I woke up this morning our of breath
With death calmly sleeping right on my chest
I just out of bed and said,
"Go away, go away."

I ain't never seen nothing so scary and dark
Pulled myself right out of his claws
But he followed me where light walked with me
Go away, go away

And he said
You ain't got nothing coming to you, child
No, you ain't got nothing coming to you, child
So follow me where the sleepless lie
Oh, follow me into the wild

So I rain in the shower to baptize myself
Figure the devil went follow me there
But what do I know, he's standing right here
Go away, go away

No spiritual healing will hurt him away
Like bee stings, my eyelids turning all gray
Next thing I know, he's holding my hand
Go away, go away

So I rain in the shower to baptize myself
Figure the devil went follow me there
But what do I know, he's standing right here
Go away, go away (x2)
