  • Your messiah was never mine
    Your messiah was never mine
    Your messiah was never mine
    Your messiah was never mine
    Your messiah was never mine
    Your messiah was never mine
    Your messiah was never mine
    Your messiah was never mine
    Your messiah was never mine
    Your messiah was never mine
    Hypocrites

    Weeping rose of Jeremiah
    Drops of blood drip off your petals
    Representing all our tears
    In a ring of burning metal
    How you gonna be, what you gonna say, it
    Doesn't bother me, who you gonna pay?

    Sorcerers and sadists come
    To define the what and why
    People travel 'cross this earth
    Over water, land, and sky
    How you gonna be, what you gonna say, it
    Doesn't bother me, who you gonna pay?

    Pay the ferryman, pay the fucking driver
    Pay the preachers and pay the fucking liars
    Pay the bitches, they're charging all their dates, stand by
    I'm not gonna pay, it's already mine

    Hypocrites, I'm gonna do it blind
    Hypocrites, I'm gonna do it blind
    Hypocrites, I'm gonna do it blind
    Hypocrites (your messiah was never mine)

    Weeping rose of Jeremiah
    Purity unlike no other
    Offers hope to those who need it
    Don't forget care to the brother
    How you gonna be, what you gonna say, it
    Doesn't bother me, who you gonna pay?

    Little old lady at home
    Writing out a check to send
    It's all the money that she owns
    She believes the world might end
    How you gonna be, what you gonna say, it
    Doesn't bother me, who you gonna pay?

    Pay the ferryman, pay the fucking driver
    Pay the preachers and pay the fucking liars
    Pay the bitches, they're charging all their dates, stand by
    I'm not gonna pay, it's already mine

    Hypocrites, I'm gonna do it blind
    Hypocrites, I'm gonna do it blind
    Hypocrites, I'm gonna do it blind
    Hypocrites (your messiah was never mine)

    Hypocrites

    Pay the ferryman, pay the fucking driver
    Pay the preachers and pay the fucking liars
    Pay the bitches, they're charging all their dates, stand by
    I'm not gonna pay, it's already mine

    Hypocrites, I'm gonna do it blind
    Hypocrites, I'm gonna do it blind
    Hypocrites, I'm gonna do it blind
    Hypocrites
