DEVILS & DUST

11 Apr 2003 sound-check version


Got my finger on the trigger
I don't know who to trust
When I look into your eyes
It's just devils and dust
We're a long, long way from home, baby
Living a war of someone else
I feel the dirty wind blowing
Blowing devils and dust

I got God on my side
I'm just trying to stay alive
What you need to survive
Kills the things you love
Fear's a powerful thing, baby
It turns hard steel to rust
It'll take your God filled soul
Fill it with devils and dust

It's a world of blood and money, baby
It's a world of greed and lust
It's a world of smoke and mirrors
Devils and dust
It's a world of earth and oil
Paid for in gun powder and blood
Of all the ghosts and dangerous dreams, baby
Devils and dust

We got God on our side
Just trying to survive
And what you need to survive
Kills the things you love
Hate's a powerful thing, baby
It fills your heart with fire and blood
Take your God filled soul
Fill it with devils and dust

Every woman and every man
Want to take a righteous stand
Find the love that God wills
And the faith that He commands
I got my finger on the trigger, baby
Tonight faith just ain't enough
When I look into my heart
I see is devils and dust

We got God on our side
Just trying to survive
What you need to survive
Kills the things you love
It's a world of ghosts and dangerous dreams, baby
Dangerous dreams and blood
It'll take your God filled soul
Fill it with devils and dust
It'll take your blessed God filled soul
Fill it with devils and dust
