Oh Death by CanisAlbus Oh Death by CanisAlbus
Oh, Death, оh Death, oh Death
Won't you spare me over til another year

But what is this, that I can't see
with ice cold hands taking hold of me

When God is gone and the Devil takes hold
who will have mercy on your soul

Oh, Death, оh Death, oh Death

No wealth, no ruin, no silver, no gold
Nothing satisfies me but your soul

Oh, Death,
Well I am Death, none can excel,
I'll open the door to heaven or hell.

Oh, Death, оh Death,
my name is Death and the end is here.

Jen Titus - Oh Death


Xibalba, the melanistic canine high priest of a Pre-Columbian civilization that worships death and underworld. His people consider him as the reincarnated embodiment of all the previous high priests and his soul is believed to contain the spirits of the deceased tribe members, justifying him to be the authority to decide whether one deserves to live or die. In ritual ceremonies he often wears a mask carved to a shape of grinning skull.
