Lyrics:

I was born an only boy

Away from palm of water

Never heard of right or wrong

I was given words to use

But I knew I was different

They wanted me to play along

 

How much fear can I keep

Locked away inside me

Will all these words

Disguise my pain

When all your scriptures fail

And leave us in the open

I will survive and try again

 

Here comes the holy roller

Here comes the book of life

Don’t come knockin’ round here

‘Cause you ain’t no friend of mine

Here comes the ghost of holy

He comes to twist your mind

Don’t come knockin’ round here

‘Cause you ain’t no friend

Ain’t no friend of mine

 

What is the price that you’ve put

On your own salvation

Count the costs for savin’ souls

Where is the sense in all this

Door-to-door damantion

When you’re just left out in the cold

 

Here comes the holy roller

Here comes the book of life

Don’t come knockin’ round here

‘Cause you ain’t no friend of mine

Here comes the ghost of holy

He comes to twist your mind

Don’t come knockin’ round here

‘Cause you ain’t no friend

Ain’t no friend

 

Here comes the holy roller

Here comes the book of life

Don’t come knockin’ round here

‘Cause you ain’t no friend of mine

Here comes the ghost of holy

He comes to twist your mind

Don’t come knockin’ round here

‘Cause you ain’t no friend

Ain’t no friend

 

Here comes the holy roller

Here comes the book of life

Don’t come knockin’ round here

‘Cause you ain’t no friend of mine

Here comes the ghost of holy

He comes to twist your mind

Don’t come knockin’ round here

‘Cause you ain’t no friend

Ain’t no friend of mine
