Literary works play a role in the revealing the truth through their language and symbols behind the works. A lyrical poetry is representation of music, which can convey ideas and emotion to the listeners. In a song there are many expressions that the composer wants to show to the listener.

Two major purposes considered being the main problem in analyzing Creed’s song: (1) what kinds of figurative language are found in Creed lyric?
