"Annihilation by the hands of God" as written by Nathan Jonas Jordison, Glen Benton and Rob Barrett....
The prophets of God have left you solaced indeed
A zombie of Jesus insane with his belief
Is all that you know and all you take as you go
You’re one with the rich and only take from the poor

Nailed to the cross by your hands and your feet
Your washed up religion is now worthless and weak
Tenacious conviction has caught up with your soul
There’s no place for mercy in the myths of your lord

Little lamb of sacrifice, full of Bible hymns
Hiding in the house of God, from his suffering
Pray the son will come and call just to make us dead
Bring upon the end of times…worship if you dare

Wiping out masses just for shits and a grin
Is all an illusion of the spell that you’re in
Religious confliction has impaired your control
In his resurrection, revelations unfold

He is you the sacrifice, in the house of bless
Crucify yourself to death just to get to him
Die…. will you….

Annihilation by the hands of God
Mutilate me….
Annihilation by the hands of God
Unforgiving….
Annihilation by the hands of God
Christ ill willing….
Annihilation by the hands of God
Heaven hates you….

When it’s time, I won’t look back
Heaven’s gates under attack

Satan….
Satan….
Satan….
Satan….

Little lamb of sacrifice, full of Bible hymns
Hiding in the house of God, from his suffering
Pray the son will come and call just to make us dead
Bring upon the end of times…. worship if you dare

Annihilation by the hands of God
Mutilate me….
Annihilation by the hands of God
Unforgiving….
Annihilation by the hands of God
Christ ill willing….
Annihilation by the hands of God
Heaven hates you….

    General CommentBleed for the Devil! It's really great that Roadrunner wasn't afraid to throw in some Death Metal in this compilation! Awesome growls by Glen Benton, the Mastermind of blasphemous Death Metal! Love this song

    General CommentRob Barret! Can't be coincidence that both the songs he plays on are among the best on the album. Agreed that it's great to here some straight-up death metal on the album. Joey Jordison's songwriting really impressed me, I have to say. This was an awesome concept for an album and it turned out great.

    General CommentThis song is good but I don't like Glen Benton vocals, the drums are really sick!!! Expect no less from the best drummer: Mr. Joey Jordison!

    General Commentthis is one of the greatest songs i've heard in a long time. joey jordison (writer and drummer of this song) is one of the best musicians of all times. Glen Benton is an awesome singer and to sing like that for 5 and a half minutes is incredible

    General Commentits kinda hard to believe that this was written by the same person that wrote "in the fire". And kinda hard to belive that it was written by joey jordison because hes not satanist. Hes just anti-christian.

    You don't have to be satanist to write something that sounds satanistic
