'Crucify'

Every finger in the room is pointing at me

I wanna spit in their faces

Then I get afraid what that could bring

I got a bowling ball in my stomach

I got a desert in my mouth

Figures that my courage would choose to sell out now

 

I've been looking for a savior beneath these dirty streets

Looking for a savior beneath these dirty sheets

I've been raising up my hands

Drive another nail in

Just what God needs one more victim

 

Why do we crucify ourselves

Everyday I crucify myself

Nothing I do is good enough for you

I crucify myself

Everyday I crucify myself

And my heart is sick of being in chains

 

Got a kick for a dog beggin' for love

I gotta have my suffering

So that I can have my cross

I know a cat named Easter

He says will you ever learn

You're just an empty cage girl, if you kill the bird

 

I've been looking for a savior beneath these dirty streets

Looking for a savior beneath these dirty sheets

I've been raising up my hands

Drive another nail in

Got enough guilt to start my own religion

 

Why do we crucify ourselves

Everyday I crucify myself

Nothing I do is good enough for you

I crucify myself

Everyday I crucify myself

And my heart is sick of being in chains

 

Please be, save me, I cry

 

I've been looking for a savior beneath these dirty streets

Looking for a savior beneath these dirty sheets

I've been raising up my hands

Drive another nail in

Where are those angels when you need them

 

Why do we crucify ourselves

Everyday I crucify myself

Nothing I do is good enough for you

Crucify myself

Everyday I crucify myself

And my heart is sick of being in chains

 

Never going back again

Crucify myself again

You know never going back again to crucify myself everyday...
