lyrics

When you look at me, what colours do you see
Black, blue, busted grey
Rubble at your feet
I was a thousand miles away from our home before I knew
The reason that I left was you

Devil take me under, devil take me high
Cause no saint can save the one with sin on their mind
Now I’m standing at a crossroad off I-65
As the rain pours down in buckets, wiping teardrops from my eye

Every mile that I travel brings me closer to the light
One eye over my shoulder
Taught to seek the fight
And as a long shadow casts out memories of you
Each step brings me closer to the truth

Devil take me under, devil take me high
Cause no saint can save the one with sin in their eye
I guess livin’ as a poor man’s daughter is better than livin’ as a rich man’s lie
And for all your twisted reasons you won’t give up the fight

Oooh

Nothin had prepared me to play the ugly fool, no
I was lost in a game
That I know you hate to lose
As the bitter memories rattle in their cage
I can’t seem to turn the page

Devil take me under, devil take me high
Cause no saint can save the one sin has consumed alive
These wounds must me paid for
Blood for blood for blood
No there ain’t enough mercy in the world
To wash you clean of what you’ve done

Devil take me under, devil take me high
Cause no saint can save the one with sin on their mind
Now I’m standing at a crossroad off I-65
