THE POWER OF THE BLUES

The difference between the right hand path, and the left hand path.

God gave us decision
Between wrong and right
Clear as the difference
Between day 'n' night
You can descend into darkness
Or go towards the light
Elect yourself your own executioner
Destined to fight

The devil don't come to your door
Unless you let him in
That's when you begin
To pile up sin upon sin
That's the power of the blues (x2)

Cheating & lying
Won't do you no good
Harder to do the right thing
Like you know you should
To take without giving
Is to make yourself a slave
Might as well go out
And dig your own grave

That's the power of the blues (x2)
That's the truth you've been misusing
That's the truth you've been abusing
That's the power of the blues

Love is a harmony
Between different souls
Like the strings vibrate in unison
But each one standing alone
The joy is in giving
And sharing the song
Not suffocating and strangling
And living in fear alone

That's when you begin
The pile up sin upon sin
The truth that you will lose
That road that you will choose
That's the power of the blues

It's so easy to go down
But so hard to come back up
It's got nothing to do
With good or bad luck
As you so, so you shall reap
Was it good or bad deed that you keep?

The devil don't come
To your door, unless you let him in
That's when you begin to
Pile up sin upon sin
That's the power of the blues
That's the power of the blues
