"Skeleton Christ" as written by Tomas Enrique Araya, Kerry King, Jeffery John Hanneman and Dave Lombardo....
Unbound God's creation
Has grown into the sinner
Abandoned innocence
Impenitent transgressor
Escape mortality
They say your life can change
If you take God's hand
Embrace rebirth
Your cleansing's so divine
To be reborn in God's eyes

You'll never touch God's hand
You'll never taste God's breath
Because you'll never see the second coming
Life's too short to be focused on insanity
I've seen the ways of God
I'll take the devil any day
Hail Satan

Your faith has atrophied
And rots in hell's asylum
Despondence tears you down
A free-falling social strain
Escape atrocity
They say your life can change
If you take God's hand
Embrace rebirth
Your cleansing's so divine
To be reborn to God's lies

You'll never touch God's hand
You'll never taste God's breath
Because you'll never see the second coming
It's all a fuckin' mockery
No grasp upon reality
It's mind control for
Compulsory religion and the Skeleton Christ

You'll never touch God's hand
You'll never taste God's breath
Because you'll never see the second coming
I laugh at the abortion known as Christianity
I've seen the ways of God
I'll take the devil any day
Hail Satan

You'll never touch God's hand
You'll never taste God's breath
Because you'll never see the second coming
It's all a fuckin' mockery
No grasp upon reality
It's mind control for
Compulsory religion and the Skeleton Christ

    General CommentFunfact about Tom Araya: He's a Catholic. Think about that next time you listen to him singing stuff like 'Hail Satan'.

    General CommentTom Araya was raised catholic.
    Massacre got this right, Jesus is the song of god, jesus is a skeloton rotting somewhere in the midde east, and the whole religion thing is just a scam to control people.

    General CommentThe band looks at religion, they don't believe in Satan any less than god. "ITS ALL A FUCKING MOCKERY" all religions are in Slayers eyes' but they seem to really hate Christianity...(Well King does anyway) That guy that really said HAIL SATAN is just as pathetic as these other religious fucks!

    General CommentPropably Christ Illusion is one of the worst slayer albums. If someone says something like people does in commments to this song, that means they hate something without knowing anything about it. It's like you need to hate something and you chose religion. As michael jackso would say it's ignorant. You will say that you raed the bible (or shorter versions for dummies) but there are a lot of ideas created thanks to it. there are alot of good stuff in relgion but you se only holy wars and other things you need to see to hate it. Kerry King writes those songs to get antireligious fans. I raed the interview in which he was so proud that "slayer has so cool and brutal lyrics". The last album (world painted blood)is way better for me.The two older albums are just attempt to show they are still brutal and anti everything.
