Tool "Right in Two"

Angels on the sideline,
puzzled and amused.
Why did Father give these humans free will?
Now they're all confused.

Don't these talking monkeys know that Eden
has enough to go around?
Plenty in this holy garden.
Silly monkeys,
where there's one you're bound to divide it,
right in two.

Angels on the sideline,
baffled and confused.
Father blessed them all with reason
and this is what they choose?

Monkey killing monkey killing monkey
over pieces of the ground.
Silly monkeys,
give them thumbs they forge a blade
and where there's one they're bound to divide it,
right in two.

Monkey killing monkey killing monkey
over pieces of the ground.
Silly monkeys,
give them thumbs they make a club
and beat their brother down.

How they survive so misguided is a mystery.
Repugnant is a creature who would squander the ability
to live tonight in heaven,
conscious of his fleeting time here.

Cutting it all, right in two.
Cutting it all, right in two.
Cutting it all, right in two.
Cutting it all, right in two.

Fight over ground, over earth, over sky.
They fight over life, over blood, over air and light,
over love, over some, over none.
They fight or they die, Over what?
Over writing!


Marilyn Manson "The Refecting God"

Your world is an ashtray
We burn and coil like cigarettes
The more you cry your ashes turn to mud
It's the nature of the leeches, the virgin's
Feeling cheated
You've only spent a second of your life
My world is unaffected, there is an exit here
I say it is and then it's true,
There is a dream inside a dream,
I'm wide awake the more I sleep
You'll understand when I'm dead
I went to god just to see, and I was looking at me
Saw heaven and hell were lies
When I'm god everyone dies
Scar/can you feel my power?
Shoot here and the world gets smaller
Scar/scar/can you feel my power?
One shot and the world gets smaller
Let's jump upon the sharp swords
And cut away our smiles
Without the threat of death
There's no reason to live at all
My world is unaffected, there is an exit here
I say it is and then it's true,

There is a dream inside a dream,
I'm wide awake the more I sleep
You'll understand when I'm dead



"Each thing i show you is a piece of my death"
Shoot shoot shoot motherfucker
No salvation, no forgiveness
This is beyond your experience
Forgiveness...


Black Sabbath "Lord of This World"

Youre searching for your mind dont know where to start
Cant find the key to fit the lock on your heart
You think you know but you are never quite sure
Your soul is ill but you will not find a cure.

Your world was made for you by someone above
But you choose evil ways instead of love.
You made me master of the world where you exist
The soul I took from you was not even missed.

Lord of this world
Evil possessor
Lord of this world
Hes your confessor now!

You think youre innocent youve nothing to fear
You dont know me you say but isnt it clear?
You turn to me in all your worldly greed and pride.
But will you turn to me when its your turn to die?

no. I honestly wanted to discuss music written from the perspective of "the devil" but not those death metal "I worship you oh dark Lord" middle school drop out tunes..

no more like the honest perspective from the devil in all of us, and I think this is a perspective not often explored, either in literature or music, or even religion, but it is definitely an interesting one..

Libertine swigs Listerine
Ephedrine makes bad dreams
But I'm the reigning queen
Strawberries and cream taste supreme
But tulips on my organ make me scream
Oh the pain, oh the pleasure
It's my thrill, measure for measure
Pay the bill and wipe up later.

the problem is, you narrowed the title down to "from the perspective of the devil", instead of "the honest perspective from the devil in all of us".

the latter would have gotten you heaps of non deth-metal lyrics.

the former gets you GMKU.

which is why we're all just waiting for the rolling stones to show up.

ha.. I think it was too obvious GMKU.

in regards to this thread, I thought the first tune from Tool there really catches the whole Chris Walken "Prophecy" vibe of the whole jealous fallen angel bit. I think that in the whole event of blaming/identifying the devil (after all, he is attributed as the literal scapegoat in the old testament) in peoples lives, be it consciously looking for some wicked spirit to blame for all their ills, or just trying to find excuses for your own lot in life.. either way, from the proclaimed diviners to the current-day sadducees (the agnostics and atheists who do not believe in spirits), this whole search for a literal or figurative scapegoat distracts people from the joy of existence and accepting reality at face value. The indians say that you should never take anything in life personally, after all the universe (or the devil if you like) is not fucking with you. God is not fucking with you, nothing is fucking with you. Life is to exist, period. If a bunch of bad ass shit happens, it has no purpose or reason for happening other than as something else meant for you to experience. Searching for a devil to blame is petty and selfish, accepting your life as it is is perhaps the truest form of altruism in that you finally let go of your ego, even if just for a moment. The only devil to blame is the self-serving ego, which denies the fact that you are really just a link in a chain, not the chain itself.

If there is a devil (which I don't necessarily believe in, I do not accept duality) I think his laughter at humanity is best said in the lyric from "right in two" which sings, "How they survive so misguided is a mystery.
Repugnant is a creature who would squander the ability
to live tonight in heaven,
conscious of his fleeting time here.
"

The devil is perhaps the only figure who can laugh at the futility of the human ego, humans so preoccupied with trying to figure out how and why to live, and rarely ever just living, squandering the ability which most animals readily appreciate, to just exist rather then think about it all the damned time. To ponder on existence is to rob yourself of the simple spiritual pleasure of existing..

some devil

and of course there's satan is in my ass by evil superstars, couldn't find the song right away but here are the myrics:


Yeah! satan is in my ass
He wears a ballerina-outfit
And a fez
Satan is in my ass
And when he comes out
You hear the sound of brass!
Satan is in my ass
Next thursday he's gonna have a hypnotized sheep
For a guest
Well as you all know
He is somekind of a bad guy
But when he reads the papers nowadays
He has to hold back the kerosine in his eyes
Somewhere in a fortress he hides his mistress
I'm talking 'bout a plankton eating robotcow in a cardboard dress yeah!
Satan is in my ass
He wears an armour
And tries to make some pirouettes very fast
Satan is in my ass
And when he comes out
You hear the sound of brass!
Satan is in my ass
He's working on a puzzle
And he sings the jazz
And it goes something like
Te-dum-duw
Satan is in my ass
