Sympathy for the Devil

You will never know me,” the archangel reminds,
As he wipes his blood soaked sword clean.
My dear brother,” Lucifer says, “Good boys shouldn’t lie.”

You stand and watch as the heavens divide,
And you, piece by piece, break down the machine.”
My dear brother,” Lucifer says, “Good boys shouldn’t lie.

Where were you, brother, when I fell from the sky?
And where is the father who built your wings?”
You will never know me,” the archangel reminds,

You disobeyed and so he broke your stride,
So don’t you try to teach about loyalty.”
My dear brother,” Lucifer says, “Good boys shouldn’t lie.

For so long, I watched us be cast aside.
You know I loved Father with all my being.”
You will never know me,” the archangel reminds.

And at your hand, these people do die,
Because they hold your mind, and yet you feel nothing.”
You will never know me,” the archangel reminds.
My dear brother,” Lucifer says, “Good boys shouldn’t lie.”
