Verse:
Got a kick for a dog begging for love
I gotta have my sufferings so that I can have my cross
I know a cat named Easter. he says: will you ever learn?
you're just an empty cage girl if you kill the bird.

I've been looking for a savior in these dirty streets.
Looking for a savior beneath these dirty sheets.
I've been raising up my hands, drive another nail in.
Got enough guilt to start my own religion.

(Chorus)

(Bridge1)
Looking for a savior in these dirty streets.
Looking for a savior beneath these dirty sheets.
I've been raising up my hands, drive another nail in.
Where are those angels when you need them?

(Chorus)

Never going back again no
to crucify myself (again) - every day

About this song

According to Songfacts, Amos penned this song after the failure of her synthpop band Y Kant Tori Read. In Crucify, she digs deep inside herself to reveal the discouragement of expectations never met, utilizing various religious symbolisms to expose her hurting psyche.
