Bruce Springsteen and the Devil

I was listening to Bruce Springsteen's Devils & Dust and there was this particular part of the song that really stuck out to me:  

What if what you do to survive
Kills the things you love
Fear's a powerful thing, baby
It can turn your heart black you can trust
It'll take your God filled soul
And fill it with devils and dust.

Interesting. That's all I have to say about that.
