And it's so easy when you're evil
This is the life, you see
The devil tips his hat to me
I do it all because I'm evil
And I do it all for free
Your tears are all the pay I'll ever need.
~ The protagonist singing his chorus

The unnamed protagonist is the main character and villain of Voltaire's song, When You're Evil.


According to him, he is basically everything that causes pain, fear, and chaos in the world, ranging from a simple fly in someone's soup to the dagger in someone's back. It can be assumed that he is simply a force of evil created to extract chaos in any way, shape or form in this world and do the Devil's bidding-because according to him, he is called to bring chaos upon others any time "...the Devil is too busy, and Death is way too much...".

Throughout the song he admits that he enjoys what he does and that the tears he causes from others are "all the pay" he needs. At the end of the song, he admits that being evil is lonely and that he has no friends because of it. But right away he admits that he is lying and that he still enjoys it.
