    No, I don't want sympathy,
    I just want somewhere for these sins to go
    Compromise is the devil talking and he spoke to me

    He mentioned something of moving in,
    I conversed once with him and yes
    He related to me how necessity is evil's mother
    He has no father,
    only victims weak or strong.
    I hope this won't take long

    I was right the first time,
    I'll put it right with thirst now

    Well, you might say I'm trying to redeem myself and in a way
    I think that's true, but I'm just trying to bite off more than those
    That chew more than I do

    You could say that I'm a bitter man
    and once again, I think that's true,
    I witl remain so until I better those
    that know more than I do
    It kind of reminds me of that burning feeling
    I used to get
    You know, that little problem I used to get What
    Are you still getting trouble with this?
    Yeah, not all the time or anything
    Like it was?
    Yeah, sometimes
    Are you sure it's not heartburn?
    No, it's definitely not heartburn
    It's just a little matter of a burning,
    a little matter of a burning nature
    It's not arson, it's not arson
    It's OK it's my problem I'll deal with it myself
