    This is my first in 'Satan in Music' threads. I don't in anyway stand behind Satan, but I will admit he's put the fear of God in me now and then.

    I respect the users here that don't believe in Satan, lucky you... and it probably doesn't matter anyway as long as you are living a good healthy life. That's how I feel about it.

    Anyway, here is a song about a guy... and... well... Satan is his motor. The band is Cake, the song is great... but I often wonder what it means, and what he was thinking about when he wrote it.

    Is Satan really his motor? Will he go to Hell for writing such a good song? What are your thoughts, please.

    Cake
    Satan Is My Motor


    I've got wheels,
    Of polished steel,
    I've got tires that drive,
    The road,

    I've got seats that selflessly,
    Hold my friends,
    And a trunk that can carry,
    The heaviest of loads,

    I've got a mind that can steer me,
    To your house,
    And a heart that can bring you,
    Red flowers,

    My intentions are good,
    And earnest, and true,
    But under my hood,
    Is internal combustion power,

    And Satan is my motor,
    Hear my motor power,
    Satan is my motor, motor,
    Hear my motor power,

    Satan is the only one,
    Who seems to understand,

    I've got brakes,
    I'm wide awake,
    I can stop this car,
    At anytime,

    At the very last second,
    I can change directions,
    Turn completely around,
    If I feel so inclined,

    I've got a mind that can steer me,
    To your house,
    And a heart that can bring you,
    Red flowers,

    My intentions are good,
    And earnest, and true,
    But under my hood,
    Is internal combustion power,

    And Satan is my motor,
    Hear my motor power,
    Satan is my motor, motor,
    Hear my motor power,

    Satan is the only one,
    Who seems to understand,
    Satan is my motor,

    Satan is my motor,
    Satan is my motor,
    Satan is my motor,
    Satan is my motor,

    Satan is my motor,
    Hear my motor power,

    Satan is the only one,
    Who seems to understand...

    Here's another written by an old college buddy of mine, an estranged Catholic.
    It's not clear from our Heaven or Hell thread what bearing authorship of such
    songs has on one's fate in the after-life.

    And for the record, I don't believe that the author of the previous song actually has Satan as his motor.

    -----------------------------------------------

    Devil Boy

    I slept through Easter yesterday
    Right through Christmas just the same
    The priest came up to me all up in arms
    He said, "Devil Boy what have you done?"

    The Jesuits rolled in their tanks to my front door
    While the Capuchins held a love-in on my front porch
    The Augustinians kept to themselves, stuck their tongues out in a row
    They said, "Devil Boy, it's off to hell you go!"

    So I'll sit and pray for her to call me there
    I'll burn that bridge a thousand times, on the cross I bear
    Just to wonder if you're listening from a soap box in the sky
    To finally realize my price, was it you or I?

    Hey Devil Boy
    We're gonna blow your house in
    Hey Devil Boy
    What do you think of that?

    For heaven's sake
    It's only been 2000 years
    And I can't wait any longer for you
    For heaven's sake
    I'd give away eternity
    If you would come back to me
    If you would come back to me

    I'd like to hear the music that goes with this song... or can you get the music? Tabs would be best.

    Have you heard the song I pasted? Great stuff. I also think he sings it in jest, but what compelled him to do so I wonder sometimes? Is it a song of frustration? A song of rebelion?

    Cake also has a Sheep go to Heavan, Goats go to Hell... wasn't there a bible quote floating around about that today? I will find the info if you don't know about that cake song, or about the Goats on the left, Sheep on the right scripture.

    Scroll down to find it. It's a pretty simple song to play.


    I've never really gotten into Cake, so I don't know that song.
    Too bad Nemesio won't let us trade.

    Yep. Music used to be my first love, until I discovered games. I played guitar in a college rock band.

    Well, I suck. I guess many would say I can play... but many would say I can play chess also... some would say I can not!

    I'll need to send my latest works out for you... I suck, but it's my music.

    This is another fun one to play, especially Nirvana style.

    A classic little ditty from Ben Folds Five:

    Satan is my Master

    right here, right now,
    Ben's gonna tell a little sad tale to,
    to all you...
    all you people out there...

    Satan is my master
    he has always been
    he tells me what to do
    he buys my Metallica records for me
    and sometimes I think...

    thank you very much

    Satan is my master
