  • Tim from Miami, FlI can listen to Delux over and over. Porcelin is also one of my favs. Thanks for the info "where the devil beats his wife" I thought it was a domestic abuse issue. There are other lyrics in their songs that are a bit voilent. "I wish I could kill you, savor the sight" "...can turn a hand into a fist" or face. Love their songs anyway.
  • Anonymous from Dixon , CaThis song is one of their greatest, and this album is one of my personal favorites
