Mass depression, silent screams out there
Damn it, into darkness
Something that'll never rise
In this something that the world that follows rhyme
Impetrate, simplest wine
Deep within my spine

Silent Scream!
Tearing it up in time
It'll die sucking the part where it'll die

Another time
Evil hard knock game
Mistaken, something that's chewing you down
Of dangers of light
Bury tainted guy
Suffers rhyme
Hard is something that is destroyed

Silent Scream!
The worst of the bitterest sound
Evil does the light turn into stow

Free of dead
Humanity mayday
To the end show
Preserved the nastiest prey
Wake me up, and down
Infinity to prey
Selection to the later
It brought us the end of the day

Mass depression, silent screams out there
Damn it, into darkness
Something that'll never rise

We're all gonna die!
Silent scream!
It's the end of light!

    General CommentThis cover really kicks ass. Children of Bodom made this cover shound nearly like their own song, and I was mistaken into thinking it too. I have heard both Silent Screams, and before I looked it up on the internet, I didnt realise that it was a Slayer Cover. CoB did a fantastic job with this cover. Its comparable to Johnny Cash's cover of NIN's "Hurt" where the cover song sounds like a whole new song.
