He saw the world dim with the glow of the vertical sun
His skin crept cold knowing that this was the hours of dying
Misguided mortals, you'll burn with me
Spirit of man cannot be freed

(When death calls)
This is the hours of dying
(When death calls)
The spirit of man can be freed

(When death calls)
Oh, there's no tomorrow
(When death calls)
Oh, just an evil shadow, oh

Tell me not, fear of the flames means that heaven is closer
For I believe, Satan lives in the souls of the dying
Misguided mortals, you'll burn with me
Spirit of man cannot be freed

(When death calls)
Oh, heaven is closer
(When death calls)
Feel the heat of the flames
From the souls of the dying

(When death calls)
Here it comes, here it comes, here it comes
(When death calls)
You're gonna burn

Don't look in those sunken eyes
Don't look and you'll stay alive
Don't laugh in the face of death
Or your tongue will blister

Can't die until Satan says, you die
And Satan takes your soul
In the face of death or your tongue will blister

Don't look in those sunken eyes
Don't look and you'll stay alive
Don't laugh in the face of death
Or your tongue will blister

Can't die until Satan says, you die
The Devil takes your soul
With all his wrath he calls The Reaper

(When death calls)
This is the hours of dying
(When death calls)
The spirit of man can't be freed

(When death calls)
Oh, there's no tomorrow
(When death calls)
Just an evil, evil shadow

(When death calls)
Feel the heat of the flames
From the souls of the dying
(When death calls)
You're gonna burn

(When death calls)
Heaven is closer
(When death calls)
I can feel it, it's gonna take you down

(When death calls)
Can you hear me calling you
(When death calls)
Calling, calling
