An unforeseen future nestled somewhere in time
Unsuspecting victims no warnings, no signs
Judgment day the second coming arrives
Before you see the light you must die

Forgotten children, conform a new faith,
Avidity and lust controlled by hate
[The] Never ending search for your shattered sanity
Souls of Damnation in their own reality

Chaos rampant
An age of distrust
Confrontations
Impulsive habitat

Bastard sons beget your cunting daughters
Promiscuous mothers with your incestuous fathers
Engreat souls condemned for [all] eternity
Sustained by immoral observance a domineering deity

Chaos rampant
An age of distrust
Confrontations
Impulsive sabbath

On and on, south of heaven [x 4]

The root of all evil is the heart of a black soul
A force that has lived all eternity
A never ending search for a truth never told
The loss of all hope and your dignity

Chaos rampant
An age of distrust
Confrontations
Impulsive habitat

On and on, south of heaven [x 4]

    General CommentI've heard this song... it ends at the first solo. And it plays the drumming intro to Raining Blood. I don't know, there could be more than one version of this song!
