Lyrics to “Please Say No” by The Devil Wears Prada

Foot by foot down the stairs
No tinge of twilight between the floorboards
One man followed by another – deep south, beneath, under
Slowly entering the cellar

Foot by foot down the stairs
No tinge of twilight between the floorboards
One man followed by another – deep south, beneath, under
Slowly entering the cellar

Please say no
Think about when she was
In your arms
(Down below, down below)
Please say no
Think about when she was
In your arms
(Down below, down below)
Please say no

Let them bells ring as they did years ago
Let that choir sing and so it goes
He begs for every coin as they promise to reap and sow
She begs to be employed
Down below

Please say no
Think about when she was
In your arms
(Down below, down below)
Please say no
Think about when she was
In your arms
Down below
Please say no!

The poor are giving and the priests are taking!
The poor are giving and the priests are taking!
Down below!

Please say no
Think about when she was
In your arms
Down below
Please say

More The Devil Wears Prada

The Devil Wears Prada have announced a tour ahead of the release of their forthcoming album The Act, out October 11.

The band will be hitting the road a week after the release with Norma Jean and Gideon. They spoke a bit about their new era and their aim to push the boundaries of metal.

“We wanted to do something that actually tests the boundaries,” vocalist Mike Hranica  says. “You don’t see that in rock, and there’s so little invention in rock these days. With Roots Above to look at it from that perspective was us moving from screamo to metalcore. That was the objective of that record, according to my memory at least. That’s not so much what The Act is.”

Hranica says this new album feels like a make-or-break moment for the band. He and the other members don’t want to stifle themselves by remaking the same music, so they’re playing with their sound in ways they never have before.

“I think there are safer options as far as what we could have done with our seventh record,” he explains. “We didn’t want to do that. We wanted to do something that tries to avoid the tiredness and nail it in. Being complacent, which I think would have been making the ‘safer’ record, is something that we deeply look to avoid, and by making a record that we think is going to try people or catch them off guard is something we intentionally signed up for.”
