When the devil holds court

On account of it being of no account
no amount of accounting can mount
up the debts that are due
and you’ll think
no
no
it can’t be true
my debts are paid in full.

well
well
the books that they hold
dwell on your past
shadows cast
and the last things you did.

so
no account being of no amount
there’s nothing to worry about.
