"Devil You Know" as written by and Dave/kinney Dobbyn....
I've been away for a long, long time
Tears from the trees fall on sullen lives
Dropped in the wake of a plastic mind
Some kinda love and I heard it's mine

It's the Devil and I can't see you
Split the difference and you can be the same

I've been away for a long, long time
Tears from the trees fall on sullen lives
It's the Devil and I can't see you
Split the difference and you can be the same

Something will be on the minds so undeveloped
So they will leave links to the banks to crack the codes
It's the part of you that stays
Leaving nothing but a stain

Bang
Take you down a peg

(We crash into the rocks below)
(We crash into the rocks below)

No water here
No quarter here
I don't wanna fear you man, oh no
Just wanna have you here
Don't go

I've been away for a long, long time
Tears from the trees fall on sullen lives
Dropped in the wake of a plastic mind
Some kinda love and I heard it's mine
It's the Devil and I can't see you
Split the difference and you can be the same
It's the Devil and I can't see you
Split the difference and you can be the same
It's the Devil and I can't see you
Split the difference and you can be the same

Something will be on the minds so undeveloped
So they will leave links to the banks to crack the codes
It's the part of you that stays (take you down a peg)
Leaving nothing but a stain

Sometimes we'll be laying by the docks so undisturbed
Folding, maybe, leaves on the ground turned brown with age
That's the part of you that stays
That's the part I hope remains

Take you down a peg

    General Commenti think its about a guy who was away in prison for a long time and finally got out and he still has a criminal mind cause thats just what he loves to do, be a criminal. then in the lyrics "something will be on the minds so undeveloped" meaning he'll have a not so well drawn out plan to steal something so then he gets people to get on the inside of a bank and crack the codes to the vaults. then when its like "thats the part of you that stays, its the part i hope remains" means like theres a part of him that knows hes doing wrong. then in the end he crashes into the rocks as in he gets caught again.
