The devil makes me crazy with his cheap, cheap lies - the kind that take me down on a spiral inside. Do I love what I lose, do I lose what I dare? The problem with defeat is that you just don’t care. Oh, and it’s sick how they break; It’s sick how they burn, but that’s how you’re paid letting evil get a turn. Would not tell you what I did not know, but this way or that way everybody’s got to go. [Oh, oh oh] Well, shake it all down, shake it down to little bits: the time you got ugly, the time you called it quits. It’s a dare if you do and it’s a dare if you don’t, but somebody else will, if you won’t. Sing, oh, oh oh! Well, I may not be rich, but I’ll never be poor. My body’s listened well to the story at it’s core. So, I sit right down in the middle of my faith. No time to linger, no time to wait. [Oh, oh, oh]
