Holyman
Lyrics and music by Blind Melon

I was born on the banks of 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 sould and walk on water.

Holyman,
You don't understand.
The cuts on me they run much deeper.
Holyman,
You righteous man,
I've been shown the way a thousand times,
But not one's 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 corrupts 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.

Holyman,
You don't understand.
Them cuts on me they run much deeper.
Holyman,
You righteous man,
I've been shown the way a thousand times,
But not one's a keeper.

Gotta get away.
I wish you would understand.
Everybody prays.
Let me find my own way.

Having a friend who will keep a secret for you is worthless compared to a friend who won't keep a secret from you.
