lyrics

The Devil came to visit when I was just a child
He scared the piss out while writhing in my sleep
I couldn't explain it in a fear to speak
I took a bath but then the waves were washing me, whoa whoa

When maybe three, maybe two
blue formations flew right by

Blue or were they green
I could not tell
before I knew they were off like wind

What fiends are these
A gust of leaves
The cats freak out
and they're off like wind

mother of god and all that's sanctified
I believe I slept too long (but the devil's in the bathtub)
Every bug stood still (but the devil's in the bathtub)
even the cicadas (the devil's in the bath)
No I couldn't have
That doesn't happen
No it don't so I must have been struck with a vision

Thunder and lightening and the waves are washing me, whoa whoa

looking all around for a flashlight
I tripped and took out the banister ball
with a few fillings and a chilling
premonition and then I checked on out

Out the door to breathe out in it for a minute
How the day had hit had surely hit my limit
how the heavy tense of it had surely hit the top
Bells were ringing in my head, a readiness to pop
Waves are washing me, whoa whoa

The Devil came to visit when I was just a child
He scared the piss out while writhing in my sleep
I couldn't explain it in a fear to speak
I took a bath but then the waves were washing me, whoa whoa

Put the devil in the bathtub and wash his face and ass

Put the devil in the washtub
and fill all his wounds with sand
It wouldn't be the worst time
we've had since we saw him laugh

since we saw him last
