Crypts Of Eternity Lyrics

6. Crypts Of Eternity (6:38)
Track rating :  87.1 / 100      Votes :  7     
[Lyrics Araya/Hanneman/King; Music Hanneman/King]

[Lead Hanneman]

Devious to those unknown
He walks below the land
Alluring victims to their death
Perish to the sand

Master of the blackened arts
Living his decree
Thrives amongst the Seven Gates
Searching for the keys

[Chorus]
I have seen the darkened depths of Hell
Sorcery beyond the witches' spell
Robbed the crypts of Death's eternity
Killed the priest and cursed him endlessly

Chants of evil incantation
Fill the murky night
Free the Devil's knights of Hell
Unleash their growing spite

Directing power forcibly
The fire of Hell is cast
Resurrect from crypts of Death
A demon from the past

[Chorus]

[Lead - Hanneman, King]

Cringe with fear
Violate the unbroken seal of Hell
Death will come searching for
Your mere soul
Still you are eager to seek your fate
All that lie here are remains of Death

Grinding bones, screaming skulls
Broken by the lapse of time
Decay to powder, ashes to dust
Diminishing, disintegrating
Man's soul and mind

[Lead - Hanneman]

Empty space tracks throughout
I make my claim

[Lead - King]

Darkness covers the world
My Kingdom, my Domain
