Slash – The Unholy lyrics

Evil shadows they are falling
And the misty-eyed are calling
To a God so far
People; troubled times are coming
Still you wonder why I’m running
I will take no part

Evil
(I know it was you this time; I know it was you this time; I’ve seen it with my own two eyes; you lie; you lie)


Unholy so vile
How can you justify a lie?
One more sacred alibi
Concealing your crimes
Until the end of time
Oh, why?
It’s you that should be crucified

Echoes of your true intentions
Well I guess you failed to mention
What was in your heart
Now I say it all so clearly
What you did to them has nearly
Torn us all apart

Evil
(I know it was you this time; I know it was you this time; took them like a sacrifice; you lie; you lie)

[Chorus:]

(Vocalizations)
You say on your knees that you don’t believe now
Don’t question a thing at all
Just receive what you’re meant to see
Now fall
On your knees

Evil shadows they are falling
And the misty-eyed are calling
You will break their heart

[Chorus:]

The broken how they cry
They only gave you heart and mind
How can you justify?
They loved you
Now father don’t deny
You took them like a sacrifice
We finally know the truth about you
Oh, yeah

(Solo)

You’re unholy
So vile
How can you justify?
Oh my, how they loved you
Oh, yeah
Concealing your crimes
But now they’ll see this time
The blind will deny you
