The Devil You Know

                       


Cover up your tracks and steal away
Gotta get that pig off your back

Fall between the cracks and keep at bay
Done nothing wrong you've earned the slack

It's easy to be trapped again
Like so many times before
So easy to get back again
You're fine, or just a little more?

It's the devil you know
Better than the one you don't

Walk with your head held high
It's just a little white lie
It's just a final high

Found a thousand dollars in that motel
In the mattress of a filthy bed

I swear I didn't push, I did not steal
If I did so strike me dead

It's the devil you know
Better than the one you don't
