01 The Devil In Me
The Devil in Me

Something stirring in me since the day I was born
Dancing like a fire and keeping me warm
I look the world in the eye then lie through my teeth
But don’t lay blame, it’s the devil in me

Lord, you know this has been coming for a while
Lately, I waste your time and you cramp my style
But I will give credit where credit is due
I wouldn’t know the devil so well if not for you

So, thank you Lord for the Devil in Me
Your ways are truly a mystery
I once was blind, now I see
I want to thank you Lord for the Devil in Me
I want to thank you Lord for the Devil

I prayed to you Lord for money and fun
Seems like everybody round here but me got some
So now, I make my own luck and damn the rest to hell
If you won’t give me what I want then it’s just as well

Well, you could have made it easy but you made it round
I did one thing wrong you spit me out of town
You take candy from a kid, like I take fruit from a tree
Then you act surprised I’ve got is the Devil in me

I want to thank you Lord for the Devil in Me
Your ways are truly a mystery
I once was blind, now I see
I want to thank you Lord for the Devil in Me
I want to thank you Lord for the Devil

I know he’s slippery and bad as sin
But I never feel guilty or sorry for him
He just do what he do and he be who he be
Then he say, “What the hell else did you expect from me?”

I know he’s mean, he’s downright abusive
But at least he’s here, you’re nothing but allusive
I called and called for you but he came running to me
Thank you lord, for the devil
