Pity The Devil Tonight

She told him she was leaving him
He turned away
How could he answer that?
What could he say?

He tried to scream, he tried to shout
“Baby, please don’t go!
It’s so cold inside my head
Please don’t go!”

No one could hear his crying
They couldn’t care
Too busy criticizing
His head was bare

He tried to fight the hatred
Growing in his brain
But a sucking, searing evil
Was alive again

“You who live a normal life
You won’t see it through the night
You’ll plead all you want but I won’t hear
The Devil inside me consumes my fear
You will pay for what you did
Did you think I’d just stand there and take that shit?!
You say they should come and lock me up
Well, this madness is yours, so you make it stop!”

Pity the Devil tonight!
He’s just a man

I walked the streets tonight
I saw a man
His eyes were dragging me
To Hell and back

He wanted me to see
The reason why
But the stone wall of our different fates
Made me so blind

I am the blackened symbol
The sacrifice
The same strong hand of his fortune
Rolls my dice

I stood inside his clutches
He’d never been so strong
But tomorrow they’ll say I’m the victim
And that he’s in the wrong

“You who live a normal life
You won’t see it through the night
You’ll plead all you want but I won’t hear
The Devil inside me consumes my fear
You will pay for what you did
Did you think I’d just stand there and take that shit?!
You say they should come and lock me up
Well, this madness is yours, so you make it stop!”

Pity the Devil tonight!
He’s just a man

“You who live a normal life
You won’t see it through the night
You’ll plead all you want but I won’t hear
The Devil inside me consumes my fear
You will pay for what you did
Did you think I’d just stand there and take that shit?!
You say they should come and lock me up
Well, this madness is yours, so you make it stop!”

Pity the Devil tonight!
He’s just a man
