The Creed Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

From the dust of which I came
To dust I return again
From my mother I am torn
With my brothers off the war

We escape before the dawn
Trying to outrun the sun
Take my own life in my hands
Fearing God but never man

Take my ancient hand
Look me in the eye
Looking past the lines
Soon you'll see as I

You are young if you want
You could be old if you try
I can show you how to live
But you can't show me how to

As the sun stalks the sky
I am not afraid to die
My ear upon the ground
For the iron horse's sound

Encircle glowing rocks
One by one each chieftain talks
Tales of yore and bravest deeds
Coveting their warrior creed

Take my ancient hand
Look me in the eye
Looking past the lines
Soon you'll see as I

You are young if you want
You could be old if you try
I can show you how to live
But you can't show me how to

Show me how to die, yeah

Take my ancient hand
Look me in the eye
Looking past the lines
Soon you'll see as I

You are young if you want
You could be old if you try
I can show you how to live
But you can't show me how to

My hands will bridge the distance
Of beginning to the end
The time for learning ceases
It was all wasted and spent

From witch doctor to shaman
Kachina doll to chief
The spirit knows what ails you
You beg for its relief

All that I know, all that I say
My heart beats and my pulse drums
Out tribal rhythms
Pounding through the sky

Pounding through the sky
Pounding through the sky
Pounding through the sky, hey

Mustaine, Dave
