"Devil" as written by and Louis Johnson George Johnson....
Sick I've lit the bridge on fire
Exposed the nerves will twitch
Feed the needy x desire
Poke it with a stick

I need assertion
Devils inside my eye won't let up any motion
I need a surgeon
Devils inside won't cut me any slack
Who cares about you
I thought I did
Who cares about you
Who cares about you

Fingers twitch and blisters stalk her
Removes itself from it
Dream the greedy motivators
Sleep it off again

I need assertion
Devils inside my eye won't let up any motion
I need a surgeon
Devils inside won't cut me any slack
Who cares about you
I thought I did
Who cares about you
Who cares about you

I need assertion
Devils inside my eye won't let up any motion
I need a surgeon
Devils inside won't cut me any slack
Who cares about you
I thought I did
Who cares about you
Who cares about you

Who cares about you
I thought i did
Who cares about you

I need assertion
Devils inside my eye won't let up any motion
I need a surgeon
Devils inside won't cut me any slack
Who cares about you
I thought I did
Who cares about you
Who cares about you

I need assertion
Devils inside my eye won't let up any motion
I need a surgeon
Devils inside won't cut me any slack
Who cares about you
I thought I did
Who cares about you
Who cares about you

Distant wreaths surreal retired
In bed forever sleeps
Secrets feed the next desire
Desires not to be

I need assertion
Devils inside my eye won't let up any motion
I need a surgeon
Devils inside won't cut me any slack
Who cares about you
I thought I did
Who cares about you
Who cares about you

I need assertion
Devils inside my eye won't let up any motion
I need a surgeon
Devils inside won't cut me any slack
Who cares about you
I thought I did
Who cares about you
Who cares about you

    General CommentI think maybe this song is about someone being controlled, and changed by their fears/worries.

    I need assertion devils in my eye won't let up any motion - Needs someone to take control and help them overcome their 'devils', who won't stop emotions controlling what that person does.
    I need a surgeon devils inside won't cut me any slack - Needs someone to get rid of the demon's inside, because they are destroying that person. Maybe its talking about a psychotherapist or something akin to that; then again it could be a metaphor for self-harm.

    My InterpretationFor me this song is a criticism of capitalism. The protagonist is someone who is at least somewhat affluent and feels guilty about taking advantage of a corrupt system.
