This is the first tale of death in the world
When Cain struck down Abel, a family broken
Since then mankind's dominated his own kind
To insult and injure there's no such thing
As peace, till death do us part

Till that last (truth be told)
Sin lies at the doorway (truth be told)
Hell's open for business now (truth be told)
The soil cries out for revenge (truth be told)
And death is upon the ground, all around

The battle ain't over, without spoils of war
Just 'cause it is written, does not make it so
When you dance with the devil, wait 'till the song's over
I ask myself how bad do I want you to live
My anger is near

Till that last (truth be told)
Sin lies at the doorway (truth be told)
Hell's open for business now (truth be told)
The soil cries out for revenge (truth be told)
And death is upon the ground
Sin lies at the doorway (truth be told)
Hell's open for business now (truth be told)
The soil cries out for revenge (truth be told)
And death is upon the ground, all around

Tribulation strikes and we're hit hard
Still you just go on your way
Head in the sand, ignoring the rain
Just like the flood in Noah's day, In His day

Can't punish those for ruining the Earth
Its suicide to some degree
Because we are all guilty, guilty as sin
There'll be no peace, never for you and me

Before Al qaeda and Bin Laden
Long before Hitler and Hussein
Ever since the first murder was committed
The verdict's always been the same (been the same) wrong!

A cursed future just repeats the past
There's hell to pay, the stone's been cast
So there'll be no peace (never be peace)
Till the last truth be told, by you and me
