They say she had a heart attack I think the preacher's coming back And I'm frying 'cause all my love's electrifying And I'm comfy like a cesspool Want to be with you And it's my premonition I better give my heart a listen And my preacher say All of your demons will wither away Ecstasy comes and they cannot stay You'll understand when you come my way 'Cause all of my demons have withered away They said he shook himself to death I want to dance 'til my last breath But mister disco only parties hard in Frisco And I'm comfy like a cesspool want to be with you And it's my premonition I better give my heart a listen And my preacher say All of your demons will wither away Ecstasy comes and they cannot stay You'll understand when you come my way 'Cause all of my demons have withered away
