Dodgin' God & The Devil - Lyric Ques
*******************
00:43
Stone me!
What a life!
Neon blur and a fast night, Where are you now Libertine?
00:57
Stone me!
What a life!
Strobe flash faces and a flicker fire,
Where are you now Libertine?
1:08
Tryin' to be God by being the Devil.
It's all but the same
Just another level!
1:20
Tryin' to be God by being the Devil.
It's just another game
Testing my mettle!
1:32
Own me.
What's the price?
Cherry rock candy
And a silver wire,
You got me now Libertine.
1:43
Throw me on the ice. Pick up the pieces and bury me nice. You got me now Libertine.
1:55
Tryin' to be God by being the Devil.
It's all but the same - just another level.
2:05
Tryin' to be God by being the Devil.
It's just another game, testing my mettle!
2:16
(Bridge)
And I feel the same way,
And I don't want to change it away.
And I feel it all today,
And I don't want to change it away.
2:39
Bridge 2
(Here we go now...)
3:14
Tryin' to be God by being the Devil.
It's just another game
Just another level!
3:25
Tryin' to be God by being the Devil. It's just another game,
Testing my mettle!
3:34
(Yeah -yeah yeah yeah)
