"The Devil" as written by and Mikael Thomas Lagerblad Johan Ernst Lindstrand....
If his patience had its way, would that light come in?
Would they send him back to Texas; weathered face and crooked grin.
Where they sing, "Eeee." Oh!

Drives up to the next seat and onto the roots.
Drinking up the village,
And, drinking a little more
Eeee. Oh!

Found you the bed with a hammer by your side.
Sleeping out the day
Well, it's pounding on your head.
Where they sing, "Eeee." Oh!


There's movement in the air
Just above the neck.
Bodies overturned
And its been like this for days
Well, they sing, "Eeee."
Oh!

get back, motherfucker
pack your bags, motherfucker
move on, motherfucker
you're a dumb motherfucker
(oh, lord, where'd you go?)

if the devil had his way, would that light come in?
would they send you back, send you back, send you back?

    General CommentIt is, it's even better live, though! Seen them live 3 times now... including the Pines, they play them every time.

    General Commentwow, this is so far from being correct. I have no idea where who ever posted these lyrics got them from but anyone that's heard this song knows that these are not the right ones. I'll see what I can do for corrections.
