When is common sense too much to ask?
And when did consequences get left in the past?
Is it just bad habits or a typical script?
Is it all big plans and a hit and a miss?
Can say my influence becomes my design?
Or is science and cigarettes my compromise?
I don't know but I'm blaming everyone else,
Just as long as I never put the blame on myself.

Cause I know, I've wasted way too many times
Living way too many lies.
How can this be my fault, I'm always right?
There's a devil in my DNA.
Programmed parts from all the starts
Or is there no one else to blame
For my tangled up gears and my turnstile jobs?
Fact is I'm just a living sum of all my parts.

When do instructions come with a catch?
And when is self-destruction just proven as a fact?
Is it blind faith or the family name?
Is it all by chance or completely ingrained?
Can I say its an imbalance of the chemical kind,
Or is my environment that becomes my only disguise?
I don't know but I'm blaming everyone else,
Just as long as I never put the blame on myself.

Cause I know, I've wasted way too many times
Living way too many lies.
How can this be my fault, I'm always right?
There's a devil in my DNA.
Programmed parts from all the starts
Or is there no one else to blame
For my tangled up gears and my turnstile jobs?
Fact is I'm just a living sum of all my parts.

There's a devil in my DNA.
Programmed parts from all the starts
Or is there no one else to blame
For my tangled up gears and my turnstile jobs,
Every one of my fears and for my fatal flaws,
Everything that I've battled and haven't out chased?
'Cause you know there's a devil in my DNA.
'Cause you know there's a devil in my DNA.
'Cause you know there's a devil in my DNA.
'Cause you know there's a devil in my DNA.

    My InterpretationNo comments about this song? Really?

    I take this as his ego having a hard time accepting his personal failures, but also as him realizing that he is who he is due to the many influences around him. And then again, maybe that's just another way of him shifting blame from himself.
