Silence screams before you see the light
Every day
I hear these sounds before I sleep
I hear them every day
Demons ripping apart corpses
Skulls float before my eyes
A pentagram made of swords
Lightening riffs
And thunderous chords

Slayer
Don't go away
Slayer
Please stay

First time I saw them live
Was in a British dive
Second time I saw them live
Was in the Colorado Rocky High
Fourth time, fifth time, eighth time, tenth time, twelfth time, third time
Was in California

March on through the rivers of red
Existing in damnation's edge
Angels fighting aimlessly
Walls close in on me
These words are comforting
They keep me warm when winter stings
Like every night I say my prayers
Most every day I hear my

Slayer
Don't go away
Slayer
Please stay

I wonder if they laugh, I wonder if they cry
I wonder if their circuits are crossed so they laugh when babies die
And they cry when babies are born
Into a world of pain and scorn
Trapped in purgatory
A lifeless object alive

I wonder what they do on Christmas day
I wonder what they think is the meaning of pain
I wonder if they ever feel scared or sad
Or if it's always Satan's horns and being mad
I wonder if the ones who have kids are good Dads
Either way honestly it makes me feel real glad
I listen to them in a castle with my Valentine
In an unforeseen future nestled somewhere in time

Slayer
Don't go away
Slayer
Please stay
