"The Priest" as written by Wesley Louden Borland, William Frederick Durst, Samuel Robert Rivers and Sam Siegler....
It could be the absinthe talking
(I don't think so)
I don't either
I've gotta find a new place
A new place to feed, what could it be?

Stop everything, something is not feeling right
The planets are not all aligned
I know it, I've felt this before
My evil is thirsting for more
I need a new outlet to feed

What can I do?
I've got an idea
I think I'll just become a priest
Deceiving them with my belief
I'll preach about what life is worth
And cover my sins with the church
My demons can run around free
No one will suspect a thing
I'll show them it's okay to lust
A priest is who children can trust
I found a new outlet to feed

Baptized by the unexpected
Terrorized by the imperfections

Something's not right
The planets are not all aligned
I know it, I've felt this before
My evil is thirsting for more
I need a new outlet to feed

What can I do?
I've got an idea
I think I'll just become a priest
Deceiving them with my belief
I'll preach about what life is worth
And cover my sins with the church
My demons can run around free
No one will suspect a thing
I'll show them its okay to lust
A priest is who children can trust
I found a new outlet to feed

Baptized by the unexpected
Terrorized by the imperfections
Baptized by the unexpected
Terrorized by the imperfections

Oh my God, I'm watching TV, but I can't
Oh what's this world coming to
I see priests molesting children
I see terrorists blowing up buildings
I see someone in rage killing Dime Bag on stage
What the fuck is this?
What the fuck is this?
I got a kid, should I send him to Sunday School?
I got a kid, should I send him to Sunday School?
So you can fuck him!?
Oh no, you're not going to fuck him
How bout this?
I don't fucking know who I can trust
In this world and I'm not gonna blow
One time
I'm not that scared

Something is not feeling right
The planets are not all aligned
I know when I felt this before
My evil is thirsting for more
I need a new outlet to feed

Baptized by the unexpected
Terrorized by the imperfections
Baptized by the unexpected
Terrorized by the imperfections

    General CommentThe lyrics are a fucming sham. Notonly is fred Durst lusting after chilfren now, but he trivalises the death of Dimebag that is "at best gauche and at worst a fucking insult". what a fucking terrible band.

    General Commentrazormasticator, he isnt after kids now, he's talking about how fucked up the church is these days and how child molestors get jobs as priests and cover up all their "sins" with the image of being godly

    General CommentI don't want to start a "Limp Bizkit ripped off..." kinda thread because people have done that enough about The Truth. But this song sounds very Deftones to me.

    The lyrics aren't just about priests and children... it's relating religion to terrorism.
