  • Take my sins and wash them away
    Teach me how to pray
    I've been stranded here in the dark
    Take these walls away

    I've been swimming in the ocean
    Till I'm almost drowned
    Give me something I can believe in
    Teach me how to pray

    And we can do drugs and we can smoke weed and we can drink whiskey
    Yeah we can get high and we can get stoned
    And we can sniff glue and we can do E and we can drop acid
    Forever be lost with no way home

    Yeah we can run and we can hide
    But we won't find the answers
    If you go down then you'll get help along the way
    But if you wanna save your soul
    Then we should travel all together
    And make the devil pray

    Ooo, save my soul, ooo, save my soul
    Ooo, save my soul
    Devil's here to fool ya

    Ooo, save my soul, ooo, save my soul
    Ooo, save my soul
    Devil's here to fool ya

    Ooo, save my, ooo, save my
    Ooo, save my
    Devil's here to fool ya

    Ooo, save my, ooo, save my
    Ooo, save my
    Devil's here to fool ya

    Mother Mary can't you help me
    'Cause I've gone astray
    All the angels that were around me
    Have all flown away
    The ground beneath my feet's getting warmer
    Lucifer is near
    Holding on, but I'm getting weaker
    Watch me disappear

    And we can do drugs and we can smoke weed and we can drink whiskey
    Yeah we can get high and we can get stoned
    And we can sniff glue and we can do E and we can drop acid
    Forever be lost with no way home

    Yeah we can run and we can hide
    But we won't find the answers
    If you go down then you'll get help along the way
    But if you wanna save your soul
    Then we should travel all together
    And make the devil pray

    Ooo ooo sing hallelujah
    Ooo save my soul
    Ooo ooo the devil's here to fool ya
    Until my story is told

    I said ooo ooo sing hallelujah
    Ooo save my soul
    Ooo ooo the devil's here to fool ya
    Until my story is told

    I said
    Ooo, sing hallelujah, ooo
    Until my story's told Writer/s: Ash Pournouri, Carl Anthony Falk, Dacoury Natche, Madonna L Ciccone, Michael Tucker, Rami Yacoub, Savan Harish Kotecha, Tim Bergling
