"You Need Satan More Than He Needs You" as written by Jack William Egglestone, Andrew Falkous and Kelson Louis Tregurtha Mathias....
God damn it’s gonna rain
I only brought my socks
The night might hide my shame
But she won’t dry my bones

The spell that brought me here
Dissipated when the weather turned
Yeah sure, Satan rules but
that doesn’t mean I can’t be practical.

What kind of orgy leaves a sense of deeper love?
What kind of orgy leaves a sense of deeper love?
You need Satan more than he needs you
You need Satan more than he needs you

God damn it, what’s the time?
The babysitter needs a lift by nine
What’s with that fucking kid?
Now who will wax my crucifix?

My girlfriend brought me here
I gotta get her on the telephone
Clean up, fetch the goat
Every summer he can travel in the boot

What kind of orgy leaves a sense of deeper love?
What kind of orgy leaves a sense of deeper love?
You need Satan more than he needs you
You need Satan more than he needs you

It doesn’t look like a man
It doesn’t talk like a man
But does it fuck like a man
Does it, does it fuck like a man?

It doesn’t smell like a man
It doesn’t taste like a man
But does it fuck like a man
Does it, does it fuck like a man?

    General Commenti think its about joining a group or an organization and basing all your beliefs on the group. the first verse talks about how he has become less enamored with the group. he says its cool to be in a group, but being in a group doesn't have to consume you. i think the orgy line is meant to say that being a part of something is supposed to be fun not filled with commitment and lifestyle changes. "you need satan more than he needs you" i think means that people need to feel a part of something more than the group cares about a small insignificant member. i dont really get the second verse but theres a couple lines that i think still point to the earlier parts. and the outro im sure has a similar meaning but idk falco is too smart for me.
    all in all this is a joke on religion and AA but taken from the point of a satanist, also a joke on the satanists who dont get made fun of enough i think. i like how he took the role of a satanists because it wouldve sounded stupid "you need jesus more than he needs you" in my opinion

    General CommentCan have multiple explanations, for example, a dig at Christians who 'need' satan to exist for their deity to exist.

    General CommentI thought he said "I gotta Vicar on the telephone" meaning that even the pious aren't what they seem. Following up with "clean up, fetch the goat" I had it in my mind the Vicar was going to perform the slaughter to appease Satan.
