  • Help me get my feet back to solid ground
    Cause were walking to the devil's beat
    And it's trying to bring us down.

    Well the devil's get us rolling a six-sided dice
    And it's burning up the oils and melting down the ice
    And the bank tills are ringing to through tune of war
    Do you ever wonder what it is we're fighting for?

    Oh it don't feel so good when the sun don't shine
    Oh we gotta leave this place leave it all behind
    Oh before I lose my head and I lose my mind

    Help me get my feet back to solid ground
    Cause were walking to the devil's beat
    And it's trying to bring us down.

    Sweet mother nature's such a lonely girl
    What's she gonna do when we sell the world
    Time will only tell if the prophecy's true
    Has the devil got the beat or has the beat got you.

    Oh it don't feel so good when the sun don't shine
    Oh we gotta leave this place leave it all behind
    Oh before I lose my head and I lose my mind

    Help me get my feet back to solid ground
    Cause were walking to the devil's beat
    And it's trying to bring us down.
    Come on and help me get my feet back to solid ground
    Cause were walking to the devil's beat
    And it's trying to bring us down.

    Oh it don't feel so good when the sun don't shine
    Oh we gotta leave this place leave it all behind
    Oh before I lose my head and I lose my mind

    Help me get my feet back to solid ground
    Cause were walking to the devil's beat
    And it's trying to bring us down. Writer/s: SANDI THOM, DUNCAN THOMPSON, JAKE FIELD
