The Devil is back on my back
I can see him at my window
and now he is in my bed
with the woman I love.

His face has changed but I know it's him
I can smell his fear and he can see it in my eyes
and in my heart which is beating me
to my early grave.

I need to get out of this place
because I am a disgrace
to myself and to my girl
who is reaching the end.

The end is still in sight
It's still there
shining away

and the Lord has made this star the brightest star
so that I cannot possibly sleep
and succomb to the black lord's mischief
as he thrashes me while I'm down.

However, tomorrow I'll be back on my feet
stronger than ever
and Lucifer and his demons
will be driven away forever.
