(devil's intro)

Lord, lord, can't you see
I need your help to set me free

Lord, lord, can't you see
I need your help to set me free

Devil pour me hard and slow
The Devil pour me down down low

So lord lord, can't you see
I need your help to set me free

Once you taste the devil's lips
It's hard to turn to you, my faith

I said once you taste the devil's lips
It's hard to find a better way

I said once you taste the devil's wine
Ain't no [?] better time

So lord lord, can't you see
I need your help to set me free

And it was then she decided to come on in
Hoot, she decided to come on in
And it was then she decided to come on in
So proud when she decided to come on in

And then a HOOT, she decided to come on in
and then a HOOT, she decided to come on in
and then a HOOT, she decided to come on in
Devil, Devil, set me free

HOOT, she decided to come on in
and then a HOOT, she decided to come on in
and then a HOOT, she decided to come on in
Devil, Devil - let me be!!



Walk into this room
All eyes on me now, but I
Do not know the people
Inside

They look straight through me, these eyes
Seeking twice the wisdom that I
Have to give away
Realize, realize what you are

What you've become,
Just as I have
Tell me, are you and I so unalike?

I don't hear you
Just as I am
As we're all afraid if we dance we might die

Mock the world
Live safe,
Say why

Don't you know
When you live life
Then you become what you are



Ooh, the seas unsparing
We're all drifting away
Away from you,
I can only pray for you
Now

Oh, but hoping to god on a high
Is like clinging to straws while
Drowning
Realize, realize what you are

What you've become
Just as I have
Are you and I so unalike

I could never hear you
Just as I am
As we're all afraid if we sing we might die

Fuck the world
From our sacred earth,
Lies our lies

Don't you know,
When you bring love,
Then you become what you are

What you are
Is the beast in the lover's arms

What you are
Is the devil in the nectar of the sweetest kiss
What you are
Is missing a piece

And what you are
Is a puzzle to me

What you've become
Just as I have
Tell me, are you and I so unalike?

Baby, I can't hear you
Just as I am
As we're all afraid if we move we might die

Rock the world
Live through you?
Why?

Don't judge me --
When you give life
Only then you become what you are

Don't trust me,
Trust yourself
No trusting,
Trust yourself

While we've got you packed up in here, why dontcha praaaay down on your knees, motherfucker!!
I'll never let you say "god is on my side"
God is not above you or the rain
God could never stop the changing of the tides

Oh, no no, I could never fall for that
No no no, never ever push me that far
Oh, what'll it take to make you
Realize What You Are???
