"Father Lucifer" is a piano song about the dark side of human nature with vivid character sketches. The song is part of Amos' first self-produced album, Boys for Pele.
On December 29, 2009 at the HMV Get Closer gig at London's Jazz Café, Tori jokingly added that her Christian father believed that he had inspired the song. When he learned that the song was about taking drugs, he declared, "Praise Jesus!"
