"Screaming From The Sky" as written by Tomas Enrique Araya, Jeffery John Hanneman and Kerry King....
I stalk close in from above
Silent wings will test your faith
Death will never hear me pass
Launch attack you're too late
I hear flak inside my head
Deafening thunder cities burn
Carpet-bombing laid to waste
Throwned inside a death mask

Holy cross embedded in your tomb
Casualties are buried through your mind
Certain death is screaming from the sky

I live to destroy below
Hunted victims are unseen
Flying wrath a fortress hell
War machine to kill all
I leave carnage in my wake
Choking bleeding for your life
Faceless prey has been erased
Silence reigns you're dead now

Holy cross embedded in your tomb
Casualties are buried through your mind
Certain death is screaming from the sky

Listen to the rhythm of a dead man walking
Silent is the heartbeat of the predator stalking
Hear the sound of air feel the warmth touch your neck
Reality is not fair no time to second guess
Hear the distant ringing of the blade as it cuts through your neck
Silent is the cry lying on your mattress of blood
An easy mark for a veteran of execution
I walk step by step with death
Where all bludgeoned bodies lie
You will see my face of rage
Cut your heart out of your chest
Leave impaled the consummation of mankind

    General CommentIm just guessing but judging by the typical slayer stuff it might be a ww2 reference on the london air raids, but its probably just air shit in general like fiend angel said
