"I believe in God and I believe in the Devil. There's certainly a Devil, and He knows my name"

-Daniel Johnston

lyrics

O, Take me back
To yesteryear
When sleep came so easily
When lights could dim
For a halo bright
When someone was watching over me

O, take me up
In your embrace
And very swiftly snap my neck
Trade Second Death
For First Estate
Drain my blood and grind my bones
And cast me out
A naked speck

May the mountains crumble over me
May my body lay unclaimed
'Cause I'm ashamed
I'm so ashamed
May your chariots lose their fire
May your angels be delayed
'Cause I'm afraid
I'm sore afraid
I'd dig the deepest, darkest pit and crawl inside, but it's in vain
He knows my name
He knows my name

The locusts shriek so in my ears
Yet no one wakes or even stirs
They announce the coming
Of a Thing that's carved its throne inside my chest
In ancient tongues I ain't never heard

May the mountains crumble over me
May my body lay unclaimed
'Cause I'm ashamed
I'm so ashamed
May your chariots lose their fire
May your angels be delayed
'Cause I'm afraid
I'm sore afraid
I'd dig the deepest, darkest pit and crawl inside, but it's in vain
He knows my name
He knows my name

Ain't no place to run
No place to hide
In the desert wasteland
Under blackened skies
I can hear the roar
Of the fiery flame
He knows my name
He knows my name
