Let My People Go
Diamanda Galás Lyrics


The devil has designed my death
And is waiting to be sure
Plenty of his black sheep died
Before he finds a cure

Oh Lord Jesus
Do you think I served my time?
The eight legs of the devil now
Are crawling up my spine

The firm hand
Of the devil now
Is rocking me to sleep
I force my blind eyes open Lord
But I'm sinking in the day

Oh Lord Jesus
Do you think I served my time?
The eight legs of the devil now
Are crawling up my spine

I go to sleep each evening now
Dreaming of the grave
I see the friends I used to know
Crawling up my leg

Oh Lord Jesus
Do you think I served my time?
The eight legs of the devil now
Are crawling up my spine

Oh Lord Jesus
Do you think I served my time?
The eight legs of the devil now
Are crawling up my spine

Oh Lord Jesus
Here's the news from the fires below
The eight legs of the devil will not
Let my people go

The devil has designed my death
And is waiting to be sure
Plenty of his black sheep died
Before he finds a cure

Oh Lord Jesus
Do you think I served my time?
The eight legs of the devil now
Are crawling up my spine

The firm hand
Of the devil now
Is rocking me to sleep
I force my blind eyes open Lord
But I'm sinking in the day

Oh Lord Jesus
Do you think I served my time?
The eight legs of the devil now
Are crawling up my spine

I go to sleep each evening now
Dreaming of the grave
I see the friends I used to know
Crawling up my leg

Oh Lord Jesus
Do you think I served my time?
The eight legs of the devil now
Are crawling up my spine

Oh Lord Jesus
Do you think I served my time?
The eight legs of the devil now
Are crawling up my spine

Oh Lord Jesus
Here's the news from the fires below
The eight legs of the devil will not
Let my people go

She was a friend in college in the 1970s. She's the real deal and a courageous artist.

Taro Keefe

The usual expressions of interest seem trite, yet i am truly expressing interest

My cat was scared of her and hid whenever I put it on. I considered it a high compliment to her.

Allan Hernandez

Lol!!

The way she channeled the pain and anger of her brother dying of AIDS and watching our government and the CDC do nothing is breathtaking and heart-wrenching.

Michelle Nocon

She's dark as hell but brilliant in my opinion!

Brock Worthington

I'm an atheist so i don't quite care for the imagery but it's still such a good song.

End Capitalism

Shut up you fucking nerd

ElliotWORLD

No. Her original performance was awesome. Biblical! She then came to be a gloomy piano bar performer and fruit-fly.

Dreamscape

She makes Lady Gaga look like a pea-sized shriveled hors d'oeuvre.
