lyrics

I served the devil and the devil delivers
Now I serve the lord
The devil gave me material much but I got bummed and bored
The lord gives me comfort no stuff can provide
The devil make me wealthy but the devil lied

He said I'd be happy if I got my stuff but material gain was never enough
The hole in my soul of selfishness
The me me me and fuck the rest
It left me alone and left me dead
Hurting and suicidal instead

That I didn't care for anyone else
Wasn't too good for my spirit or health
My selfishness it left me alone
Without any friends without a home
But I found a home with some people who felt
That giving to others beat giving to self

That people pleasing was different than
That giving that gives from a heart bigger than
A heart that's been healed, forgiven, renewed
A heart that's protected by love's point of view
A heart that is humble, grateful and full
A heart that is hip to the devil's bull

But the devil provides if you do your will
If you need a house or to pay a bill
So get up and do it all by yourself
Get that great job
Get that hot milf
The devil can help you materially
But god will fill you spiritually
So both play a part in this fallen world
For all of god's children
The boys and the girls
