lyrics

you know i live on fear
and i am fear itself
now i have your ear
you cant put me back on the shelf

4 five hundred years
i been in the trade
it’s true a few may profit
but everyone gonna pay

i have walked these fields
sowed these fields with blood
now we reap like your father did
when we lie down in the mud

I have met the devil

i went got the dogs
you went and got the rope
to keep your brother down
until he lose all hope

i have met the devil
one, two three
i am him and he is me

we have built my kingdom
built it brick by brick
you ask me how i fooled you
it was such an easy trick

you say now i want to heal
you say devil you’ve had your day
but you have made your deal
and now i’m never gonna go away
now i'm never gonna go away

the fool with his controller
got you figured out
move his little fingers
make everybody jump and shout

my friend comes on the tv
you can only stop and stare
you will not believe me
but that’s that’s you and me up there
that's you and me up there

i have met the devil
one, two three
i am him and he is me
