Welcome to the land Where masters become slaves Where shovels speak in tongues And souls are often sold Welcome to the part where your curse will unfold Eternally devoured by worms made of mould Ashes to dust, Grinding your bones in dismay Ashes to dust, Gravedigger heading your way As the tombstone descends Your life comes to end Ashes to dust, Grinding your bones in dismay Ashes to dust, Gravedigger heading your way Welcome to a place Where the sun is always cold Where ravens smile as they fly by Blind rats in robes, that prays for meat Cursed is thy name, of whom they speak Ashes to dust, Grinding your bones in dismay Ashes to dust, Gravedigger heading your way Ashes to dust, Grinding your bones in dismay Ashes to dust, Gravedigger heading your way
