Track Name: The Jackal
The Jackal
(Music / Lyrics by 555)

Verse 1 - [0:23]
Bastard son of a prostitute
With a vicious twisted passion

Cunning sexual predator
Stalking in the night

Uncontrollable taste for whores
and innocent fragile strays

Raping with a murderous rage
And killing like a fiend

Chorus - [0:37]
Scratching and slashing
Chewing human flesh
Slaughtering victims one by one
The golden dog of death

Verse 2 - [1:06]
Seeking treatment in the asylum
The Jackal goes insane

Scratching walls 'til nails are gone.
Hands turn to claws

Evil presence felt inside
Brooding sickening madness

Only a matter of time until
The beast inside's unleashed

Chorus - [1:21]
Scratching and slashing
Chewing human flesh
Slaughtering victims one by one
The golden dog of death

Canis Aureus

Bridge 1 - [2:01]
Attacking the nurse, a big mistake
He's sentenced to be restrained
Acting out - contorting his limbs
They've locked his head inside a cage

Bridge 2 - [2:28]
Thrown in the darkest cell
Hatred for mankind ensued
Cowering screams - whenever approached
The canine from hell awaits his fate

Solo Ed - [2:43]

End - [2:57]
Flames of hell engulf the asylum
Everyone escapes
Jackal chose to stay inside and
Meet his rightful fate

His curse was stronger than his soul
Spirit bound to walk the earth
Captured by a sickened madman
Again, he's trapped in living hell
