The Devil Game Lyrics

by Kansas

I've got books that say the good man's golden
And more that say the bad will fall
So many men have drowned in evil
And left Lucifer standing tall

Don't take the devil's dare
Don't gamble when the game ain't fair
Lock and bolt the doors
Can't let the devil use you anymore

You got to listen all you mugs and revers
If you do any wrong you make it right
You can't be a make-believer
'Cause soon you're gonna pay the price

Lying, hat and pain
All part of the devil game
Got his foot inside the door
But you can't let him use you anymore

Take, he will take, he will take, give him nothing he'll take
He will take, he will take, he will give nothing but he'll take
He will take, he will take, give him nothing he'll take
He will take, he will take, he will give nothing but he'll take

Pray, for devils have no reason
Satan waits to curse your ways
Have you seen it in his eyes in the sunset
Have you wondered if he's laughing when you play

Has he asked if you're alone if what he sees is all you own
Has he offered you happiness, money, or much better lays
Satan leave me, leave me lonely
Satan leave me, leave us alone

Satan leave me, leave me lonely

I've got books that say the good man's golden
And more that say the bad will fall
Take a look at what the future's holdin'
Won't be yours if you don't heed this call

Life is a game
And the stakes will remain the same
Now you've gotta choose
Is the devil gonna win or lose again
