Lyrics:
I don’t wanna be your personal Jesus
I don’t wanna live inside of that flame In a way
I wanna be my own believer
I don’t wanna play your video game

I don’t wanna be the center of the universe
I don’t wanna be a part of that shameIn a way
I wanna be my own redeemer
I don’t wanna play your video game

I don’t care if everybody else is into it
I don’t care if it’s a popular refrain
I don’t wanna be a puppet in a theater
I don’t wanna play your video game

You don’t wanna be the one who has to pay for it
You don’t wanna be the one who has to change
All you want is what the resumé tells you
I don’t wanna play your video game
Chorus…

I don’t wanna play, I don’t wanna play (I just wanna go away)
I don’t wanna play your video game

I don’t wanna love you if won’t receive it
I don’t wanna save the world that way
I don’t wanna be your personal Jesus
I don’t wanna play your video game

I don’t wanna put the devil on a pedestal
I don’t wanna put the saints in chains
I just wanna make my life a little easier
I don’t wanna play your video game
Chorus…

I don’t wanna be your Julius Caesar
I don’t want it to go down that way
But in a way you gotta follow the procedure
So go ahead and play your video game
Chorus…

Sufjan Stevens: drums and percussion, Tempest, Prophet 08, Prophet 6, vocals

  5. I don’t want to put the devil on a pedestal I don’t want to put the saints in chains I just want to make my life a little easier I don’t wan to play yo video game 👌🏻

  6. I want to be a person dancing on Sufjan vídeos

  7. Its hard to find good music nowadays, this is not the case..Nice Song👌

  8. Not calling this the deserving hot hit of summer 2021, but it goddamn should be

  9. I only know the last line of the chorus so I sing "all you have in your house is Call of Duty I don't wanna play your video games" instead

  10. Still praying for a Sufjan Stevens / Imogen Heap duet.

  11. Them: But you can't Dance to Sufjan

    Video Games Video: think again

  12. Dance hit of the summer, if it's not that already.
    "I don't wanna put the devil on a pedestal
    I don't wanna put the saints in chains"
    Celebrate life. trump is gone and Covid is disappearing.
    Don't let your guard down.

  23. Per essere ulteriormente preciso io sono l'assoluto iddio in vita umana vissuta nelle sue insormontabilita'. E sarò comunque liddio nell'altra sponda o riva.

  27. Jalaiah is really such an essential part of this song. I can’t listen to the song on my phone without thinking of her dance. She really solidified herself her and I love it

  28. When my lovely one left me, I decided to fall in love with a far away, like I did as a teen, and Sufjan came around
