The evil Prophets rise
As witches Streak the sky
Black Magic sorcery
Trapped without a plea

Necrosis is the fate
The venom now sedates
Nowhere to be found
But no one hears a sound
Prepare the patients scalp
Metal caps his ears
Solid steel visor
Iron staples close his jaws
So no one hears his cries
Now your drawn and quartered
Symbol stands for poison
And as we fold your arms
We cross the crucifix
The skull beneath the skin
