Creeping Death

Written by Hetfield/Ulrich/Burton/Hammett
Slaves
Hebrews born to serve, to the pharaoh
Heed
To his every word, live in fear
Faith
Of the unknown one, the deliverer
Wait
Something must be done, four hundred years

        So let it be written
        So let it be done
        I'm sent here by the chosen one
        So let it be written
        So let it be done
        To kill the first born pharaoh son
        I'm creeping death

Now
Let my people go, land of Goshen
Go
I will be with thee, bush of fire
Blood
Running red and strong, down the Nile
Plague
Darkness three days long, hail to fire

        So let it be written
        So let it be done
        I'm sent here by the chosen one
        So let it be written
        So let it be done
        To kill the first born pharaoh son
        I'm creeping death

Die by my hand
I creep across the land
Killing first-born man

Die by my hand
I creep across the land
Killing first-born man

I
Rule the midnight air, the destroyer
Born
I shall soon be there, deadly mass
I
Creep the steps and floor, final darkness
Blood
Lamb's blood, painted door, I shall pass

        So let it be written
        So let it be done
        I'm sent here by the chosen one
        So let it be written
        So let it be done
        To kill the first born pharaoh son
        I'm creeping death
