One step back from a beat down maniac
I'm tired of taking a backseat from all the other demons
That are stealing all the good shit
Leaving me with nothing but my hands
Another stroke down my back
Tasting all the flames
That are licking around my neck and making me insane
As they pull me down
Pull me down in to my grave
I can't get away

Oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh
It doesn't mean a thing
Until you're deep inside, dancing to the devil's swing
Woooah-oooah-oooah
It doesn't mean a goddamn thing
Dance to the devil's swing

Spin down inside, begging for another ride
I'm trying to find a way to keep it all and satisfy the needs I'm craving
I'm not taking it lightly
Oh no
I'm living inside
A dead lie
Controlled by the devil's eyes
And I don't mind, yeah
Draw my ace up and roll my snake eyes nightly
Hold on, baby

Oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh
It doesn't mean a thing
Until you're deep inside, dancing to the devil's swing
Woooah-oooah-oooah
It doesn't mean a goddamn thing
Until you're deep inside, dancing to the devil's swing
Oh, dancing
Dance to the devil's swing

Play with my
Insanity
Live inside
My darkened
My darkened dreams
Darkened dreams
Hail to the devil's swing

Oooh, oooh, oooh, oooh
It doesn't mean a thing
Until you're deep inside, dancing to the devil's swing
Woooah-oooah-oooah
It doesn't mean a goddamn thing
Until you're deep inside, dancing to the devil's swing
Woooah-oooah-oooah
It doesn't mean a goddamn thing
A goddamn thing
Dance to the devil's swing
