Mean and infectious
The evil prophets rise
Dance of the macabre
As witches streak the sky

Decadent worship of
Black magic and sorcery
In the womb of the Devils dungeon
Trapped without a plea

See thing in agony
Necrosis is the fate
Pins sticking through the skin
The venom now sedates

Locked in a pillory
Nowhere to be found
Screaming for your life
But no one hears a sound

Help me

Prepare the patients scalp
To peel away
Metal caps for his ears
He'll hear not what we say

Solid steel visor
Riveted cross his eyes
Iron staples close his jaws
So no one hears his cries

The skull beneath the skin
The skull beneath the skin

Now you're drawn and quartered
Your bones will make the X
Symbol stands for poison
And it's chained to your head

And as we fold your arms
To make the holy cross
We cross the crucifix
Religion has been lost

The skull beneath the skin
The skull beneath the skin

The skull beneath the skin

Songwriters
MUSTAINE, DAVE
