Maybe just a nice cold brew, what's a beer
That's the devil in my ear, I been sober a fuckin' year

from Eminem – Deja Vu Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

No matter how long you have been sober, it’s common to have occasional temptations. It’s frustrating when this “devil” talks into your ear telling you to just use again, that you can handle it.

Addiction is commonly referred to as cunning and baffling for that very reason.
