TITLE: The Backslide

This is another Metal song in which I tried a more vulnerable approach. Really, the chorus was inspired by my uncle, and I just kinda wrote some verses around it. I didn't really put alot of thought into the words themselves. Alot of it is really simple speech. It's not like I said anything really profound. Does that hurt the song at all?
Will you be there to comfort me
After a long day’s work?
Or will you meet me at the door?
Tell me that I’m a jerk?
Will you be warm and loving?
Will you be cold and numb?
Will you be home at all, Love?
Will you be there to save me from…

THE DARK SIDE! THE BACKSLIDE! THE FAST RIDE! (Into Hell!)
THE DARK SIDE! THE BACKSLIDE! THE FAST RIDE! (Into Hell!)

She was the first woman I asked…
She told me she would have my back.
I took this as a foregone fact…
Looking back, I have to laugh.
I’ve got nobody here for me
Should the infection run me through…
This disease taking over me
Feels like I’m going back to…

THE DARK SIDE! THE BACKSLIDE! THE FAST RIDE!
THE DARK SIDE! THE BACKSLIDE! THE FAST RIDE!
THE DARK SIDE! THE BACKSLIDE! THE FAST RIDE! (Into Hell!)
THE DARK SIDE! THE BACKSLIDE! THE FAST RIDE! (Into Hell!)

So now it’s me and only me.
I’ll just dismiss this dark disease…
Act like it never happened.
Pretend there was no Fall…
This devil doesn’t haunt me.
I’m in control of him!
I abstain from everything else
Except my chosen sin!

I feel the heavens crying!
My dieing soul can see
The wingtips of the angels.
They’re coming down for me!
To save me from my own self!
To save my place with Him!
‘nd I don’t need nobody else!
Come save me deep within…

The dark side… the backslide… the fast ride…
The dark side… the backslide… the fast ride…
THE DARK SIDE! THE BACKSLIDE! THE FAST RIDE! (Into Hell!)
THE DARK SIDE! THE BACKSLIDE! THE FAST RIDE! (Into Hell!)

I’M NOT GOING TO HELL!
I’M NOT GOING TO HELL!
I’M NOT GOING TO HEEELLLL!
I’M NOT GOING TO HELL!

Yes, it would be so pleasant!
My life would feel so whole
If God sent me an angel!
My own, to guard my soul…
But I’ve got FIVE FOR FIGHTING…
Five more in the OTHER SLEEVE!
And I’ve got FIVE THOUSAND ANGELS
And ONE GOD watching over me!

No dark side… no backslide… no fast ride…
No dark side… no backslide… no fast ride…

NO DARK SIDE! NO BACKSLIDE! NO FAST RIDE!
NO DARK SIDE! NO BACKSLIDE! NO FAST RIDE!
NO DARK SIDE! NO BACKSLIDE! NO FAST RIDE! (Into Hell!)
NO DARK SIDE! NO BACKSLIDE! NO FAST RIDE! (Into Hell!)

I’M NOT GOING TO HELL!
I’M NOT GOING TO HELL!
I’M NOT GOING TO HEEELLLL!
I’M NOT GOING TO HELL!
