Satan is public enemy number one
Wanted dead or alive for all the crimes on this land
Killing God's children one by one
Casting affliction upon the innocent man

But as it were in the beginning
So shall it be in the end
God's righteous people must rule again
So you're bound to be captured in the end

For it's easier for a camel
To go through the eye of a needle
Than for wicked, wickedness
To enter the Kingdom of God, I say

Look what you've done to mankind
You planted the seed of crime in our children's mind
Even the suckling on the breast
Now becoming an awful test

For it's easier for a camel
To go through the eye of a needle
Than for wicked, wickedness
To enter the Kingdom of God, I say

Satan is public enemy number one
Wanted dead or alive for all the crimes on this land
Killing God's children one by one
Casting affliction on the innocent man

Beelzebub, I say
You
