozier lived in Thedas, perhaps he would have written a song for blood mages in love, beneath the Chantry’s watchful gaze. A cover of “Take Me To Church” for the Dragon Age series.

Original Song: “Take Me To Church” by Hozier
Background Track: Michael Gaffney
Lyrics and Cover: FeatherWriter

Lyrics

My lover’s not hurtful
She’s a smile in the Circle
Her rivalry or her approval
Laid claim upon my soul
If a Herald ever did speak
She’s the Fade’s new mouthpiece
Every spell draining ‘til I’m weak
Cultivating her mystique
Power’s our curse
They say there’s none worse

Chantry offers no absolutes
Tells us worship our tormenters
The gilded cage that we’ve been sent to
Disappears when I’m with you
Pay your price quick
Can barely feel it
Enthralled beneath your spell

Amen, Amen, Amen

Sing me the chant
I’ll howl like a dog with each dissonant chord
I’ll smile as I burn, and you can sharpen your sword
Take from me this lifeless life
Oh, Maker, let this be my reward

Abominations of a new kind
Don’t let them come to light
Hold the secrets deep inside
Paint your lips with perfect lies
Forget what they teach
Embrace the Fade’s reach

No more wasting our potential
Bare your soul to the essential
Why hold back if we’re able?
Binding demons into faithful
Let the veins bleed
Raise a new creed
Bless this holy work

(Chorus)

No passions or fear when the ritual begins
There is no sweeter innocence than our desperate sin
In the shadow and blood of that sad, fallen scene
Only then I’m made human, only then I am clean

Amen, Amen, Amen

(Chorus)
