The Devilís Own

© Copyright 2008, Stephen Rawlings

 

Quietly your shifting eyes give way to your deep thoughts inside

(You donít know and I canít tell you why)

But closer still the panic sets; no turning back and no regrets

(You donít know and I canít tell you why)

 

Itís hard to breathe and think and see straight

When the devilís own has looked you in the eye

 

Donít worry now youíre probably wrong; theyíll help you learn where you belong

(They donít know, but they can tell you lies)

 

But you donít know and I canít tell you why

Itís hard to breathe and think and see straight

When the devilís own has looked you in the eye

 

Soon enough theyíre catching on to you not stuck in times long gone

(You donít know and I canít tell you why)

Slipping in towards quick decline theyíll all soon know youíve lost your mind

(They donít know, but they can tell you lies)

 

But you donít know and I canít tell you why

Itís hard to breathe and think and see straight

When the devilís own has looked you in the eye

 

Run away youíre out of time.I hope you know what you will find

(They donít know, but they can tell you lies)

Run away youíre out of time.I hope you know what you will find
