Shake the devil off your shoulder
come on down and raise your head
who’s gonna pick it up if you didn't
staring at the wishing well
low down like a sinking penny
waiting time is slipping through your hands
salvation it ain’t coming
get off your knees and stand
go on traveling down that road
find what you're looking for
so you can let it go
you can walk a thousand miles
only to find what you are
is what you leave behind
every day is so uncertain
what and who’s lying up ahead
keep it going moving on
and learn to walk again
shake that devil off your shoulder
no scapegoat for idle hands
what do you get when you go shaming
someone else for what you’ve been
there is no penance there is no sin
just what you take and what you give
find your own way don't go inflicting
punishment for some forgiveness
no forgiveness
