"Cemetery Gates (Pantera cover)" as written by Paul Andrew Waggoner, Thomas Giles Jr Rogers, Cartland Blake Richardson, Robert Dustin Waring and Daniel Lanford Briggs....
Reverend, reverend
Is this some conspiracy?
Crucified for no sins
An image beneath me
What's within our plans for life?
It all seems so unreal
I'm a man cut in half in this world
Left in my misery

The reverend he turned to me
Without a tear in his eyes
It's nothing new for him to see
I didn't ask him why
I will remember
The love our souls had
Sworn to make
Now I watch the falling rain
All my mind can see
Now is your (face)

Well I guess
You took my youth
I gave it all away
Like the birth of a
New-found joy
This love would end in rage
And when she died
I couldn't cry
The pride within my soul
You left me incomplete
All alone as the
Memories now unfold.

Believe the word
I will unlock my door
And pass the
Cemetery Gates

Sometimes when I'm alone
I wonder aloud
If you're watching over me
Some place far abound
I must reverse my life
I can't live in the past
Then set my soul free
Belong to me at last
Through all those
Complex years
I thought I was alone
I didn't care to look around
And make this world my own
And when she died
I should've cried and spared myself some pain...
Left me incomplete
All alone as the memories still remain

The way we were
The chance to save my soul
And my concern is now in vain
Believe the word
I will unlock my door
And pass the Cemetery Gates

    General CommentProbably the best Cemetery Gates cover I've heard. Maybe the best Pantera cover I've heard as well.

    General Commentprob the closest things to dimes pinch harmonics i've ever heard in a pantera cover...very good cover im not complaining or saying is not good at all but i would have liked to see some of the growls over the heavy parts, just a new twist on the song.
