"Devil's Concubine" as written by and Baney Forrest....
brought new attention for the media
it's like seeing pretty new burdens
with a musket grin
we can trigger your favourite sin
like seeking new burdens
for lazy guards in watch towers

bring us to courthouse control
dental records prove
only if our tongues are cut off
then we will be less of a disease

we found religion
in splitting teeth at equivocate ideals
of the virtue of a man
a simple tithe in the spirit of
how we deem you
newsprint exploiter
we all get lonely
i guess your portfolio did too

a good fire celebrate
a far call can't erase
follow it out
let's burn it out

with a quick fix stare
they tell us to be obscene
they don't care who believes

ears pinned back
we've travelled far
looks like we got ourselves an interpreter
and it's time to imitate
being one of a kind
won't someone celebrate you?
illegally instate
the burn
of a world
gone down in a flame
it's our brilliant rise to fame the burden
of what we thought was a man
we'll burn your stock down
we get a sick euphoria
burn the devil's concubine

    General Commentno comments!?!?!?
    this band is pretty amazing!
    i just picked up the album today and love every song on it.
    so influential.
    question tho?
    are they a christian band.
    Because alot of their songs talk about finding religion or devil or christ.

    General CommentThey definitely started as a christian band back in the late 90's. But, by the time their third album "The Satellite Years" (many people think this was their first album) was released, they were steering away from that direction.

    Many Lineup changes had already taken place at that point (including Jay Forrest replacing Doug Venable on vocals). I read an interview with them a couple of years later (probably the "A Types" era) in which they stated that they were no longer a "Christian" band. However, at this point, there was only one original member still in the band (Josh, the guitarist).
