"Saved"

[ from the album "20 Vodka Jellies" (1996) ]

Lyrics

I used to be an addict, I had a drug habit
But now I'm saved
I used to sing for the devil, I was a homosexual
But now I'm saved
I was a transvestite, my one delight
Was sticking needles in my arm, staying up all night

I am saved
I am saved
I am saved
Saved!

I was an evil motherfucker, I carried a blade
But now I'm saved
I used to live just to fight and fornicate
But I am saved
I was hanging with the guys they call the Brothers of Islam
I was an honorary member of the Crutchfield gang

I am saved
I am saved
I am saved
Saved!

I am saved
I've been saved

Well they will try and socialise you with the word of the Lord
It signifies precisely zero till you get caught

I am saved
I've been saved
I've been saved
Saved!

Be dissolute like St Augustine
Don't be caught like I have been

I am saved
I am saved
I've been saved
Saved!

Kids do not do what I have done
I am saved
Join a gang and carry a gun
Before you're saved
You can always change your ways
Before you suffer a similar fate

I am saved
I am saved
I've been saved
Saved!

I am saved
Saved
I've been saved
I am saved
I've been saved
I've been saved
I've been saved
Saved
