Motherfucker but the devil is a lie
The devil is a lie, bitch I'm the truth
The devil is a lie, bitch I'm the proof
The devil is a lie, the devil is a lie
Bitch I'm alive, the devil is a lie
The Devil Is A Lie is a corruption of the popular phrase The Devil Is A Liar. The phrase comes from John 8:44:
You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.
Basically, the devil is a lie refers to two things:
- The devil will use any trick to deceive you and get you away from God.
- The devil does not actually exist.
While the devil may not exist, Ross certainly does — and he is the TRUTH, meaning he is the polar opposite of the Devil. While the devil is trying to hold you back, Ross is there to look after his people and guarantee they gon eat.
Notice the world play Ross utilizes with “lie”/“truth”.
