"Godsends" as written by Peter John Murphy and Howard Hughes....
Of course we can see
From the lipstick that's used
From even the wig that sits
That's all we see of you
I've done it among the many who


From paint to health
Bricka-brack fashion
Giving you the talk back
Giving you the buzz
It's called a feedback
It's fierce
It's not from above
It's fierce


Tell my freinds they're all potential
They're all potential Godsends
I feel that this is me coming
You'll never meet me


Oh young and pure
An inward girl
A simple shape and mind
A no-mans land
A chosen ground
A sitting for the sign
Sashed and shorn
Hallowed be her name

Saying 'no I don't want to talk anymore'
Is the perogative of the superstar
I say no all the time
I'm super
So are you! say no

Tell my friends they're all potential
They're all potential Godsends
I feel that this is me coming
You'll never meet me

The message clear
For weak and strong
He takes no pleasure in your pain
The face is distant death

Saying 'no I don't want to talk anymore'
Is the perogative of the superstar
Put yourself on the line
Stay super
Say you!
Say no!

Tell my friends they're all potential
They're all potential -
-Godsends

I feel that this is me coming
Tell them they'll never meet me

    General CommentI think it may be about a cross-dresser. "An inward girl."

    "It's called a feedback; It's fierce; It's not from above; it's fierce" to me, means that God won't see this as such a bad thing, but everybody else judges you for it.

    My favorite part is when he sings "hallowed be her name." Which means to set apart her name from her male persona.
