MEGADETH


Looking Down The Cross Lyrics

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 preists 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 besides the thieves
Kill the king of the world to be

And now to you, this will come
A putrifying pestolence
More noxious than the serpents breath
Malevolently destined
More corrupt than the malice of choronzon
More disease than 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 hundredfolds
Swinging the judgement 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?
Your weeping all alone!

Looking down the cross
(speak no evil)
I'm looking down the cross
(speak no evil)
