"The Evil Has Landed" as written by and Joshua Michael Homme Dean Anthony Fertita....
Going on a living spree
Plenty wanna come with me
You don't wanna miss your chance
Near-life experience
Faces making noise
Say, be good girls and boys
It ain't half empty or full
You can break the glass, or drink it all
Dig it

Close
Come close
Close
Come close

A glamour cabaret
The last float on parade
'Cause their swing got left behind
Every puzzle piece of mind
Handshake in facade
Play the fool or playing God
Just for God's sake play along
Well, you can have a laugh, hit it
Du-du-du-du-duah
Duuu-du-dudu
Du-du-du-du-duah
Du-du-du-duu-du-dudu
Duuu-du-dudu

Dive in
Falling no different
I am far beyond definitions now
Commence

Close
Come close
Close
Come close

Go on a living spree
You really wanna come with me
They couldn't miss the chance
Near-life experience

Move on
We're all entangled
Oh oh, let the man go
Yeah, unfold, let it go
Yeah, unfold, let it go
Yeah, unfold, let it go
Yeah, unfold, let it go

Here we come

Here we come
Here we come
Here we come
Get outta the way
Here we come
Get outta the way
Matters not
What the people say
Matters not
What the people say
'Cause here we come
Here we come
Here we come
Get outta the way, yeah

    General CommentI think this is about just being a band and having people look up to you whether you like it or not. How fame kind of inflates you and takes on a life of its own.

    Might not be exactly the same but it reminds me of "Misfit Love"

    Saw these guys in Columbus Ohio with Royal Blood and it was an amazing show!

    General CommentTo me this is about taking life by the balls and going for it, not letting anything hold you back!

    Ever since Homme's near death experience prior to ...Like Clockwork, I think about ...Like Clockwork as an album with the theme of dealing with death when you've looked it in the face and now Villains is like not taking life for granted, living in the present, and appreciating every moment. Not taking the people, places, or experiences for granted. Death really changes how you perceive everything. Soon after ...Like Clockwork was released my Dad died suddenly. So that album really resonated for me. And now that I've had a few years of grieving and healing I feel like I'm ready to start living again. In a nutshell that is how I feel about this song:

    "You don't wanna miss your chance, near life experience"
    - I love that line, near-life experience. It's so true. So many of us are just going through the motions and it takes a real wake up call to change that and not let our lives pass us by.

    "Faces making noise, say "be good girls and boys"
    - making noise as in it doesn't matter what anyone else says because it is YOUR life. Society tries to tame and control us into following the path laid out for us. What about making our own decisions and living our lives the way WE want.

    "It ain't half empty or full, You can break the glass, or drink it all, Dig it?"
    - aka there's a third option. You don't have to follow any other path but the one you create for yourself.

    I got that wakeup call so I just bought a cargo van and am converting it into a camper van and traveling the continent with it. Won't be no near life experience on my watch.

    Thanks Homme.
