Overkill - Devil By The Tail Lyrics

Devil By The Tail

Oh to be the fire, I am just a man
Oh to walk the wire, believing that I can
And reach on down the you're throat
To tear it out
Find out what the beating's all about

[Chorus]
Justify my envy
Jealousy to fail
In perfect, deadly, harmony
Hold the devil by the tail
Devil, by the tail

Oh to slay the liar, he speaks for me, a man
Oh to try, conspire, believing that I can
And reach into your heart
To pull it out
Find out what the beating's all about

[Chorus]

Run your devil up the pole
Into my domain
The forgotten drool, like rabid dogs
By any other nmae
They growl, they bark, they gnaw at me
I still hear them wail
Pray to hold what I hold
A devil by the tail
Devil, by the tail
Run your devil, out your soul
By another name
Devil, by the tail
Run your devil, take control
Before we go insane
Devil, devil

Hey mr. Lucifer, do you have my pay
I'm done with wroking here as of today
Hey mr. Savior do you ever seem to fail
And got what I got, a devil by the tail

Devil by the tail, devil by the tail
