Lyrics:
Something's wrong 'cause my mind is fading
And everywhere I look there's a dead end waiting
Temperatures dropping at the rotten oasis
Stealing kisses from the leperous faces

Heads are hanging from the garbage man trees
Mouthwash, jukebox, gasoline
Pistols are pointing at a poor man's pockets
Smilin' eyes whippin' out of their sockets
Got a devils haircut in my mind
Got a devils haircut in my mind
Got a devils haircut in my mind
Got a devils haircut in my mind

Love machines on the sympathy crutches
Discount orgies on the dropout buses
Hitching a ride with the bleeding noses
Coming to town with the briefcase blues
Got a devils haircut in my mind
Got a devils haircut in my mind
Got a devils haircut in my mind
Got a devils haircut in my mind

Whatcha gonna do now, gigolo?
I'm gonna throw it down
Break it down


Something's wrong 'cause my mind is fading
Ghetto-blasting, disintegrating
Rock and roll, know what I'm saying?
And everywhere I look there's a devil waiting
Got a devils haircut in my mind
Got a devils haircut in my mind
Got a devils haircut in my mind
Got a devils haircut in my mind

Got a devils haircut in my mind!
Got a devils haircut in my mind!
Devils haircut in my mind!
Devils haircut in my mind!
 
The Song:

"Dark and Lovely" is a groovy reconstruction of "Devils Haircut." The Dust Brothers were behind it, adding some keyboard flourishes, a superb bassline, lots of percussion, and an opera singer. Pretty bad-ass actually.

From what I can tell, there's no relation to Barry White's classic of the same name.
