about

A Journey to Adulthood through the depths of the devil.

lyrics

I left my home I was only a boy. I took my cloths and my favourite toy,
I walked the streets I walked them all night I got to the country nobody in sight,
I saw a hill the biggest hill I could see I said oh boy you will never beat me,
So I walked, I walked, I walked a bit more, I walked so long my feed they red raw.

I met a man on top of the hill, blue eyes a black heart better still,
He said Willie boy do you know what to do I said its screaming a screaming a screaming in you,
So he took me down to the bottom of the hill where the bodies the spirits the people he killed,
I saw their souls I saw them in his eyes he was the devil the devil the devil in disguise.

So I took his hand and I walked with him down to the valley the valley of sin,
And he showed me things I wish I’d never have seen and he did things they were so obscene,
But he was a strong man a hard man a man of distinction
And I was just a boy, oh I was just a boy.

You’re the devil, you’re the devil the devil the devil.

He took me back to the top of the hill where he said my boy now you’ve had your fill
So I went to the city with my head held high cause I danced with the devil and I did not die,
But the other children they screamed and cried they could smell your taste they could see it in my eye
I was so lonely, so lonely.
I little bit older and a little bit stronger oh I won’t be pretty wont be pretty much longer,
So hold me, touch me.

You’re the devil, you’re the devil the devil the devil the devil.
