Lyrics

Yesterday it seemed so cool and everything was fabulous
Built of brick and made for an eternity
Give an inch and take an inch and what you've got is where you were
The universe is based on sullen entropy
It falls apart as it goes on

Yesterday I saw the Devil in the nude
It was embarrassing, I turned away
He was leering in the mirror when I looked again

Everything you say you won't is what you will eventually
Honesty is money in the cemetery
If he treat you horribly, he's probably a Scorpio
He's a long kebab through your ovaries
The same goes out, the same goes in

Yesterday I saw the Devil in a mood
He wasn't angry, but he stood around
Biting off the legs of all his furry chums

I remember everything as if it happened years ago
Probably it did, so I remember it
You are just your feelings it might give you vertigo
Falling off a high place and into it
And I was into you

Yesterday I saw the Devil in my food
I wasn't hungry but I played with it
Blood red horns gouged through my scrambled (egg)

Yesterday I saw the Devil in my heart
I was expecting him, the doctor came
I have to call the doctor every time we kiss

<alternates>
Yesterday I saw the Devil in our bed              25a
I could have strangled him, I'm English, though   26a
So I made him coffee and I made him toast
