The devil on your shoulder is your only friend
There he sits just to remind you all good things come to an end
And you can fight it with the thoughts you think and the words you say
It doesn’t change anything

You been left to your own devices
And oh yes they’re all vices
And there’s no one comin’ to overturn the tables
Lord knows you’d leave it all behind if you were able

I’ve walked the path you wander now and I know it well
Each step a reminder, each day a hazy hell
God is dead and heaven’s silent, death has lost its sting
It doesn’t change anything

The bottle and the needle reign
Where memories are deafening
And there’s no one comin’ to overturn the tables
Lord knows you’d leave it all behind if you were able

You been left to your own devices
And oh yes they’re all vices
And there’s no one comin’ to overturn the tables
Lord knows you’d leave it all behind if you were able

The devil on your shoulder is your only friend
There he sits just to remind you all good things come to an end
And you can fight it with the thoughts you think and the words you say
It doesn’t change anything
The devil on your shoulder is your only friend
There he sits just to remind you all good things come to an end
And you can fight it with the thoughts you think and the words you say
It doesn’t change anything

It doesn’t change anything
It doesn’t change anything
