Devil, Devil (Prelude: Princess of Darkness) Lyrics

This town, she is a temptress
A siren with gold eyes,
She'll cut you with her kindness,
She will lead you with her lies
She's been called a glistening devil,
She's good at keeping score
If you make it she's your savior
If you don't she's a whore

The roads to and from her heart are littered with grave souls.
They gave all of their all and all they got in return is empty holes.
Sure we've all heard about Shell, and Chris, Willy, and Bobby Bares.
She'd smiled on Johnny's the Merles any music-wrote billionaires.
Like a beacon she goes seeking seed, her loins so fertile.
To a free man she's a prison, to a caged one she's a fire.

She's the reason there's a Sunday morning coming down.
I saw the light, a boy named Sue,
He stopped loving her today. The pill and 16th avenue.
The rhyming, oh she's a diamond the brown eyed mickey
She was Roy Acuff castle and Elvis parsley's broken dream
Its not all bad its not all dark its not all gloom and crass,
But to mine gold in this silver mine it does take balls of brass.
For she's seem 'em come and seen 'em go, and came herself a time or two.

No matter how satisfied her scream sounds she always wants someone new.
The next him or them or her or all to the rest of them all
Be a star in this lady's town you can fuck or you can fight.

You see, it all comes down to money.
Not romantic art of days gone past, if you forget that rule,
You can bet your backside she will bury it in your ass.
A tramp, a slut, a bitch, a mutt, a thousand pawn shop guitars.
A nasty little needle to a vein that feeds a singers heart.
She lurks in friendly shadows, but she's a junky with a limb.
The agents are her bookie and the labels are her pen
I'll tell you a well-known secret of a place known far and wide
The devil walks among us folks and Nashville is his bride

All the chaos he has caused, and done
His greatest tribute to every guitar-toting' dreamer
The devil don't but me, i shook his hand
And i know that he is real, so devil, you can go screw yourself
And then go straight the hell.

Devil, Devil (Prelude: Princess of Darkness)
  • This track contains the second and third part of a haunting trilogy centered upon evil. It starts off with the preceding track, the tensely introspective "Dark Side" where Church talks about putting a bullet in anyone who messes with his family.

    Part two is "Princess of Darkness," a speech about the evils of Nashville that Church partially recited straight into his iPhone in the Opry Mills mall parking. He did so not long after learning that Shel Silverstein's estate wouldn't give him the rights to the late author's Nashville-as-the devil poem The Devil and Billy Markham.

    The final part, the menacing "Devil, Devil," finds Church taking on Nashville's streets of broken dreams before concluding, "The devil walks amongst us. And Nashville is his bride."
  • Church said that he and producer Jay Joyce set out to challenge themselves on The Outsiders. "We made a conscious effort when we started this album," he said. "We were at a point in our career where, I understand that we had two choices. I could have continued to do 'Drink In My Hand,' 'Springsteen,' 'Creepin' . . . I know how to do those things. I know how to continue the career that way. I think we made a conscious effort to challenge ourselves artistically, and do something that was artistic. That's what we did. That's what we chose on this album. We made it that way."
  • Church told Billboard magazine that no one should interpret this anti-music business rant as being his personal manifesto. "I really wrote that from the standpoint of — I've had my struggles — but I've seen a lot of people who had struggles," he explained. "I've always been so compelled by the difference between a person who come to this town and has his dreams come true and a person who's standing outside on Broadway playing for tips with a guitar case open and starving to death."

    "The talent difference is pretty close," Church continued. "They can both do it. It just seems so cruel to me the randomness that one makes it and ten don't. The seedy nature of that is what has always appealed to me."
