Exodus - Beyond The Pale Lyrics

Sinners heart can't think or feel
The sharp sting of slicing steel
Punish, kill, repeat
The death caress, so bittersweet
I live outside the rule of law
My one decree is shock and awe
Black sheep of my kind
Progeny of hate refined

Suffering spreads like the plague
Reasons why, still oh so vague
The siren song of slaughter summons me
To inner demons I succumb
I know not that which I've become
Exhibit A in man's atrocity

Take the gun, take the knife
Take the pain, then take the life
My taste for homicide
Is rising up and amplified
Bloody deeds, my only friend
With me til the bitter end
Together we are one
And our work has just begun


Plea for mercy
To no avail
Killers of my kind live
Beyond the pale
In this world of mine
They say I don't belong
Something that feels so right
Could never be so wrong
Plea for clemency
You're wasting time
My routine
Is the scene of the crime
I make the Devil laugh
And Angels wail
Forever I will reside
Beyond the pale

Heartless bastard cold as ice
Victim of my own device
The strong prey on the weak
Dead men, they never speak
All part of man's condition
On this path to our perdition
We kill along the way
Death never takes a holiday

Exodus Beyond The Pale Comments
  1. Bluexhox

    That closing solo...MY GOD!!

  2. Jeff Gough

    Gary Holt is as brilliant as ever

  3. Fighter 2019

    Those albums I mean both Exhibits are the peak of late Exodus

  4. Ramon Villafarra

    I saw them in a club in NOLA. Size of your living room. Gary fucking Holt tearing your face off in your living room. So fuck off. Hahaha

  5. SlaYeR0sD2x DSBR

    MotherFucker Song, this is EXODUS

  6. Master Betty

    Gary just about pulled that tremelo right off the guitar

  7. richard martino

    they should have kept rob dukes a and b. are the best b no doubt

  8. Den Sleske Mand


  9. Thomas Anderson

    Beg for mercy to no avail

  10. james poper


  11. Claudio Softez

    Incomparably better than any other AMERICAN THRASH band. Even Slayer is so poor comparing to EXODUS. Not mention about very mediocre Megadeth , Metallica.
    EXODUS and Kreator are the GREATEST THRASH bands in the world

    Gore4ever FulciLives

    Claudio Softez all the other major thrash bands, they simply pale in comparison. These albums with Rob Dukes are ridiculously heavy and more explosive and all the rest, Testament is the only one who still retains this heavy aggressive Style. These albums just sounds so much more Fierce and powerful than anything from Metallica or Slayer or Anthrax or any of the other major thrash bands

    Arin Chendwankar

    Megadeth may not be a all time thrash metal band, but you can't call them mediocre they might be the most technical thrash metal band. It's a shame that people can only appreciate Exodus by dissing other bands


    This should have been Slayer's natural evolution.

    Aris Koumbanakis

    Needless hate dude. Just needless hateful namedropping. I'm a fan of all these bands and they're all just amazing. Don't compare them. It's not 1985

  12. kuriakos Mamos

    Take the gun, take the knife
    Take the pain, then take the life

  13. Francis Duffy

    Now this is what you call metal my friends Fucking awesome

  14. hawk6111

    damn. that guitar tone is sick. lee and Gary nailed the guitar tone here. so much brutal

  15. The Titaknight

    This song has been My favorite since the first time i heard it! Everything in it is just perfect! I Love these longer songs Their just so freaking more epic than the shorter ones

  16. Lawrence Lepes

    Is it me, or does Exodus sound like a different band with Rob Dukes? AWESOME SONG!

    Jelmer van der Zaag

    I know right, so much more aggressive and diverse

    Claudio Softez

    1000 times better with Rob Dukes.

    Gore4ever FulciLives

    Claudio Softez Exhibit A and B are the absolute greatest and most intense thrash metal albums of all time


    Heavier and tighter. I got hooked with Tempo of the damned. Then I heard the Rob Dukes albums and was blown away.
    The ol stuff sound to me as raw and unpolished like ole Testament stuff, a bit boring, a few good riffs here and there. No wonder Mtallica, Megadeth and Slayer were the shit back then. They had the best music and the best sound. Overkill, Testament, Exodus - they all matured through the years to finally become the trash kings they are now, while Metallica, Megadth and Slayer just burned or ran out.

    Daniel Carneiro

    Yes it does, specially after Lee joined too! There's a lot of that Heathen vibe in the songs! Really awesome.

  17. criss bang

    Bang your head..!! 🎸🎶

  18. Intandem DJ

    I hear changing of the guard in the first 40 seconds or so

  19. channel surfer

  20. Alex Ferus

  28. Zonex123


  29. KohlfromSD

    With over 20 member changes and 30 years of Thrashing, EXODUS remains heavy and kickass! Respect to Gary Holt.

  30. B100DWRATH666

    And who cares, he is just a musician who sings shit we do not like, so what? Yo, they wanted the the guy from Amon to sign sign a fucking petition or some shit against this guy. Yo, it's fucking stupid. Half these guys would wear a dress and sing love ballads with him if they could get paid like him. Please, give us a Fking break with this shit.
