Sympathy For the Devil Lyrics

As I became more awake, these lyrics took on a more significant meaning for me for sure......

"Please allow me to introduce myself
I'm a man of wealth and taste
I've been around for a long, long year
Stole many a man's soul and faith Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my name But what's puzzling you
Is the nature of my game I stuck around St. Petersburg
When I saw it was a time for a change Killed the czar and his ministers Anastasia screamed in vain I rode a tank
Held a general's rank When the blitzkrieg raged
And the bodies stank Pleased to meet you
I watched with glee While your kings and queens
Fought for ten decades For the gods they made
I shouted out,"Who killed the Kennedys?"
When after all It was you and me Let me please introduce myself
I'm a man of wealth and taste And I laid traps for troubadours
Who get killed before they reached Bombay Just as every cop is a criminal And all the sinners saints As heads is tails
Just call me Lucifer Cause I'm in need of some restraint"
