"Zee Deveel" as written by Ben Kenney, Brandon Charles Boyd, Michael Aaron Einziger, Christopher E Kilmore and Jose Anthony Pasillas Ii....
Nice car where'd ya get your ride
A trophy? badge of honor? over compensation?
Price tags! advertise yer pride
Since when did what we paid for colored cloth
Gage our gravity?

You should be careful what you wish for
Cause everyone of us has the devil inside
You should be careful what you wish for
Cause all of what amounts becomes you

Nice watch man d'ya got the time
There's never enough and it always goes too slow

You should be careful what you wish for
Cause everyone of us has the devil inside
You should be careful what you wish for
Cause all of what amounts becomes you

Yeah you got'cha little world
Picture perfect its a pearl
Now go and try to sleep
In the bed you made

    General CommentMan did they rip off the bassline from Primus' "Duchess and the Proverbial Mindspread" and made a guitar riff out of it. I liked the song, but just wanted to point it out to you Incubus fans. Hell Incubus used to similiar to Primus back in the day.

    General CommentMaybe it's a matter of perception, but I see paying homage to Primus and/or Mr. Bungle. These are a huge inspiration to Incubus, aren't they?

    As far as the alleged stab at The Roots go: Sorry dude, but I don't buy it.. :)

    General CommentI agree that this is an homage (maybe a ripoff) of Primus and their sound. I have only heard a couple Incubus tracks but I know my Primus. The beginning of this song sounds too much like "The Duchess and the Proverbial Mindspread" for comfort. But whatever, I like "Zee Deveel" anyway.

    General CommentI think this song is just saying that possesions aren't everything, like, you want all the money in the world? becareful what you wish for, because money doesn't buy happiness
