False God Lyrics – Taylor Swift

False God Lyrics

We were crazy to think
Crazy to think that this could work
Remember how I said I’d die for you?
We were stupid to jump
In the ocean separating us
Remember how I’d fly to you?

And I can’t talk to you when you’re like this
Staring out the window like I’m not your favorite town
I’m New York City, I still do it for you, babe
They all warned us about times like this
They say the road gets hard and you get lost
When you’re led by blind faith, blind faith

But we might just get away with it
Religion’s in your lips
Even if it’s a false god
We’d still worship
We might just get away with it
The altar is my hips
Even if it’s a false god
We’d still worship this love
We’d still worship this love
We’d still worship this love

I know heaven’s a thing
I go there when you touch me, honey
Hell is when I fight with you
But we can patch it up good
Make confessions and we’re begging for forgiveness
Got the wine for you

And you can’t talk to me when I’m like this
Daring you to leave me just so I can try and scare you
You’re the West Village
You still do it for me, babe
They all warned us about times like this
They say the road gets hard and you get lost
When you’re led by blind faith, blind faith

But we might just get away with it
Religion’s in your lips
Even if it’s a false god
We’d still worship
We might just get away with it
The altar is my hips
Even if it’s a false god
We’d still worship this love
We’d still worship this love
We’d still worship this love, ah

Still worship this love
Even if it’s a false god
Even if it’s a false god
Still worship this love

False God Lyrics

The phrase false god is a derogatory term used in Abrahamic religions to indicate cult images or deities of non-Abrahamic, Pagan religions – as well as other competing entities or objects to which particular importance is attributed. Conversely, followers of polytheistic religions may regard the gods of various monotheistic religions as “false gods” because they do not believe that any real deity possesses the properties ascribed by monotheists to their sole deity.

Atheists, who do not believe in any deities, do not usually use the term “false god” even though that would encompass all deities from the atheist viewpoint. Usage of this term is generally limited to theists, who choose to believe in some deity or more deities, but not in others.

In Abrahamic religions, a false god is a deity or object of worship besides the Abrahamic god that is regarded as either illegitimate or non-functioning in its professed authority or capability, and this characterization is further used as a definition of “idol”. The term is often used throughout the Abrahamic scriptures (Torah, Tanakh, Bible, and Quran) to compare Yahweh (interpreted by Jews, Samaritans, and Christians) or Elohim/Allah[4] (interpreted by Muslims) as the only true God.

Nevertheless, the Hebrew Bible/Old Testament itself recognizes and reports that originally the Israelites were not monotheists but actively engaged in idolatry and worshipped many foreign, non-Jewish Gods besides Yahweh and/or instead of him, such as Baal, Astarte, Asherah, Chemosh, Dagon, Moloch, Tammuz, and more, and continued to do so until their return from the Babylonian exile (see Ancient Hebrew religion).

The vast majority of religions in history have been and/or are still polytheistic, worshipping many diverse deities. Moreover, the material depiction of a deity or more deities has always played an eminent role in all cultures of the world.

They claim to worship the “one and only true God” that came with the arrival of Abrahamic religions and is the distinguishing characteristic of their monotheistic worldview, whereas virtually all the other religions in the world have been and/or are still polytheistic.

However, the term “false god” is regarded as offensive by many devout polytheistic Pagans[citation needed], and others whose chosen religion honors the deity or deities who are explicitly or implicitly being denounced by the term “false god.”
