Lyrics

THERE ARE SEVEN CREATURES WAITING BY THE ROAD
SEVEN CREATURES WAITING BY THE ROAD
TO OVERPOWER AND THEN DEVOUR MY SOUL

THERE GOES PRIDE AND THERE GOES LUST
USING WORDS LIKE, LOVE AND TRUST
STANDING IN THE BONES AND DUST
OF UNSUSPECTING SOULS
EVERY DAY AND NIGHT I PRAY
THAT HEAVEN TAKE MY LOAD
AND KEEP ME FROM THOSE CREATURES BY THE ROAD

THERE ARE SEVEN CREATURES WAITING BY THE ROAD
SEVEN CREATURES WAITING BY THE ROAD
TO OVERPOWER AND THEN DEVOUR MY SOUL

THERE GOES GLUTTONY AND GREED
DRESSED UP AS MY BASIC NEEDS
WAITING FOR A CHANCE TO FEED
THEIR EVER-HUNGRY SOULS
EVERY DAY AND NIGHT I PRAY
THAT HEAVEN TAKE MY LOAD
AND KEEP ME FROM THOSE CREATURES BY THE ROAD

ANGER EATS WHILE SLOTH?S ASLEEP
AND ENVY TAKES A STROLL
MAKES HIS WAY DOWN EASY-STREET
WHERE LIVES ARE BOUGHT AND SOLD
EVERY DAY AND NIGHT I PRAY
OH HEAVEN TAKE MY LOAD
AND KEEP ME FROM THOSE CREATURES BY THE ROAD

THERE ARE SEVEN CREATURES WAITING BY THE ROAD
SEVEN CREATURES WAITING BY THE ROAD
TO OVERPOWER AND THEN DEVOUR MY SOUL
