They call you Jezebel
Whenever we walk in
You're going straight to hell
For wanton acts of sin
They say
And that I'll have to pay
But I need you
Just this way

They call you Jezebel
For what you like to wear
You're morally unwell
They say you'll never care
For me
But what they fail to see
Is that your games
Are the key

Open their eyes to the beauty
Open their hearts to the fun
Open their minds to the idea
That you don't own someone

They call you Jezebel
Whenever men walk by
They say that they can tell
The longing in your eyes
Is real
And how you really feel
But they can't see
Your appeal

Jezebel

    For most men Woman is a representation of sin is the one that leads to temptation, from phisycal to a more abstract one that culminates in serious faults. She is the one that unconsciously percieves everything through desire. Due to her intense sensibility she is unable to be rational and the only way to be percieved (or loved) is by provoking desire. But the last part of the song explains everything: Woman is seen as a sinner only in relation to a man They call you Jezebel whenever man walk bye
    And the intense longing or desire that they feel is actually a strong need for spirituality an appeal to God for true love
