Seven Souls (for the devil)


(Intro)

Seven souls for the devil

If he gets his fill

Seven souls for the devil

And lord knows he will


Hey I'm not greedy, I'm just bad

I'm not looking for anything except the things I've always had

If you keep playing my game I'm warning you, you'll go from sane to mad

I'm not greedy, my friend, I'm just bad.


If you gamble with me, son, you'll have to pay

If you don't have the money, you'll have to find some other way

You aint got much time until your soul in mine so I suggest you start today

If you gamble with me, son, you're gonna have to pay


So light your candles in the dark

Don't meddle in the things that you don't understand

'cause when the darkness turns to dawn

You better know at least seven souls that deserve to be damned

(instrumental)


Yeah, you probably think you got me beat

You think you've found a way to make the other side bleed

You should know I got a special place in hell for those who cheat

But, ha ha…you probably think you got me beat


(Bridge)

Now you've been sharpening your needles

And Johnny's been rosining his bow

Lucy's been playing with the fire

But she'll burn just as surely down below.

And we all know that Susie's got her secrets

But she isn't telling them to you

Make no mistake, I know just how to make her

Break your heart in two

(instrumental)


So light your candles in the dark

Don't meddle in the things that you don't understand

'cause when the darkness turns to dawn

You better know at least seven souls that deserve to be damned
