The Unrepentant Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

In the middle of the night
In the middle of lonely night
Stands alone in the pale moonlight
Screams out in defiance

He's got no one to turn to
You could talk 'til you turn blue
He'd just turn his back on you
Ain't no compromising

Because he's totally untamed
No fear of the unnamed
Oh man he'll take the blame
'Cause someone's gotta do it, someone's gotta

He's now out on the highway
He's got the key and the right of way
His tank is full and his toll's paid
Hellbound and determined

He run a dangerous payload
When he comes to the crossroads
Ah, man it's all timed to explode
'Cause you do see the sky burnin'

Because he's totally untamed
No fear of the unnamed
Hey man he'll take the blame
Someone's gotta do it, someone's gotta

Now he's standin' at hell's door
With a bad attitude and a forty-four
The Devil said, "What's up man
Now what you come here for?"

He said, "Man, let's just get to it"
He said, "I always heard that you were the bad one
There's a few places I ain't been, a few things I ain't done
You got your pitchfork and I got my gun
Someone's gotta do it"

'Cause he's totally untamed
And no fear of the unnamed
Hey man he'll take the blame
'Cause someone's gotta do it

'Cause he's totally untamed
And no fear of the unnamed
Stand up like a man and take the whole blame
'Cause someone's gotta do it

Someone's gotta
Somone's gotta
Somone's gotta
Totally untamed
