The Devil Doesn't Sleep

Knock, Knock

The Devil Doesn't Sleep

The Devil Doesn’t Sleep

The devil doesn’t sleep,

He’s always creeping,

Looking for a way to seep in

Don’t let him in,

He’ll lie and cheat to win.

He’ll lend you an ear.

Only to prey on your fears,

Turn your tears,

Into godly fears,

He’ll put thoughts in your brain to drive you insane,

His aim is to fill you with dread, so you’ll be dead.

He’ll win,

If you commit the ultimate sin,

So don’t let him in,

And he’ll have no chance to win,

And you won’t be tempted to commit the ultimate sin,

Your soul the devil won’t be hold.
