do you really know me

have you ever heard the devil whisper in your ear?
the acrimonious voice instilling guilt and fear

a satanic chauvinist who cherry picks your thoughts 
as you abdicate morality for something you should not 

have you ever felt a choke while you were asleep?
fighting unseen forces that often made you weak

have you ever tried to kill yourself and shove a knife in the belly of your gut?
have you ever heard the murmuring of the  crowd whispering "youre nuts"?

have you ever watched the news and seen death and destruction?
realizing human sacrifices still exists relating child abductions 

the devil plays his part in the abattoir of the human mind 
but within this construct of our reality his powers are undefined 

his deception and his manipulative motive is to abscond from the truth 
but to clarify his powers is to expose him using proof 

he has thwarted love in many ways and conquered the weakest soul
he has recruited wicked men to join his bilious abode 

have you ever walked the potters field and felt the presence of those who relinquished the light?
have you ever heard the breath of disembodied spirits feasting in the night?

have you ever seen a ghostly figure like your eyes was glazed with smoke?
have you ever swallowed pride and felt like you would choke?
have you ever wondered why people pull the trigger and slice their loved ones throats?
its the sacrifice to the devil insted of sacrifices goats!

have you ever blamed a creator for the mistakes that you made?
and turned your back on him for every losing game you played 

knowing the devil is complicated to understand 
because no one knows what its like to be a bad man
