song by Elvis Costello & The Roots
Refuse to be Saved lyrics

Yeah, if you choose to let everybody free
What you gonna do about me
Oh, rather be cheated like some ungrateful clown
Rather go back in the suite underground
I can give it time by the color of my skin
And I know my neighbor ‘cause he's the one
Yeah, he's the one who always turns me in
I'm running towards the tunnels in the middle of the night
Thinking up every last object in sight
Handbags, toupees, lost eggs and fingernails
The black margarita of all your fears
The dresses, the office, no salvation or regrets
No cool and no pets
No cigarettes
Just nonstop discothèques
And the sex that lets

There's no name, there's NO NAME
There's no name, there's NO NAME
There's no name, there's NO NAME
For the pain I will cause you again and again
For the pain I will cause you again and again

Liberation faucets make moves of their own
Playing red doors, records and pretend to be stoned
Tryna have a broadcast that was enough for rise
Incidental for a revolution televised
With one head for business, another for good looks
Until they started arriving with their rubber aprons and their brooches hooks

There's no name, there's NO NAME
There's no name, there's NO NAME
There's no name, there's NO NAME
For the pain I will cause you again and again
For the pain I will cause you again and again

Yeah, hunt till he's down, yeah, our liberties lied
The handshake, double talk and procession of the mighty
But you and the tv crew coming after them
The limousine, I'm seeing stars and the brotherhood anthem
The father dictated, wasn't backed up, but they hated
They mopped out all the stubborn ones who just refused to be saved

Refuse to be saved, I refuse to be saved
I REFUSE TO BE SAVED
I refuse to be saved, I refuse to be saved
I REFUSE TO BE SAVED
I refuse to be saved, I refuse to be saved
I REFUSE TO BE SAVED
I refuse to be saved, I refuse to be saved
I REFUSE TO BE SAVED
