White Devils
(Ghosty)

Well I'm a white boy
In a black uniform
And I'm a blues song
From a time long gone

And life is short
But I'm not sure
If the devil will be waiting
At the end of the song

So we blaze on
Riding through the streets tonight
And we watch the city
Burn by the starlight
And we dance with the devil
By the pale moonlight
And we ride on
And we ride high

So get ready my rebels
For bad cops and white devils
Bury your god
We're going to burn that flag
Everybody, rise up rebels
On we ride

And it's been a long, long day
And I got a lot of regrets
And my god
Have you forgotten about your subjects?

And it's been a rough week
Man I've had a tough year
I'm so tired
Of trying to pretend I belong here

And I could tell you stories
Brother, that you wouldn't believe
Man, I've known amazing people
I've done crazy things
And I'm going to tell my tale now
Cause I might not have long

Because the devil could be waiting
At the end of the song

So we blaze on
Riding through the streets tonight
And we watch the city burn
By the starlight

And we dance with the devil
Brother, I believe
That we can ride on
And ride free

So get ready my rebels
For bad cops and white devils
Bury your god
Were going to burn that flag
Everybody rise up
Rebels, on we ride

Well I said this life
Has been one crazy messed up ride
Wherever I go in this world
It's been do or die

Whatever I want
Nothing ever comes without a fight
And so we ride on
And we ride high

I swindled millions
But I got away with every dime
I've been a villain
But believe me
Brother I've done my time
I've been a player
All the world's a stage
From Vaudeville to Broadway

And I've been a dealer
In my younger days
Selling beats and rhymes
Lullabyes and cocaine
Yeah, I've been broke
And I've seen hard times
But a beggar
He don't pay for a piece of mind

And I've seen peace
And I've seen war
I've seen that angel
When she washed up upon the shore

Yes, I've known amazing people
I've done crazy things, baby
I've known love
And the pain it brings

And I swayed at the end
of the hangman's rope
Yes I've been a heartbreaker
and I've had mine broke

Sewed the pieces back together
like some freaky Frankenstein
Now I'm a punk rock prophet
in a suit and tie

And if redemption is in a song
then maybe this one is mine

So lover come along
And meet me on the other side
Because were doomed to die
But baby, come that day
I'll look the devil in the eye
and he'll hear me say

That we blazed on
Riding through the streets all night
And we watched the city burn
By the starlight
And we're sick and tired of fighting
Brother I believe
That we can ride on
And ride free

Yeah we blazed on
Riding through that street all night
And we watched the world burn
By the firelight

And we rise
Like angels into the sky
Grabbing at the Heavens
Through the devil's lies

So we blaze on
Riding through the streets all night
And we watch the city burn
By the firelight

So let's dance with the devil, baby
I believe
That we can ride on
And we ride free

So get ready my rebels
For bad cops and white devils

Bury your god
Were going to burn that flag
Everybody rise up
Rebels on we ride

Rebels, on we ride....
