I was born in a pool, they made my mother stand
And i spat on that surgeon and his trembling hand
When i felt the light i was worse than bored
I stole the doctor's 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 their nurses passed
I was convicted of theft as i slipped from the womb
They led me straight from my mother to a cell in the tombs

I was a catholic boy
I was redeemed through pain
Not through joy

They starved me for weeks, they thought they'd teach me fear
I fed on cell mates' dreams, it gave me fine ideas
When they cut me loose, the time had served me well
I made allies in heaven, i made comrades in hell

I was a catholic child
The blood ran red
The blood ran wild

I make angels dance and drop to their knees
When i enter a church the feet of statues bleed
I understand the fate of all my enemies
Just like christ in the garden of gethsemane

I was a catholic boy
I was redeemed through pain
An not through joy

I watched the sweetest psalm stolen by our choir
I dreamed of martyrs' bones hanging from a wire
I make a contribution, i get absolution
I make a resolution to purify my soul

I'm a catholic boy
Redeemed through pain
Not through joy

And they can't touch me now
I got every sacrament behind me
I got baptism, i got penance
I got communion, i got extreme unction
Man, i've 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
