Vortex Lyrics

Internal combustion
Multiple personalities
Terror inside of me
A mask of silent agony

Curse the falling rain
The vortex of pain

As medieval as Merlin
A pact for power was made
Lucifer in transition
It’s time the price was paid

Searching the domain
The vortex of pain

A telestic message
Written in torment
Howl out dirges
Like the horns of Jericho

Distorted faces
Writhing in rage
Walls of purgatory tumble down
Endless death, the jewels of a crown

Solo – Friedman

Music & Lyrics – Mustaine
