Save My Own (2006)

Written by Achilles Tenderloin

I tried and I tried
to get God on my side,
but he never did like the way I roll.

He knows I get down
Oh, and I stay down
I’m gonna have to save my own.

I grew up in the choir,
singin’ psalms to inspire
God’s lost children and make them feel fine.

I drank blood from a chalice,
in a big, shiny palace,
but I crave somethin’ stronger than wine.

I tried and I tried
to get God on my side,
but he never did like the way I roll.

He knows I get down
Oh, and I stay down
I’m gonna have to save my own.

So, I traded my lyre
for a harp of desire.
My heart is empty, but my glass is half full.

I need brimstone and fire,
for these old men in the mire,
to make my heartbreakin’, hard rock’n’roll.

I tried to get right
and I cried trough the night.
I even lied to get beside that dude.

But, he knows how it is.
Lord, he knows I’m addicted
to that old fashioned, sweet passion fruit.

I tried and I tried
to get God on my side,
but he never did like the way I roll.

He knows I get down
Oh, and I stay down
I’m gonna have to save my own.
