Isaiah 14.12-14


Revelation 13.18

He came like a savior from the east
With the face of an angel
But the soul of a beast
Out of war he promised peace
And to all, prosperity
We trusted him and that was when
He brought us to our knees

We wanted an end to all our fears
He told us peace would reign a thousand years
And as we swallowed up his lies
Slowly we were paralyzed
He sealed our fate, then far too late
We saw through his disguise

Six sixty six
It was hard to believe we could be so deceived by
Six sixty six
For a mark on our skin we sold our souls to him

Without it no one could buy or sell
He made the world his throne, this prince of Hell
And those who would not worship him
Were never seen or heard again
His word was law, we surrendered all
But we prayed for life to end

Six sixty six
It was hard to believe we could be so deceived by
Six sixty six
For a mark on our skin we sold our souls to him

And there came a beast from the sea,
And the whole world was amazed
and followed after the beast.
And they worshiped Satan the dragon
because he gave his authority to the beast.
And the second beast of the earth came and deceived all who dwelt in the earth,
causing all to be given a mark.
So let him who has understanding
 calculate the number of this beast,
For his number is that of man —
His number is six six six.

He made war against the saints
He cut them down and filled their graves
He blasphemed God in His dwelling place
And mocked His holy name

Six sixty six
It was hard to believe we could be so deceived by
Six sixty six
For a mark on our skin we sold our souls to him

We sold our souls
Oh, beware of his lies, don't be fooled by his tricks
