The Skull Beneath The Skin Lyrics - Megadeth

Review The Song (1)



[D. Mustaine]

[solo: Mustaine]

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

[solo: Mustaine]

See thing in agony
Necrosis is the fate
Pins sticking through the skin
The venom now sedates
sponsored links
Locked in a pillory
Nowhere to be round
Screaming for your life
But no-one hears a sound
Help me
Prepare the patients scalp
To peel away
Metal caps 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
Now your 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

[solo: Mustaine]

Meaning of the Song | Reviewer: Megadeth Fan 519 | 5/21/13

Pretty awesome song gotta love the riffs that are played in this but the song itself is pretty much how Victim "Vic" Rattlehead is created. I don't know why people say it is related to suicide since the lyrics are quite straight forward.

"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"

Pretty much means the area of where the experiment is taking place.

"See thing in agony
Necrosis is the fate
Pins sticking through the skin
The venom now sedates
Locked in a pillory
Nowhere to be round
Screaming for your life
But no-one hears a sound
Help me"

Is pretty much the "Victim" already captured and they are preparing to experiment on him.

"Prepare the patients scalp
To peel away
Metal caps 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"

They begin the experiment and they create "Vic Rattlehead"

But as for the last part of the song, it seems to be about Positive and negative things about a particular Religion.

But this song is pretty much about how The Victim became Vic Rattlehead and as i said before it is a really good song :D
