Sell My Soul

Album: Diesel and Dust (1987)
  • Let's begin, I am ready, let's begin
    Sell my soul to him
    Shed my skin, I just want to shed my skin
    I don't want to sell my soul to him
    Mechanize, city bursts and farmers die
    They cry
    Sleep face down in a goods train heading south in the rain

    In this world I often think you understand me
    In these words I often think you'd recognize me
    'Cause I just want to swim with the fish in the sea
    And I want faith to heal so that I can be clean

    America's great now
    If you don't talk back
    You hide your face
    Crawl in rubble and smile and scorn
    At that snail-paced creature
    Going up and down walls

    Celebrate, I just want to celebrate
    I'm not going to sell my soul to him
    When you look right in Writer/s: JAMES MOGINIE, MARTIN ROTSEY, PETER GARRETT, PETER GIFFORD, ROBERT HIRST
