  • 3 The Skull Beneath the Skin
  • Solo-Mustaine
    Mean and infectious
    The evil Prophets rise
    Dance of the Macabre
    As witches Streak the sky
    Decadent worship of
    Black Magic sorcery
    In the womb of the Devil's 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 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
