  • Devil Town
[From November 26, 2000 version]

Oh Lord it really brings me down
About the Devil Town

And all my friend were vampires
Didn't know they were vampires
Didn't know I was a vampire myself
In the Devil Town

I have been to Aberdeen
The spirit will rise
I have seen in Aberdeen
The devil has Texas

Purple rose, they shall wear
The spirit rise
The numbers on their forehead and their hands
The devil has Texas

In the sky, the number seven, the devil defeated
In the sky, the new Jerusalem
I have been to Aberdeen, the spirit will rise
