lyrics

They say to never risk what you can’t live without
But ignorance is bliss and I can’t live with doubt
And every time I think “what if” or “what could be”
The same kind of thoughts still come around
Typical resistance where damage amounts to
Putting up your fences while they stand in your house
So ask yourself a question that you can’t figure out
Why won’t you make a move instead of standing around
You got a path to pave if you won’t stand for fate
Cherish every breathe like it’s the last you’ll take
Treat yesterdays regrets like your last mistake
And don’t you start to blame poetic tragedy
So please believe me, believe me please
Gotta stay one step ahead when two stepping
Time to dance with the devil to this cool new beat
Just pray that you ain’t got two left feet

When you’re dancing with the devil by the pale moon light
Raptured by the rhythm of the dead of night
Dancing with the devil
Dancing with the devil by the pale moon light

It ain’t your concern if I get burned
And if I’m playing with fire maybe I might learn
Or maybe I won’t. maybe try a different approach
Maybe I’m too difficult a lil thick in the skull
You see I’ve been ridiculed and convinced that I’m wrong
Boy bite your tongue ’til your opinion is gone
But if I listen at all then I really didn’t get the picture
Empty all your ammunition, still standing strong
I’m not a gambling man but I’ll stand where I am
On the cross roads, I’ll be damned if I ran
You can’t understand by any means necessary
Endlessly getting ready, came with a plan
So please believe me, believe me please
I stay one step ahead when two steppin
Gotta dance with the devil to this cool new beat
I only pray that I ain’t got two left feet (let’s go)

When you’re dancing with the devil by the pale moon light
Raptured by the rhythm of the dead of night
Dancing with the devil
Dancing with the devil by the pale moon light

T-O-M-A-H-A-W-K
Didn’t sell my soul to double my pay
Or make a trade for fortune and fame unfortunately
All I got was rhymes and a couple of lines
to make the kids go “What did he say?” (What did he say?)
I said lay that beat down, turn it up
Just a little louder, please turn it up
Oh that’s fire, we burnin up

When you’re dancing with the devil by the pale moon light
Raptured by the rhythm of the dead of night
Dancing with the devil
Dancing with the devil by the pale moon light
