“I wrote this song after hearing the story of The Fall. I was captivated by the idea that Eve was enticed by the devil, knowing full well where the source of all good comes from. This caught my attention because I see myself (and others) fall for the same tricks everyday. We all have hell to pay, and though Eve began the Fall, we are all still falling.”

- Brittany



I’ve got hell to pay, now won’t you come along? • It only hurts for a minute • He slithered through his teeth • She smiled and took a bite • It tasted good for a minute • She calls her lover and says, “take a bite my dear” • And this begins it all • This is how they fall • I’ve got hell to pay, now won’t you come along? • Its only hot for a minute • He whispered to the boy, who smiles and lays her down • It feels good for a minute • She cries out at night he’s no where to be found • And this continues on • This is how they fall • There’s always apples to take • It’s running through our veins • To make us love what we hate We’ve got hell to pay.
