Talk of the Devil – A rebel call.

This is a poem/Song lyric, I wrote some time ago but it fitted this word prompt so well…

I keep hearing people say
I’ve gotta kill my wild ways
but I’m a wild kind of guy
with no chance to change
better keep outta my way
if you think me strange
I am what I am
and that’s the way I’ll stay.

Everywhere I go, I hear
Talk of the Devil
Wherever I appear
It’s Talk of the Devil
But I’m no satan’s spawn
I just won’t be a pawn
In this society.

People say I’m just so weird
My evil image means I’m feared
but see beneath the look
and I’m just as scared
Whatever I did or said
It’s hard when no one cared
I just couldn’t conform
and the crowds just jeered.

Everywhere I go, I hear
Talk of the Devil
Wherever I appear
It’s Talk of the Devil
But I’m no satan’s spawn
I just won’t be a pawn
In this society.

Let all the crowds jeer,
I don’t care anymore
Let them say what they say
I don’t care anymore
In all their gossip, I just revel.
I don’t care, let them say
Talk of the devil
But I’m no satan’s spawn
I just won’t be a pawn
In this society.

Talk of the Devil – A rebel call.

I keep hearing people say

I’ve gotta kill my wild ways

but I’m a wild kind of guy

with no chance to change

better keep outta my way

if you think me strange

I am what I am

and that’s the way I’ll stay.

 

Everywhere I go, I hear

Talk of the Devil

Wherever I appear

It’s Talk of the Devil

But I’m no satan’s spawn

I just won’t be a pawn

In this society.

 

People say I’m just so weird

My evil image means I’m feared

but see beneath the look

and I’m just as scared

What ever I did or said

It’s hard when no one cared

I just couldn’t conform

and the crowds just jeered.

 

Everywhere I go, I hear

Talk of the Devil

Wherever I appear

It’s Talk of the Devil

But I’m no satan’s spawn

I just won’t be a pawn

In this society.

 

Let all the crowds jeer,

I don’t care anymore

Let them say what they say

I don’t care anymore

In all their gossip, I just revel.

I don’t care, let them say

Talk of the devil

But I’m no satan’s spawn

I just won’t be a pawn

In this society.
