Well, he's the prince of the world
His work is never complete
And though he promises all
You'll lie a slave at his feet

Don't you know the world is his dominion?
Can't you see that you're bound in his chains?
The time is short so take your strength in what remains, oh

He will fill up your ears
And he'll dazzle your eyes
But don't believe what he's saying
'Cause he's the father of lies, uh

In your heart don't you know that he'll betray you?
In the end he will drag you away
Till all the world is crying for the judgement day

And he's fallen, how he's fallen
From the heights of the morning star
Though his light's still shining brightly
It's the mask of the great deceiver
The great deceiver

Though the truth has walked among us
And the words that he spoke will remain
There's a heartbreaking blindness upon us
All our efforts to be free are in vain
Without the gift of love
We're lost without the love

Well he never will rest
Until his evil is done
And he don't want you to know
Your freedom's already won

Don't you know the world is his dominion?
Can't you see he keeps it in chains? Oh
Time is short so take your strength in what remains

He's fallen, oh he's fallen
From the height of the morning star
Though his light's still shining brightly
It's the mask of the great deceiver
The mask of the great deceiver
He's going to make you a believer

He'll tell you lies
He'll betray your eyes
The great deceiver
