END LYRICS ====== Once upon the cross Fear him, fear him, fear him... Satan Nazarene in the valley of persuasion To receive last temptations from Lord Satan "Take a bite" said the serpent "eat of it" Without no choice to do so, you cannot resist Impaled crucifixion Compassion forgot Eternal damnation Once upon a cross Blasphemy laughs at thee Jesus you've been deceived Struggling on the cross Gagging to breathe Despite your god, question why You were retrieved by the angel of light Kill him, kill him, kill him... Satan Nazarene screaming on his crucifixion Prophecy in its final contradiction When you die is when the lie will be believed Upon the cross, before the world to see Once upon the cross Check Out Death8699.com or Metaltabs.com for More Transcriptions: http://www.Death8699.com http://www.Metaltabs.com
