The Devil's Crayon
Wild Beasts Lyrics


This truly is
The Devil's crayon
Tracing your shoulderblades
Aglow like rayon

This truly is the Devil's crayon
That all his children can use to draw

And we are so many tiny pieces
And we are so many tiny pieces

This truly is
The Devil's answer
Carved from the tongue
Of this romancer

This truly is the Devil's answer
That all his children use to kiss

And we are so many clambering hands
And we are so many clambering hands

The way you say her name
I want mine said the same, devil
Devil, devil, devil
The way you say her name I want mine said the same
Devil

This truly is the Devil's shoulder
Your arm draped around
Ten times over

This truly is the Devil's shoulder
That all his children will use to throw their loads, their loads on you
To throw their loads on you

And we are so much moulded dough
And we are so much moulded dough

Used to throw their loads on you
Used to throw their loads on you

RIP Wild Beasts. You were a magnificent force in the music world and I miss your sound and creativity.
I was at your final concert at the Eventim Apollo in 2018-a very special and emotional gig.
Thank you for the music!
