lyrics

PUT THAT LIGHT ON

VERSE 1
SAW A DEVIL STARING BACK AT ME,
COMBING MY HAIR
FLASH OF DARKNESS STARTED SCARING ME
DEVIL STILL THERE
I WAS BORN TO LISTEN UP
TO DO WHAT I WAS TOLD
GOD KNOWS HOW THAT DEVIL GOT IN
HOW IT GREW SO BOLD
CHORUS
PUT THAT LIGHT ON IN HERE
PUT THAT LIGHT ON AMEN
PUT THAT LIGHT ON IN HERE
GETTING BLOODY AGAIN / [GOD, PLEASE / GOT TO] MAKE IT END
VERSE 2
DREW THE RAZOR TO THE SOAP ON MY FACE
FREEZING OVER INSIDE
THAT DEVIL HAD FOUND ITS PLACE
COULD THAT DEVIL BE KIND?
LIKED TO THINK I KNEW A THING OR TWO
REALLY ALWAYS TOWED THE LINE
IF THIS IS WHAT FREEDOM IS
DEVIL’S MADE ME BLIND.
CHORUS
VERSE 3
USED TO PRAY WHEN I WAS YOUNG
SAY ‘OUR FATHER’ EVERY NIGHT
LAYING BETS ON RED OR GREEN
AT EVERY TRAFFIC LIGHT
NOW I CAN’T FIND A HANDLE ON THAT DOOR
REALLY NO WAY OUT
THAT DEVIL IS RIGHT BEHIND
CUT YOUR THROAT AS YOU SHOUT
CHORUS
OUTRO
SAW A DEVIL STARING BACK AT ME,
COMBING MY HAIR
