desciples of the lie lyrics – iced earth

you abuse and you victimize
but you’re dignified, so you justify
it’s in your eyes where deception lies
so you criticize with cruel eyes
father in black, black as sin
pure hypocrisy to no end
condemnning me and my fellow man
i live my life among the d*mned

chorus:
i’ve gotta do as you say, not as you do
you’re a man of the cloth, i’m comin’ for you
you say you can save me, cleanse me of my sin
a holy predator, the wolf in sheepskin
see the pain in my eyes
disciples of the lie

breeding fear in your twisted smile
pedophile, in denial
i taste revenge when i think of you
a life of h*ll you put me through
when i find you i’ll take you out
no remorse, you’re going down
you see satisfaction in my eyes
i vindicate, now you die

i’ve gotta do as you say, not as you do
you’re a man of the cloth, and i’m comin’ for you
you say you can save me, cleanse me of my sin
a holy predator, the wolf in sheepskin
see the hatred in my eyes
disciples of the lie

the blackness inside overwhelms me
the pain engulfs and turns to rage in me
trapped so deep in my mental h*ll
release the demons, set me free

i’ve gotta do as you say, not as you do
you’re a man of the cloth, and i’m comin’ for you
you say you can save me, cleanse me of my sin
a holy predator, the wolf in sheepskin
i’ve gotta do as you say, not as you do
you’re a man of the cloth, i’m comin’ straight for you
you say you can save me, cleanse me of my sin
a f*cking predator, the wolf in sheepskin

i want to see you die

disciples of the lie
