  • I was there through the ages
    Chained slaves to their cages
    I have seen you eat your own
    I'm the cycle of pain
    Of a thousand year old reign

    I'm suicide and salvation
    The omen to nations
    That you worship on all fours
    I'm the infection and famine
    That's knocking at your door

    That's why you're feeling so
    Unholy
    Oh, I was created by man, you know I'm
    Unholy
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

    I am the incubus,
    I lay the egg in you
    The worm that burrows through your brain
    But you are the beast that calls me by my name

    You send your children to war
    To serve bastards and whores
    So now you know
    You created me on the day that you were born

    Unholy
    I was created by man, yeah I'm the Lord of the Flies, you know I'm
    Unholy
    From the left hand of power comes the father of lies, yeah
    Unholy
    Unholy

    I lay you down to sleep
    Your soul to keep
    Better cross your heart before you die
    And now you know
    Know that you are mine

    That's why you're feeling so
    Unholy
    Unholy
    Unholy
