Devil's Arcade Lyrics
The worms in the barrel, the hangin' sun
Those first nervous evenings of perfume and gin
The lost smell on your breath as I helped you get it in
The rush of your lips, the feel of your name
The beat of your...
The first word of the song is the key: Remember.
The song is a stream of thoughts of a Soldier,his love,and maybe his brother in arms, have flashing scenes of memories from before, during,and after the soldier was deployed. It's an evil game, a devils arcade,played by people in power, with the lives of people they'll never know, and don't care about! Bruce wonderfully evokes a dreamy,spooky,aura of love and horror from war.
One of His many great songs with multiple, or ambiguous interpretations!
