An excerpt from "White Faces," originally released on Evil One from 1980:

Friends with the beast because of sharp teeth
the devil so red the fiery evil bleib

White faces, white faces always haunt me so beautifully
learning temples meditating churches
always bring out the white of the devil in me.

The fat, the fat of demonism as ends begin
fangs gnashing at the beauty as in reaches in.

Colorful crucifixion riding the serpent dragon
fire breathing fire breathing with his serpent tongue a'waggin'
