Lyrics
I needed time to think things over
To heal my soul and ease the pain
And through a glass, a revelation
I could swear I heard the darkness call my name

Imagination's running for too long, oh yeah
The mind we lost can read the senses wrong

I need a shot of realization
I can't believe the things I've seen
'Cause down the bar sat the devil man
As he turned around and smiled and he said to me

He said, hey boy, I know what you're looking for
It feels so good to be so bad
Just take a chance, step through my open door
Lord

Now boy, I know you're oh so young
And the whole world shines in front of you
But I can give you anything you want
And I'll make it so easy for you

All I know is what my mama told me
All I know is what she said
When Beelzebub is sneakin' up on you
You best be dancin' on his head, yeah

Lord, do the devil's stomp
Oh, he made it sound so good
Stealin' my soul every way
The devil's price hangs on my soul
Throw a pocket full of gold his way

All I know is what my mama told me
All I know is what she said
When Beelzebub is sneakin' up on you
You best be dancin' on his head, yeah

Lord, do the devil's stomp
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah

Oh, words that'll simmer
Like the moonlight house
Oh, feels so good, you know to be so bad
You know, been holding back, baby, for much too long
And I feel it creepin' right in my bones
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Oh, Lord
Lord, do the devil's stomp
Do it
