To Teach Obedience

This song is by Rome and appears on the album Die Æsthetik Der Herrschaftsfreiheit (2011).

To be saved and to be lost
In the same breath
And to teach obedience still
No flesh so perfect
To ever find rest
Behind your temper's will

There's always some fear in love
There's always an ax above
No need to shoo flies
Nothing but mockery
Is what you inflamed in me
No need for further lies

Have you learned to walk only to run?
How is a man to remain silent
In face of this
Prudent in face of this?
Have you learned to touch only to hurt?
How is a man to remain silent
In face of this
Prudent in face of this?

Our courage wants to laugh
Our anger wants to sing
So let him who writes these songs
In blood
Let him be without sin

There's always some fear in love
There's always an ax above
No need to shoo flies
Nothing but mockery
Is what you inflamed in me
No need for further lies

Have you learned to walk only to run?
How is a man to remain silent
In face of this
Prudent in face of this?
Have you learned to touch only to hurt?
How is a man to remain silent
In face of this
Prudent in face of this?

Hold, hold, ...

Spit on each new idol
Don't you follow me
Burn down each new altar
Don't you believe in me

There's always some fear in love
There's always an ax above
No need to shoo flies
Nothing but mockery
Is what you inflamed in me
No need for further lies

Have you learned to walk only to run?
How is a man to remain silent
In face of this
Prudent in face of this?
Have you learned to touch only to hurt?
How is a man to remain silent
In face of this
Prudent in face of this?
