The Devil Knows


I always knew that eventually I would wake up alone
In this life I’ve taken many roads but always, I am the highway:
Driving on forever, always leading one foot out the door, anticipating that last kiss.
Some may call me Lucifer, depraved and shallow, selfish in this need to never root.
But the devil knows -oh how he knows- I’ve tried, but I just can’t get it
Outta My System.
