Devil in you

Thought I made a clean get away
But it’s still chasing me to this day
You promised me, that you could change
Your shell the same, but your heart is strange

If you change will I be different too?
Will I be better, shiner, be brand new?
We live in a world full of distrust
Silences and lies are almost a must

How long do you think this will last?
You once were different not so far in the past
You followed me all around to here
Nothing kept you away, not even fear

You admit that you are a lie
The devil in you does not just die
It screams inside you, full of rage
How long before it breaks out its cage?
