ApologetiX - Singled You Out lyrics

Parody of "Figured You Out" by Nickelback
(1 Peter 5:8, James 4:7, Hebrews 10:25, Proverbs 18:1,
1 Corinthians 10:12, John 10:10, 2 Corinthians 2:11, Psalm 7:1-2, Psalm 17:11-12, Proverbs 1:32-33)

I like to prance around your street
And I'm like a lion that wants more meat
And I like the wayward selfish sheep
Who are not looking out for me
They're like my favorite thing to eat

And I love to play to their egos
And I love to keep them off their toes
And I love to make them think they know
Too much to fall under control
Of another power not their own

And now I'm going to devour the ones in my power
'Cause I singled you out
(The devil is a roaring lion)
And now I'm going to devour the ones in my power
'Cause I singled you out
(1 Peter says in chapter 5)

I like the fickle ones the best
They like it when their lives stay blest
They like to think they're not possessed
Till I put them to the test
I like when pride stays unconfessed

And I know the way to stack the deck
And I love a good life I can wreck
And I might attack with wealth or sex
While I put doubts in their heads
I love a scandal's chain effect

And now I'm going to devour the ones in my power
'Cause I singled you out
(The devil is a roaring lion)
And now I'm going to devour the ones in my power
'Cause I singled you out
(The devil is a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour)
(He's got to go if you resist)

I'm like a panther on your street
And I like a church where no-one meets
And I'm on my way to steal some sheep
Front doors open up for me
They're like my slaves if they're deceived

And I hate the place I have to go
But I'll take some people with me though
And I hate the faithful that say no
To every bald lie that I've told
I hate the power that they hold

And now I'm going to devour the ones in my power
'Cause I singled you out
(The devil is a roaring lion)
And now I'm going to devour the ones in my power
'Cause I singled you out
(The devil is a roaring lion, in chapter 4 of James you'll find)
(He's got to go if you resist)

1 Peter 5:8
Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.
