This song imagines what a mother might say to a son when living in a war or conflict zone. What might the son feel? Like not even waking for another day of hell. The ever present danger of being killed. Like the devil at your back.


Behind these walls
Holy thieves
Selling souls they can't release

Careful son,
You'll get your head blown off on these streets

Brittle walls, heavy stones,
Bullet holes, Hollow bones

Hide your gun
And walk through daylight only, please

Never go, never go, never go alone
Never go and lose your enemy

Watch your back
And keep your head down where you sleep

When you grow up feeling,
The devil's all too real then
You never know the peace
That let's you
Sleep before the sun comes up

In the marketplace, the open spaces
Of the world we used to know

In these days we do not pray
There's no tomorrow or yesterday

When you grow up feeling,
The devil's all too real then
