Letter To The Devil

Poetry By: Trainman238

Here is a new song that I just finished making.
Please let me know what you think of both the lyrics and the music. Thank you!
It's a long song, but if you will listen to the whole thing and let me know what you think I would really appreciate it.

Simply put, I refuse to just sit here
and be walked on by you. In your arrogance you
seem to have mistaken compassion for
weakness and patience for fear. It's just so disgusting.
Pulling the strings, trying to control my life,
You seem to think that I am just your personal
puppet. One you can just toy around with.
But I will take a stand and prove you wrong.

I will not be afraid to stand up and proclaim the name
of the one who saved my life.
I will not be afraid to answer you honestly when you
ask me why I am so hopeful.
When you ask me why I continue to press on
despite the circumstances, I will tell you that
I have the greatest hope, it lives inside my heart
It comes from up above, and it conquered you.

I'm sick of your stupid games.
Pretending to help me up
Just to beat me down again
And laugh at me when I fall.
You think you can get away
With all this? I think you're wrong

I will not be afraid to stand up and proclaim the name
of the one who saved my life.
I will not be afraid to answer you honestly when you
ask me why I am so hopeful.
When you ask me why I continue to press on
despite the circumstances, I will tell you that
I have the greatest hope, it lives inside my heart
It comes from up above, and it conquered you.

I will no longer stand here and simply watch this
happen to everybody around me. It breaks my heart
to see others falling into all your malicious traps.
They don't know what they are getting themselves
into, but yet you go on ahead pulling them right on in,
you cheater, you fraud, you terrible liar.
You whisper falseness straight into their ears,
sweet lies of empty hope that lead them to nothing but
nothingness. And then you gloat, oh you gloat when they fall.
Yes, you love to gloat when the helpless are destroyed.
Your insecurities, they disgust me to the verge of vomiting,
you hideous two-face, you filthy backstabber, you
abomination who is below the earth, terrible as it is,
you have been cast into a fiery pit of eternal torment.

I will tell them about the love that comes from
up above, from heaven, God sent his son to earth
to die up upon that cross for all of their sins,
so that they would not have to suffer with you
in hell for all of eternity. I will tell them that
they don't have to settle for less, that there is
more out there for them, that they can receive salvation.
And I will tell them how to achieve eternal life
in the kingdom of heaven, and I will try to lead them to

I promise you that I will not back down,
that I will never give in to your evil scheme
For I have the greates hope, and it lives inside my heart,
it comes from God above And yes, it conquered you
