Songs For Our Times # 6

Trent Tomlinson on TIDAL

I believe music can inspire, give hope, make you cry, make you think, and a million other things. I want to start posting some music that I really think speak to the times we are in. As you know, I listen to everything so tune in every day, never know what you will get.

For our 6th song, I have picked If I Were The Devil by Trent Tomlinson. I picked this one because, well, if I were the devil right now and looking at our country, I would think things couldn’t get much better.

lyrics:

If I were the devil
I’d find a way somehow
To make man think he created god
And not the other way around
What you’d see on TV
Would seem like the gospel truth
I’d make right look so wrong
And make wrong look so cool
Anything to you out of heaven
If I were the devil

If I were the devil
Everyone would just see color
I’d take all religions
And then turn em against each other
I’d sit back and love it
And watch love fuel the hate
Then light fires on the evening news
And let em fan my flames
Bring everybody down to my level
If I were the devil

I would just keep doing what I’m doing
Cuz what I’m doing’s sure is working out
If you don’t believe me I can prove it
All you need to do is look around
Yeah, I’d be thinking things can’t get much better
If I were the devil

I would just keep doing what I’m doing
Cuz what I’m doing’s sure is working out
If you don’t believe me I can prove it
All you need to do is look around
Yeah, I’d be thinking things can’t get much better

If I were the devil
When it’s all said and done
I’d be the coward that I am
And I’d tuck tail and run
I’d hide out in my darkness
That I’m destined to regret
If were the devil
Hell, I’d be scared to death
