White Devil
Alexisonfire Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Hey kids, we got a new white devil
And it goes in your fucking nose
That's right, we got a new white devil
This is how the story goes
Story goes

Watch out!
Glorify, glamorize
Try to forget your sunken eyes
Your dead fad is a disaster
Your fashion is my fucking cancer
Not so fun when your nose is sore
Bloody Kleenex all over the floor
But don't worry, who gives a shit?
All your friends will think you're really hip

Your dead fad is a fucking disaster

Addiction is in, I guess addiction is in, yeah

Addiction is in, I guess addiction is in this year

Looks so good
Convulsing on the floor, ya sugar!
And the blood from your nose
Matches your lipstick shade

Look what you have become
White devil, white devil, white devil
