    YouTube : The Sundays

    Looking for an insult there's a trickle in my head
    Seeing it's worth the effort I forgive myself
    Talks that we had are becoming a blur
    If only I could love my neighbour

    Waiting here for the next time with a bottle in my hand
    Doing it for the exercise I forget myself
    The face that you had is becoming a blur
    But how was I supposed to know that?

    Because God made me
    That's all they told me before
    And how about you?
    And it's off to work we go

    Now you can forget about a labour of love
    It just won't wash anymore
    We'd love to be good but we'd rather be bad
    But how was I supposed to know that?

    Because God made me
    That's all they told me before
    And how about you?
    Because God made people
    That was the luck of the draw
    We do what we want
    God made me
    That's what they told me before
    Who knows what they'll say today?

    Because God made me for his sins
    Imagine my eyes when I first saw
    We can do what we want
    How could I know?
    How could I know about it?


    What can we make of this?

    What is the state of the singer's faith?

    Unfortunately, that doesn't mean anything coming from you. Would you care to explain what you might have thought you meant?

    "What can we make of this?"

    Undefinable and incoherent gibberish.

    "What is the state of the singer's faith?"

    What faith? Faith in what?

    Although The Sundays were not a Christian band, the singer/writer believes she was created by God. There is obviously some 'turmoil' in her mind with regard to that ~ the upshot of that, perhaps ~ and the song and its words may have resonated with theists (of various degrees of conviction) when they heard them. So, yep, this is surely the right forum for this kind of speculation.

    Undefinable and incoherent gibberish.

    Song lyrics are a form of poetry. In this case, what is being conveyed is impressionistic and achieved as if with dabs of paint [fragments/details], leaving it up to the active listener to interpret the effect and how/if those dabs resonate.
