Catholic School

lyrics

I remember the open coffin
The pain two years of pills couldn't soften
Back to school the next day with a dozen reporters
No mountain of medicine will make the days any shorter

I stayed for as long as I could
The sisters told me g*d did it for the good
Senseless bloodshed blasted doubt through every crack
My faith was shattered; sweep the pieces in a stack

‘Cause I'm never coming back
No, I'm never coming back

Burned on your TV screen is Kevin Bacon
Though it's been a decade, the earth's still shakin'

Can you feel those tremors? Each night, I go for a stroll
Pray the ground will open up and swallow me whole

I stayed for as long as I could
Sisters told me g*d did it for the good
Senseless bloodshed blasted doubt through every crack
My faith was shattered; sweep the pieces in a stack

‘Cause I'm never coming back

But--

I stayed for as long as I could
Sisters told me g*d did it for the good
Senseless bloodshed blasted doubt through every crack
My faith was shattered; sweep the pieces in a stack

‘Cause I'm never coming back
No, I'm never coming back
And they'd never take me back
No, I'm never coming back

Catholic school will fuck you up
As I drank blood from the cup
All my friends were getting high
One by one I watched them die
To tell the truth I don't know why
I never gave it a try
