Sell My Soul Lyrics

by Midnight Oil

Though I buy, let's begin, I am ready, let's begin
Sell my soul to him
Shed my skin, I just wanna shed my skin
I don't wanna sell my soul to him

Mechanize, city bursts and farmers die, they cry
Sell my soul to him
Sleep face down in a goods train heading South in the rain
I sell my, sell my soul to him

In this world I often think you'd understand me
In these words I often think you'd recognise me
'Cause I just wanna swim with the fish in the sea
And I want faith to heal so that I can be clean

America's great now
If you don't talk back, you hide your face
Crawl in rubble and smile and scorn
At that snail paced creature going up and down the walls

I just want to celebrate
And I'm not going to sell my soul to him
When you look right in
Sell my soul to him, to him

Sell my soul to him, to him
Sell my soul to him
