Lucifer

by Chris Sorrenti


Lucifer - see us
See us living without fear
We are not your swing of tail
Lucifer – why are you still here?
Is the Bible not cast in stone?
To deliver us from your demonic wail

Oh yes - from the Book of Knowledge
you taught us to read
Oh no - but you never took the need for sin
And you’re Mescaline - Amphetamine - Heroin - PCP
You’re Cocaine - Codeine - Barbiturate...LSD!

Look look - look away away
Look - look look away
Look look - look away away
Look - look look away


Lucifer - hear us calling
We are not for sale
Lucifer - why are you still here?
Is the victor not to be hailed?
Are we never free of your games?

Oh yes - from the Book of Knowledge
You taught us to read
Oh no - but you never took the need for sin
And you’re Bigotry - Robbery - Murder - Jealousy
You’re Cheating - Lying - Jeopardy...Anarchy!!!

Look look - look away away
Look - look look away
Look look - look away away
Look - look look away


Lucifer - feel us reject your vile ways
Fearing no more the Beast and Dragon
With all their deceptive hate
Lucifer - hear us warning
You may win battles but not the war
The king of kings is one day coming
And we his soldiers stand on guard

Look look - look away away
Look - look look away
Look look - look away away
Look - look look away...

Author's Note: Revised several times over the years, could still use some work, but the words and way escape me for now. Still pretty happy at what it's become so far.

A strong beat to this song(in my mind, anyhow), a determined anthem of overcoming that which we CAN name. I really liked "we are not your swing of tail." Thanks, Chris.
