  • Woe to You Oh Earth and Sea for the Devil sends
    the beast with wrath because he knows the time is
    short Let him who hath understanding reckon the
    number of the beast for it is a human number its
    number is six hundred and sixty six
  • I lived alone my mind was blank I needed time to
    think to get the memories from my mind
  • What did I see? Could I believe? That what I
    saw that night was real and not just fantasy
  • Just what I saw in my old dreams were
    they reflections of my warped mind staring back
    at me?

3
The number of the beast, 1982
  • 'Cause in my dreams it's always there
  • the evil face that twists my mind and
    brings me to despair - Yeah! Night was black
    was no use holding back 'Cause I just had to see
    was someone watching me
  • In the mist dark figures move and twist was all
    this for real or just some kind of hell
  • 6-6-6 the Number of the Beast Hell and fire was
    spawned to be released
  • Torches blazed and sacred chants were praised
    as they start to cry hands held to the sky In
    the night the fires burning bright the ritual
    has begun Satan's work is done

4
The number of the beast, 1982
  • 666 the Number of the Beast Sacrifice is going
    on tonight This can't go on I must inform the
    law Can this still be real or some crazy dream
    but I feel drawn towards the evil chanting
    hordes they seem to mesmerize me...can't avoid
    their eyes
  • 666 the Number of the Beast 666 the one for you
    and me I'm coming back I will return And I'll
    possess your body and I'll make you burn
  • I have the fire I have the force I have the
    power to make my evil take its course

5
The Number of the Beast isnt Satanist
  • The texts tells about an inner struggle against
    an evil power
  • The theme is quite similar to the Delta blues
    ones
  • In the cover of the single, Eddie kills the devil

6
Judas Priest - Metal Gods (1982)
  • Weve taken too much for granted And all the time
    it had grown From techno seeds we first
    planted Evolved a mind of its own Marching in
    the streets Dragging iron feet Laser beaming
    hearts Ripping men apart
  • Metal gods Metal gods Machines are taking all
    over With mankind in their command In time theyd
    like to discover How they can make their demand

Bruce Sprinsteen Youngtown LP The Gost of Tom
Joad (1995)
  • Here in north east Ohio Back in
    eighteen-o-three James and Danny Heaton Found the
    ore that was linin' yellow creek
  • They built a blast furnace Here along the
    shore And they made the cannon balls That helped
    the union win the war
  • Here in Youngstown Here in Youngstown My
    sweet Jenny, I'm sinkin' down Here darlin' in
    Youngstown
  • Kept 'em hotter than hell I come home from 'Nam
    worked my way to scarfer A job that'd suit the
    devil as well
  • Taconite, coke and limestone Fed my children and
    made my pay Then smokestacks reachin' like the
    arms of god Into a beautiful sky of soot and clay
  • Well my daddy come on the 0hio works When he come
    home from world war two Now the yards just scrap
    and rubble He said, "hem big boys did what Hitler
    couldn't do" These mills they built the tanks and
    bombs

Bruce Sprinsteen Youngtown LP The Gost of Tom
Joad 1995
  • That won this country's wars We sent our sons to
    Korea and Vietnam Now we're wondering what they
    were dyin' for
  • From the Monongaleh valley To the Mesabi iron
    range To the coal mines of Appalacchia The
    story's always the same Seven-hundred tons of
    metal a day Now sir you tell me the world's
    changed Once I made you rich enough Rich enough
    to forget my name
  • When I die I don't want no part of heaven I would
    not do heavens work well I pray the devil comes
    and takes me To stand in the fiery furnaces of
    hell
  • The lyrics ego want to be punished as Robert
    Johnson in Me and the Devil blues

Bruce Springsteen - Devils and Dust 2005
  • Well I dreamed of you last night In a field of
    blood and stone The blood began to dry The smell
    began to rise Well I dreamed of you last night,
    Bobbie In a field of mud and bone Your blood
    began to dry And the smell began to rise (…) Now
    every woman and every man They wanna take a
    righteous stand Find the love that God wills And
    the faith that He commands I've got my finger on
    the trigger And tonight faith just ain't
    enough When I look inside my heart There's just
    devils and dust
  • I got my finger on the trigger But I don't know
    who to trust When I look into your eyes There's
    just devils and dust We're a long, long way from
    home, Bobbie Home's a long, long way from us I
    feel a dirty wind blowing Devils and dust I got
    God on my side And I'm just trying to
    survive What if what you do to survive Kills the
    things you love Fear's a powerful thing, baby It
    can turn your heart black you can trust It'll
    take your God filled soul And fill it with devils
    and dust
