Blind Melon – Holyman lyrics

I was born on the banks off a hot muddy river

The child of one stupid steamy night

Born to roam beneath the sun

What do you think of me, I'm better left alone

I met a Holyman that said that he knew the way

And he'd like to show me so my life won't go astray

Take my hand child now little boy don't you be afraid

I'll take your soul and walk on water

Holyman, ya don't understand

The cuts on me they run much deeper

Holyman, you righteous man

I've been shown the way a thousand times

Not one a keeper

Older man he said I'll tell you boy

You've planted rotten seeds

And in a land of happiness

They'll grow us evil trees

Guided minds, and eyes that will never see

Holyman I'll tell you

Just what it is that I believe

Holyman I tell you man you gotta

Believe in what you see

Cause it's you that corrupt us man and

Deep throat philosophy

I don't need your spells or the little

Games you try to pull on me

Come to think of it I don't need your religion

Gotta get away

I wish you would understand

Everybody prays

Let me find my own way
