I was inside your head
Had time well, spent, I got your mind well bent
Snuck back into shade
Oooo ooo
You searched the globe for them perfect looks
And you searched for answers in all your books
And finally by diabolic ascent here I am

Said it's just a diabolic
A diabolic scheme
Diabolic scheme [Repeat x2]

That's me all right like purity white, and like viciousness black
I give a little then I take it back
Can you take it?
Ooo can you take it? Yeah!!!
So what's the attraction? The suckers sing
Profolic depth or static cling?
Well from greatness to greatness is where I span
You have me for a moment grab on while you can

Said it's just a diabolic
A diabolic scheme
Diabolic scheme [Repeat x2]

Diabolic scheme
Ooo, oo, ooo
Ooo, oo, ooo
Thank you!

    General CommentGreat Song. I think its pretty simple, just saying that our society operates as a "diabolic scheme".

    General CommentI love this!! i know that it probably has some deeper meaning, but to me this is just Howlin' Pele (lead singer) saying that he's pure evil from hell. Awesome.

    General CommentI think the song is actually sung from the point of the devil or some sort of devious character, like a crime lord or corrupt leader. He seems to plant demand for his services through psychological manipulation in verse one, waits for the victim to ask him for help with what they want in verse two, and in the rest of the song he explains how he will give you what you want but he will want something back. Pretty awesome, I like how the Hives aren't overly difficult to interpret. They never let the meaning of the song get important, it's only there if you want to hear it, and if you don't, it's just 5 guys playing kick-ass rock. Can't wait for the new album this fall! ^_^

    General Commenti love how awful this solo is. it's perfect. as for meaning, the hives tend to be fairly straight-forward. they figured they'd write a song from this antagonist's perspective and all that. but man, that solo is bad

    General CommentI flipping adore this song. It's just in and out, it's like an awesome rant. The "thank you" at the end is just perfect. The song is just so effortless! I adore it.

    General CommentThis song is obviously about Pete messing with a girl's head. He give's her a bit of his love, and then take's it away, until she can't live without it. He's going to win.
