Syndir Guðs (Opinberun Frelsarans) { Sins of God (revelation of the saviour) }

Created in the image of mankind
In the form of a man and a woman
Double was his sin said his son
For all of eternity a never-ending war
My soul leaves no one sees don't deject but soothe
My philosophy, always correct?
It is better to accept than to give
said the rich one and all his class
I who taught here so many things
but no one listened - that troubled me
but I learnt that life here was hard
after all, it was I who hung on the cross
An honest loner, that was I, that I swear
but the broad road was easier to pass
that road I walk and the cross I bear

    General CommentDefinitely pro-God/Jesus. It's basically talking about what he did for us. Personally, I'm an Atheist, so I'll leave it up to the religious ones lol.

    Amazing song.

    General CommentThis song is called \"Sins of God.\" Christians, an others think that God is perfect. So we have a play on a popular view. The song is also called \"revelation of the savior,\" which accepts that there actually is a savior (he reveals \"God\'s sins).\" The band sings about an imperfect god and a new revelation of Jesus. This registers to me as fairly religious, not zealous, nothing surprising in world history. Nothing can be proved about god existing, so I am glad that Sigur Ros rarely addresses the subject.
