Song Lyrics: Angel or Devil

VERSE 1

Being a good girl

An expectation out of nowhere

Trying to avoid conflict

Is mistaken for kindness and goodwill

 

Silence might seem compliance

But it hosts the deepest rancour

Waiting to explode like a timebomb

Disguised with a smile and a nod

 

PRE-CHORUS

Everyone has their limit

Reaching mine has me thinking

 

CHORUS

Angel or Devil

Who I wanna be oh

Angel or Devil

What to be in this world

 

VERSE 2

Forgiving without apologies

Makes me feel so naïve

I trade justice for peace

Looking for ease that weakens me

 

Don’t get it twisted, I’m no saint

My victims know it too well

Yet, my conscience is an eternal judge

Even if my pride hides it sometimes

 

PRE-CHORUS

Everyone has their limit

Reaching mine has me thinking

 

CHORUS

Angel or Devil

Who I wanna be oh

Angel or Devil

What to be in this world

 

Why should good prevail

Amidst so much foul behaviour?

Which is the secret

Behind being sinless? Sinless

When is enough

The end?

Where can I go

For salvation?

Before it is too late

It might be too late

 

I see flames

Saying welcome to hell

Welcome to Hell

We been waiting for you

Don’t be afraid

 

BRIDGE

My world is not

Marvel or DC

Heroes don’t exist

And villains normally win

 

Darkness is sweet

Makes me a hedonist

Selfish, but immorality

Doesn’t really exist

 

I was taught that

Because Jesus forgave

And he believed in goodness

I must choose the light

 

But, as my mama said

I’m not Jesus

Jesus is Jesus

And I’m not

 

CHORUS

Why should good prevail

Amidst so much foul behaviour?

Which is the secret

Behind being sinless? Sinless

When is enough

The end?

Where can I go

For salvation?

 

Before it is too late

It might not be too late

To avoid being too late

It is never too late

 

OUTRO

Now I see clouds

White as fresh snow on soil

There are some rays of light

Did I reach the gates of paradise?

I’m ready for penitence

How long will be my sentence?

I will be a good girl

Till I lose my temper again

Such an inner devil

With an angel demeanour

A personified dichotomy

Rules my soul”
