lyrics

Come on down
Dance around
You don't don't have to worry
About your feet touching the ground

But if your greedy with the devils brew
He's gonna reach through the earth
Just to get to you

He's gonna drag you down
Smash your face on the ground
And he wants you to scream
But you don't make a sound

Well I cut away the garden
Just the other day
Woke to find the weeds and thorns had come to stay
But they left me a pretty view
One window of the hills and the forest
And skies of blue

Well I tried the doors but the locks were stuck
And those windows were all rusted shut
And I turned those walls upside down
But there was no escape to be found

So I sat with the devil
I looked out at the view
I can see where I should be
But now I cant get to you

Well he looked me in the eyes
And he spoke to me
You had plenty of time to be free
But you wasted
You couldn't take it

But theres plenty of time in eternity
So feel welcome to stay here with me
Or take this one bullet and use it well
You wont go to heaven
But you wont be in hell

So I found that rifle
That was left to me
And I returned that bullet
To where it was meant to be

I said devil you played me well
But I don't believe what what your saying
So fuck off back to hell

And I shot not maim
I shot to kill
Only the devils weapons will do my will
And he fell with a smile into ash and smoke
What he said to me
It was no joke

Well I'm still sittin in the house with the view
And the rats and crows are doing what they do
It could have been a year
Or a century

If I had my time over
That bullet would have been for me
And when my eyes fall on this place
I hear him laughing at my mistakes
He fooled me
Yes he fooled me
