"Simple Creed" as written by Edward Joel Kowalczyk, Patrick Dahlheimer, Chad Alan Gracey, Chad David Taylor and Adrian Nicholas Matthew Thaws....
Born with your back to the god
That spit you out on the riverbed
Angry at who? Me?
You better back up fool
I'll bet you took a gun to school too
But now, nobody's takin' your candy
You just keep on livin' this tragedy

La la la la la la la
To each his own

But, I wait for you to take my hand
'Cause we need each other
We gotta love each other

Yeah

Born with your back to the god
Who picked you up by your puppy scruff
Angry at who? Me?
You better back up fool
And be grateful that the real me's always hiding from you
But now, nobody's takin' your bicycle,
Maybe somebody should take your microphone

La la la la la la la
To each his own
But I wait for you to understand
That we need each other
We gotta love each other
(I wait for you to understand)
That we need each other
(I wait for you to understand)
That we need each other

Someone should take your microphone
Someone leave their life at home
Someone will take your bubblegum
Someone will take your life along
You're always, walking hallways
You're always, walking hallways
Try again, lie again
(Improvised lyrics)

I wait for you to take my
I wait for you to take my hand
'Cause we need each other
You know, We gotta love each other
'Cause we need each other
Yeah, We gotta gotta love each other
We need each other

We've gotta love, gotta love each other

    General CommentThe song is really saying, 'hey, you!, theres a void of love in your life because you keep making the wrong choices'. It's muscially intense because the idea is to make people sit up and take notice

    General CommentI love this song! Particularly, angry at who? me? you better back up fool
    and be grateful that the real me's always hidin' from you
    It all comes down to love - loving one another regardless of what we decide to show each other adn waht we hide b/c we are all apart of the same human race.....it is as simple as that.

    General CommentThis song is about people not loving each other, and trying to make them realise that everyone needs to love each other. It also reminds me of a chick that i love so much, but i cant have

    General CommentI only half-way agree with this song. Like in the first verse. While I obviously don't condone school shootings, there's more to it than someone "taking your candy".

    That's about as stupid as someone saying that the kids who do it are Emo.
