speak of the devil and he'll walk right in
with a shit-eating grin
ready to rumble

believe in the myth for a long long time
it can blow your mind
or you can stumble

and baby that's why
the blues come out at night
and sonny that's why
your shoes don't fit you right

talk to your shadow year after year
you can disappear
as the sidewalk crumbles

you can laugh at the lions
and cry like a boat
but it's a complicated ocean
the further out you float

and there's a map in the sky
made of millions of stars
but you're trying to draw conclusions
on a napkin at the bar
it ain't easy

oh how we try
to find the missing piece
the days go by
and still it's incomplete

so i've givin' up hoping for the world to change
to re-arrange
just to please me

speak of the devil and he'll walk right it
with a shit-eating grin
ready to rumble
