They say in order to believe in god,
one must also see the devil
trouble is all I can hear is the
devil licking up my ear,
he's some sort of friend, replacing
the empty faces that always seem to haunt me.
They say to worship god one must be pure
and repent his sins however
I am no more than a lowly sinner with
no time for repentance
before I'm consumed whole,
greed begets shame
and I'm alone again.
They say god is love and
god is life
but how can I know love when all I've been taught
is a lie?
The devils' inside me,
overtaken my mind and at the time
the only thoughts I can see simply
trouble is the devil is deceptively kind
I've lost my mind.
