Death and The Devil sat under a tree
The owls in the branches sang Abide With Me
Hello my old friend, said Death to the Beast
I also have powers over all the deceased

Of course we all fear you, I get that you’re dark
It’s just that I, too, can make flame from a spark
So please tell your children to show some respect
To get to the Devil, they must pass through Death

From the east came a wind, no, it was more like a breeze
It sang like a hymn from the chorus of trees
The Devil exhaled, he could see his own breath
But that’s how it is when you're dealing with Death

And the devil
Polite in his ways
Listened with Grace
Then a wise grin
Crept across his old face

How have you been? I expect all is fine
It’s funny you bring up all those who are mine
Murderers, kidnappers, politicians, and thieves
All who have entered in contract with me

Now I get the sense you feel something is owed
Your carriage of carnage is starting to feel old?
But lest you forget your place in this earth, remember,
I give them forever, you just give 'em dirt.

Death and the devil sat under a tree
The Devil said “So, you thought you’d come for me?”
Death, now defeated, hung his head and looked down
I just hoped to wear a piece of your crown
He looked at the dirt and whispered this phrase
You are my master, I am your slave
