He also conceded in a 1995 interview that Sympathy for the Devil was also inspired by an old idea of Baudelaire.

In this track, the narrator recounts his exploits over the course of human history and warns the listener by saying this, “If you meet me, have some courtesy, have some sympathy, and some taste; use all your well-learned politesse, or I’ll lay your soul to waste”. The rock arrangement is intense here. The lyrics mentions on past atrocities on humans from Lucifer’s point of view. The trial and death of Jesus Christ is also included.
