"Why Dance With The Devil When You Have Me?" as written by and William Roy Francis....
Prescription pills, darvocet, Oxycontin, mesca- line And a whole array of synthetic medicine Crystal glass, Ketamine, heroin, cyanide dream And a whole generation laughs
It’s not the drugs that killed your mom It’s not the blade that raped your brother A whole world is suffering Can’t be the love we lost as children Can’t be the price of a
thousand prostitute graves Nobody loves here everybody hates
I will survive Why are you dancing with the devil When the sun sets down on my heart When the sun sets down I’m a star Why dance with the devil when you have me?
Lysergic acid, psycho active, morphine, coke, sodomy At war with society Self-medication, codeine supply, self-mutilation Sex taught suicide
It’s not the drug that killed my soul Not the pain of losing blood In a ghost town paid symphony Can’t be the love we lost as children Can’t be the price of fucking saving your skin

    Lyric CorrectionThis song is very good, but it was crazy difficult to get these lyrics down. I did my best, but I need some help with the parts that have an ellipsis...


    (Find me some) Drugs, drugs, drugs, drugs
    (Find me some) Drugs, drugs, drugs, drugs

    Prescription pills, darvocet, Oxycontin, mesca-line
    And a whole array of synthetic medicine
    Crystal glass, Ketamine, heroin, cyanide dream
    And a whole generation laughs
    (Hahahahaha)

    It's not the drugs that killed your mom
    It's not the blade that raped your brother
    A whole world is suffering (suffering)
    Can't be the love we lost as children (we lost as children)
    Can't be the price of a thousand prostitute graves (we lost our lives)
    Nobody loves here everybody hates

    I will survive (Why are you dancing with the devil?)
    I will survive (Why are you dancing with the devil?)
    When the sun sets down on my heart (Dance with the devil)
    When the sun sets down I'm a star
    Why dance with the devil, when you have me?

    I feel so alone, in a state of depression, at an all-time low
    Could I stay in deception where nobody would know

    Lysergic acid, psycho active, morphine, coke, sodomy
    At war with society (Charge!)
    Self-medication, codeine supply, self-mutilation
    Sex taught suicide
    It's not the drug that killed my soul
    Not the pain of losing blood
    In a ghost town paid symphony
    Can't be the love we lost as children (we lost as children)
    Can't be the price of fucking saving your skin (we lost our lives)
    Nobody loves here, everybody hates

    I will survive (Why are you dancing with the devil?)
    I will survive (Why are you dancing with the devil?)
    When the sun sets down on my heart (dance with the devil)
    When the sun sets down I'm a star (Why don't you take it out?)
    I will survive (Why are you dancing with the devil?)
    I will survive (Why are you dancing with the devil?)
    When the sun sets down on my heart (Dance with the devil)
    When the sun sets down I'm a star
    Why dance with the devil when you have me? (When you have me corrupt!)

    Mushrooms, crack, my mind is cracked my mind is trapped, my spine is tapped
    A little bit of...
    It feels like I'm on cyanide, methanphedamines
    Yurn churn...
    Heaven, hell, help me please
    Screams, yell...
    Anything can happen, I feel so trappend in
    Nobody loves me, everybody hates
    Suicidal minds...
    Poison in my veins, nobody cares
    If I live, If I die no reason to be here
    ...
    Vicodin...
    I'm going crazy I've got to settle in
    I feel a little hazy, a little haroin
    I close my eyes... begin

    Mushrooms, crack, my mind is cracked my mind is trapped, my spine is tapped
    A little bit of lean
    It feels like I'm on cyanide, methanphedamines
    Yurn churn nightmares dreams
    Heaven, hell, help me please
    Screams, yell yearnin laughing
    Anything can happen, I feel so trappend in
    Nobody loves me, everybody hates
    Suicidal minds stay stepping up the plate
    Poison in my veins, nobody cares
    If I live, If I die no reason to be here
    … so ease the pain
    Vicodin to settle down
    I'm going crazy I've got to settle in
    I feel a little hazy, a little haroin
    I close my eyes never sold it begin



    I used the lyrics from above and added in what i knew. and some corrections
    but im too lazy to fix the spelling errors...
