The Devil's Gonna Keep Me lyrics

The fruit that's plot from the bitter tree's rotten, oh
You can find that seed so deep in me
As a child I was taught to fear if it ever grows
So I get on my knees with the daily please

Swallow me down and your doubt will surely burn
These are the lessons I was made to learn
As I age it gets harder to resist its call
I tread lightly for it if I ever fall
THE DEVIL'S GONNA KEEP ME

A new love's fascination burns straight through my corpse
You send shivers when you touch my skin
I don't have the will to fight you anymore
So I take a bite 'cause you've given me

Hold me high in your arms a sweet embrace
We breathe harder, faster, we make pain
As I lay tangled up with you we stay up close
I hear a whisper as the silence stops
THE DEVIL'S GONNA KEEP ME

Let's stay hands, don't never wash clean, wash clean
I try desperately but the stain stays here,
The food has proven, a grown I can't bare his weight
So I rip the judgment I await
Bury me 6 feet underground along the dead
Nothing can stop my faith that lies ahead
The time has come to read the life I leave behind
In the end my soul is reassigned
THE DEVIL'S GONNA KEEP ME
