Track Name: Satan's Foot On My Neck
Satan's Foot On My Neck
in a world of deceivers can't find no believers.
could it be that there's none of them left?
got dumped in a river when i was delivered.
the doctor he cursed me under his breath
sayin, "boy just be thankful you're breathin.
don't be wishin' for no one to care.
boy you won't ever get even.
there ain't no place for that around here."
there ain't no place for that around here.

why's the devil always got his foot on my neck?

in a world full of others can't find me a brother.
could it be i'm a bastard or worse?
was left here to suffer by my starvin' mother.
my father he hung on the day of my birth.
tell me, "boy just be thankful you're breathin.
don't be wishin' for no one to love.
boy, don't be thinkin' of thievin'
you'll pay for your sins below or above."
you'll pay for your sins below or above.

in a life full of trouble that's never been subtle
you could say i'm the prince of all pain.
'cos if heartache's a kingdom i'd have wealth and dominion
and all of my debts, they would surely be paid.
boy just be thankful you're breathin'
don't be wishin' for no one to care
no, there's no way to get even.
there ain't no place for that around here

why's the devil always got his foot on my neck?

thought i could bargain with the father of lies.
i tried to make my peace on the edge of a knife.
so why am i so surprised to be playing with fire?
got hell to pay the fiddler when the deal expires.
get your foot off my neck.
get your foot of my neck.
get your foot up off my neck.
