Satanic cowboy
Demonic hillbilly
Possesses country folk
To Nashville southern rockabilly
My man's got problems
He ain't raped to tight
I've seem him trotting around
On his headless horse at night

He's known to hit the scene
He poses in the nude
He started his own cult
Of redneck biker dudes
Known irreverently to some
As the overlords anxiety
Claims they are a reflection
Of what's wrong with society

Shits going down so get the fuck out of town (x3)
Shits going down so get the fuck underground

Root of all evil
Is the smile of a demon
An inebriated slob
On gin and tonic blood and semen
He'll spawn his seed
Until this town becomes a petting zoo
Hearing voices in his head
Singing rock n' rolls the devils tool

Rock n' rolls the devil's tool
That's what they always told you
Now he reaps the benefits
Of records that they sold you
We must confront the incubus
And see that he dies
So the towns people gathered
And they planned his demise

Shits going down so get the fuck out of town (x3)
Shits going down so get the fuck underground

It's all in your head (x4)

There's no such thing as evil...

Know (x4)

It's just a complex
Another personality (x4)

There was a little boy
Whose daddy drank too much
And then he beat him up
I said he beat him up (x2)

There was a little boy
Whose daddy drank too much
And now he's all grown up
I said he's all grown up

Shits going down so get the fuck out of town (x3)
Shits going down so get the fuck underground

    General CommentI think this song is about the complex that redneck fathers will raise their children into the same thing they have become, a redneck. When really the child will probably resent his father for that...and revolt in doing many things his father will deem "Evil." When in essence evil isn't something in materialistic it's something we create, an image, an oppinion.

    General CommentAlthough that seems probable as to what it means I also think this song might have to do with the ever dreaded 'poser' (whatever that may be) of a stereotype

    Talking about a guy who went around town trying to be badass and feared by making it seem like everything he did was evil and bad, and trying to get attention for it EA: listening to rock music, hearing 'voices' in his head, riding a headless horse and all that.
    "Hearing voices in his head
    Singing rock n' rolls the devils tool"

    Rock n' rolls the devil's tool
    That's what they always told you
    Now he reaps the benefits
    Of records that they sold you
    We must confront the incubus "

    I think that^ might be a them saying that you cant let this guy get the better of you, you have to kick his ass so he doesnt win.
