Breaking Benjamin – Dance With The Devil lyrics

Here I stand,
Helpless and left for dead.
Close your eyes,
So many days gone by.
Easy to find what's wrong,
Harder to find what's right.

I believe in you,
I can show you that
I can see right through
All your empty lies.
I won't stay long,
In this world so wrong.

[Chorus:]
Say goodbye,
As we dance with
The devil tonight.
Don't you dare look at
Him in the eye,
As we dance with
The devil tonight
.

Trembling,
Crawling across my skin.
Feeling your cold, dead eyes,
Stealing the life of mine.

I believe in you,
I can show you that
I can see right through
All your empty lies.
I won't last long,
In this world so wrong.

[Chorus:]
Say goodbye,
As we dance with
The devil tonight.
Don't you dare look at
Him in the eye,
As we dance with
The devil tonight.

Hold on,
Hold on.

[Chorus:]
Say goodbye,
As we dance with
The devil tonight.
Don't you dare look at
Him in the eye,
As we dance with
The devil tonight.

Hold on,
Hold on.

    Every person has that one trait inside them that taunts them and eats away at them. Yet, they enjoy it and make excuses for it. I believe he wrote this song for his drinking and smoking problem. He knew it was something that was wrong, but he did it anyway. Then he goes on to say that together, we can fight our demons/devils inside us. But, it won't be an easy goodbye.
    On a note: Ben gave up drinking and smoking excessivelly sometime after Phobia was released. Guess he found meaning in his own words. True inspiration!

    This song is one of the very inspirational ones that talks about all your bad deeds, in this one I think it is about him repenting on his past sins, like the line "easy to find whats wrong, harder to find whats right" that means like its easy to give in to temptation but its hard to do what you know is right, also the chorus kinda gives me the feeling that he has died in "this world so wrong" and is now in like a crossroad: will he give into sin again or start doing the right thing? And he would choose the good path, but he has to fight his demons in order to go on that path that's were I think the lines "as we dance with the devil tonite, dont you dare look him in the eye, as we dance with the devil tonite" come from, he has to fix his mistakes to become a good person.
