  • You know how us Catholic girls can be
    We make up for so much time a little too late
    I never forgot it, confusing as it was
    No fun with no guilt feelings
    The sinners, the saviors, the lover-less priests
    I'll see you next Sunday

    [Chorus]
    We all had our reasons to be there
    We all had a thing or two to learn
    We all needed something to cling to
    So we did

    I sang Alleluia in the choir
    I confessed my darkest deeds to an envious man
    My brothers they never went blind for what they did
    But I may as well have
    In the name of the Father, the Skeptic and the Son
    I had one more stupid question

    [Chorus]

    What I learned I rejected but I believe again
    I will suffer the consequence of this inquisition
    If I jump in this fountain, will I be forgiven

    [Chorus]

    We all had delusions in our head
    We all had our minds made up for us
    We had to believe in something
    So we did
