No Demons

lyrics

It was a hot summers day in a suburban town,
Sticking to the tarmac, the sun beatin down,
It must have been a weekend cause he was allowed
to take his three wheeler and cycle around.
Stay near the house be careful by the road
don't go past the street sign is what he was told.
He can't be that old maybe four, five or six,
His whole life ahead of him, he's happy with this.

LIFE IS SO INNOCENT, LIFE IS SO SWEET,
HE AINT GOT NO DAEMONS, NO DEVIL IS HE.

From a working class family with no pressure from church.
No bounds by religion for all that its worth.
Just started school, play time and crafts.
He got his first big book on simplest maths.
He knows the difference from make believe and real
Doesn't play plastic kitchen plastic kitchen, Helps his mam cook a meal.
The oven is he knows not to touch
but he still burns his fingers cause of curiosities thrust.

LIFE IS SO INNOCENT, LIFE IS SO SWEET,
HE AINT GOT NO DAEMONS, NO DEVIL IS HE.

Then came a day, when he was nearly seven.
He told his mam “nanas gone to heaven”
How did he know this? he was outside.
When she got the phone call, He didn't know that she cried.

LIFE IS SO INNOCENT, LIFE IS SO SWEET,
HE AINT GOT NO DAEMONS, NO DEVIL IS HE.
