Lyrics to "Hell Awaits" song by Slayer: Existing on damnation's edge The priest had never known To witness such a violent show Of power over. The Gates of Hell lie waiting as you see There's no price to pay just follow me I can take your lost soul from the grave Jesus knows your soul can not be saved. The Reaper guard's the darkened Gates That Satan calls his home Demons feed the furnace where The Dead are free to roam. Lonely children of the night There's seven ways to go Each leading to the burning hole The Lucifer controls.
