about

The narrator tells a story of revenge from the point of view of an abused child who is now an adult. The predator was a priest. The revenge is not as sweet as it is dramatic...."you think that I'm alright (now)" "no i'm not alright"......expresses the long term trauma, despite the elimination of the perpetrator.

lyrics

I LEFT HIS BODY IN THE STREET
SOMEWHERE IN MEXICO
I SHOT HIM 14 TIMES
CAUSE THAT'S ABOUT HOW OLD I WAS
WHEN HE GAVE ME ALL HIS LOVE
YES, HE GAVE ME ALL HIS LOVE
YEAH, THAT'S THE ONE WHO DID IT
THAT'S THE ONE WHO DID IT

(THAT'S THE ONE WHO DID IT, NO POLICE NO FORGIVING)
(THAT'S THE ONE WHO DID IT, NO POLICE NO FORGIVING)

WELL, HE TOOK ME FOR A RIDE
DOWN SOME DESERTED STREET
HE LOOKED DIFFERENT THAT NIGHT
DIDN'T LOOK LIKE NO PRIEST
I SHOT HIM 14 TIMES
I LEFT HIS BODY IN THE STREET
YOU THINK THAT I'M ALRIGHT?
NO, I'M NOT ALRIGHT
YEAH, THAT'S THE ONE WHO DID IT
STILL I'M NOT ALRIGHT
THAT'S THE ONE WHO DID IT
NO, I'M NOT ALRIGHT
