Arto Hietala: Acting All Right / Devil Gonna Come (Now)


Could you spare me a little time
For I woke up dead in the front line
Now I'm watching these bodies around me
Acting some play and I keep getting cast in it

I'm an artist one thinks, but I hear him
Something's just so wrong behind that grin
Spare me a little time
For I'm losing hope while acting all right
Give me time, help me wake up alive
I'm losing it all while acting all right

A distorted face, oh, it's mine
Call and cancel the beauty parlor
But, hey, maybe there's a job for me now
Starring in some good old school horror

The verbal beauty cuts the air
But it's all trained expressions
Does someone care?
Analyzing what is right and fair
While singing the blues

I saw it on Facebook page
I saw it on a page in the web
That boy - he played the guitar loud and well
The chords rang like the Devil would play
And he sang to the Devil, oh Lord
He played for the Devil so well, oh Lord
And he sang for the Devil, oh Lord
May God stake his claim on the boy

I saw it on You Tube channel web page
That boy - he played the guitar so well
And he sang about the Devil coming to take him away
He played for the Devil to come take his soul away
The Devil gonna come now and take the soul off the boy
May God stake his claim on the boy
On the poor boy, po' boy

Well, that boy belongs to the Devil now, oh Lord
May God stake his claim on the boy
To save him from the Devil, to save him from Hell
May God stake his claim on the boy
Oh poor boy, po' boy

I heard it on the radio
Saw it on the Facebook page
And even You Tube channel page
Everybody sings the song of the Devil, oh Lord
They sing to the Devil so well
And they play the guitar for the Devil
And sing so well
Devil gonna come now and take their souls away
Take their souls to Hell and they're gonna burn
May God stake His claim on everyone
Save us all from the Song of the Devil
May God stake his claim on everyone
Save us all from the Song of the Devil
May God stake his claim
