I've been wasting all my time
With the devil in the details
I got no energy to fight
He is a fucking Power mind
That devil in the details
He is fixing up to take a bite
I don't see the point in try
I've got the devil in the details
He's gonna teach me wrong from right
That fucking power mind the devil in the details
I'm gonna dance with him tonight

All of my wrongs, no more wicked ways
Will come back to haunt me , come with me
For all of the songs I hope to write someday
Looks like the devil is here to stay

Let me take you for a ride with the
Devil in the details
We'll kiss and tremble with the light
Everything is fine with the devil in the details
We're gonna dance with Him tonight

All of my wrongs, no more wicked ways
Will come back to haunt me , come with me
For all of the songs I hope to write someday
Looks like the devil is here to stay

Looks like the devil is here to stay

All of my wrongs, no more wicked ways
Will come back to haunt me , come with me
For all of the songs I hope to write someday
Looks like the devil is here to stay

I've been wasting all my time
With the devil and the details

    My InterpretationThis song is externally about the fight every creative person has to take up: Fighting resistance and making their own work the best it can possibly be. But there's more emphasis put on the internal state of the protagonist. Even though there's the morality of the protagonist addressed: 'All of my wrongs and all my wicked ways will come back to haunt me', the revelation is stronger that changed the protagonist's worldview. It's a Worldview Revelation scene because realizing that the devil is in the detail is the main character's discovery. Or even better, that'S what we in the Story Grid say to this internal genre and it fits perfectly to the song: "When a protagonist, with well-developed will but lacking in essential facts, experiences doubt about their circumstances which leads to a revelation of a shocking truth, they can make wise and appropriate decisions."
