    (the devil's tryin' me...)

    clenched fists--
    smoggy air--
    beeping cars eighteen wheelers--
    gridlocked standstill--
    hurting hearts--
    contemplating suicide--
    generating homocides--
    mental pictures coincide--
    hope--
    in visionairie's eyes--
    killed by heated city lies--
    social cover ups--
    transmitters in my coffee mug--
    speakers in my strawberry coolatta--
    bright sun or flashlight?
    i don't know...u tell me.

    seems like the world be--
    playing me close--
    CAUTION:
    if i was the world--
    i'd back up off me...

    god's eye--
    staring hard--
    seeking purity in a world that--
    speaks less than love of him--
    yet the devil's trick--
    says he never lived as lucifer--
    even more so...
    never lived.

    the devil is a liar...
    and he's trying my patience--
    i keep repeating--
    54:17
    in a world that needs a contact lens--
    for their third eye's vision.

    sean.

    "can y'all hear me out there?"
