The Unholy

Album: World On Fire (2014)
  • Evil shadows they are falling
    And the misty-eyed are calling
    To a god so far
    People, troubled times are coming
    Still you wonder why I'm running
    I will take no part

    I know it was you this time
    I know it was you this time (evil)
    I've seen it with my own two eyes
    You lie, you lie

    Unholy so vile
    How can you justify a lie?
    One more sacred alibi
    Concealing your crimes
    Until the end of time
    Oh why
    It's you that should be crucified

    Echoes of your true intentions
    Well I guess you failed to mention
    What was in your heart
    Now I say it all so clearly
    What you did to them has nearly
    Torn us all apart

    I know it was you this time
    I know it was you this time (evil)
    Took them like a sacrifice
    You lie, you lie

    Unholy so vile
    How can you justify a lie?
    One more sacred alibi
    Concealing your crimes
    Until the end of time
    Oh why
    It's you that should be crucified

    You say, on your knees that you don't believe now
    Don't question a thing at all
    Just receive what you're meant to see
    Now fall
    On your knees

    Evil shadow they are falling
    And the misty-eyed are calling
    You will break their heart

    Unholy so vile
    How can you justify a lie?
    One more sacred alibi
    Concealing your crimes
    Until the end of time
    Oh why
    It's you that should be crucified

    The broken how they cry
    They only gave you heart and mind
    How can you justify?
    They loved you
    Now father don't deny
    You took them like a sacrifice
    We finally know the truth about you
    Oh yeah

    You're unholy
    So vile
    How can you justify?
    Oh my, how they loved you
    Oh yeah
    Concealing your crimes
    But now they'll see this time
    The blind will deny you Writer/s: MYLES KENNEDY, SAUL HUDSON
