  • The title track of Stryper's Fallen album tells of how the Devil was once Lucifer, an archangel in heaven, and why he fell. "It's the story of how he got kicked out of Heaven. He tried to overthrow God and take over," revealed vocalist Michael Sweet. "The song talks about how beautiful he was. When he walked, there was music. He was the angel of worship and this incredibly powerful and beautiful being."
