Subject: Lyr Add: WHO'S THAT KNOCKING AT MY DOOR
WHO'S THAT KNOCKING AT MY DOOR
As recorded by The Dreadful Snakes on "Snakes Alive!" (1983)

CHORUS: Who's that knocking at my door?
Have I heard that knock before?
Is it evil trying to get into my room?
Who's that tapping at my window?
Who's calling me to go
To a place that's filled with dark and gloom?

Oh, this life that I'm living,
It seems so unforgiving.
I find trouble everywhere that I go.
I always seek it first,
Just to quench my burning thirst
In waters that are cool as fallen snow. CHORUS

But the waters are oh so deep.
What you sow you must reap.
Now I hear a knocking at my door.
It's evil standing outside.
There's no place to run and hide.
It plucks my soul and presses me to the floor. CHORUS

Oh, I've been down that pathway,
It always leads the wrong way,
But this time I don't think I'll be back.
Feels like a freight train pulling me,
There's a dark tunnel ahead I see.
This train's going down a one-way track. CHORUS
