"Redeemer" is a track featured on the Queen of the Damned soundtrack, originally written and performed by Jonathan Davis in 2002. While Davis' version appeared in the movie, contractual limitations restricted his version of the song (and all other original compositions) from appearing on the film's soundtrack, and so he enlisted the help of friends of consistently popular bands to record their own vocal dubs; Manson being one of them. Limp Bizkit's Sam Rivers performs bass on the song.

Lyrics[edit]

    The hunger inside, given to me
    Makes me what I am
    Always it is calling me
    For the blood of man
    
    They say I cannot be this
    I am jaded, hiding from the day
    I can't bear, I cannot
    Tame the hunger in me
    Oh, I say I did it
    Always searching,
    You can't fuck with fate
    So instead you'll taste my pain
    
    The hunger inside, given to me
    Makes me feel alive
    Always out, stalking prey,
    In the dark I hide
    Feeling, falling, hating
    Feel like I am fading,
    Hating life
    
    They say I cannot be this
    I am jaded, hiding from the day
    I can't bear, I cannot
    tame the hunger in me
    Oh, I say I did it
    Always searching,
    You can't fuck with fate
    So instead you'll taste my pain
    
    You say your life I'm taking,
    Always bothering me
    I can't take this anymore
    I'm failing, always smothering me
    You look down on me,
    Ain't what you see
    Take this gift from me
    You will soon feed from me
    
    Nothing seems exciting,
    Always the same hiding, hiding
    It's haunting me. It's haunting me. It's haunting me.
    It's haunting me. It's haunting me.
