UNHOLY

[Random Guitar Noise]
[Rhythm Fig. 1]

[Rhythm Fig. 1]
[Rhythm Fig. 1 w/end.1] then [Rhythm Fig. 1a]
I was there through the ages
Chained snakes to their cages
I have seen you eat your own
I'm the cycle of pain
Of a thousand year old reign

[Rhythm Fig. 1]
[Rhythm Fig. 1 w/end.1] then [Rhythm Fig. 1b]
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

[Rhythm Fig. 2 w/end.1]
Unholy
Oh, I was created by man, you know I'm....
Unholy
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

[Rhythm Fig. 1]        w/[Riff. 1]
[Rhythm Fig. 1 w/end.1] then [Rhythm Fig. 1a]
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

[Rhythm Fig. 1]
[Rhythm Fig. 1 w/end.1] then [Rhythm Fig. 1c]
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

[Rhythm Fig. 2 w/end.2]
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
Unholy - Unholy!

[Rhythm Fig. 3] w/[Solo 1] then [Solo 2 w/Solo 2a] then [Solo 3]


[Rhythm Fig. 1] w/[Riff. 2]
[Rhythm Fig. 1 w/end.1] then [Rhythm Fig. 1b] w/[Riff. 3
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

[Rhythm Fig. 4] w/[Riff. 4] then w/[Riff. 5]
Unholy, Unholy, Unholy - Unholy!!
