Portugal. The Man - Modern Jesus [Thom alt-J Remix]

There have been a few remixes of Portugal. The Man’s tune “Modern Jesus,” but the latest is from the UK band Alt-J, who I have taken quite a shine too over these last few months. The remix is actually from member Thom Green of Alt-J, who creates the right atmosphere for this band and has a cool illustrated video to boot.

Portugal The Man – Modern Jesus (Thom alt-J Remix) Lyrics:
Come on in
Take a seat next to me
You know we got
We got what you need

We may be liars
Preachin’ to choirs
But we can
We can sell your dreams

You don’t need sympathy
They got a pill for everything
Just take that dark cloud
Ring it out to wash it now

Don’t pray for us
We don’t need no modern jesus
To roll with us
The only road we need is never givin’ up
The only faith we have is faith in us

We’re the one’s who start little fires
Yet they burn out
But when they’re on the rise
It can’t help but shine

And when the wave approaches
Take our ashes to the ocean
Who cares if hell awaits
We’re having drinks at Heaven’s gates

Don’t pray for us
We don’t need no modern jesus
To roll with us
The only road we need is never givin’ up
The only faith we have is faith in us

We know that we’re helpless
At least we always assume
But we don’t need to prove nothin’ to you

Let’s keep it cool
You don’t need to feel blue
Cause we wont sell you nothin’
You can’t use

Don’t pray for us.
We don’t need no modern jesus.
To roll with us.
The only road we need is never givin’ up.
The only faith we have is faith in us.
