Marilyn Manson - The Devil Beneath My Feet lyrics

Don’t want your God and Your higher power
Want power to get higher
And I’m not allowed, and I’m not allowed
When you look up, what would you see?
Don’t need a motherfucker lookin’ down on me
Motherfucker lookin’ down on me

Least I know wherever I go
I got the devil beneath my feet
Least I know wherever I go
I got the devil beneath my feet
Beneath my feet

Don’t bring your black heart to bed
When I wake up you’d best be gone
Or you’d better be dead
Don’t bring your black heart to bed
When I wake up you’d best be gone
Or you’d better be dead

You’d best be gone
Or you’d better be dead

It’s what happens when you put an apple on your head
You could laugh all day but you can’t laugh the darkness away
Can’t laugh the darkness away
Too many pills and not enough kills
I need a bug out, sold that big house
You’ll never take me alive, never take me alive
Oh never fuckin’ take me alive

It’s better to be blamed for robbin’ Peter
Than guilty for payin’ Paul
It’s better to be blamed for robbin’ Peter
Than guilty for payin’ Paul

Don’t bring your black heart to bed
When I wake up you’d best be gone
Or you’d better be dead
Don’t bring your black heart to bed
When I wake up you’d best be gone
Or you’d better be dead

You’d best be gone
Or you’d better be dead
You’d best be gone
Or you’d better be dead

Don’t need a motherfuckerr lookin’ down on me
A motherfucker lookin’ down on me
Don’t need a motherfucker lookin’ down on me
A motherfucker lookin’ down on me
Don’t need a motherfucker lookin’ down on me
A motherfucker lookin’ down on me

At least I know wherever I go
I got the devil beneath my feet
At least I know wherever I go
I got the devil beneath my feet

At least I know wherever I go
I got the devil beneath my feet
At least I know wherever I go
I got the devil beneath my feet

At least I know wherever I go
I got the devil beneath my feet
At least I know wherever I go
I got the devil beneath my feet

Now, many many years ago
When I was twenty three
I was married to a widow
Who was pretty as could be
This widow had a grown-up daughter
Had hair of red
My father fell in love with her
And soon the two were wed
This made my dad my son-in-law
And changed my very life
My daughter was my mother
Because she was my father’s wife
To complicate the matters
Even though it brought me joy
I soon became the father
Of a bouncing baby boy
My little baby then became
A brother-in-law to dad
And so became my uncle
Though it made me very sad
For if he was my uncle
That also made him the brother
Of the widow’s grown-up daughter
Who, of course, was my step-mother

[Chorus]
I’m my own grandpa
I’m my own grandpa
It sounds funny I know
But it really is so
I’m my own grandpa

[Verse 2]
My father’s wife then had a son
That kept them on the run
And he became my grandchild
For he was my daughter’s son
My wife is now my mother’s mother
And it makes me blue
Because, she is my wife
She’s my grandmother too

[Chorus]
I’m my own grandpa
I’m my own grandpa
It sounds funny I know
But it really is so
I’m my own grandpa

[Verse 3]
Now, if my wife is my grandmother
Then, I am her grandchild
And every time I think of it
It nearly drives me wild
For now I have become
The strangest case you ever saw
As the husband of my grandmother
I am my own grandpa

[Chorus]
I’m my own grandpa
I’m my own grandpa
It sounds funny I know
But it really is so
I’m my own grandpa
I’m my own grandpa
I’m my own grandpa
It sounds funny I know
But it really is so
I’m my own grandpa
