    I copied Dedicated. This was my initial entry for the lyrics competition, but then my muse decided to get up off her lazy arse and start making some music.

    ----------


    The Road To The Devil




    And I try my best to hide behind
    A wall with furious, blank eyes
    But you look so deep and see so well
    What I in vain attempt to hide

    And to my shock you join me
    In drinking the night away
    But, unlike me, stay one step ahead
    And don’t stagger through the day

    You tell me to stop
    And I won’t
    You tell me to drop
    And I won’t
    But if you tell me to try
    I’ll break down and cry
    I’ll do what you say don’t

    One taste of my confidante Jack D
    And I’m all set to go
    You tell me that he’s destroying me
    You don’t understand, I already know

    I’m not on the path to redemption
    I cut across the field of truth
    I don’t have an angel
    No one’s going to save me
    From doing what you say don’t

    The road to the Devil
    Is tired, but steady
    And the pebbles so sharp that they hurt

    You say you can’t breathe
    For the smoke that’s surrounding me
    Is choking your innocent lungs
    So I offer you a cig
    Just a small one, be quick
    But you refuse
    You think it is wrong

    So define to me
    What is this ‘wrong’
    Is it a built-in sense that you have?
    I may, at one time
    Have known the wrong from the right
    But now, that sixth sense is gone

    So I cave, once in a while
    What’s the problem with one little fix

    It’s not as if I live my life stoned
    I don’t overdose nightly
    Don’t inject to be mighty
    So I can beat on the young and the old

    At least I don’t meet in dark corners
    With the dealer that lives down the street
    I’m not the shadow that follows your footsteps
    Who jumps you when you try and rest your feet
    I’m not the face you see in your nightmares
    I’m not the scream that echoes in your dreams
    I’m not the little voice telling you to commit sins
    I’m not the reason you are afraid to sleep

    I’m not on the path to redemption
    I cut across the field of truth
    I can’t honestly say I have a spirit
    That is telling me what to do
    I know no one is going to save me
    I see that you are trying so hard
    But before I go, I want you to know
    That I love you with all of my heart

    You tell me to stop
    And I won’t
    You tell me to drop
    And I won’t
    But if you tell me to try
    I’ll break down and cry
    I’ll do what you say don’t

    The road to the Devil is withered and old
    And I don’t know how long I can take it
    The ground is so hot, it burns your skin
    And I don’t know how long I can fake it
