I was born an only boyAway from palm of waterNever heard of right or wrongI was given words to useBut I knew I was differentThey wanted me to play alongHow much fear can I keepLocked away inside meWill all these wordsDisguise my painWhen all your scriptures fallAnd leave us in the openI will survive and try againHere comes the holy rollerHere comes the book of lifeDon’t come knockin’ round hereЎ®cause you ain’t no friend of mineHere comes the ghost of holyHe comes to twist your mindDon’t come knockin’ round hereЎ®cause you ain’t no friendAin’t no friend of mineWhat is the price that you’ve putOn your own salvationCount the costs for savin’ soulsWhere is the sense in all thisDoor-to-door damantionWhen you’re just left out in the cold
