This song tells the story of a man who makes a Faustian deal, selling his soul to the Devil. There's a twist though: he steals it back, and goes in debt to the Devil.
The absurd scenario is a commentary on religion, as the man has created this in his own mind. "It's a song that tells people to believe in themselves instead of using anything else as a crutch," Volbeat frontman Michael Poulsen, said in his Songfacts interview
. "The Devil is something that we create in our own mind - that's how it exists. And God, I don't know anything about that - He hasn't shown himself in all the time people have been talking about him."
