Lyrics to Lucifer (No Doubt) : It is Dollars, it is Euros, it is Sullis, it is Pounds, it is Crowns, it is Yens, it is Lyons Still the clouds are gray, did u want us to believe that u love us, more than u love yourself We have been waiting, to trust u since, had u praying on blood wounded knees, for u to hear us out, in distress, must confess, you have achieved what is best, for the devil to rule our lives, to ruin this world [CHORUS] Oh no doubt, I am loving you more than I love myself With your mouth, you stole my soul so I could not love myself Oh no doubt I am loving you more than I love myself With your mouth you took my soul so and so I cannot love myself For there was in our minds, our soul, in the world there are books, there are laws, there is religion, for confusion, for control Every corner there is dread, there is pain, is there love in the heart of man, for we know what we do
