lyrics

Come as subtle
as a car crash
picking gravel from your skin
waiting late into
the hot gasp
until the day you let me in
double down and you're
on your last wish
living fables, well, that's your scene
tongue twisting lies
hide inside your face
well oiled and kinky clean

I will ride you down
hiding inside your blood flow
I will help you drown
better the devil that you know

Jump the gun and
plant your banner
stake your claim and cash it in
wipe you lips and
mind your manners
Momma don't know where you been
Tap your veins 'til
your head is bursting
scratch the itch until it bleeds
hide the hurt and
take my hand girl
I know exactly what you need

The trash bars
with the puppets full of wood rot
flaking paint and sweating skin
rub your scars
'til you take the next shot
a pound of flesh will get you in.
It's always better with the devil that you know
It's always better with the devil that you know
It's always better with the devil that you know
It's always better
with me

I will ride you down
hiding inside your blood flow
I will help you drown
better the devil that you know
I will never let you go
I will never leave you low
I will never let it show
Better the devil that you know.
