"I Saw the Devil Last Night" as written by Robert Theberge, Zachary Tipton, James Firebaugh and Derek Schulz....
I backed myself into his
little house of burning corpses
Did I stay there?
What did I do?
Made myself a seat for two!
What did we both talk about?
Judgment day and roses, baby?
No!
We spoke of dancing
in a burning atmosphere

As the darkness crawled up my neck
I know I saw the devil last night

More hands turned on the clock
I listened with full attention
What did I hear?
Did he say I'm better off
Without the light?
Asked me if I was happy...
My mind quickly turned around
After some time
I decided on the other side

As the darkness crawled up my neck
I know I saw the devil last night

Just a wondering fool
With a head full of gloom
Didn't have a path to follow anyway...
Take my eyes and my soul
If I'm glad then I'm sold
Didn't have a path to follow anyway...

After I left his house
I had my fill of burning answers
Was I satisfied?
Was I justified?
Some say the darkness chose me
Some say it's the other way around
Whichever way I am happy with
what I've found

As the darkness crawled up my neck
I know saw the devil last night

Just a wondering fool
with a head full of gloom
Didn't have a path to follow anyway...
Take my eyes and my soul
If I'm glad then I'm sold
Didn't have path to follow anyway...
