(Spoken intro)
One, two, three, and

[Verse 1]
Insane in a studio in Los Angeles
Rudderless and hungry and high
Ideas of no earthly consequence
Float across my consciousness
And then go dark
As bullseyes

[Chorus]
Go down the devil’s way
Go down a twenty devil way

[Verse 2]
Twenty years on they’ll be asking what I remember
Go where the dry dust-crawlers tread
The fire in the vocal booth
The doctor who filed down my teeth:
Dreams from the ether overhead

[Chorus]
Go down the devil’s way
Go down a twenty devil way

[Bridge]
Lit candles pressed into the walls down there
Three cans of Aqua Net in my greying hair

[Verse 3]
Arsenic drifting down through the hourglass
Track-lit hallways that go on for days
Floating like a Portuguese man o' war
Pretty hardcore
Fire offerings, burnt offerings
Thanks and praise

[Chorus]
Go down the devil’s way
Go down the devil’s way
Go down the devil’s way
Go down a twenty devil way
