Evil In My Chair
Lyrics: John Popper
Music: John Popper

There's evil in my chair
Yeah, there's evil in my chair
There's evil in my chair
He's simply sitting over there
There's evil in my chair

He's simply staring back at me

And he is watching my T.V.
Yeah, he is staring back at me
He wants to keep me company
Yeah, there's evil in my house

And he needs a ride downtown
Yeah, I got to give him a ride downtown
Yeah, I'm driving him downtown
Because he wants to hang around
There's evil in my car

He's flicking ashes on my floor
He's flicking ashes on my floor
He's putting butts out on my floor
He knows just what I'm looking for
There's evil in my car

And he keeps to the down low
But he don't like driving slow
He knows just where to go
Because he's always in the know
And evil's gonna drive a while

And I'm reeling from the fix
And a whiff can make me sick
At the time it did the trick
Now I don't care if the time ticks
And evil's gonna try to get me home

I get lost along the way
And there's nothing I can say
Yeah, I get lost along the way
A little farther every day
And evil won't admit a Goddamned thing

Evil got me home
And he thinks I shouldn't be alone
Until I'm better he'll be there
Its like he really seems to care
There's evil in my chair

Yeah, it doesn't matter where
I will find him waiting there
There's evil in my chair

Evil in my chair
Evil
Evil in my chair
In my house
Evil in my house
Evil in my house
Evil in my house
Evil
Evil
Gonna live in my house
Evil
Evil in my house
Sit in my chair
Watch my tv
It doesn't bother me

There's evil in my chair/He's simply staring back at me
John essentially wrote this song about himself. From a 1999 online chat:
My recent heart condition is symptomatic to a longtime addiction to food. Being diabetic, it's a medical fact that there are some foods that will kill me. Doughnuts come to mind. One night I was being very good on my diet and I saw an ad for Dunkin Donuts comes on TV. Suddenly I feel as though I'm being pulled to do something destructive, though I didn't want to. I then transferred my addiction into the form of some guardian angel gone wrong. And the song kind of wrote itself.
