Now, before they take me and my blessed life
Now, you'll know why death was summoned here tonight
I'll recall my perils they'll kill me in pride
No, I can't run away there's no place to hide

Though too much to live for I owe enough to die
Ask not for salvation my death shall mean their lives
Hatred and guilt the alter they've built high priests of sin
Destiny fate the wicked ones gate beckoning you in

Down the walkways through the blood stained town
Looking down the cross bleeding from the crown
Led to stay to die beside the thieves
Kill the king of the world to be

And now to you this will come a purifying pestilence
More noxious then the serpent's breath malevolently destined
More corrupt then the malice of Choronzon
More disease then the wind of the moonlight sun

Putrefaction you have caused no need for confession
Now you wish you had a god to stop your demolition
Crushing the bones of the hundred folds
Swinging the judgment hammer

Man, woman, child no one is safe
The heads of the dead are the banner
And this was all you got so don these broken wings
Sands of time run out bells of hades ring

Is this a nightmare to unhallow thy name?
Smell of brimstone dancing in the flames
No help now as you fulfill his task
Chief of evil has got you by the ass

Set free to sit upon the throne
Just a dream you're weeping all alone

Looking down the cross, speak no evil
Looking down the cross, speak no evil
Looking down the cross, speak no evil
Looking down the cross, speak no evil
