Blessed are he who are speaks the word
Grateful that we can lead the herd
Dollars signs in the faithful eyes
The anti-saint, sunday disguise
You’re just a faker
No miracle maker
Holy behavior
Wont make you our savior

If we want a martyr
We’ll come and find you
Come and find you
Done before you started
You’re dead in the water
Walk on father out to sea
You’re done before you started
You’re dead in the water

Blessed are he who sees the word
Holiness so well rehearsed
Dollar signs in the faithful eyes
Anti fates on day disguised
You’re just a faker
No miracle maker
Holy behavior
Wont make you our savior

If we want a martyr
We’ll come and find you
Come and find you
Done before you started
You’re dead in the water
Walk on father out to sea
You’re done before you started
You’re dead in the water

The water
The water
The water

Money made messiahs
You’re televised to tell your lies
Not another martyr
You’re dead in the water

If we want a martyr
We’ll come and find you
Come and find you
Done before you started
You’re dead in the water
Walk on father out to sea
You’re done before you started
You’re dead in the water

You’re dead in the water
You’re dead in the water
You’re dead in the water

    General CommentDead in the Water

    Blessed are he who are speaks the word
    Grateful that we can lead the herd
    Dollars signs in the faithful eyes
    The anti fate on day disguise
    You’re just a faker
    No miracle maker
    Holy behavior
    Wont make you our savior

    If we want a martyr
    We’ll come and find you
    Come and find you
    Done before you started
    You’re dead in the water
    Walk on father out to sea
    You’re done before you started
    You’re dead in the water

    Blessed are he who sees the word
    Holiness are well rehearsed
    Dollars in the faithful eyes
    Anti fates on day disguised
    You’re just a faker
    No miracle maker
    Holy behavior
    Wont make you our savior

    If we want a martyr
    We’ll come and find you
    Come and find you
    Done before you started
    You’re dead in the water
    Walk on father out to sea
    You’re done before you started
    You’re dead in the water

    The water
    The water
    The water

    Money made messiahs
    You’re televised to tell yours lies
    Modern of a martyr
    You’re dead in the water

    If we want a martyr
    We’ll come and find you
    Come and find you
    Done before you started
    You’re dead in the water
    Walk on father out to sea
    You’re done before you started
    You’re dead in the water
    You’re dead in the water
    You’re dead in the water
    You’re dead in the water

    General CommentI might have gotten the "Anti Fates on day disguise". but i think its "If we want a martyr" it sounds more like it in the song. This song is also straight forward. It's about the televangelists, preachers and priests who only want to preach the word of God to make money. And he's telling them that they see through his or her charade and even if they are "doing good" in the eyes of their congregation. The dead in the water part, I think he's challenging them to act like Jesus, and walk on water, because they will only drown. That they aren't our messiah and have what's coming to them.

    General Commentits "not another martyr" not "modern of a martyr"

    also it's "anti-saint, sunday disguise" not "anti fates on day disguise"

    its in the lyric booklet.

    thts all i see for corrections at any rate.

    this song is obviously against televangelists that use their shows for money over message

    General CommentThink this song has something to do with the 666?? Like cause who ever you is in this song is pretending to be a messiah or savior. And they are evidently lieing or faking.

    Lyric CorrectionI don't have the booklet, but some here are some things that I can tell by listening to the song (and by referencing a couple rules of grammar):


    Dollars signs > Dollar signs
    (singular)

    Wont make you our savior > Won't make you our savior
    (apostrophe)

    Done before you started > Done before you've started
    (grammar rule, but I'm 95% sure that 'you've' is the word used in the song as well) [also applies to "You're done before you started"]

    Blessed are he who sees the word > Wretched are he who sees the word
    ('Blessed' is used in the very first line,[are he who SPEAKS the word], but the second time is 'Wretched' [are he who SEES the word])

    You’re televised to tell yours lies > You’re televised to tell your lies
    ('yours' should be 'your')

    POSSIBLE corrections (if anyone has the lyrics booklet, feel free to validate/refute any of these)

    Holiness are well rehearsed > Holiness so well rehearsed
    ('are well rehearsed' doesn't really make sense, and, in my opinion, it doesn't even sound like they say it in the song. "so well rehearsed" is what I hear, and it would make more sense,)

    Walk on father out to sea > Walk on farther out to sea
    (It sounds like that to me - especially in the last part of the song. It changes the meaning of the line, but It makes a bit more sense to me)

    Money made messiahs > Money-made messiahs
    (Grammar rule: i.e., "'messiahs' became messiahs for money", not "The money physically created the messiahs)


    Again, I'm not sure about those last ones, but it's worth checking if anyone has the official lyric booklet handy
