I met the devil one night in the woods
Beat-down and broken, I would have fled if I could
The devil offered bread and offered beer
He offered his shoulder and he offered his ear
He nodded and sighed, pretending to care
But the look of his eyes showed no feeling in there
I let the devil seduce me, it’s true
Yes, I let him distract me, and I liked it too
I let the devil come into my bed
let him conquer my heart, let him scramble my head
I confess to my choice. He never would.
Nothing’s ever his fault, he’s misunderstood
I loved the devil, whose heart knows no bounds
For the one in the mirror, the pond looking down
I held the devil. He sucked my bones clean
Then he choked on the marrow and blamed it on me
Yes, I know the devil, he told me his names
One day he’s Aristotle, the next Jesse James
You best believe him and follow his path
Or else you will meet with his delusional wrath.
I walked the devil to the dark wood’s edge
Where a sudden light broke through the sinister hedge
I heard the devil beg, please don’t you go!
Stay safe with me in the trees, safe cloaked in shadow.
The devil swore it a trick, a cruel prank you see
No one in the light could ever love me
He’s the only true mate this wretch could know
I’d be all alone if I left him for that glow
I laughed at the devil and ran ahead
I would rather be lonely, I’d rather be dead!
