Wash off those scabs dear
or fingernail pick them clean
Pray to all your long lost demons
and justify your means

Devil has a new shape
Devil has a new ride
Devil has a problem but he locks it up inside
Shit angel

Kids sure like the devil these days
and I'm the devil with the black dress on
Do you want to own me angel
cause I own you now you're gone

Kids sure like the devil these days
and I'm the devil with the black dress on
Do you want to hate me angel
cause I hate you now you're gone

Did you believe it cause I said so
Did you believe it was true
Did you believe it cause I said so angel
I sure lied to you

Did you believe it cause I said so
Did you believe it was true
I'm eternal and infernal and I sure lied to you
Shit angel

Kids sure like the devil these days
and I'm the devil with the black dress on
Do you want to own me angel
cause I own you now you're gone

Kids sure like the devil these days
and I'm the devil with the black dress on
Do you want to hate me angel
cause I hate you now you're gone

Good girl with the black eyes
Believe in future past
Everything that I want happens
See how long that lasts

Devil has a hot rod
Devil high on speed
Devil has a black dress
So her arms can bleed

Kids sure like the devil these days
and I'm the devil with the black dress on
Do you want to know me angel
cause I know you now you're gone

Kids sure like the devil these days
and I'm the devil with the black dress on
Do you want to hurt me angel
cause I'm hurting now you're gone

Go go go gone
Go go go gone
Go go go go go go go
Gone

    General Commenti like this song...it's all happy sounding. I just hate the end with the "g-g-g-go-go-go-gone." that's a little too silly for me.

    General Commentpersonally i bloody LOVE this song, because it has a big 'get up and go' feel about it. because basically its about getting over someone and turning all the negativity and pain into positivity and confidence. sorta like a 'u thought u were so much better than me, but i sucked u in and made u believe everything i said, and now even though uve got ur way and im hurting im still better than you and i still control you'

    General CommentWhee. This song reminds me of desperation, masochism, and deceit. It's great. Right up my alley. *coughs and pulls his sleeves over his arms*

    General CommentIt's an interesting song. No as deep as some of the others, but it's not bad. It's kinda like payback to the one she thought of as an "angel."
