lyrics

The Devil in Me

There's a voice in me
It speaks its poison
And tries to bury me
But I do my weeping underwater
And though these footsteps fail me
Know they'll never falter

And if this mirror shoots me down
I'll find my shelter in this sound
Can't you hear me?
I'll make my stand
On my own stolen ground
I'll be a rock
That you can't push around
Just let you go
If I could just let you go

You're the devil in me when the night comes cold
and tells me all the things I stole,
Hold me in the dark tonight so I might someday see the light,
You and I will break someday on tides that I have thrown away
and nothing you can do will change my ways

You don't hold the key to the brighter parts of me
So just let me be
I watch you walk around inside me
Waving your flag in the air
Like you've won this wasted land
But I'm still there

You're the devil in me when the night comes cold
and tells me all the things I stole,
Hold me in the dark tonight so I might someday see the light,
You and I will break someday on tides that I have thrown away
and nothing you can do will change my ways
