The Donkey​-​Headed Adversary Of Humanity Addresses The Artist (Trying And Failing To Be Evil)

about

The D.H.A.O.H. appears courtesy of Sleepytime Gorilla Museum. The idea is that it is not Humanity's place to embrace Evil. There must be an adversary for there to be positivity in the world. The D.H.A.O.H. addresses the artist who is at once "invoking" this Evil force with his music but also attempting to "add a disclaimer" by insisting it is not his voice but the D.H.A.O.H. itself speaking through the music. This creates a bit of a paradox. This a complicated concept, if you don't get it it's probably best to just enjoy the tune.

lyrics

"You wanna be Evil?
Well then try and be like me."
-The human

"I am the adversary, and I must remain the adversary.
I am not yours to embrace. I am not yours to invoke.

So what the fuck are you doing?
You're embracing Evil? You're invoking Evil?
I am the adversary, and I must remain the adversary
Of all humankind.

I am not yours to embrace. I am not yours to invoke.

So what the fuck are you doing now?"
-The D.H.A.O.H.
