Deconstruct the devil

"Deconstruct the devil" von Earl Thomas


Ein Lied, das es in sich hat!  Melodie und Text weisen eine Leichtigkeit und zugleich eine Gelassenheit und Überzeugtheit auf, die jeder christlichen Theologie und deren Aussagen über den "Teufel" oder  das "Böse"  gut tun würde. Sicher, mit dem Bösen ist nicht zu Spaßen.
Dem Teufel oder dem Bösen verdirbt man aber ganz sicher den Spaß, wenn man durch Melodie und Text deutlich macht, dass man den Teufel auseinandernehmen möchte.

Und: Der "Teufel" ist nicht irgendwo ..... 


Hier gibt es das Lied auf die Ohren!

Earl Thomas hat ewigkite.de den Text, der von seinem Gitarristen Randall Brenneman stammt, freundlicherweise zur Verfügung gestellt.

E-Mail von Earl Thomas an C.Hokema in Auszügen:

" ... and thank you! Here are the lyrics to the song. Lots of people seem to get something out of that one and I am very proud of the way it turned out.
It was written by my guitarist Randall Brenneman who also wrote Daylight and See It My Way from the new cd.

(...) I thought you might appreciate my gospel album Plantation Gospel a recording of old Negro Spirituals featuring songs from  the region of southeastern Tennessee where my family comes from. Thanks again, Earl T."


 

Deconstruct The Devil
(Randall Brenneman)


I'm gonna deconstruct the devil I'm gonna find out where he sleeps
I'm gonna deconstruct the devil I'm see what he likes to eat
I'm gonna deconstruct the devil like he done to you and me
I'm gonna deconstruct the devil I'm gonna offer him some treats
I'm gonna deconstruct the devil I'm gonna listen when he speaks
I'm gonna deconstruct the devil like he done to you and me


Don't take no mind I'll be gone sometimes and it'll take a little while to find
Just what he drinks and what he thinks there's a devil inside and I just got to know


I'm gonna deconstruct the devil I'm gonna slip him something bad
I'm gonna deconstruct the devil I'm gonna find out what makes him so mad
I'm gonna deconstruct the devil like he done to you and me
I'm gonna deconstruct the devil I'm gonna make him scream and shout
I'm gonna deconstruct the devil I'm gonna make him reel about
I'm gonna deconstruct the devil for all the world to see


Don't take no mind I'll be gone sometimes because it'll take a little while to find
Just what he drinks and what he thinks there's a devil inside and I just got to know


I'm gonna deconstruct the devil I'm gonna crawl inside his head
I'm gonna deconstruct the devil I'm gonna find out what he dreads
I'm gonna deconstruct the devil for all the world to see
I'm gonna deconstruct the devil gonna leave him bruised and bent
I'm gonna deconstruct the devil I'm gonna make him want to repent
I'm gonna deconstruct the devil for all the world to see

 

Don't take no mind I'll be gone sometimes and it'll take a little while  to find
Just what he drinks and what he thinks there's a devil inside and I just got to know
 

Don't take no mind I'll be gone sometimes and it'll take a little while  to find
Just what he drinks and what he thinks there's a devil inside and I just got to know

There's a devil inside and I just got know

Said there's a devil inside and I just got to know
Yeah there's a devil inside and I just got to I just got to I just to know...
