lyrics

There’s a snake coiled round my head
Whispering lies into my ear again
His voice sounds as holy as honey and wine
But his words fill my heart up with sickness and dread
And if I listen to him again
Say goodbye to my soul
Cause he’s the devil he is
Come calling to settle his score

He creeps through my dreams
His words send me reeling
His voice sounds as holy as honey and wine
(Appears in the gloam and rattles my bones)
When all of my sins flash in front of his eyes
There ain’t never no hiding away
And as much as I pray
For some change in the weather
Old Nick’ll be standing right near me
And leering each time that my shame has got me…

But you don’t see me running it’s way either, now do you?
Peel all the illusion away from your eyes
And my eyes too
We’ll find that devil has taken his place
And we’ll give him his due
And if I listen to him again
Say goodbye to my soul
Cause he’s the devil he is
Come calling to settle his score

He creeps through my dreams
His words send me reeling
His voice sounds as holy as honey and wine
(Appears in the gloam and rattles my bones)
When all of my sins flash in front of his eyes
There ain’t never no hiding away
And as much as I pray for some change in the weather
Old Nick’ll be standing right near me
And leering each time that my shame has got me…

He creeps through my dreams
His words send me reeling
His voice sounds as holy as honey and wine
(Appears in the gloam and rattles my bones)
When all of my sins flash in front of his eyes
There ain’t never no hiding away
And as much as I pray for some change in the weather
Old Nick’ll be standing right near me
And leering each time that my shame has got me tethered
