Transcriber's Notes: Alright, there are too many versions
                     of this song on the Internet only few
                     that are fairly accurate.  My attempt
                     here is to remove the ambiguity and give
                     you a most accurate tab of this awesome
                     song.  E-mail me if you have suggestions,
                     additions, solos, or an even better version

LYRICS
======

Once upon the cross

Fear him, fear him, fear him... Satan

Nazarene in the valley of persuasion
To receive last temptations from Lord Satan
"Take a bite" said the serpent "eat of it"
Without no choice to do so, you cannot resist

Impaled crucifixion
Compassion forgot
Eternal damnation
Once upon a cross

Blasphemy laughs at thee
Jesus you've been deceived
Struggling on the cross
Gagging to breathe
Despite your god, question why
You were retrieved by the angel of light

Kill him, kill him, kill him... Satan

Nazarene screaming on his crucifixion
Prophecy in its final contradiction
When you die is when the lie will be believed
Upon the cross, before the world to see

Once upon the cross
