  1. [Intro: Eamon]
    I've been working for the Devil too long
    I've been working for the Devil too long

    [Verse 1: Vinnie Paz]
    You see, I preyed on things and then I preyed on them
    And I took it to the corner, got paid off then
    The destruction wasn't even on my radar then
    And my heart was black, it was Darth Vadar then
    It was jumbs to the bums, G packs to the OGs
    The money came to me, I sat back with my Co-Ds
    Money changed hands and moved on like a cold breeze
    And I ain't give a fuck about death or an OD
    Mommy always in my head, saying that I didn't care
    But I ain't going back to being broke like this was yester-year
    The plan is to try to be out in less than a year
    No drugs, no thugs, no weapons in here
    You see I'm trying to get out ma, but I feel trapped
    What employer gonna hire me when I sell crack?
    I'm not fully rehabilitated, I fell back
    And regret is a muhfucker, run, tell that

    [Hook: Eamon]
    I've been working for the Devil too long
    I've been working for the Devil too long
    Tempt us, lead us to the edge, watch the wise turn into fools
    The greatest lie ever been told is the one closest to truth

    I've been working for the Devil too long
    I've been working for the Devil too long
    I'm gone

    [Verse 2: Vinnie Paz]
    [Lyrics from: https://lyrics.az/vinnie-paz/the-cornerstone-of-the-corner-store/the-ghost-i-used-to-be.html]
    You see, I preyed on things and then I preyed on y'all
    My attempt was to never get paid off y'all
    When I was young I saw politicians of all stripes
    But all I saw was lies in they eyes and that's not right
    I said, "When I get older, I'm going to change shit"
    Take the welfare system and rearrange shit
    Years later, I'm quietly moving up the ladder
    Trying hard, realizing that it doesn't matter
    My wife told me, "Baby, money doesn't buy elections
    Money doesn't buy votes, it just buys attention"
    I kissed her on the head and told her she was right
    But she couldn't understand and see the coldness of the plight
    Couldn't understand why it's so cold for me at night
    Cause political bribery just hold me in a vice
    But there's always implicitly some string that's attached
    By a muhfucker think he got wings on his back
    You ain't an angel, probably working for the Devil
    The nightmare of money, [?], would be a rebel
    I did all of you dirty, so I should've gone to jail
    I took your fucking government and put it up for sale
    Look, American democracy has been hacked
    By the corrupt paradigm, that's a supreme fact
    And every word that I said in this song
    I've been working for the Devil too long and now I'm gone

    [Hook: Eamon]
    I've been working for the Devil too long
    I've been working for the Devil too long
    Tempt us, lead us to the edge, watch the wise turn into fools
    The greatest lie ever been told is the one closest to truth

    I've been working for the Devil too long
    I've been working for the Devil too long
    I'm gone
