INVITE THE DEVIL TO TEA (words and music by E.P. Schwartz) Strap in this isn't as dark as it gets there's always something underneath always something racking up debt Always something in the hollows and holes always something that shrinks from the light Always something out of focus in the mirror something you ignore at night Always a slightly unsatisfied hunger Always something the other side of your line Always a tickle on the edge of sleep Always an itch in the back of your mind So maybe let it out on a day pass it could benefit from your generosity maybe you could both take in a movie maybe invite your devil to tea It's our nature to be half angel it's our nature to be half storm Who am I to argue with nature and who are you to tell me I'm wrong Maybe I'll take him out for a stroll Maybe I'll take him out and see Maybe we could throw a cocktail party Maybe I'll invite my devil to tea
THE PLAGUE MASK I put on a plague mask and I dance around I dance across setting sun trying to escape from holy ground I dance between drops of rain between the barbs on the wire I dance until my flesh is gone and I set the moon on fire How do I know it's you? How do I know it's you? How do I know it's you? I just do The devil waits in a circle of salt down at the water line he is ready for the demarcation and I am right on time So I kick away the salt and the devil hands me the keys he says "look upon my new master all hail the new disease!" How do I know it's you? How do I know it's you? How do I know it's you? I just do I put on the plague mask and I dance around I find the righteous and make them go to ground When the devil drives they say "needs must" but what if the devil hits the gas and pops the clutch
