In the words of…Satan

February 3, 2014

I’ve been meaning to post this up for quite some time. There is a great song that I hear from time to time called “In the Words of Satan” by a South African Christian band called The Arrows. I find the words really powerful and telling but, I wanted to put it in my own words (I’m not blind to the irony in that statement, lol). Basically, it’s Satan letting you in on his “game plan” for the human race. Here is my rewording of what I hear when I listen to that song. A link to the original song will be at the bottom for you to check out if you’d like.

I’ve been here before any of you existed

By now, I know exactly how you work

I know all of your cravings

I know what makes you go bezerk

Been lying from the start just to make you play a part

in my Great Rebellion against the Father God

I hate everything He is

And I’ll make you hate him too

Make you hate him with your actions

it’s so easy for me to do’

Cause you like it…

“Sinning” feels good for the ego…

You love it…just admit it, let your hair go!

And every day I’m looking for ways to wind you up

Like my perfect little puppet, you’re my favorite robot,

you think you’re watching the world

but I’m the one who’s watching you

and all of hell is with me too,

helping me make my lies look true

Oh and believe me, there is a lie that works for everyone. Everyone.

A lie that opens your hearts so I can get me some more of your free will

I’m winding you

Winding you

Give me the control that’s why I’m telling you

Selling you



Appealing to your human way of being and I use it all against you

just to keep your eyes from seeing past the life you’re living

Past the moment you’re in

Past the pleasure of your sin

Or the drug in your system

Choke on your lust

I’ll make you drunk with pride and hate

So deeply spun into my system that you won’t see the light

Never mind that I’m drowning you

I keep deceiving you…

`Cuz I don’t tell you

Bout the God in Heaven

Who loves you

Who yearns for you, no

I don’t tell you

`Bout the freedom of forgiveness and truth

Why would I tell you?

Why would I tell you, the truth?

Instead, I’ll say that millions of years ago an anomaly exploded

And you’re the result of this cosmic unknown, with no real purpose

You weren’t created for any real intent

The “reason” for your living or existence is so statistically impossible; it might as well be considered coincidence!

So all the remains is what you can gain and whatever meaning you attach to your days…you decide

Mmm, but I help you recognize the important things in life

Introducing money! It’s the root of all evil…or so they say

The concept is simple: I attach your self-worth to the salary you’re paid.

Be a slave to your desire for property

Your jewelry

Your cars and material things

Advertise that lie up on the TV so you want that bling

Selling and compromising bit by bit the little pieces of your soul, all to climb up the ladder of economic control

Oh, the greed of man makes it so easy to pervert the Father’s plan

Or I’ll tell you…

Sure, there is a heaven…but there’s many ways to get in…

Then see people fight over which is the best way to view the world

Keep you so confused with the search for the truth that you will be paralyzed from actually looking for the truth

Tell you there are many ways to the same God…it’s all relative.

For you religious people, I’ll keep you distracted with your methods so your heart stays hard,

I’ll make you think you’ve got spirituality,

but it’s really just emotional alchemy

Oh, the vanity of self-idolatry

I never let you see that it breeds

Hedonism! Whoo!

And it’s the anthem of this generation

Come on, drink it, snort it, smoke it, swallow it

Chew on my illusion of freedom til you vomit it

Still I don’t tell you

Bout the God in Heaven

Who loves you

Who yearns for you

No I don’t tell you

Bout the freedom of forgiveness and truth

Why would I tell you?

Why would I tell you the truth?
