soul mates

'I can't help the things that I do in my dreams'
The little boy whispered to the ancient priest
'So then you're a sinner if you like it or not'
The old man warned the boy.

Fifteen years on, and it's clear he was right
I'm a creature of night, and try as I might
I'll never purge the devil from my thoughts,
I'm a sinner through and through.

Fastforward again and I'm happier now,
I know my purpose on Earth,
And the crimes I commit are in God's good name,
Though only the Devil knows their worth.
