Based on the epic poem by John Milton.
|The Prince of Lies (to tempt our savior's young head)
Says, "If you're hungry, turn these rocks into bread."
Jesus says, "Man lives not on bread alone,
But by words from my Father on the throne."
And in the desert, Jesus, comtemplating,
Sees Satan hide behind a hermit's gazing.
So the Devil flies Him up to a hill:
Says, "If you jump, angels will keep you from killed."
Christ says, "You shall not tempt the Lord's mighty hand;
But just for now your loathsome presence I can stand."
And so he's walking with Jesus,
Conversing with God.
The Devil's walking with Jesus,
Still conversing with God.
Then Satan has Christ view the scope of the world:
All its conquerors and cultures unfurled;
He shows Him empires of Rome and Athens towns;
Says, "All this can be yours if you just bow down."
Christ says, "Only Socrates knew he knew nothin',
And Philosophy's been all downhill since then."
And so he falls then from Jesus,
No more talking with God.
So now he's fallen from Jesus,
No more conversing with God.
So now he's fallen forever,
No more a-tempting our God.
