Reading Amy’s post Saturday morning reminded me of this song by Alice Cooper, where he calls the devil or a demon a few names.
The Last Temptation of Christ was Alice’s first “Christian” album! For those who have never listened to this you might be surprised. Good lyrics on the struggles of life and telling the devil to leave.
I listened to this album a lot while trying to quit watching porn. The whole album is good. I really like this song, Lost In America, Nothing’s Free and Cleansed By Fire.
But this one song with him telling the devil to get out of his face…yeah! I listened to it a lot when I was tempted. I would fast forward to the end of the song where he says…
I tell ya right now
I don’t want your reptile embrace
I don’t want to follow you down
to your place
I don’t want to be a child of disgrace
You can take your whiskey soaked, foaming
at the mouth, toilet talking, pea soup
spewing, sweating blood demon breath out
of my face
And sing along as loud as I could!
