Dead Skin Mask Lyrics

(Jeff Hanneman/Tom Araya)
How I've waited for you to come
I've been here all alone
And now that you've arrived
Please stay a while
And I promise I won't keep you long
I'll keep you forever

Graze the skin with my finger...

    This song is about Ed Gein, a serial killer in the 1950's of which both the movies "Psycho" and "Texas Chainsaw Masacre" were loosely based. In reality he only killed two or three people but he was nototious for digging up freshly buried corpses from his local cemetary and making ornaments and "dead skin masks" from their flesh and bones.

    An evil and horrible murderer but and fucking awesome song, lyrics written by Tom Araya.
