Slayer – Raining Blood lyrics

Trapped in purgatory
A lifeless object, alive
Awaiting reprisal
Death will be their acquisition

The sky is turning red
Return to power draws near
Fall into me, the skys crimson tears
Abolish the rules made of stone

Pierced from below, souls of my treacherous past
Betrayed by many, now ornaments dripping above

Awaiting the hour of reprisal
Your time slips away

Raining blood
From a lacerated sky
Bleeding it's horror
Creating my structure
Now I shall reign in blood!

    I don't agree on you metallicamike, & kamal, I guess you just go back to your linkin park, you don't know metal. Mike I just want to tell you that, dave lombardo is the godfather of doublebass, king & hanneman are the twisted genius in guitar, & together with the man tom on bass & vocals, together, this band is the king of thrash metal, metallica doesn't belong there anymore unlike before. But metallica is one of the best heavy metal band. Peace.
