Satan Is My Motor
Cake Lyrics


I've got wheels of polished steel
I've got tires that grab the road
I've got seats that selflessly hold my friends
And a trunk that can carry the heaviest of loads

I've got a mind that can steer me to your house
And a heart that can bring you red flowers
My intentions are good and earnest and true
But under my hood is internal combustion power

And Satan is my motor (Satan is my motor)
Hear my motor purr
Satan is my motor, motor (Satan is my motor)
Hear my motor purr
Satan is the only one who seems to understand

I've got brakes, I'm wide awake
I can stop this car at any time
At the very last second I can change direction
Turn completely around if I feel so inclined

I've got a mind that can steer me to your house
And a heart that can bring you red flowers
My intentions are good and earnest and true
But under my hood is internal combustion power

And Satan is my motor (Satan is my motor)
Hear my motor purr
And Satan is my motor, motor (Satan is my motor)
Hear my motor purr

And Satan is the only one who seems to understand
And Satan is my motor
Satan is my motor
Satan is my motor
Satan is my motor
Satan is my motor
Satan is my motor (hear my motor)
Satan is my motor
Satan is the only one who seems to understand

Just think about the Lyrics. It is disgusting to hype such messages. Don't misunderstand me. If you only look at the song in a musical, technical way then you can't say something against it, but if you understand what the Lyrics are saying then its just terrifying. Think about on wich side youre standing. Think about who is really the one who understands you and loves you. I konw its easier not to belive. Its easier to say that it dosen't matter because this is all fictional. But it isen't.

Jesus is the only way. He says: Im the way, the truth and the life, no one comes to the father than through me.
Think about it. If youre not sure what im trying you to say, read in the Bible, you will find the answer in the new testament. for example in the chapter of John.

I won't forbid anyone to make music and to love it. But use the music for good news and not for thoughlessly worship of the bad.

Thanks for reading.

I remember being a kid in the back and my dad playing this album I was hooked especially with this song I still listen to it till this day. I thank my father for bringing me such great music.

Here's some useless information: When this album first came out, this son was called "Motor". After several mothers' complaints that their sons were listening to "Satanic" music, the song was renamed and a parental advisory sticker was put on the cover. I have one of the originals in which it's called "Motor". :)
