about

"Hell" is a deep, gutterul, country swamp rock track filled with lyrics about trying to be a good man in a world gone to hell. About being the only person who thinks from one day to the next you might be crazy. And, about watching someone fall and being able to do absolutely nothing... and living with it.

lyrics

my old man, never keep me down,
he put the wings on my back,
the sweat in my brow,

my old man, he said to me,
just you go ahead my boy,
be all you can be,

Well he see me toil,
and he see me change,
he know there's a war inside my head,
trouble in my brain,

and he thinks i'm good,
i bet you think i'm alright,
but you don't know that i'm the devil in the night,

hell it keeps me runnin'
hell it keeps me runnin'
on down the line,

my old ma,
she ain't no saint,
she know dat war is gonna gonna push me away,
well I kill you now, I kill you dead,
along with all those demons you've got running around in your head,

hell it keeps me runnin'
hell it keeps me runnin'
on down the line,

I sit alone and watch you burn,
I sit alone and watch you burn,
I sit alone and watch you,
oh god i'm trying to trust you,
I sit alone and watch you,
oh god i'm trying to trust you.
