DEVIL Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
I'm pickin', I'm pickin', I'm pickin' I pick up the phone
You said it yourself you're scared of being alone
You said it yourself that you can crack the code
But the static you hear automatically keeps you exposed on your own
I hope you're ready, steady, smashing through the levy
The drama, the trauma, don't play the prima donna
My god, you said it yourself that you would never stop
Until you felt the needle drop
Verse 2
Now you pack your bags
The party's such a drag
And everyone can tell that you're poisoning the well
But there are no mistakes
Except what you create
You need to know your place
Verse 3
'Cause it's about to get heavy (heavy, heavy, heavy, heavy)
It's about to be on (heavy, heavy, heavy, heavy)
Yeah, I'm bangin' slingin' napalm (heavy, heavy, heavy, heavy)
So nobody move
'Cause I was sent to warn you
The devil's in the next room
Verse 4
The silence, the silence
The blinding ultra violence
Knockin' at your door
Pacin' back and forth
What now? (What now)
The whispers and the screams
The stereotypical profiling ritual
Vicious and obscene
Verse 5
So now you pack your bags
The party's such a drag
And everyone can tell that you're poisoning the well
But there are no mistakes
Except what you create
You need to know your place
Verse 6
'Cause it's about to get heavy (heavy, heavy, heavy, heavy)
It's about to be on (heavy, heavy, heavy, heavy)
Yeah, I'm bangin' slingin' napalm (heavy, heavy, heavy, heavy)
So nobody move
'Cause I was sent to warn you
The devil's in the next room
Verse 7
'Cause it's about to get heavy (heavy, heavy, heavy, heavy)
It's about to be on (heavy, heavy, heavy, heavy)
Yeah, I'm bangin' slingin' napalm (heavy, heavy, heavy, heavy)
So nobody move
'Cause I was sent to warn you
The devil's in the next room
Verse 8
(Heavy, heavy, heavy, heavy)
Yeah the devil's in the next room (heavy, heavy, heavy, heavy)
Yeah the devil's in the next room (heavy, heavy, heavy, heavy)
So nobody move
'Cause I was sent to warn you
The devil's right beside you
