Songs: Ohia – Nay, 'tis Not Death lyrics

The lord knows mercy he don't know fire
And fire receive thy soul(x2)
The devil knows mercy, the devil knows fire
And fire receive thy soul(x2)
I see the sun alone every morning
I see the soul of you
The rest is instinctive
Guess now who holds thee
Is it death(x5)
Nay, its not death
And this... Tonight do not retire
The lost trade their bibles
For whiskey's sweet fire
And fire receive thy soul(x2)
The lost tonight do not retire
I'm faithful I'm faithful in fire
And fire receive thy soul
Is it death(x2)
Nay, its not death(x2)
