I’ve thus far lived the life of a devil, by nature whose given power is to channel fire through his hands, hence I’ve set shit and people [figure of speech] on fire throughout this life. And I do genuinely believe if I was instead bestowed an angel’s power of handing out light, I’d be way worse. I’d feign my way through insidious conniving goodness only to blind people with my light then burn them away anyway. At least as a devil I have nothing to hide. What with being all sun-tanned and my general misanthropic demeanor.
Can these hands do more?
Like grace with immunity through the flames of a burning building and help evacuate those trapped inside? Set actual pure-crud-nasty-evil people aflame? These are all metaphors.
