    "practiced are my sins"??! Help

    Pearl Jam sings a song called "just breathe". There is one sentence that I do not understand the meaning: "Practiced are my sins/Never gonna let me win, aw huh". Can you explain me this "practiced are my sins"?
    Thanks in advance!

    I don't know the context, but it sounds to me as if the singer is complaining that temptation is 'never gonna let her win', because she has had toO much practice as a sinner.

    I agree. Also, you might want to avoid studying lyrics from songs if you want to learn English. They don't use proper English often. : (
