Crucify .....

Every finger in the room is pointing at me
I wanna spit in their faces, then I get afraid of 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 in 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, every day?
I crucify myself and nothing I do is good enough for you
I crucify myself, every day
I crucify myself
My heart is sick of being
I said my heart is sick of being in chains, oh oh oh
Chains, oh oh oh
Got a kick for a dog, begging for love
I gotta have myself a ring 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 in 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, every day?
I crucify myself and nothing I do is good enough for you
I crucify myself, oh every day
I crucify myself
My heart is sick of being
I said my heart is sick of being in chains, oh oh oh
Chains, oh oh oh
Please be
Save me
I cry
Uh-huh, uh-huh
Looking for a savior in 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, every day?
I crucify myself and nothing I do is good enough for you
I crucify myself, oh every day
I crucify myself
And my heart is sick of being
I said my heart is sick of being in chains, oh oh oh
Chains, why do we
Chains
Crucify ourselves
Every day
Ah-ah, ah, ah, ah
Oh, chains
Oh, yeah
Yeah, chains
Ah-ah, ah, ah, ah
Never going back again, oh
Crucify myself again, you know
Never going back again to crucify myself, every day!

[@1207913,Handmaidssnail] Lol - when I told my dad I turned 60, he looked at me in shock and amazement and said "WoW" then the next week when I turned up 1/2 hour late at the nursing home, he was all worried!
[@64578,fun4us2b] awww see ...the worrying never ends ...it's sweet that he still worries about you
