devil on my shoulder lyrics – billy talent

“devil on my shoulder”

as i get closer, my dreams get farther
i climb that ladder, but you kick it over
thirsty for water, you give me vinegar
when i drink your medicine, it just makes me sicker

i dug a hole so deep
i’m gonna drown in my mistakes
can’t even sell my soul
’cause it ain’t worth sh*t to take

i got the devil on my shoulder (over and over)
and i just can’t sink any lower (lower and lower)
the hounds of h*ll are getting closer (closer and closer)
i got the devil on my shoulder (over and over)

follow the rainbow, my lucky omen
there ain’t no pot of gold, just copper tokens
i found the key to life, the lock was broken
all my accomplishments, are best left unspoken

i dug a hole so deep
i’m gonna drown in my mistakes
can’t even sell my soul
’cause it ain’t worth sh*t to take

i got the devil on my shoulder (over and over)
and i just can’t sink any lower (lower and lower)
the hounds of h*ll are getting closer (closer and closer)
i got the devil on my shoulder (over and over)

my horror story is nearly over
i said i’m sorry, but i was sober
i beg for mercy from my infernal friend
the one that drops the nails into my coffin

i got the devil on my shoulder
i got the devil on my shoulder

i got the devil on my shoulder (over and over)
and i just can’t sink any lower (lower and lower)
they come to take me, take me over (closer and closer)
i got the devil on my shoulder (over and over)
