Raise The Dead Lyrics

4. Raise The Dead (2:48)
Track rating :  82.5 / 100       Votes :  2       [ ]
Rising from my deadly tomb I've got
maddened eyes with fright
fingers bleeding fast heart beating
the moons my only light
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
If God won't have me, then the Devil must
CHORUS: we will raise the dead
we will raise the dead
we will raise the dead
stop at nothing raise the dead
Gaze across the blackened yard
my mind is filled with dread
so give me all the powers of Hell
and I'll raise the dead
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
The hotter the fire, the greater the lust
CHORUS:
I hear the star of the Necromancer
my blood is black and my heart doth bleed
I am infernal and my mind's in torment
I'll raise the dead make the world unclean

Laughing as my legions rise
control the zombies mind
I hold Hell close to my breast
I'm leaving God behind
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
I'll enter hellfire, I'll break the crust
CHORUS:
