"Serenity In Murder" as written by Tomas Enrique Araya, Jeffery John Hanneman and Kerry King....
Let me take you down without a sound
Dead before you hit the ground
Blood washes my hand can't understand
Sterilizing my pain

Washed away with crimson tide
By my hand I keep testing time
Quench the fire that drives my soul
Soothing me as death takes hold

Peaceful and serene slowly bleeding
Eyes once bright are now fading
Pallid ashen face against my skin
Staring blindly at some distant place

Washed away by crimson tide
By my hand I keep testing time
Straight flesh lace adorns your neck
Spilling your blood all over my flesh

Quench the fire that drives my soul
Soothing me as death takes hold
Divine godsend enveloping me
Spiritual ecstasy sets me free

    General CommentThis is a qoute from Tom Araya (I think, atleast it was somebody from Slayer.) that I found on The Abyss.
    "'Serenity In Murder' is really about the pleasure it would give me to have someone die in my arms. It's based on the fact that when someone dies they have a serene look on their face even in a time of horror, even if they have a violent death - more so during a violent death."
