"Long Way Back From Hell" as written by and Danzig....
Yeah
Sold into slavery down in New Orleans
Goddess
Of the bayou light
Black dog's head on the killing bed
Severed
And left to bleed
There on fire
In the corner of the world
There in misery
There on fire
In the corner of the world
Left for God to see

Do you want to take a life
Do you want to cross that line
'Cause it's a long way back from Hell
And you don't want to go with me

Yeah, poison father of the human race
God
Of the tainted blood
Malevolence
Sneaking up the spine of the world
Ready for the bastard son
There on fire
In the veins of man
There in misery
There on fire
In the veins of man
Left for God to see

Do you want to take a life
Do you want to cross that line
'Cause it's a long way back from Hell
And you don't want to go with me

Do you want to take a life
Do you want to take a life, yea
Do you want to cross that line, oh
Do you want to cross that line
want to cross that line

Oh
Sold into slavery down in New Orleans
Goddess
Of the bayou light
Black dog's head on the killing bed
Severed
And left to bleed
There on fire
In the corner of the world
There in misery
Lucifer's face
In the mirror when you look
Left for God to see

Do you want to take a life
Do you want to cross that line
'Cause it's a long way back from Hell
And you don't want to go with me

And it's a long way back from Hell
And you don't want to go

    General CommentI always thought it was about a slave using a voodoo curse against his master.With Danzig it could be about the Devil too.Who knows?.

    General CommentThis song has no hidden meaning. The lyrics explain themself. "Do you want to take a life, Do you want to cross that line 'Cause its along way back from hell, You dont want to go with me.

    Its about the choice to comment man's most unnatural act. Slaying thy fellow man. I'll not tell of why Glenn's music means so much to me. I know slowly a shadow creeps into you. A thing that has so much wieght in emptiness, you feel your soul only at a distance. to be able to feel it within you again, the emotional equivalant of hell to you and those who love you must be taken on. GOOD LUCK, SAFE JOURNY TO THOSE WHO ARE LOST OR "ON A LONG WAY BACK FROM HELL"( you guys know what this song means)
