Devil On Your Back

The one who soothes your ego when you’re not feeling yourself
Is tugging on your conscience when you’re feeling someone else
You may say that she’s beneath you when you’re feeling ten feet tall
But the one you treat like dirt is there to catch you when you fall

There’s a road that leads to heaven and a road that leads to hell
And the road that leads between them is a road you know so well
If you can’t walk the straight and narrow, if you stray from side to side
Let temptation be your mistress, salvation be your bride

Is it a blessing or a burden?
Let your conscience be your guide
When there’s a devil on your back but an angel by your side

Boys who seek the worldliness of manhood
Men who seek the innocence of youth
Boys who prefer boys but choose to live a life of lies
Somebody elses blisters in somebody elses shoes

If hunger makes you feast so much that feasting makes you fast
And every cigarette you smoke you swear will be your last
If your blessings are a burden, if you pray for peace of mind
Let your angels walk before you, let the devil drag behind

Is it a blessing or a burden?
Let your conscience decide,
When there’s a devil on your back but an angel by your side
