Possessed – Graven Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Six, six, six on the head and the wrist
The bloodied, battered crucifix
Two coins to cross the river Styx
On bended knees and Satan’s fist

[Pre-Chorus 1]
Lucidity, tranquility
My lust is forged of centuries
My wars evolve, my slaves defy
And beg for life until they die
In fire, in hell, in death you’re mine
The hourglass, the clock unwinds
The time is short to do your best
And every word takes one more breath

[Verse 2]
Six, six, six on the head and the hand
Flesh and blood and born of man

[Pre-Chorus 2]
A graven idol upon its cross
Fall to your knees and cry for loss
Endowed with pain, this mastery
Etched in dust and fantasy
An angel born from heaven’s hell
A beast that pounds the bloody nail
Into the void where chaos reigns
Satanic evil, all insane

[Chorus]
The blade that splits my tongue
The serpent’s sacred sun
The fire that burns so cold
The words I speak are old

[Bridge]
All alone now, my heart, it breaks
Dead inside, as I pass through the gates

[Guitar solo 1: Creamer]
[Guitar solo 2: Gonzalez]

[Verse 3]
Six, six, six on the head and the wrist
The bloodied, battered crucifix
Two coins to cross the river Styx
On bended knees and Satan’s fist

[Pre-Chorus 1]
Lucidity tranquility
My lust is forged of centuries
My wars evolve, my slaves defy
And beg for life until they die
In fire, in hell, in death you’re mine
The hourglass, the clock unwinds
The time is short to do your best
And every word takes one more breath

[Chorus]
The blade that splits my tongue
The serpent’s sacred sun
The fire that burns so cold
The words I speak are old
