GavoWeb: Wilco on Theologians

Original post at http://theologytalks.com/wilco-on-theologians/


In what is a bit of a break from our normal academic type talks. I thought this was interesting to share as part of “all this talk about God”.

Wilco has a song named Theologians on their “A Ghost is Born” album. The lyrics for the song go along like this.

They don’t know nothing
About my soul
About my soul

I’m an ocean
An abyss in motion
Slow motion
Slow motion

Inlitterati lumen fidei
God is with us everyday
That illiterate light
Is with us every night

That don’t know nothing
About my soul
Oh they don’t know

They thin my heart with little things
And my life with change
Oh in so many ways
I find more missing every day


I’m going away
Where you will look for me
Where I’m going you cannot come

No one’s ever gonna take my life from me
I lay it down
A ghost is born
A ghost is born
A ghost is born

I’m an ocean
I’m all emotion
I’m a cherry ghost
Cherry ghost

Hey I’m a cherry ghost
A cherry ghost
