Looking Down the Cross Lyrics by Megadeth

Title:Looking Down the Cross
Now before they take me and my blessed life
Now you’ll know why death was summoned here tonight
I’ll recall my perils they’ll kill me in pride
No, I can’t run away there’s no place to hide
Though too much to live for I owe enough to die
Ask not for salvation my death shall mean their lives
Hatred and guilt the alter they’ve built, high priests of sin
Destiny, fate the wicked ones gate beckoning you in
Down the walkways through the blood stained town
Looking down the cross bleeding from the crown
Led to slay, to die besides the thieves
Kill the king of the world to be
And now to you, this will come a putrefying pestilence
More noxious than the serpent’s breath malevolently destined
More corrupt than the malice of Choronzon
More disease than the wind of the moonlight sun
Putrefaction you have caused no need for confession
Now you wish you had a God to stop your demolition
Crushing the bones of the hundredfolds swinging the judgment hammer
Man, woman, child no-one is safe the heads of the dead are the banner
And this was all you got so don these broken wings
Sands of time run out, bells of Hades ring
Is this a nightmare to un-hallow thy name
Smell of brimstone dancing in the flames
No help now as you fulfill his task
Chief of evil has got you by the ass
Set free to sit upon the throne
Just a dream, you’re weeping all alone
Looking down the cross, speak no evil
I’m looking down the cross, speak no evil
