  • Oh Devon
    Won't go to Heaven
    She's just another lost soul, about to be mine again
    Leave her
    We will receive her
    It is beyond your control
    Will you ever meet again.

    Devon
    One of eleven
    Who had been rendered unwhole.
    As a little child,
    She was taken
    And then forsaken
    You will remember it all
    Let it blow your mind again.

    Devon lies beyond this portal
    Take the word of one immortal

    Give your soul to me
    For eternity
    Release your life
    To begin another time with her
    End your grief with me
    There's another way
    Release your life
    Take your place inside the fire with her

    Sever
    Now and forever
    You're just another lost soul about to be mine again
    See her, you'll never free her
    You must surrender it all
    In your life to meet again

    Fire
    All you desire
    As she begins to turn cold and run out of time
    You will shiver
    Till you deliver
    You will remember it all
    Let it blow your mind again

    Devon lies beyond this portal
    Take the word of one immortal
    Give your soul to me
    For eternity
    Release your life
    To begin another time with her
    End your grief with me
    There's another way
    Release your life
    Take your place inside the fire with her.

    Give your soul to me
    For eternity
    Release your life
    To begin another time with her
    End your grief with me
    There's another way
    Release your life
    Take your place inside the fire with her

    Devon
    Among the livin'
    Who had been rendered unwhole
    As a little child
    She was taken,
    And then forsaken
    You will remember it all
    Let it blow your mind again. Writer/s: DAN DONEGAN, DAVID DRAIMAN, MICHAEL WENGREN, MIKE WENGREN

  • Lyric's Mom 16 Forever from OhioI lost my 16 year old daughter on 12-28-20. 3 days after Christmas 3 days before her 17th Birthday. She took her own life. I saw no signs. She was heartbroken. Her boyfriend broke up with her. She was also being harassed online. Someone told her to kill herself. He also sent a picture of a man with a gun. He said it was his hitman. He treated her and told her he would kill her family. He also said something to her boyfriend. I think that's why he broke up with her. The police are no help finding this guy. This video is my life.
  • Renee from Pittsburgh Tiffany W, David never had a daughter. He has one child, a son named Samual. I like the song, I am not a fan of the video. I feel it’s not a tasteful way to honor his girlfriend or portray suicide. But as an artist, he may be seeing it from a different angle than some of us.
  • Nope from LunchWell we know what it's about. But it's more of what he was thinking. She won't go to heaven. I think it's taught in most religions that killing your self is an automatic reject from heaven. And it may be, but I believe it's not that black and white. I believe God knows our trials and tribulations on earth. He that formed the ear shall he not hear, he that giveth knowlegde shall he not know. Devon was a drug adict. God knows why and HE and only HE will decide if she goes to heaven. Now he (David) considered suicide because of what she did AND he was raised to know better. If he had killed himself the devil may have took his soul. Consider this could the devil have tempted Devon to get Davids beautiful soul? David won a battle against the devil. Devon will go to heaven I believe. And if anyone ever thinks about suicide. My advice, if for nothing else, live for spite. Spite the devil never accept defeat.
  • Mr.krumb from TxTiffany - Wheatley. Please get your facts straight before you go posting false info - https://youtu.be/eLDeFPMdKcw
  • Grace from ArkhamIn an interview he says it's about a girl he dated that comes suicide that had a lot of drug problems.
  • Tiffany from WheatleyThis song is not about a girl he was in a relationship with its about his daughter who took her own life bc she was bullied at school for her dad being a metal singer, people thought he was in support of the devil she was so depressed she took her life.
  • Kyel Linn from Myanmar (burma)This song is really good... we can that guy's love so strong... and good for me... it make me stronger.
  • Zack from Noblesville, InThis song speaks to me because I have attempted on many occasions with the rifle I bought my gf at the time.
  • Hannah from Gratz, PaAfter attempting suicide more than a year ago, this song really hits home for me. This is the greatest song by Disturbed. Ever.
  • Zero from Nowhere, NjGreat song with a catchy flow and deep lyrics. BTW I don't have to worry about trying to beat Guitar Hero or Rock Band on expert level cuz I actually PLAY Guitar. Sorry, I didn't mean to offend anyone, I just hate Guitar Hero with a passion.
  • Marianne from Kimberley,These lyrics are amazing. Some really deep stuff!
  • Charlie from Las Vegas, Nvi can (kinda) relate to the subject matter of this song. My cousin Ginelyn and I are like sisters. Back last February she ran away, and I was tempted to do the same.
  • Paul from San Benito, Txthis song is hardcore and having dealt with suicide issues myself i can tell you this song reminds me of the voices i used to hear trying to convince me too.. its a killer song about real life stuff....not their best song cuz that one belongs to DOWN WITH THE SICKNESS but its right up there with it
  • Matt from Houston, Txhoward... what exactly was that rant directed at
  • Howard from Stevensville, MdLook, I have 3 children and I lost them when my divorced wife left with them. In order to be with them, and to ensure their lives have some semblence of normalcy, I HAD TO END A LIFESTYLE, or MY LIFE as it were. People that hold onto these ideas of MURDER and FATALITY need head shrinks. This song is HARDCORE, if you want something PRECIOUS you HAVE TO SACRIFICE!!! This is the reason I am dubious when I am approached by RELIGIOUS types.
  • Rick Phlaire from Georgetown, DeScott, if you're talking about Guitar Hero: World Tour...not there. Neither of them. Bought it for my son. He beat it in 2 days. On expert. Never saw Disturbed or FFDP. Maybe RockBand2.
  • Scott from Hamburg, --In my oppinion & suicide is a laughing matter if you want to risk your life go ahead... but when you reach the gates of Heaven what will you say??? I'm Christian but I also thought of suicide before I found Christ... I love Metal and it expresses that in life rock on Disturbed and Behemoth, and Cradle of Filth rock on
  • Scott from Hamburg, --This song is going to be feautured with 5 Finger Death Punch Never To Late on the new Guitar Hero so they say
  • Zach from Buckeye, AzDisturbed rocks this world, there my ultimate favorite band and this was the first i heard. THIS SONG ALONG WITH "DOWN WITH THE SICKNESS" GOT ME ADDICTED TO METAL MUSIC btw!
  • Corey from Greenfield, InGreat song!
  • Kathy from Kingsport, TnHaving tried to commit suicide several times, this video really effected me. Pain makes one ignore the effects ones death would have on others.
  • Chantal from Oxfordshire, United Kingdomwat a song. it grabed me the first time and it was the first song i heard frm them. i can relate with david here as i lost a family relitive in this way. just isnt easy to deal with but u do learn to. rly deep words here. and true.
    C frm UK
  • Billy from Newcastle, United KingdomHeard this once and got it. I now can't get the chorus out of my head. Probably the best Disturbed track I've ever heard. Ever.
  • Garrett from Lacrosse, WiOne of my newest favorites! Woo!
  • Nick from Edmonton, CanadaWhat a great song from a killer band. I was proud to see Dan Donegan grace the cover of Guitar World's August 2008 issue
