Hozier – Moment’s Silence (Common Tongue) lyrics

[Verse 1]
When stunted hammers place with men my mere monstrosity
Alarms are struck I’m sure as shit by sheer atrocity
A cure I know that soothes the soul, the soul impossibly
A moment’s silence when my baby puts her mouth on
Me and my babe relaxin’ catching manic rhapsody
All reason flown, as God looks on in abject apathy
A swollen Lord that measly a prayer in perfect parody
A moment’s silence when my baby puts her mouth on me

[Chorus 1]

When the meaning’s gone, there is clarity

And the reason comes in the common tongue of your lovin’ me

And it’s easy, darling, I need a remedy

And the reason comes in the common tongue of your lovin’ me

[Verse 2]

What yields the need for those who lead us oh so morally

Those that would view the sin we do through their deformity

Who view the deed as power’s creed is pure authority

This moment’s silence when my baby puts her mouth on me

[Chorus 2]

Since it’s all been gone, to it’s reckoning

Then the reason comes in the common tongue of your lovin’ me

Be thankful, Son, now we lovingly

Let the reason come to the common tongue of your lovin’ me

[Chorus 3]

Like a heathen clung to the harmony

Let the reason come to the common tongue of your lovin’ me

It’s a silent night upon the rosary

Let the reason come in the common tongue of your lovin’ me
