Hail Mary a Thousand Times

Lying in my bed at night,
thoughts of fear and dread,
Can you see the demons on the wall or in my head.
Are they from my sin 
or from demons that are within, oh mamma.
I will pray to Jesus to take the pain away 
And say Hail Mary a thousand times, 
to put my fears at bay.
I donít understand why Jesus 
wonít hold my hand, oh mamma.

Mamma do you know, 
do you know the hell where my soul goes
Where my soul goes, mamma do you know.

All the things you told me, what I can and cannot do,
All the impossible hoops that you had me jump through,
 All I have is sin, where do I begin, oh mamma.
I will pray to Jesus to take the pain away 
And say Hail Mary a thousand times, 
to put my fears at bay.
I asked God to enter me, 
but the changes I could never see, oh mamma.

Mamma do you know,
do you know the hell where my soul goes 
Where my soul goes, mamma do you know.

I donít want this type of God,
I donít want this type of sin,
Iíve seen enough of Hell,
In the places that Iíve been
In the places that Iíve been, oh mamma.

A thousand Hail Maryís didnít do it,
A thousand Hail Maryís didnít get me through it.
Itís all the same, itís the devilís game, oh mamma.

Mamma donít you know, 
someone made the hell where our souls go.
