I've got books that say the good man's golden
So many men have drowned in evil, and left Lucifer standing tall
Lock and bolt the doors, can't let the devil use you anymore
You got to listen all you mugs and reivers, if you do any wrong
You can't be a make-believer, 'cause soon you're gonna pay the price,
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

Have you seen it in his eyes in the sunset,
Has he asked if you're alone if what he sees is all you own,
Satan leave me, leave me lonely, leave us alone
I've got books that say the good man's golden
Take a look at what the future's holdin',
Life is a game, and the stakes will remain the same.
