lyrics

The year of the weird, bookended by booty pix I never posted. I was kissing the grime with a trigger finger in the sunrise. They told me a candle’s unlucky if it never gets to light the darkness. But I never wanna light the darkness.

‘Cause I’m in league with the devil. You better buck me off. I compete with the devil. He better stop me. Devil, you better stop me. Better find a way to top me.

Wouldn’t you mind acting as the centerfold in someone’s longing? I pitch ‘em the bird, then head down the corner store half hour to closing. Out on the avenue, there’s an innocent who says she knows you. How’d she ever get to know you? Only I can know the real you.

I’m the devil, you better buck me off. You’re in league with the devil. You better buck me off. I compete with the devil. He better stop me. Devil, you better stop me. Better find a way to top me.

Whatever happened to what we used to do?

Let’s have a padded blanket for our most manic moments. Like vampires, they sucked me up. Could you buck me off? Perishing in aftershock was never close enough. I’m complete with the devil. He better find a way to smart me. You better buck me off.
