  Infidels session 4, Power Station NYC - 14.apr.1983, album version  

Look out your window baby, there's a scene you'd like to catch
The band is playin' Dixie, a man has his hand outstreched
Could be the fuhrer, could be the local priest.
You know sometimes Satan, you know, he come as a man of peace.

He got a sweet gift of gab, he got a harmonious tongue
Knows every song of love that ever has been sung
Good intentions can be evil, both hands can be full of grease.
You know that sometimes Satan come as a man of peace.

Well first he's in the backyard an' then he's in the front
Both eyes are lookin' like they're on a rabbit hunt
Nobody can see thru him, no not even the chief of police
You know that sometimes Satan come as a man of peace.

Well, he catch you when you're hopin' for a glimpse of the sun
Catch you when your troubles feel like they weigh a ton
He could be standin' next to you, the person that you notice least.
I hear that sometimes Satan come as a man of peace.

Well, he can be fascinatin', he can be dull
He can ride down Niagara falls in the barrels of your skull
I can smell somethin' cookin', i can tell there's goin' to be a feast.
You know that sometimes Satan come as a man of peace.

He!s a great humanitarian, he's a great philanthropist
He knows just where to touch you, honey an' how you like to be kissed
He'll put both his arms around you, you can feel the tender touch of the beast.
You know sometimes Satan come as a man of peace.

Well howlin' wolf will howl tonite, king snake will crawl
Trees that stood for thousand years suddenly will fall
Wanna get married, do it now, tomorrow all activity will cease.
You know sometimes Satan come as a man of peace.

Somewhere mama's weepin' for her blue eyed boy
She's holdin' them little white shoes an' that little broken toy
An' he's followin' a star, the same one them three men followed from the east.
I hear sometimes Satan come as a man of peace, oh yeah!  up
