There was a bad boy in the school yard
He waited on you every day
Seemed like every time you turned around
Well, he was standin' in your way

Well, he broke your glasses, the girls all laughed
As he pushed you to the floor
But then you stood up one day knowin'
You couldn't stand it anymore

And your gentle hand was finally clenched in rage
And you were face to face

Face to face with the devil that you've been dreadin'
Eye to eye, finally has arrived
But bad as it was, well, now brother wasn't it better?
Dealin' with him face to face

Your date showed up with flowers
And you thought your prayers had come
But with every passing hour
You watched it come undone

Then the night exploded and you begged him no
But he forever changed your life
And now he waits a judge and jury
Thinkin' you'll break down inside

And with a finger you can put his fists away
And you're face to face

Face to face with the devil that you've been dreadin'
Eye to eye, finally has arrived
But bad as it was, well, now sister wasn't it better?
Dealin' with him face to face

'Cause it'll never go away
Until the fear that you are runnin' from
Is finally embraced

Drivin' by the grave yard on a wicked winter's eve
And you're wonderin' why a man of faith is whistlin' nervously
Then you stop the car and you hold your heart
'Cause you finally realize

Hell, the devil ain't in the darkness
He's rattlin' 'round inside
And with folded hands you truly start to pray
And you're face to face

Face to face with the devil that you've been dreadin'
Eye to eye, finally has arrived
But bad as it was, well, now brother wasn't it better?
Dealin' with him face to face

'Cause it'll never go away
Until the fear that you are runnin' from
Is finally embraced face to face

Face to face
