"Devil in the City" as written by Jonathan Alexander Letcher Albright, Michael Craig Deming, Ryan Ackerman Downing, Jonathan David Owens, John Wesley Chester and Meagan Beth Plummer....
There was a devil in the city of angels.
His made his home from a movie scene.
There, amongst the grit and brush,
He built a family.
He was waiting for a message;
Listening to his radio speak.
I was told what he heard there
And now I swear I'll never let him speak to me.

I'm coming down fast
And I'll get to the bottom
By the time I'm dead
I'm coming down fast
I'm sure I'll see him there,
I'm sure I'll see him again.

All he wanted was his name in the lights,
So he made his life into a movie scene.
He took revenge like in the old west
And watched the news as it spread east.
They were waiting for his message,
Listening close to him speak.
There were those who were sure he was the cure
But I swear he was the disease.

I'm coming down fast
And I'll get to the bottom
By the time I'm dead
I'm coming down fast
I'm sure I'll see him there,
I'm sure I'll see him again.

There was a devil in the city of angels
And I swear to God that he's coming for me.
Helter Skelter!
Give me some shelter!
Somebody better save my soul!
There was a devil in the city of angels
And I swear to God that he's coming for me.

I'm coming down fast
And I'll get to the bottom
By the time I'm dead
I'm coming down fast
I'm sure I'll see him there,
I'm sure I'll see him again.
