The moon shines bright in the desert night
The other side of a clear sunlight
The other side of a character
Comes out to play before the day

The devil follows out his plans
And makes his work for idle hands
Neatly packaged bird has flown
The devil takes care of his own

Clouds now greeting this aeroplane
Tearing across the empty sky
A bomb implant in the luggage hold
The devil takes care of his own

    Song MeaningThis is about Pan Am Flight 103 which was brought down by a bomb over Lockerbie, Scotland in December 1988, killing all 259 people on board and 11 people on the ground. John Lydon and his wife Nora were booked to be on that flight, but missed it due to delays.
