"Knight of Long Knives" as written by and Robb Flynn....
You won't see us come
You won't see us come
You won't see us come
You won't see us come

You won't see us come
In the night
With these knives
And these bloodstains on our hands
Paint the walls
Taste the blade
On the night of long knives

You won't see us come
In the night
With these knives
And these bloodstains on our hands
Paint the walls
Taste the blade
On the night of long knives

Midnight we kill

In summer of '69, there came a prophet
His words were used profit off the minds of the weak
He spoke of holes deep within the desert
His followers into the belly of the beast
Don't look into his eyes
Burning with malice past the point of no return
They're piling bodies one by one
Fulfilling all their dreams to come
The prophecy of war that Charles Manson had begun in the hills

Of Hollywood tonight

City of the angels
Sanity deprived
The family fatal
They bring the night of long knives
Deserts and the devil
Rapist of the mind
The family fatal

Pitch black

You won't see us come
In the night
With these knives
And these bloodstains on our hands
Paint the walls
Taste the blade
On the night of long knives
Midnight we kill

The hills were echoing with their laughter
Happily ever after was a faded memory
Rosemary and the baby of Polanski
6 people dead and bloodying
In the hill's of Beverly
They're screaming for their lives
Praying and pleading for lives of babies unborn
The spawn of hell they just begin
The horror of the splitting skin
Ropes are tied around their necks
To breathe their dying breaths
In the hills
Of Hollywood tonight

City of the angels
Sanity deprived
The family fatal
They bring the night of long knives
Deserts and the devil
Rapist of mind
The family fatal
They bring the night of long knives

We have been so wrong
We will fall
No tomorrow

We have been so wrong
We will fall
No tomorrow

We'll fall away tonight

Don't look into his eyes
Buried with knowledge past the point of no return
They're piling bodies one by one
Fulfilling all their dreams to come
The prophecy of war that Charles Manson had begun in the hills

Of Hollywood tonight

City of the angels
Sanity deprived
The family fatal
They bring the night of long knives
Deserts and the devil
Rapist of mind
The family fatal
They bring the night of long knives

City of the angels
Sanity deprived
The family fatal
They bring the night of long knives
Deserts and the devil
Rapist of mind
The family fatal
They bring the night of long knives

You won't see us come
In the night
With these knives
And these bloodstains on our hands
Paint the walls
Taste the blade
On the night of long knives

You won't see us come
In the night
With these knives
And these bloodstains on our hands
Paint the walls
Taste the blade

'Cause you won't see us come
In the night
With these knives
And these bloodstains on our hands
On the night of long knives

    Song MeaningThis song is about the 1969 Manson murders of 26-yr-old actress Sharon Tate and five of her friends in Los Angeles (City of the angels.) Sharon Tate was married to filmmaker Roman Polanski. She was 8 1/2 months pregnant (the baby of Polanski) when the evil drugged-up members of Charles Manson's (In summer of 69, there came a prophet) cult stabbed her and her unborn son sixteen times (They bring the night of long knives.) Her and another woman were tied together by a rope around their necks. The word "PIG" was written on the wall (paint the walls) using Tate's blood. Of course, the murderers were all caught, but they claimed they only committed the heinous crime because they were brainwashed by Charles Manson (rapist of mind) who was arrested soon after. Charles Manson knew all of American was tuned into the trial, so he put on this act that he was the devil himself and everyone in the country was scared to death of him. In reality, he was just a puny, evil coward who convinced his friends to kill for him. The line in the song that reads "Rosemary and the baby of Polanski" refers to the blockbuster movie "Rosemary's Baby" which was written by Polanski.
