The Devil

The Devil can't take it if you give it away
You cannot keep it if he asks you to stay.
So be wise in your choosing of this I am sure
Because once you say yes, you cannot return.

From witches 2 wizards you'll meet them all
The angry, the wicked, from big to the small
They will tell you a story from all it's the same
Word by strong word they call him by name
They say he had started like all beings did
Every cell full of peace, no darkness within
From boy until man he grew in such site
Happy and joyful no vigorless spite

But there was a day when everything changed
It came like the wind, it then had no name
It tore through his head and twisted his gut
It pulsed through his veins and he seethed with disgust
He screamed and he yelled while his body turned red
He grew a long tail and horns on his head
His nails grew longer, his teeth turned to fangs
Ever wondering why this sin had no name

And overnight this man turned to beast
Screaming the name of immortal defeat
The question remains what sin turned him bad?
When I got there I asked him and this made him mad
"For so many years I have never been asked, but you have the gall to bring up my past?"
I want to know what made him that way
So maybe some day, man wouldn't pay
"I'll give you the answer he says with a smile
For a small price, nothing you require.
Your soul for a word, the word that doomed me."

So the contract was sealed and signed with my blood
He whispered the word then took me above
"Live out your life, I'll see you soon. But remember the contract from me with you.
If you tell a soul that contract is breached, I will take your soul even living in peace."

So it came like the wind, it then had no name, it aches in my head and I'm seething in pain.

There is only one question that you have to know
Is the answer to you worth only your soul?
