  • You fault my pride
    Don't ever need to apologize
    As your lips unfold
    Shakin' purple from the cold

    You better learn to crawl
    You better learn to crawl
    Before I walk away
    Before I walk away

    You broke my mouth
    The bloody bits are spitting out
    Is your grave unscathed
    The worm is counting down the days

    He wants to see you crawl
    He wants to see you crawl
    Before I walk away
    Before I walk away

    The reds and the whites and abused
    The crucified USA
    As their hypocrisy unfolds
    Oh hell is truly on its way

    As the rat, and the fly
    They're searching for an alibi
    As we await the wrath
    They never went to Sunday Mass

    They want to see us crawl
    They want to see us crawl
    Before they walk away
    Before they walk away

    The reds and the whites and abused
    The crucified USA
    As their hypocrisy unfolds
    Oh hell is truly on its way Writer/s: CALEB FOLLOWILL, JARED FOLLOWILL, MATTHEW FOLLOWILL, NATHAN FOLLOWILL
