Lord Have Mercy on My Soul Lyrics

Now there's somethin' I'd like to talk to you about
at this particular moment, and that's about the one
thing that we won't be able to do together. Unless we
all become as one. And if we all become as one, then
we can walk thru it together. Now I ain't walked thru
it all the way yet. But there was a time I walked
into it, and I had to go into it alone, that's this
place called the Halls of Karma. Now when you go into
the Halls of Karma the way I did, I don't know, it
might have been hallucination, but I think it was
real. You see I felt the presence of the two energies;
the positive and the negative; of God and the Devil,
however you want it. And they were pullin' and
decidin' and wondering what to do with my soul, and I
couldn't take this at this moment 'cause I had to come
back to be with you people to do a thing and I proved
to 'em, in bargainin' with 'em that I had a thing to
do for the good of all of us. Out of this bargain,
the devil, he got my body for the good in his needs
while I'm here on earth and the Lord, he's got my mind
for the good of the universe and for the good of man.
And they both got me in between 'cause they both got
my soul. So the next time I come up, I want the Lord
to, Please have Mercy, On My Soul
I've walked through the Halls of Karma
I shook hands with both the Devil and God
They turned my eyes to the inside to see
Where my energies have gone
Yes I've run with both all through my life
I've respected and reflected them both
Yes the sympathy of God as he looked
At my life the excitement of the Devil as we talked

So Lord have mercy
Lord have mercy on my soul

The Devil said, "scratch my back and I'll
Scratch your back for sure"
So you have done all these sins for him
My heart could not be pure
I found out what means more to me
Than anything on this earth
To be ready for my judgement day
Ready to face the truth
So Lord have mercy
Lord have mercy on my soul

I hope I've done the right things
For both your sake and mine
I preach in what I live for
My only fear is fear of time
I wanted to look logical
to both my "Maker" and his host
But this trip of life must be complete
or my cards will be lost.

So Lord Please Have Mercy on My Soul
