lyrics

Keep your hand upon the throttle
Keep your head above the grave
There is no time to wonder if your soul can be saved
But I sometimes still wonder in the mirrors of my ways
If my soul reflects a firey blaze

She-on did find me in the corner of the room
Staring at the markings of an unmarked tomb
When I wake up this morning
And hard times did fall on
I'll dig my grave and sing my song

Chorus
Mama always told me
Be careful with whom you walk
The devil looks upon you and always answers when you knock
Yes he always answers when you knock

My shadow drags behind me like a ghost from my past
Haunting each footstep to remind me I live too fast
Like a solider into battle I'm hearing my call
So I answer with a footprint of what I saw
If fame is the food that dead men eat
Then they'll float above the ground with their souls upon their feet
Hold back your tears mama do not cry
Just lift me up to the spirit in the sky

<CHORUS>
