“The Devil In I” is the fourth track on .5: The Gray Chapter, as well as the album’s second single.
Corey Taylor explained the song’s meaning to The Pulse of Radio: “‘The Devil In I’ is really about the war inside yourself,” he said. “Trying not to give into defeatism, trying not to give into negativity, trying not to give up basically. It’s a struggle. It’s one of the hardest things you can do, is to give into that side of yourself.” And that you can have fun. Crahan also explained at the song was about “finding past devils, past things, becoming one with it, and doing away with it.”

Reasons why I love metal: real instruments real talent and no mfs blasting auto tune
