"Prince of Darkness" as written by Marc Connors and James Paul Cooper....
An angel fell one stormy night
From heaven's glory
He split the earth to reign in hell
Waoh o-oh
He fears the light
He fears the truth
He fears what's going to be
He spits on life
He spits on God
He spits up death for you and me

Prince of Darkness
Studies the world with hungry eyes
Prince of Darkness
Ready to baptize you in lies
Heart of evil
Soul of blackness
Prince of Darkness

He saw the man was just a boy
With a baby's mind
He swore damnation of God's creation
Waoh o-oh
He lives for hate
He lives for tears
He lives up to his name
He knew the light
He knew the one
Who was crucified in pain

Prince of Darkness
Studies the world with hungry eyes
Prince of Darkness
Ready to baptize you in lies
Heart of evil
Soul of blackness

He fears the light
He fears the truth
He fears what's going to be
He spits on life
He spits on God
He spits up death for you and me

Prince of Darkness
Studies the world with hungry eyes
Prince of Darkness
Ready to baptize you in lies
Prince of Darkness
Studies the world with hungry eyes
Prince of Darkness
Ready to baptize you in lies
Prince of Darkness

He smells the breath of sweet human sin
And deeply breathes it in
Prince of Darkness

    General CommentI cannot believe that there was only one song from Raise Your First and Yell on here; it's his best album in my opinion. As for the song meaning I think it's pretty obvious if you just read the lyrics, it's about the devil.

    General CommentThis was the title song for John Carpenter's movie Prince of Darkness. It plays during Alice's cameo, when he recreates the "bicycle impalement" trick from his stage show.
