Devils and gods now that’s an idea
But if we believe that it’s they who decide
That’s the ultimate detractor of crimes
‘Cos devils and gods, they are you and I
Devils and gods, they are you and I
Devils and gods, safe and inside.

    General Commentit's like a part of a circle sitting in the park with guitar, singing that they can think about.

    General CommentThis song resonated very clearly with me but may resonate differenlty with someone else...thats the beauty of Tori. This songs speaks to explaining the truth around organized religion in our world....very succinctly. Man has created all sorts of religous beliefs to "explain" the human spiritual element. However, what man has done is falsify history and made up stories and used them to control and deceive. This is the ultimate crime that Tori speaks of...manipulation/control of our human spirits to yield power and control to religious organizations. Ultimately, there are no dieties above or below us. You and I are the devils and gods. We as humans create goodness or evil depending on your spirit within. I also think there is a message of personal accountability underlying all this as well.

    General Comment"Devils and gods, they are you and I, Devils and gods, safe and inside"

    that line says to me, in a MUCH less direct manner, what I've heard other people say before: "we are our own gods, we are our own devils."

    that's kind of what comes to my mind with this song. it seems that Tori is saying with it, "we are our own gods and devils, so why are people out there making war and blaming everybody else (including everybody else's gods and devils) for it instead of taking responsibility?"

    General CommentHere are the Extra lyrics. The song was really fleshed out when performed live:

    Rebels as Gods
    So Are they out there?
    one would surmise that this must be the case
    Some are not ok
    with what's taken place
    long ago
    A covenant made
    On earth long ago a covenant made that
    One could not rule
    but all would partake

    Devils can hide inside an idea
    Placed there by Gods for you to think like this
    If I were dead would he love me then?
    That then begins a secret death wish
    That then begins your secret death wish
    You'll gain his love
    but too cold to kiss

    Oh don't let this lady lay
    Don't make this lady lie
    No don't let this lady lay
    Don't make this lady lie

    Devils and Gods now that's an idea
    But if we believe that it's They who decide
    That's the ultimate detractor of crimes
    'cause Devils and Gods
    They are You and I
    Devils and Gods
    They are You and I
    Devils and Gods
    Safe and Inside
