Oh Lord, have mercy on me
Please pull me from this heat
My hands are burning and I can't feel my feet
This wasn't how my life was to be
Bum bum bum bum, Oh no
Bum bum bum bum, Oh no

I'm going down with the Devil's thunder, yeah
I'm going down
So throw me some water
Yeah, Throw me some water
Water, oh no

You said last time in old Quebec
Your child of comfort, of guilt and regret
It's no wonder you feel you're going down
So I buck up, and back on my feet
And the money is good and revenge is sweet
But I still wonder about me
Bum bum bum bum, oh no
Bum bum bum bum, oh no

I'm going down with the Devil's thunder, yeah
I'm going down
So throw me some water
Yeah, Throw me some water
Water, Oh no

They say sing for your supper
But they say sing for your pain
But it won't bring the rain,
No it won't bring the rain
No no
Oh no no

I'm going down with the Devil's thunder, yeah
I'm going down
So throw me some water
Yeah, Throw me some water
Water, Oh no
Bum bum bum bum, oh no
Bum bum bum bum, oh no

    General CommentThis song is about getting to a point in your life where you can no longer ignore how far from your principles you've wandered. It starts with a simple impetus- revenge or a bit of money. But then it goes so far as to make you wonder where it became so bad, when you started to need someone to throw you some water to make you more comfortable in your trip to the Devil. But I think there's also a feeling that it's reversible, if you only realize soon enough.

    General CommentI'd gotten a bit of research that sent me in the direction of the story of Gilles De Rais, once known as the terrible psychopathic killer of children, years after he'd been a noble soldier fighting side by side with Joan de Arc.

    After further research, and fast forward over 550 years, the information was completely debunked, found that he'd probably been framed to confiscate his wealth and in 1992 he was exonerated by a team of specialists in religion, politics and history.

    Acknowledging the first general comment, the story of De Rais would follow those feelings and emotions expressed within the song.
