"The Whistler" as written by and Jacob Aaron Smith....
This time is different
It's not like the times before
I crossed my heart, that I won't kill no more
Jesus watch over me, keep my anger at home
You better bless these wicked hands, cause they got a mind of their own

Don't go downtown

Devil whispers in my ear, "It's time your your curtain call."
So I dress myself on up with alcohol
Step aside, step aside, oh let the whistler through
There really ain't no help at all for folks like me and you

Don't go downtown
Don't go downtown

Get your god damn hands up, don't you look at me
No one's dyin' here alone
Well I came to get it on
Let's get it on

This time is different
It's not like the times before
I crossed my heart, that I won't kill no more

    General CommentAnother great song by The White Buffalo – Oh Darlin, What Have I Done has almost the same meaning.

    So, this song's about evil spirits inside of you, that makes you a different person, a monster. You are trying so hard to keep it inside of you, but sometimes it doesn't work. Some thing happened and it blows your mind, you can't control yourself and do the shit that will make you regret for the rest of your life... Often such a crazy situations happens when you're in relations with girl, you probably love her, but can't stop doubting and settle down. Then you make huge mistakes...

    Actually, "The Whistler" is murderer, character of the same named American radio mystery drama.
