"Saturday Saviour" as written by and Ken/edwards Andrews....
I'm never gonna say the words
That you want
I'm never gonna feel the shame
Like you do
I'm never gonna stretch my shape
To be with you
I only need you for a day
'Cause I only want to be your

Saturday savior
I can be that
Saturday savior
I will be your
Saturday savior
I can be that impostor in your bed
Wake him up please

I'm never gonna make you feel
That you're satisfied
I'm never gonna feel your pain
Like you wish I would
I'm never gonna open up
More than this
I just want to be your
I just want to be your

I'm never gonna break apart
Quite like you
I'm never gonna long for life
The way you do
I'm never gonna push you out
'Cause your not in
This will only take a while
'Cause I only want to be your
Saturday savior

    General CommentIt seems like it's denial. He's denying that he's addicted to drugs, most likely heroin. He's saying that it's not a part of him and he's pushing it away, but really, he's truly addicted.

    General Commenti feel like this is definitely about not wanting a relationship, and he's being a jerk about it. he doesn't need the girl, he doesn't want her any more than for her body (maybe he just plain doesn't want her any more).

    General Commentthis song, i think, is about a fuck buddy. he doesnt want a relationship, he just wants to have fun for a day, while the other may think he does.

    General Commentthis song is not about a "fuck buddy"...its talking about a relationship yes, but its more complicated than that. the "narrator" is saying how he isnt good for the person he's with, he cant be who they need, he cant see things the way they can and he cant love like they can. he's basicly saying he isnt perfect, but the other person maybe precieves him as so. its all about accepting people for who they are. at least thats my opinion.

    General CommentI sort of agree with the above comment. Theres a guy or a girl, I guess, and he just isn't what his partner percieves him to be.

    He probably has the ability to change, just to be a better self, but he doesn't want to/doesn't think it will help/doesn't think he could do it.

    "I'm never gonna long for life,
    Quite like you do."

    General CommentThis song appears written about a relationship, or a fuck buddy, but the whole album is a concept album pertaining to drug addiction, I think this song is more along the lines of a heroine addiction, being his "saturday savior". What appears as though he is talking to another person can also be interpreted as a conversation with the drug. But it could go either way, that is just how I see it. Kind of like Stinkfist by Tool. The lyrics seem to imply fisting at first glance, but upon further interpretation the song appears about drug addiction.

    General Commentits funny how most failure songs seem like love songs at face value, but usually have a darker, morbid feel to it. except pro-catastrophe. that one's pretty upfront.

    General CommentI think it's along the lines of what the second person said, only it's a little bit different.

    Sounds to me like breakup sex. The narrator/singer/whatever is talking about having sex with someone who's just come out of a relationship. The person who's gotten out of the relationship feels shit, wants sex, and he's the person she's gone to. She seems to be wishing that he's her old partner/pretending he's her old partner. He seems to know this, and is kind of taking advantage of that.

    "I'm never gonna say the words that you want me to" probably means the girl he's with (who thinks he's her old partner) is kind of hoping he/her old partner will say I love you, but of course, he's not, and won't.
    "I only wanna be your Saturday Saviour" he knows this, but doesn't really care, he wants to have sex. Blatant? Perhaps.
    "Impostor in your bed" refers to him sleeping with her, only she wants him to be somebody else (her former partner) thus him being the impostor.
    "I'm never gonna make you feel that you're satisfied" He's not her partner, so she's not gonna be satisfied. Or at least not for long.
    "I'm never gonna open up more than this" Well why should he? He's just the breakup sex person, and doesn't need to open up. They're not in a relationship.

    Yeah...that's just my interpretation of it anyway.
