Listen, I'm a corpse, I'm a corpse
I'm a corpse without soul
Satan, he's taken, he's taken
He's taken his toll
And he took it out on me

I, I'm trapped, I'm trapped
I'm trapped in his spell
Tonight, I'm going, I'm going
I'm going to Hell, inside his spell

I was walking down among the graves
I heard a cry, my shadow is gone
Emptiness in my body, I felt so alone
Small black wings on my naked back
Now guess what I saw on one of the stones
I saw my soul, in a magical haze
It was all dressed up as a corpse in a wedding dress
Small black wings on my naked back
Now hear my prayer, beggin' for mercy
I'm living to die

Satan has taken his toll.

    The vocal structure of this song is fucking horrible, but it is made up for a million times over by the pure awesomeness of the guitar. Seems to be about a reanimated corpse.

    Metallica covered this as part of their Mercyful Fate medley on the Garage Inc. album.

    I love all the songs off the Ep. This is my favorite, love the vocal structure and I don't care if Thrash Metal Rulez says it's awful, that's what made me love this song
