Devil's Teardrop- A Fallen Angel's Stain

I wonder...
Wherever this nebulous varmint is
Here, there, everywhere 
Does he ever look to himself in shame
He who leaves his iniquitous stains 
For all the hatred he lays claim? 

He gives tongue to the anemic, weakened mettle
Wheezing his nidorous, putrid breath into its chambers, 
Leaving behind his dark black, deadly whispers
Of desolated emptiness- this demonic mister

He entombs them alive, those he perversely abducts
In his Cimmerian, shadowy hell 
Slither back to your bottomless pit 
You tenebrous angel from purgatory 
You don't deserve a capital 'A' 
In your God forsaken name 
Demon of greed and endless shame 

Conjuring up ways to wickedly ensnare
Those who've weakly stumbled to their knees 
You were cast down from the Great One's Home
You don't deserve this world to roam 

This is 'Lights Out'...
The demise of you and me 
And everything I used to be! 
Don't hurl me your meager crumbs of wretched love 
As you wickedly tally my teardrops in The Mighty's rain
You menacing angel- I'm aware of your despicable fame

I'm through dancing to your stygian, sooty song 
Go back to Hades where you chose to belong 
You cheat, you lie with your unlit callous facade 
You cerberus hound from hell- you are not from my loving God 

I see behind your lurid, false masquerade 
You, malevolent angel cast from Heaven above
I pray...
You incubus, you succubus
Recoil back to your wicked, burning inferno 
Go crawling back to your lake of fire
Ye who chose crepuscular, selfish desire 
And... Pathetically became you
