Lyrics

The Devil's Goes High-Tech

(Verse 1)
Over fifty years ago
I asked you if you knew my name
You didn't have a clue
Of the nature of my game

(Verse 2)
The Devil turned to me
And he looked me in the eye
He said I understand
Why you'd swallow cyber lies

(Verse 3)
I live in your computer
In your laptop and iPhone
Access to seven billion
Exponentially has grown

(Verse 4)
I'll bet you didn't know
That algorithms come from hell
And as a consequence
The world is now under my spell

(Chorus)
I target your libido
Gotta feed it 'til you bust
I'm just the one you need
Because my specialty is lust

High Tech made it so simple
To ignore what's wrong or right
Just bite into my Apple
And I'll get you through the night

(Verse 5)
Well all of my new temptations
Like a magic carpet ride
Take anything you want
You will never be denied

(Verse 6)
Whatever your perversion
I can satisfy your urge
Real or artificial
It's all just gonna merge

(Verse 7)
We got 3D and 5G
Virtual reality
No need to push a button
Just think it and you'll see

(Verse 8)
All you got to do
Is pay the price-you understand
Then you can control
Your inhumanity to man

(Chorus)
Just give me your libido
Gotta feed it 'til you bust
I'm just the one you need
Because my specialty is lust

High Tech made it so simple
To ignore what's wrong or right
Just bite into my Apple
And I'll get you through the night

solo

(Chant-gregorian style)

Get down on your knees
Now you must worship me
You see I control the random digits
That make up your reality
Rejoice!--Rejoice! at my high tech wizardry

(Laugh)

(Chorus)
I target your libido
Gotta feed it 'til you bust
I'm just the one you need
Because my specialty is lust

High Tech made it so simple
To ignore what's wrong or right
Just bite into my Apple
And I'll get you through the night

Well I'm sure the Pope and Jesus
Will think your life's a wreck
But they shouldn't be surprised
When the devil goes high tech

Loved this songs composition and it has meanings for today. And the great message moves many mostly forward into the next line. The musical bridge transports and it's very easily commercial if it has the proper marketing focus. You've got a good song here once again. I can't wait to see the mega monetary successes as each one you share with me through Broadjam is progressively getting better.
