"Something Diabolical" as written by James M. Franks and Harry Dean....
Eventide rise for ritual
With the thrill of a kill vengefully the engine will
Roar forth steer the dead leave forced
Driven by fear shift gears veer towards
The foolishly equipped swift these
Failed bids breathed taillights from the crypt
Reflect upon the way beyond redemption
Let the necronometer beckon for the destined
Blessed when first lent sin then condemned to bear the burden
Of this curse the consequence of which can never be averted
Each tormented attempt that is made in vain
To evade this debt which is certain to be paid
Without question is met with a counterclocked surge
In reverse as if backmasked words of the black mass were
All heard by a clutch engaged
Over trails blazed to the western gates

Heaven may be running on empty yet the devil rides
Heaven may be running on empty yet the devil rides
Heaven may be running on empty yet the devil rides
Hell burns by angel turns her pillow to the cooler side

Something diabolical

Idle hands are bound for the
Damned once sam went down to georgia
Speed was forged of the divine salt
Mined from the vaults of flame by the lost
Named as those sought as faults rests beneath
The wrong that was spawned from the tired screech
Of essence halted engulfed in the scent of exhaustion
A false witness with the sensed end is brought
To bended knees when abandoned belief in
The mephistophelian plea for wicked unleashed sends
Heed to reap grim an infernally decreed
Reposession vested in the fallen creed called on to retrieve
Meed with the fueled intention of deprived intervention
The thundered calm that comes from the rattle of descension
Numbs the panicked from a havoc that reeks of oil
Barreling down this mortal coil

Heaven may be running on empty yet the devil rides
Heaven may be running on empty yet the devil rides
Heaven may be running on empty yet the devil rides
Hell burns by angel turns her pillow to the cooler side

Something diabolical

Tonight belongs to him
Tonight belongs to him
Tonight belongs to him
Tonight belongs to him
To him
To him
To him

    General CommentThis is my favorite song... Next to any HIM song.

    Ville's voice is sexy and having J.Pop and Ville in one song... it can't get much better!!! I think I found my empty heaven. XP

    On another note, it's a good song as well.

    General CommentNever really got into HIM, but I still dig the song.

    I remember being half asleep when I first listened to the cd. What roused me from my sleep was the Shakespeare prop/quote/whatever. It made me smile.

    General CommentOh I'm not sure about it making fun of LP, I don't see where that fits.

    Anyways. "Diabolical" means, "Showing the cunning or ingenuity or wickedness typical of a devil" which explains why Ville is in it, his material is usually about Love/Death and with some "evil" influence, therefore we'll go with the definition "wickedness typical of a devil" So Ville sings "Heaven may be running on empty yet the devil rides
    Hell burns by angel turns her pillow to the cooler side" and then sings "Something diabolical" shortly after, so he's obviously saying that what he just stated is something "evil" or "wicked" There's alot of lyrics in the song and it's hard to figure out exactly what the songs about..ehh, I think I just pointed out the obvious so I'll just end here but that's pretty much all I have.

    General CommentAnti-Hero: If you listen to a song like 'In the End' by LP, you hear the same kind of vocals. If you wear headphones or something you hear the vocals shifting from left to right, just like in this song. And J. Pop is definitly trying to do the same vocal style. The chorus in this BHG song is like most LP-songs I've heard..

    (I'm not a fan of LP, but I've heard some songs. If I'm wrong I hope someone with better knowledge of them try to compare LP-songs with this one)
