Sinister Purpose

This song is by Creedence Clearwater Revival and appears on the album Green River (1969).

When the sky is gray
And the moon is hate,
I'll be down to get you.
Roots of earth will shake.

Sinister purpose
Knockin' at your door;
Come and take my hand.

Burn away the goodness,
You and I remain.
Did you see the last war?
Well, here I am again.

I can set you free,
Make you rich and wise.
We can live forever;
Look into my eyes.
