About the song Edit
"El Diablo" tells a story about selling your soul to the Devil, with lyrics that include the line "I can't stand another howling day inside this empty skin".
The single was issued in Spain as a one-sided promotional-only 7" record, and is highly sought after among collectors all over the world because of its unique picture sleeve. The single is extremely rare even in Spain with the flip side having a generic un-filled record label.

- "El Diablo" - 6:05
Enter newborn players and gather weight their innocence Only the brightest shine but not forever Many lights die, many tears rain When those tears run dry on a mountain madness day You were just in time for a foolish deal for love I sold Can't stand another howling day inside this empty skin While the beacons burn, I'll say "Await return from so far away" One life with the devil do I play for so long El Diablo is to blame, oh Oh El Diablo, El Diablo Won't you sell me back my soul? Oh El Diablo, El Diablo Won't you sell me back my soul? Wedding is on the wind does she blow my way? She can dance and she can sing, she will tear your heart away While the promise burns, I'll stay and you will return from so far away One life with the devil do I play for so long El Diablo is to blame One life with the devil do I play for so long El Diablo is to blame One life but the devil is in my way Oh
