"DDevil" as written by Daron Malakian, Serj Tankian, Shavo Odadjian and John Dolmayan....
Plagiarized existence exist
Among the writers of the word
Shake your spear at Shakespeare
Shake your spear at Shakespeare

Loud and noisy
Strong refrigerators
Gaining independence
Gaining independence

Stupid people do stupid things
Smart people outsmart each other
Then themselves, then themselves
Then themselves, then themselves

Take me down there
Photographic relapse
People feeding frenzy
The devil is so lovely

My blue moon rivets in exits
Forewarned customary spirits
By myself, by myself
By myself, by myself

Take me down there
Photographic relapse
People feeding frenzy
The devil is so lovely

Take me down there
Photographic relapse
People feeding frenzy
The devil is so lovely

    General CommentOK, I might be way off to the real meaning of the song, but Im just going to write my opinion and I sure as hell though alot about this.

    To start this, i am first going to tell you that the title is not "Ddevils" its "Ddevil". The reason its "Ddevil" with 2 D's its because all of their songs are produced by "Ddevils Music" so i just think thats where they got the idea of putting 2 D's on the title.

    The booklet thingy that comes with the cd has song dedication/meanings after the lyrics, and for this song it says "-for those that control the central nervous system, control society, and the world"
    I think this song is just an example of what he means when he says "for those who control the world", and it has to do with religion. At first, what i say isnt going to make any sense but in the end i think you will be able to put the pieces together.

    "Plagiarized existence exist, among the writers of the word" - Plagiarized means when you Copy something (idea or writing) and then use it as your own. He is saying that the existence of plagiarize exists in between the people who wrote the word itself. So into simple words, the church/temple or whatever isnt the house of god or anything, they are just using him to get what they want.
    "Shake your spear at Shakespeare" - People are getting pissed at the people who started this all. (shit man, really hard to explain)

    I am still trying to understand whats with the "loud and noisy, strong refrigerators, gainings independence" but im working on that. And if you have any idea how that can be related to my opinion please post it.

    "Stupid people do stupid things" - He is saying that people belive whatever they are told. For example, just because Jesus or anyone else said they were God's son, that doesnt really make it so, but they belived it.
    "Smart people outsmart eachother" - These are the people that said they were god, these are the people who were smarter then anyone else and knew that the Stupid would belive them.
    "Then themselves, then themselves" - The smart people lied so much that they dont even know the truth anymore.

    "Take me down there, photographic relapse, people feeding frenzy" - He wants to slip back inot the years when all this started and see who feeded this bullshit into peoples mind.

    "My blue moon rivets in exits, forewarned customary spirits" - This is the hardest line i had to think about on this song. I got a littel help from InSaNiTyX. I am still 50% i am wrong but you know what, TRY FINDING IT OUT YOURSELF! Ok what he is saying is that all this new stuff thats written like the bible is way in the back of the line, he belives the usual stuff based on trdition, something that was always done!

    Finally finished, Instead of doing my Home Work or anything like that, i deal with this crap that no one is going to care about!
    And by the way, this isnt my favorite song, PLUCK is, so go check out the lyrics for that song.

    General Commentprobably this won't help much in the way of the meaning, I don't know, but I think the shakespeare's weed has nothing to do with it. I think they mean that Shakespeare is so admired and he's so famous for his works but there are many people who believe that Will never wrote all that but Christopher Marlowe (another writer and friend of his) did. they do have some proof for that theory and hints from shakespear himself. so there you get the plagiarized-existence-writers-of-the-word-thing.
    PS: I love that part where he laughs and then does that grunt, sounds like Steve Urkel

    General CommentMaybe the snort before means that

    My blue moon rivets in exits,
    Forewarned customary spirits,
    By myself, by myself,
    By myself, by myself,

    is from the devils point of view.

    General CommentThis is about a little bunny rabbit who used to smoke weed and get drunk with another little bunny rabbit

    That`s what Daron says before the song in several performances...

    General CommentApparently, this brilliant piece of musicianship is lyrically based on life thru the eyes of a dog (!)
