Imagine the three-way love child of Pink Floyd, Nine Inch Nails, and The Cure. Now add a pinch of Zeppelin and Tool, a dollop of Radiohead, and bake at 350 until golden-brown. This is Psychodevilia.

Biography

Psychodevilia began in late 2005 as the collaboration of James Faix and Fred Fredericks (bass/vocals). In July 2007, after a year and a half of endless member changes, Greg Gallagher joined on drums.

By combining three musicians, each with their own arsenal of influences and varying degrees of ADD, Psychodevilia has created the perfect antidote for a world full of bands that confine themselves to a single genre. From punk to progressive to doom in less than four minutes, and all as seamless as a well crafted brazier.

Lyrics

You

Written By: Psychodevilia

i'm trying so hard to get my mind on track,
to get it back but you took it and you tore it apart
threw it away today i'm lost,
all because i wasn't smart enough to know,
i was ready willing able to go,
you know, everything i tried i lied,
to you just to see how to but it's fine,
wine, today we feast on the beast,
our love like a plastic glove,
and the fruit smells good and it smells
of ecstasy
smells of ecstasy

you and me, we will be
or at least that's what we thought
til the world came crashing in

wil they run your life will they take your knife,
will they hate me rape me never let us be,
like we were like before,
we opened up that door, and god damed pleasure
make syou love me more than you do,
you lied to me just to see what to do,
but now i'm hurt and choking on the apple
you made me swallow, all for you

you and me, we will be
or at least that's what we thought
til the world came crashing in
and you will see
what i can be
and wont you feel bad
i'll be glad cause i'm better and forever,

Dirty Shame

Written By: Psychodevilia

when i was just a child i taught myself to breath and not believe, society's conceived ideals of what is real and what to feel or say today, dried up and bleeding tied up and needing to breath from your disease, as if your morals and values could ever mean anything to me

there's nothing sexier to me than watching innocence die,
there's nothing as appealing to me than watching beauty run dry,
there's nothing more alluring to me than watching angels cry,
there's nothing dirtier than me when i'm alone with my mind

so i trudge through the lies, the false truths, the golden rules they all live by, but i swear to myself to you to my world i'll never believe in these lies, wearing armor of truth i'll take the fight for might is right my way of life, in glory and power the exalted kingdom of the south i'll cut you down

there's nothing sexier to me than watching innocence die,
there's nothing as appealing to me than watching beauty run dry,
there's nothing more alluring to me than watching angels cry,
there's nothing dirtier than me when i'm alone with my mind

So, you listen to me. Listen to me!

Television is not the truth. Television is a circus, a carnival, a traveling troupe of acrobats, dancers, singers, and sideshow freaks. They're in the boredom-killing business.
If you want the Truth, go to god. Go to yourselves cause that's the only place you're ever gonna find any real truth you're never gonna get any truth from them. They'll tell you any shit you wanna hear.
They lie like hell. They deal in illusions. None of it is true! They'll tell you that Kojak always gets the killer and nobody ever gets cancer at Archie Bunker's house.

So turn off your television sets. Turn them off right now! Turn them off and leave them off.

And no matter how much trouble the hero is in. Don't worry, at the end of the hour, he's gonna win. But you people sit there day after day they're all you know you're beginning to believe the illusions.
And to think that the tube is reality and your own lives are unreal. You do whatever the tube tells you. Dress like the tube. Eat and think like the tube. In God's name, you people are the real thing.
They are the illusion! This tube is your gospel, the ultimate revelation. This tube can make or break presidents, popes, prime ministers. This tube is the most awesome goddamn force in the whole godless world.

So turn off your television sets. Turn them off right now! So turn off your television sets. Turn them off right now! Turn them off and leave them off. Turn them off and leave them off. Turn them off.
