"Another Night in London" as written by Bradley Fafara, John Boecklin, Jeffrey Kendrick, Jonathan Miller and Michael Spreitzer....
Laying down the law, listen to the hammer
Mouth of madness, watch the wicked gather
Streets of stone, underneath the grey skies
Nights come, they speak of devils in disguise

It takes people like you, to make people like me
It take people like me to make like you

Let's start a riot, another night in London
Let's start a riot, while the night is still young

Let's start a riot, another night in London
Let's start a riot, while the night is still young

While the night is still young!

Shadows of light, not a glimpse of the sun
Going 'til morning, 'til the battles won
Streets of stone, underneath the grey skies
Nights come, they speak of devils in disguise

It takes people like you, to make people like me
It take people like me to make like you

Let's start a riot, another night in London
Let's start a riot, while the night is still young

Let's start a riot, another night in London
Let's start a riot, while the night is still young

Shots fired, the sound of a new generation
No future, no revolution

For you!
For you!
For me!
No fucking revolution you!

Let's start a riot, another night in London
Let's start a riot, while the night is still young

Let's start a riot, another night in London
Let's start a riot, while the night is still young

Shots fired, fights!
While the night is still young!

    General CommentI think this song is about the whole "cult following" Metal bands get from their music and fame.

    "Laying down the law, listen to the hammer
    Mouth of madness, watch the wicked gather
    Streets of stone, underneath grey skies
    Nights come, they speak of devils in disguise"

    i think the "law" are the band's message and values, and fans follow them almost unthinkingly even if they seem strange and out of place ("mouth of madness"). The wicked are obviously the fans that gather for concerts and chant the bands name and shout support for them "they speak of devils in disguise".

    I think all this is summed up pretty nicely by the lines
    "It takes people like you to make people like me
    It takes people like me to make like you"
    about how the band makes fans act a certain way but the band is only influential because of their fans.

    The rest of the song goes on to describe a riot started by the fans.
    "Let's start a riot, while the night is still young...
    Shots fired, fights!
    While the night is still young! "

    The album as a whole i think is a very introspective album; looking back on the past of Devildriver and the influence they have and the hardships they overcame to be the band they are today.

    General CommentI think it might actually just be about riots in London. There have been quite a few.
