old lyrics – machine head

“old”

i am the man that defends all things profane
6000 years is the time that i shall reign
and with a grin drank the blood of holy swine
impurity made the blood turn into wine

[chorus:]
old man, dead hand
if only their insanity
the lie feeds off their greed
jesus wept

i am the pain that feeds off your weakness
a sickening born of hate, not of the blessed
and with the time i will crush all things you prey
destroying all from the known to the arcane

[chorus]

burn my eyes and try to blind me
bury me so they won’t find me
try to suck my power empty
got no crown of th*rns on me

so burn my eyes and try to blind me
bury me so they won’t find
try to suck my power dry
you got no crown of th*rns on me

[chorus]
