"Devil's Plaything" as written by and Danzig....
Love is a flame
A devil's thing
A violent storm
About to be born
Just look in these eyes
See all the lies
All the things you see
You cannot deny

And this flame
That burns inside
If you get too close
Burn you alive
Just look in these eyes
And see if they lie
All these words I speak
You cannot deny

Got a light
Shines on me
Gentle light
It will never be
See the flame
In my hand
If you're playing with fire
You're playing in Hell

Devil's plaything
In my hands
If you don't want pain
You don't understand
Got a light
Shines on me
If you want to touch flames
Come unto me

Got a flame
Burns inside
If you don't want to burn
Just walk on by
And the pain
You're feeling now
Is nothing compared
To the pleasures I hide

Devil's plaything
In my hands
If you don't want pain
You don't understand
Got a light
Shines on me
If you want to touch flames
Come unto me

Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

Got a flame
In my hand
If you don't want a fire
Step out of my light
Walk on by
Just look away
'Cause if you're on my path
You're better off dead

Devil's plaything
In my hands
If you don't want pain
You don't understand
Got a light
Shines on me
If you want to touch flames
Then Come unto me

Oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh

    General Commenti think it means love hurts, it burns, but that's ok. you make sacrifices. you deal with that and accept it.
    passion burns, like a flame. the man is saying he doesnt want a casual relationship. he wants a firey burnng hot love, regaurdless of the pain. and if you dont wanna burn, just walk on by and step outta his light.

    General Comment"Devil's Plaything" is awesome. I think it's about love honestly. Sounds to me like a Danzig love song.

    General CommentIm not sure what this song s about but i think the"If you don't want a fire
    Step out of my light" and
    "If you don't wanna burn
    Just walk on by." parts mean something like: You can love me the way i am and if you dont like that, then just walk on by..

    General CommentIt's about Temptation. Danzig singing as a demon offering "flames", power or whatnot...
    Also I'm pretty sure it's "God of light shines on me" not "got a light" but it's hard to tell from the recording.. does it say that in the CD jacket?

    General CommentI was pretty sure it is god of light because in Danzig's previous band Samhain, in the song archangel, he sings "the god of light will show no fear."

    General CommentI just started listening to Danzig, and I don't know if it's just me, but he sounds a hell of a lot like Jim Morrison in more than just several songs.
    I like his songs and lyrics. I agree with the thwarted love aspect, though.
