At Dawn They Sleep Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Awakened I have become light now slips away
Manipulate your mind darkness is my slave
Taste the sins of hell the blood that I so crave
The last thing that you see is the hunger in my eyes

Blood sucking creatures of the night
Nocturnal spectra hiding from the light
Cries screaming out every fright
Eagerly awaiting plight

Apparitions from the pits of hell
Death plagues the streets in which they dwell
Demented lust, the secrets they must keep
Addicted to your blood at dawn they sleep

Unveil the hidden coffin lift the lid of terror
Feel the deadly cold freeze you from inside
Perceiving your intentions to slay the phantom form
Raise the stake in malice you cannot plunge it down

Blood sucking creatures of the night
Nocturnal spectra hiding from the light
Cries screaming out every fright
Eagerly awaiting plight

Apparitions from the pits of hell
Death plagues the streets in which they dwell
Demented lust, the secrets they must keep
Addicted to your blood at dawn they sleep

Beware the image unseen stalks your soul your corpses redeem
Eternal damnation you just reward a servant of our Lord by your accord
Admonish of the cruciform impalement immortality's scorned
Rise hold fast your faith to lie dormant is certain death

Kill kill kill kill kill

Driven by the instinct of centuries of horror
Implanted along the brain of the sickening parasite
Linked together by one trait
The hell-filled need to kill kill kill kill kill

Emerging from their hellish tomb taking flight amidst the night
The evening skies are raining death
Swooping down from shadowed skies taking simple human form
Shed their wings to stalk the mortal man

Lock their jaws into your veins Satanic soldiers strike their prey
Leaving corpses waiting for the change
Blood dripping from the jaws of death not enough to satisfy
They must drain your soul of life

JEFF HANNEMAN, KERRY KING, TOM ARAYA
