The Hook

It started off as devil's advocate
To challenge all my views
When every answer has a question
It's not hard to get confused
This is the devil at his handsomest
So hey what can you do?
If this clever devil's accurate
He might convince you too

I found the Devil down in Richmond he was fishing for some sins
He was perched up on a cloud I found him humming gospel hymns
I says: You ain't got a license this is twice I've caught you here
My indictments met with silence he just beckons me come near

He goes watch the bobber in the water down below the pole
When a sinner takes the bait all that's left to do is pull
You can see the sweet relief on all the faces of their victims
It's a vicious job but I acknowledge I am quite addicted

Then the pole was in my hand
And I cast my hook out far
This is how it all began
This is how my spiral started

Off as devil's advocate
To challenge all my views
When every answer has a question
It's not hard to get confused
This is the devil at his handsomest
So hey what can you do?
If this clever devil's accurate
He might convince you too

3-4!

So we'd meet up every weekend at a different fishing spot
Hopping on another city stayin' a step ahead of God
I didn't wanna think of consequences were I ever caught
The devil can be dangerous but no one crosses GOD

We pulled criminals and bitter souls abusers crooks and cons
But heaven never sent this set of rebels with a cause
It was thrilling, it was chilling, it was killing evil souls
The method's pretty brutal but damn we get results

We were packing up in Amsterdam and cleaning off our hooks
I took a chance to count the bounties now I wish I never looked
I found a kid inside his bucket
What the hell! He's barely eight!
Well, he must've been a sinner after all... he took the bait

It started off as devil's advocate
To challenge all my views
When every answer has a question
It's not hard to get confused
This is the devil at his handsomest
So hey what can you do?
If this clever devil's accurate
He might convince you too

I am an Angel
I took an oath
I am a savior
A danger or both

I don't go fishin'
Not anymore
I haven't seen the devil
In 20 years or more

So when I'm called into god's office told I have a new assignment
There's a lead on where he's fishing and it's up to me to find him
I can't confess that I can guess exactly where to look
Now it's up to me if I or he will end up on the hook
