Ditto Voltaire(the musician)'s Almost Human. The lyrics are the devil pleading his case as a sympathetic figure, but he can't even keep the malice and boastfulness in until he's done.The point of Milton’s “Paradise Lost” is that Satan is a liar!

Yeah, especially (mild book spoilers ahead):In Game of Thrones, being honorable or a decent human being doesn't actually get you killed and being a cynical backstabbing asshole doesn't mean you win. Probably the most effective factions or leaders, namely the Tyrells Starks and Tywin Lannister, are the ones who behave most decently and honorably in their dealings. And Tywin's more evil tendencies lead directly to his death.
