"Satan Has a Heart of Gold" as written by Robert Theberge, Zachary Tipton, James Firebaugh and Derek Schulz....
Mama says Satan's got a heart of gold
Papa says Jesus got a heart of stone, yeah
Everyone says I got a heart of stone
But Satan says I got a heart of gold

I know the truth
I know the truth
I know the truth
I know the truth

(2x)

Mama says Satan's got a heart of gold
Papa says Jesus got a heart of stone, yeah
Everyone says I got a heart of stone
But Satan says I got a heart of gold

I know the truth and I believe 'em
I know the truth and I believe 'em
I know the truth and I believe 'em
I know the truth and I believe 'em
I know the truth and I believe 'em
I know the truth and I believe 'em
I know the truth and I believe 'em
I know the truth and I believe 'em

Mama says Satan's got a heart of gold
Mama says Satan's got a heart of gold
Mama says Satan's got a heart of gold
Mama says Satan's got a heart of gold

    General CommentI like this song a lot for its ambiguity. The song is about some dude who is torn between whether he is an inherently good or bad person. At first I thought it was more clear cut, because I thought the ending of the song said "I know the truth and I believe him." I thought that meant the narrator agreed with Satan that he had avarice in his heart. That coupled with the ending lines about Satan seemed to imply that. But now that I hear it more and read these lyrics, "I believe 'em" can mean either Satan who believes he is evil or "Everyone" who thinks he is a good person. It sounds like "'em" or "him," really. And so only the narrator knows the truth, and I like the song because of that mystery.
