lyrics

Creeper,
When you see the suffering how do you feel?
Preacher,
If your god’s so phat, then where’s he at when the peoples' pain’s so real?
Quit stuffing this garbage down my throat,
Steadily sinking is the boat you want to commandeer
Twisting people’s pains and fears, tearing down what got us here,
You know your end is drawing near...

C’mon creeper, devil’s keeper, c’mon creeper, now you’ll run away...

Creeper,
I hope to hell your kind won’t be around much longer
Preacher,
I can feel it in my bones as these winds grow stronger
Vested interests and your fate to fear
Twisted wisdom, unsympathetic ear - you know the clock it won’t turn back
Twisting peoples' pains and fears, tearing down what got us here,
I’ll gladly watch you fade to black...

C’mon creeper, devil’s keeper, c’mon creeper, now you’ll run away...

I, I’m so caught up in what will set us free, not who’s been watching me
Better watch my back for that shoulder tap
I, I need to know why they want to hold us down, and watch us drown
Me, oh yes it’s me - got to break free...
