Lyrics for Devil That I Know by Jacob Banks:

Intro
Mmm-mmm-mmm

Verse 1
We came forward, running backwards
No one mans a island, shotgun riding for ya
Somehow we made it, although jaded
Was it worth it all? Could it be more?

Verse 2
Overdosing, at least I'm with my baby
We can't get any higher, we can't get past Messiah
But we're still chasing for that feeling
Was it worth it all? Could it be more?

Verse 3
And oh, what a way to die
Standing eye to eye
Pretending we're alive as we grow colder
And oh, the devil that I know
Is better than the devil that I don't

Verse 1
So we came forward, running backwards
No one mans a island, shotgun riding for ya
Somеhow we made it, although jaded
Was it worth it all? Could it bе more?

Song Facts

From a CLASH conversation with Jacob Banks in October 2020:

Banks meditates on the concept of love and loss that runs through his songwriting. He forewarns of the cost of love, remarking how love is expensive and that it all comes to an end regardless of how you feel or what you want… particularly in relation to marginalised groups and conversations around oppression, Banks highlights that even though everything ends, something will always take its place. As many bury their heads in the sand amid the pandemic or run around pontificating on the dysfunction and division of society, a flicker of hope seeps through the cracks for Banks.
