Intro
They say when a family is united, the enemy becomes a prey
I say and when a family is not, they become the enemy's pawn

Fighting you is destroying my core
The pain we feel, you feel it deep
Without you, we are no more
Without us, you'll lose more than sleep
At war with us feels like a war with myself
It's a losing battle, we can't split one
and remain whole
Why can't we stop? We're aware or are we?
We're awake though aren't we?

The devil knows that together we are a force
so he kept us at odds as we allowed
the misunderstandings that never get cleared
the manipulation to persist, the pain to increase
Question is: Will we let him win?

Chorus
I don't want either of us to leave this world never mended
Especially when we got a healer, like no other, Jesus!
He is always ready, with arms wide open, to receive us
Even when we've been rejected, shunned and unaccepted
He's waiting to heal us all together
Are you in?

Get down on your knee, open up your heart and pray
Call on his name, ask him for help
Let him heal you and lead your way
There's no grammar with the Lord
Knock and ask, He'll answer the door
Let's not let the devil win

Pride can't forgive or are we just too blind
Wounded souls can't feel, the devil knows
Can't see the hurt we've caused beyond our
own pain, victimized
Need to heal, let go and let God
Change never cease, something's got to give
Let's start somewhere, we gotta look within

God made me crawl back to the source
that you are and I am glad
Like to Jesus, we are your vines
There's no greater feeling
Than to finally see and feel you
Let's not end this life without repair, in regret

The devil knows that if we only knew our power as a unit
He will be put to shame and he hates to lose
We would spot his schemes instead of falling into his traps
If you only knew there's nothing in this world that would top
us realizing how deep our love for each other runs and felt it
Cause after all, there's no real pain where there's no love at all
And where there's love and unity, baby the devil suffocates

As cliché as it sound, tomorrow is not promised
no money or accomplishment in this world could
replace your presence, you are greatness
Together, we are solid
So are you with me or will you let the devil win?

Will you let the devil win?

Verse 1
Bound in shackles
Struggled with failures
Prisoner of my past
Trapped in sin
Self-neglect, became incompetent
Cards declined, closed account
Major depression got me at hell’s door
Anti-ADHD meds, stripped the brain
Insomnia, pain exacerbates
Now they call me illiterate, go figure
The devil’s lies’ loud
Says I’ll never make it, not now


Chorus
But then you called my name
Heavy chains were broken
Shame and regret faded
Torch in the darkest hours
I have been redeemed
Yes, I have found God
He has set me free (2x)
I have been restored


Bridge
Dead inside, walking amongst the living
They see you breathing and assume you’re alive
Meanwhile your soul is dying, Yes, I’ve been crying
Never church hopped, I know you hate me
But you are taking it too far
Been wandering and wondering
If I will ever feel whole, do you know?
You seem to know my ins, my out
My heart, my soul, my thoughts, do let me know
Cause I need to glow, I am made of gold

Verse 2
Tired of staring in the mirror
Calling out my name
To connect with self but she’s silent
Aren’t we one of the same
Depersonalization got them questioning
My authenticity
What happened to her?

She must have been molested, raped, no abused!
Molested? No.
Well she lies, she’s fake, she must have alters
She’s a whole vignette, definitely got something
Mommy issues, child-like, soul ties
Something isn’t right, she needs deliverance

Jesus, God, the holy spirit?
Nah, she’s a patient, needs a mental institution
Whatever, she needs help and to leave
She’s a menace, unstable, pretentious
She's trouble
Throw the whole girl away, she needs all of it
The devil’s lies loud
I got lost, trying to find my way

Verse 3
Distorted sense of time, detached from self
Seems unreal, am I even real?
Numb emotions and bodily senses
Altered perceptions, late night visitations
Maybe you're right, but then again
If it’s all due to trauma, why did it disappear
Shortly after prayer, during exorcism, will it reappear?
Help me understand bc it’s more complex
Just because you don’t believe
Doesn’t make it false
Just because I fell in the trap
Make it make sense
Spirituality can’t simply be understood by your intellect
The devil’s lies loud
