Devil's, Demon's and Addiction

Many of us wonder if the Devil does truly exist 
Lurking in the dark night or hiding out in the mist
Well, I believe he does and breaking us is one of his goals
So he releases his demons and they attach to our souls
They whisper dark thoughts into our ears
They push and they pull us right into our fears
They coax us far past where we would usually draw the line
They cloud our judgment telling us everything's fine
They taunt us with temptation, lust and illusion
Some say they're not real and we're just lost in a twisted delusion
But they are quite real please don't think that they're fiction
And they come armed with many forms of  addiction
Addiction is one of the Devil's greatest creations to date
Infect with this and we'll seal our own fate
He will wear down our soul's with this nasty infection
Until we become just another lost soul for his demented collection 
So if you still wonder about the Devil and demons and if their existence is true
Just ask any addict if they exist and they'll tell you they do

    That is such the truth and couldn't have said it any better myself. The devil and demons have took til there is nothing left.
