"Speak of the Devil" as written by and Deryck Jason Whibley....
Trying to find a way, getting better every day
And I got you now, I'm not alone
All I need in this life is one
One to believe in

I've seen many a face
From young and too old
I've stolen their faith and I have broken their souls
Was here before Christ had forgave you your sins
And paid your price, and sealed your fate within
Days have come to an end
Today's the day that we meet again
The self-inflicted inebriation guilt never lies

I've been waiting for the chance to reunite this increment
Poison never hurt so good
So nice of you to speak of me, your closest friend and enemy
And only savior of masochists
Well, it's the dead-end, slave
From the altar to the grave
It's the last days of our life and faith, amen

Time, it's been so long and now there's nothing to say
I'm trying so hard to find the words to say
I'm tired of being, now I'm something I'm not
I can't believe and I never thought
Days would come to an end
Well, maybe someday we'll meet again
If ever that day never comes it would be too soon, my love

I've been waiting for the chance to nullify this increment
Pull the cord to detonate
So sick of you, don't speak of me, no represent of misery
And only savior of masochists
Well, it's the dead end, slave
From the altar to the grave
It's the last days of our life
Well, it's the dead end, slave
From the altar to the grave
It's the last days of our life and faith, amen

I've found a way, getting better every day
And I got you now, I'm not alone
All I need in this life is one
One thing to believe in

Trying to find a way, getting better every day
And I got you now, I'm not alone
All I need in this life is one
One thing to believe in

    General Commenti think its being sang from 2 differnt points of view like the first part:

    Trying to find a way
    getting better everyday
    and I got you now
    I'm not alone
    All I need in this life is one
    one thing to believe in

    that is being sung by someone that is being sent to hell, but the rest of the song is being sung by the devil saying he has given the person another chance and they blew it. but they are trying to plead their innocence. and they are trying to convince the devil to let them go free or whatever...

    General CommentSo i think this whole song is sung from two diffrent views, Deyrick(ik i spelled his name wrong) and The Devil. I'll list what i think:

    (Deyrick)
    Trying to find a way
    Getting better every day
    And I got you now I'm not alone
    All i need in this life is one,
    One thing to believe in
    (he needs something to believe in, finlially relizeing there is more to life)

    (the devil)
    I've seen many a face
    From young and too old
    I've stolen their faith and I have broken their souls
    Was here before Christ had forgave you your sins
    And paid your price and sealed your fate within
    Days have come to an end
    Today's the day that we meet again
    The self inflicted inebriation guilt never lies
    (the devils being all nice and saying look how good i am i was here before Christ)

    (devil)
    I've been waiting for the chance to reunite this sick romance
    Poison never hurt so good
    So nice of you to speak of me
    Your closest friend and enemy
    An only savior of masochists
    (I've got you in my hold, thank you for paintin me in a good light)

    (Deyrick)
    Well its the dead end slave
    From the alter to the grave
    It's the last days of our life
    The faith of men
    (Deyrick saying its hard to know what is right and what is true and what to believe in)

    (Deyrick)
    Time, its been so long
    And now there's nothing to say
    I'm trying so hard to find the words to say
    I'm tired of being, now I'm something I'm not
    I can't believe and I never thought
    Days would come to an end
    Well maybe someday we'll meet again
    If ever that day never comes
    It would be too soon
    My love
    (I never thought this is how everything would end, if i never had to meet you (devil) id b fine with that)

    (devil)
    I've been waiting for the chance to nullify this sick romance
    Pull the cord to detonate
    So sick of you don't speak of me
    No represent of misery
    An only savior of masochists
    (i tricked you and now your mine, dont speak of me, i dont care for you)

    Well its the dead end slave
    From the alter to the grave
    It's the last days of our life
    Well its the dead end slave
    From the alter to the gray
    It's the last days of our life
    The faith of men

    Now I've found a way
    Getting better every day
    And I got you now I'm not alone
    All I need in this life is one
    One thing to believe in

    Trying to find a way
    Getting better every day
    And I got you now I'm not alone
    All I need in this life is one
    One thing to believe in

    General CommentCorrections:
    Pull the cord to deadening = Pull the cord to detonate

    You're no weak savior = You're nobody's savior

    There might be a couple more I got wrong. But yeah, love this song.

    General CommentI love the chorus. :D

    Couple of words I think he's actually saying:
    "and paid your price and sealed your fate with them"
    I think its:
    "and paid your price and sealed your fate within"

    Other than that, you did a fantastic job, better than what I came up with ;D

    General CommentReply to drummerman91
    I think this CD has many elements of Blink-182. There is something about this song that strikes a chord with me like I' know this song from somewhere else. I plan to look through my Blink-192 and Sum 41 collection to see which songs are similar.

    Why can't users make corrections to lyrics posted? Too many lyrics on pages are incorrect on Songmeanings.
