Haunting the Chapel Lyrics

(4)
Submitted by level Eagles
1. Chemical Warfare (6:01)
Frantic minds are terrified
Life lies in a grave
Silent death rides high above
On the wings of revelation
Multi-death from chemicals
Arrogance has won
Annihilation must be swift
Destroy without destruction

Gods of the throne must be watching from hell
Awaiting the mass genocide
Soldiers defeated by death from a smell
Bodies lie dormant no life
Rising new souls on the land where they fell
Demons not ready to die
Nothing to see where the sleeping souls lie
Chemical warfare

Artificial fucking peace
Line up in a death row
Generals in their slow defeat
Diminish from this hell
Banished from the dying world
The lords of hell await
Dogs of war are helpless prey
To immortality

Gods of the throne must be watching from hell
Awaiting the mass genocide
Soldiers defeated by death from a smell
Bodies lie dormant no life
Rising new souls on the land where they fell
Demons not ready to die
Nothing to see where the sleeping souls lie
Chemical warfare

Liquidate
The torture kills the troops that try to fight
Terminate
Human pesticide bring days of doom
Mist falls
The deadly gas that brings them to their knees
Sacrifice
Steal the soul and send his corpse to hell

Mummified regions lying in dust
Fall victim to this game
Petrified corpses bathing in rust
Taken without being blamed
Falsified spirits farther they fall
Soon they will join us in hell
See the sky burning the gates are ablaze
Satan waits eager to merge
2. Captor of Sin (3:30)
Harlots of hell spread your wings
As I penetrate your soul
Feel the fire shoot through your body
As I slip into your throne
Cast aside, do as you will
I care not how you plead
Satan's child now stalks the earth
Born from my demon seed

Hot wings of hell
Burns in my wake
Death is what you pray
Behold Captor of Sin

Infernal slaves of manipulation
Captive of my vice
Abandon God the helpless one
To relieve you of your plight
Subversive action will not help
It will strenghten me
I see decline your every move
Death your final plea

Hot wings of hell
Burns in my wake
Death is what you pray
Behold Captor of Sin

Your skin turns to leather
I ignite your timid blood
You feel my lethal touch
As I grasp your weary soul
I'll take you down into the fire
3. Haunting the Chapel (3:56)
The holy cross, symbol of lies
Intimidate the lives of Christian born
Speak of death, the words of hate
Anticipation grows amongst the dead
Hell has seen the priests attempt
To bring forth their lord of the cross
Strike of twelve, raise the dead
The chapel comes under attack

The ghosts of sin torment the priests
Their altar will soon be destroyed
Heaven's palace turning black
The church now belongs to the dead
Blackened magic infest with lust
Lucifer rules supreme
The crystal ball shows unknown fate
The last thing that's heard is the screams

Ghosts from hell invade this feeble shrine
Heaven's holy house will fall in time
Satan's morbid soldiers chant in lust
Destruction of the church we'll burn the cross

Attacking angels as they pray to God
Tormented preachers hail the twisted cross
Haunting the chapel hell's demons prevail
Death has come, the House of God has failed
4. Aggressive Perfector (3:28)
Follow me, I'll lead the way; your fear will soon overtake
Hide your infinite tears inside, it seeks your smallest break
Screaming as if nothing helps, you press on to survive
Playing out the fantasies of a force that keeps you alive

CHORUS:
He'll have you down on your knees
You play his fatal game
He'll satisfy your every need
You'll never be the same

Take my hand, I'll show you how; you've just one life to live
The road you're on goes straight to hell; your life is yours to give
His fantasies of all of you are much too great to see
This world your living is so unreal, perfected just for me

CHORUS x2:
He'll have you down on your knees
You play his fatal game
He'll satisfy your every need
You'll never be the same
