"Lucifer's Angel" as written by Lauri Yloenen, Pauli Rantasalmi, Aki Hakala and Eero Heinonen....
Behind those eyes lies the truth and grief
Behind those beautiful smiles, I've seen tragedy
The flawless skin hides the secrets within
Silent forces that secretly ignite your sins

[Chorus:]
Fly away
Fly away
From the torch of blame
They hunt you â?? the Lucifer's angel
Never lived
You never died
Your life has been denied
They call you
The Lucifer's angel

Beyond these clouds you can hide all your tears
Beyond this world you'll be safe from their wicked fears
In their hearts they fear your demands
And their minds
Won't accept you, they'll never understand

[Chorus]

On your own
I know you can make it
Truth or bone
I know you can shake it
Survive alone
I know you can take it

[Chorus]

Fly away
Fly away
Fly away
Fly away
Hide away
Hide away
The Lucifer's angel
Fly away
Fly away
Hide away
Hide away
The Lucifer's angel
Fly away
Fly away
Run away
Run away
Hide away
Hide away
Lucifer's angel

    General CommentI think it's about something to do with witch burning except maybe she's a real witch...a girl with amazing powers who is so beautiful, and maybe it's the Christian Church or something that's trying to hunt her down, and I see the singer as someone who sees the story happening and tries to help the girl, although he can't do much. I love this song, i find it really deep and moving. 'm sure the girl it talks about has some great and terrible challenge or task she has to complete. I mean, it's so vivd i don't see it as a metaphor but a real story.

    General CommentI think this song is about a Fallen Angel, an angels who adores Satan, but I'm not quite sure about that.

    General CommentThis song is based on a Finnish legend about a witch, or something along those lines, that has visions and the other people can't accept her because she's different.

    It's about how soceity can't/won't accept people who are different.

    This one of the best songs of the new album.

    General CommentGoth I agree. I LOVE the Rasmus with a DEEP passion, this is one of my fav. It's about, a person that adores darkness and is teased. "They hunt you," And they also call on her to help in there times of need "They call you"

    General CommentThis song is about a girl who is incredibly beautiful (see first verse) and because of this and maybe some power she has, the townspeople shun her, calling her "Lucifer's Angel", again referring to either her beauty (for Lucifer was the most beautiful angel of all before he fell) or some power she possesses or likely, both.

    The reason I say this is because it seems to be human nature to, when you see someone who's as beautiful as the song describes, just want to scratch their eyes out. Even without knowing the girl, you feel that instant jealousy and convince yourself that she must be mean or evil or sold her soul for her beauty, don't you think?

    Also, the second verse ("their minds won't accept you, they'll never understand") strongly indicates some sort of power possesed by this girl, alienating her even further.

    The fact that the girl sheds tears shows that she isn't evil at all, just lonely and isolated. I tend to think that she might even have died (commited suicide) as she is now "beyond these clouds" and "beyond this world", but that's not set in stone for me.

    That's my opinion, let me know what you think.

    General CommentIt's about the burning of the witches
    this quickly became my favorite song for that reason because alot of people were burned at the stake for being a witch and it was unfair

    General Commenti see alot of what you are saying Gianaryn, i see that this is about a beautiful girl who because of her beauty is shunned but she kept the hurt inside of her hidden behind her face. until she just had to get away, so she is seeking someplace were she will be accepted but the singer is saying that only beyond this world will you be accepted so you need to fly away. maybe is sugjestive of commiting suicide also when it says "never live, you never died" it is saying that you were never truly alowed to live because of lifes prejudices so killing yourself wont realy mean that you will die since you never got to live. anyways thats just what im getting pritty sad song it speeks to me.

    General CommentSomeone a few years back gave me the nickname 'Lucifer's Angel', I finnaly understand now.

    It's about someone whom has been hurt deeply in their past, going through hell on earth. To the point to where, hell seems like home. Always searching for the void in her heart. It's a hard life to go through, and even harder when you are being yourself, and are being shunned for it.

    Yes, it's about beauty, and in a simmilar way, it is about witches.

    Honestly, how many witches do you see that are green and disgusting?

    Beauty lies within the heart, not our clothing.

    And, witches are highly misunderstood in the past.

    To put it simply, a misunderstood girl, who gets picked on because of her beauty.
    Everyone has been there.
