The seas have parted
The ending's started
The sky has turned to black
A killing spree through eternity
The devil stabs you in the back

It's midnight now, you must escape somehow
Torture is his leisure
Don't try to hide, he'll make you subside
As he exchanges pain for pleasure

Pain for pleasure
He's the hunter you're the game
Pain for pleasure
And Satan is his name, look out

    HAHAH you punk kids are so cute.. the only "heavy" bands you know of are Metallica and Iron Maiden, and when you want to say something is heavy you compare to either Metallica or Iron Maiden...

    Anyway, this is a great song, wish it was longer. Sum 41 is the only "soft" band I listen to. Their lyrics are so much deeper and better than fuckin Green Hay or Blink 666 or whatever they're called.. fuckin posers

    I'm so sick of hearing u ppl compare Sum 41 songs to metalica

    the similarities are minimal and as Dadautta says, do u even no other metal bands?

    ok you all stupid morons sum 41 is not paroding metal bands they are tributing them they are influenced by metal bands and they are showing it its not a joke song and they are not trying to be hardcore. i like sum 41 and i am a true metal fan but i like real metal not shit like slipknot that go around screaming shit wearing little masks like its fuckin halloweeen or somethin. this song has the style of classic heavy metal like iron maiden id doesn't sound like metallica but they also like metallica cuz they cover master of puppets at their shows they also cover the trooper from iron maiden.

    Slipknot is fucking retarded, even calling it fake metal would be an insult to real metal bands. There's this one kid in my class who thinks he's so hardcore while he listens to slipknot and MCR. And yeah, when I first listened to this I did think it sounded a bit like Metallica but I do listen to other metal bands. (Megadeth, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, some Dio, and if Alice Cooper could be considered metal then that too.)
