Isn't the title in first person perspective? Who says you have to rhyme with Devil? I think you should rhyme with Lucifer.

I drowned a southern devil scorpion with a hose last summer after it stung my wife. So I have lyric material I suppose.

In with a song about someone I just lost to suicide and addiction. The title was very timely for me.

In with a piano only track, quite sparse for me but happy with it.

Used the Mrs Mill Piano newly released by Spitfire Audio on the chorus and bridge bits to lift the track up a bit.

There'll be not much time to write and produce within the next weeks. So, I'm gonna take a break.

Okay I've got a tightly wound snare drum and some Helmet-ey riffing. Need to do my vox and flesh out a jammy part.

MY WIFE IS OUT OF TOWN.

Obviously, this means I'm getting the accordion out of the closet.
