"Devil's In the Detail" as written by Irwin Sparkes, Martin Skarendahl, Alan Sharland and Sam Swallows....
All alone I fought the cause,
Up against the clock that studied me.
It's the life anonymous,
Trusted with the lives of all of us.
I failed to see the flaws in the details I adored,

And played God.
I played God,
Played God.

Science lay his heavy head,
On the cold shoulder of consequence.
Rushed where angels dare not tread,
To force the hand of natures accidents.
I failed to see the flaws in the details I adored,

And played God.
I played God,
Played God.

Said; Oh my God, the devil's in the detail,
Oh Lord, I just didn't look there.
We looked so long, we looked so hard.
We looked so long, we looked so hard.

Said; Oh my God, the devil's in the detail,
Oh Lord, I just didn't look there.
We looked so long, we looked so hard.
I looked so hard and for so long.

Said; Oh my God, the devil's in the detail,
Oh God, I'm pretty sure we looked there.
I tried so hard, and for so long,
I tried so hard, and for so long.

Said; Oh the devil's in the detail,
The devil's in the detail.
