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

Solo - Mustaine

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 patient's scalp to peel away
Metal cap's 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 you're 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

Solo - Mustaine
