lyrics

Hey Lucifer, what would you prefer?
A song with a beat or a sweet, slow mellow groove?
Hey Lucifer, you think you could defer
Destruction and corruption if I sang for you?

When things go bad, and they keep going bad a lot
People stop and pray and hope for respite some day
I believe in God, don’t get me wrong, I’m not a Satanist
But I thought I’d take the back route, not trying to be cute
What the Hell do I have to lose?
We both know what your profit is here
You whisper in his ear, “Send more troops, make smaller chicken coops,
But act cool, eat your Fruit Loops,
‘Cause breakfast is good for you, And you don’t care who
Is starving for some carbs and for some loving”
And meanwhile he responded better than you ever thought he would

Hey Lucifer, what would you prefer?
A song with a beat or a sweet, slow mellow groove?
Hey Lucifer, you think you could defer
Destruction and corruption if I sang for you?

Just one more thing, and I’ll let you get back to your lot
Tell me ‘bout the juntas, military hooplas, I guess you’re thinking, “What’s the fuss about?”
How’d you get the word around? You got my props for originality
Sex with a monkey, drugs from a junkie, and for the cure a virgin seals the deal
Risqué, your seduction has it all
Self-service is the key, give nothing back, stay on the track
Even altruism has a crack
But as long as I have you here, let me make this clear
I’m on to you, I’m not your average fool
And you’d be wrong if you were thinking that this is really
Just an Interlude
