Catholic Boy

 

I was born in a pool

Left in my mother's stand

I spat at that surgeon and his tremblin' hand

When I felt for life, I was the nursery boy

I stole the doctors scalpel and I slit the cord...

 

I was a Catholic boy...

I was redeemed through pain, not through joy...

 

I was two months early, they put me under glass

I screamed and cursed at children when the nurses passed

Was convicted of theft as I slid from the womb

They led me straight from my stroller to a cell in the tombs...

 

I was a Catholic boy...

Redeemed through pain, not through joy...

 

They starved me for weeks, they thought they'd teach me fear

I fed on cell-mates trees, it gave me flyin' ideas

When they cut me loose, the time it served you well

I made allies in Heaven, comrades in Hell

 

I was a Catholic child...

With the grand red...the grand wild...

 

I make angels dance and drop to their knees

When I enter a church the feet of statue bleed

I understand the faith of all my enemies

With that Christ and the God, it's never me...

 

I'm a Catholic boy...

I was redeemed through pain and not through joy...

 

I watched His sweetest psalms stolen by the choir

I dreamed of all his bones hangin' from a wire

I take the contribution, I get absolution

I make the resolution to verify my soul...

 

I'm a Catholic boy...

Redeemed through pain, not through joy...

 

And they can't touch me now, I got every size of the...

They got Baptism, I got Penance

I got Communion, I got extreme...

Man...I got Confirmation...

 

I was a Catholic boy...

Redeemed through pain and not through joy...

And now, I'm a Catholic man...

I put my tongue to the rail whenever I can...
