Right from the start I got it wrong
I did the things I shouldn't have done
I'm between the devil and the deep blue sea
Now someone else looks after me
I stole every minute from time's locked doors
Add sold used souls in bargain stores
Without a conscience I was king of the flies
I laid in gutters and told you lies

Yellow light bulb
Light's go out at ten o'clock
Bolted steel door
This time they'll throw the key away
Cold grey floorstone
It feels like home now
Not another sleepless night
How do the flies get in and out

I changed the rules to suit myself
I swapped my heart for something else
Stuck between the devil and an overdose
I played hands tied with the Holy Ghost
Well I made some money on my way down
I dragged my friends into the ground
Get behind me Satan if you want your share
This cell is more than I can bear

Yellow light bulb
Light's go out at ten o'clock
Bolted steel door
This time they'll throw the key away
Cold grey floorstone
It feels like home now
Not another sleepless night
How do the flies get in and out
