lyrics

Harold Holloway

let me tell you a real old story
greatest story ever told
about a little old angel named Lucifer
and his war with the Holy Ghost

Jason Coffey

Why did you make man?
and give him everything for free
but when I ask for some shit for me
you threw me in a fiery sea

Deacon & Jason Coffey

people getting down (that's what I do)
evil all around ('said I'm everywhere)
you are not the same (
they are not to blame (but I'm to blame)

Hook

the devil
the devil & The Deep
he wants to turn the whole world inside out
wake up don't sleep

Deacon

run
tell him run real far
run fast as a German car
you can find him in the teachers and the preachers even German czars
anything beneath these burning stars
run
I’m talkin’ far like mars
but instead we stand around in awe of the rare kind
my daddy said pay the devil no air time
so I’m stop it at eight bars

Deacon & Jason Coffey:

he is prince of the dark
author of sin
father of lies
there is no sympathy for iniquity
the devil he fell from the sky
he's the believer's deceiver
the tempter
the spoiler
he wears a disguise
racism
sexism
classism
the isms my nigga
his plan's to divide

Deacon:

who got you hatin’ on niggaz ‘cause they got them Jays 10 days before you got paid
who got you on the highway in rage callin’ ere’body out they name?
who got you giving up the fight?
them jeans never felt so tight
don’t you know no good?
who make you wish you didn’t know what’s right?
Little Caesar give me one more slice
I’m fucking hungry
now before yall congregate
I’m just trying to conversate about a proper now
it’s a spirit that’ll dominate if you let him in your common space and make you act out
and leave you looking like a common fool
make you forget about the golden rule and what you’re ‘spose to do
but there is hope for you
just use the songs that I wrote for you to kick his holy rollin’ ass out
