lyrics

You had nothing that I wanted
Nothing I could ever use
So when you said "it's my way or the highway"
What did you expect me to choose

I came to you when I was just a child
You were to teach me right from wrong
But you said I could not be taught, you said I was too wild
You never let me sing my song

Well I used to believe you were smarter than me
But now I know you were only older
And I'll never believe one more word that comes out of your mouth
'Cause you ain't nothing but a devil on my shoulder

You held my hand when I was learning to walk
But then you kicked me when I fell
To yell at someone who doesn't even talk
Oh, how big you must have felt

Well I used to believe you were stronger than me
But now I know you were only older
And I'll never believe one more word that comes out of your mouth
'Cause you ain't nothing but a devil on my shoulder

You tried to sell me fame and fortune
For the low price of my soul
But when I said I would not purchase
You said "boy you're bound to fall"

Well I used to believe you were necessary to me
I thought I would need you when I'm older
But I cannot believe anything that comes out of your mouth
'Cause I know
You ain't nothing but a devil on my shoulder

And now you're talking 'bout my freedom
And you dare to say it isn't free
Well I'm the kid who cried "the king is naked"
And your story doesn't sound right to me

Well I try to believe there's still some sort of justice out there
And that everything will someday come in order
But it's hard to believe when the world seems to be broken beyond repair
And we all carry the weight of those devils on our shoulders

Carry the weight of those devils on our shoulders
