Devil Town
Daniel Johnston Lyrics


I was livin' in a devil town
Didn't know it was a devil town
Oh lord it really brings me down
About the devil town
And all my friends were vampires
Didn't know they were vampires

Turns out I was a vampire myself
In the devil town
I was livin' in a devil town
Didn't know it was a devil town
Oh lord it really brings me down
About the devil town

I was living in a devil town
Didn't know it was a devil town
Oh Lord, it really brings me down about the devil town

And all my friends were vampires
Didn't know they were vampires
Turns out I was a vampire myself in the devil town

I was living in a devil town
Didn't know it was a devil town
Oh Lord, it really brings me down about the devil town

I played this for a friend not realizing how heavy it really is. I knew she, my friend, struggles with depression, but I didn't realize how hard this song would hit her. She started tearing up and said it expressed exactly the type of self doubt and anxiety she experiences during an episode. She says she liked it a lot, but will never listen to it again because it is too much. I didn't mean to do that. I've known her for 15 years and have never seen her react le that to anything. This is really true art to have that kind of impact.

@Jola Joolsy so spot on.. it's subjective for us but its exactly how I imagined Daniel meant it. RIP
Such a childlike Innocence & genuineness in that guy. I really hope his soul's at peace now.

@𝔸𝕊ℍ 7 in my opinion it is like all ur interactions with other people drain u from ur energy (if there's any left) and u dread it but at the same time u are scared that u suck the energy out of them with ur moods and depression and u are in deep need of them to get through it

What is the relationship about vampires and depression??

No reaction quite like "I love it, and I never want to hear it again." Heavy stuff.

Hauntingly beautiful. Conveys every emotion you can feel as an outcast.
