Part one of our saga about a man who tricks the Devil out of his wares, so to speak.

Sure hope this guy's got a plan.


I arrived at the crossroads,
The hour late.
I stood in the cold,
Cursin' my fate.
I called to the beast,
To show Himself.
I offered my soul,
To add to His wealth.

No time for deviations,
Or soulful contemplations

He stepped from the shadows,
Sportin' that grin.
Well I took that
As my cue to begin.
I won't dual you, or your golden fiddle
And you won't speak in dual entendre riddles.

No time for deviations,
Or soulful contemplations

When I leave, I'll leave with a smile,
Cause Sucka, I'm gonna walk with your guile.
These are my terms, now Do we have a deal?
Turns out we did, our handshake was the seal.
So you old devil, I got your charm.
Til I give it back you'll do no harm.
While we're at it, I think you lost your appeal.
Let me break it down to you, the raw deal.

You just got played.
Now it's your turn to burn.
Told you it'd be this way,
Everyone keeps what they earn.

So that's when I looked him square in the eye,
Got a good footing and testified. (Got a good footing and...)
As if lightning struck where the suzerain stood,
Dropped him as well as any man could.
While I watched that bastard fall to his knees,
I have to admit, I felt some relief. (I have to admit it felt good)
Cause I really hadn't planned past this part,
And I just got a much needed head-start.

No time for deviations,
Or soulful contemplations

For the devil, you see,
He's after me
