Name: The Poor Man Sells His Soul
1261 rate-up

roaming through the night
the graveyard to his right
a vulture sitting on his shoulder

he`s promising a cure
exploitation of the poor
diseases he devours, he claims

deception of the weak
the promises he makes
are empty and deceit, he lies

he`s pointing at the one
who`s stumbling right in front
the corpsegate`s solid steel is breaking open

 come in and you will see
what lies beyond the churchgate
he feels the curiosity
don`t disappoint the summoner

 the ancient tomb hosts the lost and the doomed
they rise from their graves as soon as sun fades
decoyed they were whilst lost in despair
their mortal sins meant nothing to him

a weary soul might be pleased by a vaul
the virus will spread, they will not regret
he rips them apart, takes possession of hearts
and feasts

pleasure and distress
when absence is a bless
all contrasts seem to disappear

the homeless seek a home
the guilty will condone
the poor man sells his soul to him

they desire all the same
so whose the one to blame
it is all the same to him

the price that they will pay
is the headstone of his prey
so the corpsegate`s solid steel is breaking open again

the ancient tomb hosts the lost and the doomed
they rise from their graves as soon as sun fades
decoyed they were whilst lost in despair
their mortal sins meant nothing to him

a weary soul might be pleased by a vaul
the virus will spread, they will not regret
he rips them apart, takes possession of hearts
and feasts

smoke`s lifting from the ground
the church bell rings, it`s getting close to midnight
listen, and you`ll hear
silent screams soulless, submissive

the ancient tomb hosts the lost and the doomed
they rise from their graves as soon as sun fades
decoyed they were whilst lost in despair
their mortal sins meant nothing to him

a weary soul might be pleased by a vaul
the virus will spread, they will not regret
he rips them apart, takes possession of hearts
and feasts
