I'll say this once again
You people you are my friends
The devil he can't come in
Tonight, that's right

Looking for misery
But you found me
Lying naked on the floor
I was headed insane
The devil told me his name
But he's not welcome here
Anymore

Tell me what do you see
(What do you see)
When your looking at me
(When you look at me)
This sounds so responsibility
Is killing me
Inside, yeah

Looking for misery
But you found me
Lying naked on the floor
(Stay away, sweet misery)
I was headed insane
The devil told me his name
But he's not welcome here
Anymore

Stay away sweet misery
Stay away sweet misery

The pressures building with time
I made it up in my mind
I've got excused for all these things
That I tried in my life

Looking for misery
But you found me
Lying naked on the floor
(Stay away, sweet misery)
I was headed insane
The devil told me his name
But he's not welcome here
Anymore

Stay away sweet misery
Your not welcome anymore
Stay away sweet misery

    Guys, this song isn't about a girl. John said that he wrote this song when he was going through a hard time.
    Its pretty obvious, to be honest. I don't know how you relate a girl into this.

    These lyrics are wrong it's not "this sounds so responsibility" the real lyrics are " this social responsibility is killing me"

    I think this song is about him being with a girl that he wasn't really that fond of and then as he was trying to prove to himself that he didn't need that girl, but instead he screwed up and got back with her.

    Just when he was trying to fight off his misery, it went to haunt him and swallow him deeper into misery.

    It was aboutt his love who ruined who he was. I reckon the devil symbolises his ex who was that 'evil' to him he refers to heras the devil. And even though he's feeling broken and crushed... He still loves her, but wont admit iit.
