"Saved By Hell" as written by and Erik Hans/farm Ohlsson....
Trouble down on my own street
Domestic violence on repeat
Smashed up doors and yelling again
Some say you are insane
But I don't think so I love you
When you are smiling I am too
The only troubles I have are yours
Please just make them end
Until they find you something that cures
I hide away at friends

I was saved by the bell
Or rather saved by hell
Because it didn't kill me
No it rather drilled me
To be doing well

My friends look forward to Friday night
While I am anxious
For the weekend fights
In a small apartment
There's nowhere to run
When chaos has begun
I hold my ears to dull the noise
But I can still hear your loud voice
I hide under my bed 'til it's gone
Why can't you get along?

I was saved by the bell
Or rather saved by hell
Because it didn't kill me
No it rather drilled me
To be doing well

I was saved by hell
And now I'm doing well
It didn't kill me then
It will not kill me now.

    General CommentThis song sounds like he is witnessing his parents fighting constantly as a young scared boy, and he can't escape it and the only thing he can do is learn from it and never do what his parents have done to him. He tried to run to friends houses but it never fully lasts because eventually he'll have to go back to the endless fighting in his household. But he constantly says "you" so maybe he is referring to his father or mother alone doing acts of "domestic violence". So the lyric, "saved by hell" basically means he has learned from his experience with his parents fighting, and will never fight in front of his kids, etc.
