Recorded at 1992 demo sessions, released for the first time on 'A Time Of Revelation' compilation 1996


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
Donít come knockiní round here
ĎCause you ainít no friend of mine
Here comes the ghost of holy
He comes to twist your mind
Donít come knockiní round here
ĎCause you ainít no friend
Ainít no friend of mine

What is the price that youíve put
On your own salvation
Count the costs for saviní souls
Where is the sense in all this
Door-to-door damantion
When youíre just left out in the cold

Here comes the holy roller
Here comes the book of life
Donít come knockiní round here
ĎCause you ainít no friend of mine
Here comes the ghost of holy
He comes to twist your mind
Donít come knockiní round here
ĎCause you ainít no friend
Ainít no friend

Here comes the holy roller
Here comes the book of life
Donít come knockiní round here
ĎCause you ainít no friend of mine
Here comes the ghost of holy
He comes to twist your mind
Donít come knockiní round here
ĎCause you ainít no friend
Ainít no friend

Here comes the holy roller
Here comes the book of life
Donít come knockiní round here
ĎCause you ainít no friend of mine
Here comes the ghost of holy
He comes to twist your mind
Donít come knockiní round here
ĎCause you ainít no friend
Ainít no friend of mine
