In memoriam: Devil & I

At the darkest hour of the night, intoxicated and fueled by sorrow, he roamed through the empty streets of the unknown city he knew little about for he arrived here only a few hours ago.

.

They found his body half submerged on the banks of the river that ran through city. His body covered with cuts and bruises. His face smashed and swollen. He must have fallen down into the river from the bridge nearby, they said. Or perhaps he jumped a few whispered. Hopefully his reckless soul found peace at last…

.

His last wish? No speeches of any kind at his funeral. Just play this song he said. Play this song and smile for I am dead!

.

Undo these chains, my friend

I’ll show you the rage I’ve hidden

Perish the Sacrament

Swallow, but nothing’s forgiven

You and I can’t decide

Which of us was taken for granted

Make amends

Some of us are destined to be outlived

.

Step inside, see the devil in I

Too many times, we’ve let it come to this

Step inside, see the devil in I

You’ll realize I’m not your devil anymore

.

Under the words of men

Something is tempting the father

Where is your will, my friend?

Insatiates never even bother

You and I, wrong or right

Traded a lie for the leverage

In between the lens in light

You’re not what you seem

.

Step inside, see the devil in I

Too many times, we’ve let it come to this

Step inside, see the devil in I

You’ll realize I’m not your devil

I’m not your devil anymore

.

Your station, is abandoned

Fool you cause I know what you’ve done

Sensation, deprivation

You should’ve burned when you turned on everyone

.

So step inside, see the devil in I

Too many times, we’ve let it come to this

Step inside, see the devil in I

I know you’ll find your answers in the end

Step inside, see the devil in I

You’ll realize I’m not your devil, anymore

.

So step inside, step inside

See the devil in I, see the devil in I
