"Evil" as written by and Darren Jones....
I wish I could go back
Go back in time
I wish I could go back
Back in time

I would have warned you
Those people are evil
And it's hard to understand
I never understand

I wish I could go back
Go back in time
But no one ever really can
Go back in time

Oh, I would have shown you
Those people are evil
And they'll hurt you if they can
I never understand
Understand

(It is from the embryonic)

    General CommentWhat a great track. Before performing this live, Wayne always says that it is a song about animal testing, and the people who abuse animals that way. And if you listen to the song with that idea in mind, you can definitely hear it. But I actually like both of the other ideas, that it's about people in the speaker's future (this is how I heard it the first time), and that it's about the nature of evil (and people) itself.

    General CommentScary.

    The music is so eerie and beautiful that the meaning suggests that he is yearning to warn someone that people in the now present are evil and he regrets not being able to have the ability to warn that person. He could be referring to himself in the third person, too, as though the "you" is himself in the past, and he wishes he could warn himself about evil people on the horizon that he got mixed up in the recent past.

    General Commentbest song on the album, almost sounds to me like a B-side to All we have is now. Its about a person attempting and failing to explain why people are evil "It is from the embryonic" suggests that it may be that all people are inherently evil. I also like how the simplicity of the beat parallels the seeming simplicity of the song but like the lyrics and their meaning, it grows and becomes something greater and more intricate.
