Drums in the darkness – a jungle clearing
fetish masks and gibbering lips
grass skirts, headdresses, face-paint leering
nocturnal trances, gyrating hips.
A medicine man, by spirits possessed,
grunts while the powers invade his mind;
the dancers shriek, as if distressed
by a presence in shadow not yet defined.
It’s only Rock’n’Roll…

I’ve wondered if the Lord tried to give the somewhat revealing song “Sympathy For the Devil” to a few Christian songwriters who promptly rebuked Him as the devil and continued on their Christian songwriting ways. In frustration God turned to somebody who might be more receptive to his promptings…”Mick, have I got a song for you….”
I heard that those Yazidi sectarians who were taking refuge recently on the mountain in Kurdistan believe something weird about Lucifer – that he later repented, was forgiven and rejoined the angels…
hmmmmm. Sounds wacky.
