The Graveyard
(Diamond)

Where am I?
What am I doing here?
In this God forsaken graveyard
Yeah...
that's what I'm doing... I remember now
This is my new home
And they will never find me here............


Black Hill Sanitarium
(Diamond/LaRocque)

I have been in here
for way too long
And as I walk the halls at night
I see the other inmates hiding from my eyes

This is for the mentally ill
For those who have lost the will

I have seen the sickness
of all mankind
And as I walk the halls at night
I see the other inmates hiding from my eyes

This is for the mentally ill
For those who have lost the will

Black Hill Sanitarium...
They're driving me crazy
Black Hill Sanitarium...
They're driving me crazy here

Gotta get out of here...
Gotta erase the fear
Gotta get out of here...
No more silent tears
Gotta get out of here...
No more, no more silent tears

Solo: Herb

Black Hill Sanitarium...
They're driving me crazy

Solo: Andy

I am going down,
deep into the black of my mind
I've had enough
Therapy
in little rooms,
I'm lying down
in my cocoon
Nothing here
could end too soon,
I'm lying down
Oh God, I hate those men in white

Oh, those men in white,
sticking needles in my mind
And as I walk the halls at night
I see the other inmates hiding from my eyes
This is for the mentally ill
For those who have lost the will

Black Hill Sanitarium...
They're driving me crazy
Black Hill Sanitarium...
They're driving me crazy here

Gotta get out of here...
Gotta erase the fear
Gotta get out of here...
No more silent tears


Waiting
(Diamond)

Solo: Andy

Just after midnight,
they are bringing me my pills
Just after midnight,
lights are out...at Black Hill
But they don't know me...
they don't know me at all
Tonight pills will be chills
will be kills

Waiting in the dark,
I cannot take another night
Waiting in the dark,
I cannot take it anymore

If I don't take my medication,
they will all be here
But I think I fooled them,
I think...I'm in the clear
"Nursie" doesn't know...
this is her last night
She even brought the key,
that's gonna set me free

Waiting in the dark,
I cannot take another night
Waiting in the dark,
I cannot take it anymore
Tonight I'm taking her instead
My hands are so much stronger
Than her isty-bitsy little head

Solo: Herb

Empty eyes are staring at the wall
I cannot hear her breathing anymore

Solo: Herb

I'm looking for the key in her hand
That bluish little hand

Running through the empty halls
of this forgotten place
Unlocking doors...
that never opens
But now I've got the key...
the key to freedom
And I'm unlocking doors
that never should be opened

Waiting in the dark,
I cannot take another night
Waiting in the dark,
I cannot take it anymore

6, 6, 6 miles...
I've been running through the woods
6, 6, 6 miles...
and now before me, the cemetery gates

I climb the gate between life and death
I walk upon the moolit graves

I'm home


Heads On The Wall
(Diamond/LaRocque)

Intro solo: Andy

I'm in a cold
and lonely tomb
Surrounded by darkness
in my newfound home

I'm not alone,
anymore,
alone,
anymore
I'm looking back
at yesterday
I do remember
my escape,
and what I had to do
Have to do,
don't you see, don't you see

Ah-h...
Heads on the wall...
I'm looking at
Heads on the wall...
dead yet alive
Heads on the wall
I'm looking at heads on the wall... heads

Theme solo: Andy

Did you know,
if you die in a graveyard
The soul can't escape
if you lose your head
But it lives on in the brain...
in your brain
Don't you see, don't you see

Ah-h...
Heads on the wall...
I'm looking at
Heads on the wall...
dead yet alive
Heads on the wall
I'm looking at heads on the wall

Last night,
when I climbed the cemetery gate
I saw a man digging in the ground
Working the late shift,
it was the gravedigger
Jeremiah had worked here for years
Already had one foot in the grave
With my help we got in the other
I can't believe... he wasn't stronger

Solo: Herb

Mary the hooker was coming to church
To let the reverend fill up her purse
Jesse Bell, may his soul rest in HELL
No one must find out, no one must tell

Solo: Andy

Heads on the wall...
I'm looking at
Heads on the wall...
dead yet alive
Heads on the wall
And they're staring at me, and me, and me

No one comes
and leaves again
I've got to make sure
no one knows where I am
Especially THAT man...
I remember
I can't get rid of those voices


Whispers
(Diamond/LaRocque)

You've got to get his daughter, daughter, daughter
You've got to get his daughter, daughter, daughter
You've got to get his daughter, daughter, daughter
You've got to get his daughter, daughter, daughter
Lucy...


I'm Not A Stranger
(Diamond)

I've been watching Lucy all week
I've been watching her at school
I know her schedule,
I know it well
I know exactly when she's leaving Oh Lucy
take my hand,
how can I make you understand
I'm not a stranger,
I am a friend
I'm gonna take you home to Daddy... later

Such beautiful eyes you have,
such beautiful hair
You must be at least seven years of age,
am I right now?
As if I really care

Cause you're his daughter,
his little daughter
The one I'm supposed to have hurt
But I could never,
I could never
I could never hurt a little girl like you

Oh Lucy
take my hand,
how can I make you understand
I'm not a stranger,
I am a friend
I'm gonna take you home to Daddy... later

Solo: Herb

Such beautiful eyes you have,
such beautiful hair
You must be at least seven years of age
But who cares,
'cause you're coming with me NOW!

Solo: Andy

Come on little girl...
Why are you making such a fuss
Come on little girl...
come on it is time

I've got real dolls on my wall,
I made them myself
And you can play with them
and play with them and play with them
Until your Daddy comes to get you

Oh Lucy
take my hand,
how can I make you understand
I'm not a stranger,
I am a friend
I'm gonna take you home to Daddy... later

I I I I and you will soon be home now
I I I I and you are gonna play then
I I I I and you you you you
We we we we, we're gonna have some fun

Sweet graveyard here we come
Sweet graveyard here we come
Sweet graveyard here we come
Sweet graveyard


Digging Graves
(Diamond)

Lucy,
you stay here...
the tomb is warm
Why don't you play with the dools...
The dolls on the wall

I am not the guy I used to be,
not since he put me away
I left half my brain behind,
back in that crazy place
Does that mean...
that I am insane
Does that really mean...
that I am to blame... NO NO NO

Is it true what they say...
little girls don't cry
Is it true what they say...
Lucy
look at me

I am not the guy I used to be,
not since he put me away
I left half my brain behind,
back in that crazy place
Does that mean...
that I am insane
Does that really mean...
that I am to blame... NO NO NO

Into the night I go,
and you can't follow me
Into the night I go,
and you can't follow me
I will be your misery,
I'm gonna be your HELL
I will be your misery,
and I wish you well,
in HELL

I'm digging graves,
seven deadly tombs
I'm digging graves,
below that crazy moon
I will be your misery,
I'm gonna be your HELL
I will be your misery,
and I wish you well,
in HELL

McKenzie,
how could you think I'd forget

Solo: Andy
Solo: Herb


All graves done...
I'm so clever
Seven headstones in all...
saying "Lucy Forever"

I am not the guy I used to be,
not since he put me away
I left half my brain behind,
back in that crazy place
Does that mean...
that I am insane
Does that really mean...
that I am to blame... NO NO NO

Into the night I go,
and you can't follow me
Into the night I go,
and you can't follow me
I will be your misery,
I'm gonna be your HELL
I will be your misery,
and I wish you well,
in HELL

I'm digging graves,
seven deadly tombs
I'm digging graves,
below that crazy moon

Solo: Herb

Into the night I go,
and you can't follow me...


Мeet Me At Midnight
(Diamond/LaRocque)

Yesterday
as I finished the last of the seven graves
I went to call McKenzie
I woke him up in the middle of the night
You should have heard me...
SURPRISE!

Oh revenge is sweet
Up and awake,
McKenzie knew that I was still alive
And I have to tell you
He is the Mayor of this God forsaken town
He's Lucy's father,
the man that brought me down

He is such a sick little man
He's so much sicker than me,
and I am
Ah... ah...
Meet me at midnight by the cemetery gates
Ah... ah...
Meet me at midnight or your Lucy will be dead

Revenge is sweet
Revenge is sweet,
I know that you agree

Solo: Andy

Call me sick in the head,
but I would never lie to you
I worked for the man
Mayor McKenzie is an old perverted swine
I caught him one night,
molesting his own little child

Who do you think they all believed?

Solo: Andy

He is such a sick little man
He's so much sicker than me,
and I am
Ah... ah...
Meet me at midnight by the cemetery gates
Ah... ah...
Meet me at midnight or your Lucy will be dead

McKenzie did you hear me?..
No Lucy, she is fine
She's sleeping in her coffin
Can't wait to meet your face again

Solo: Herb

He is such a sick little man
He's so much sicker than me,
and I am
Ah... ah...
Meet me at midnight by the cemetery gates
Ah... ah...
Meet me at midnight or your Lucy will be dead


Sleep Tight Little Baby
(Diamond)

Lucy...
it's time for bed now,
and you need your rest
So lie down in your coffin dear,
and sleep tight
I'll wake you when Daddy's here,
alright ?
No No don't...
d-d-don't cry little girl
Little girl from head to toe
Deep into the ground you go...
down... DOWN!

Sleep tight little baby,
sleep tight below the ground
Sleep tight little baby,
nowhere to run around
OH... The worms,
Oh... The worms

Is that your Daddy...
your Daddy?

Sleep tight little baby,
sleep tight below the ground
Sleep tight little baby,
nowhere to run around
OH... The worms,
Oh... The worms

Is that your Daddy...
your Daddy?

And as I'm waiting by the cemetery gates For her father to show
Something's pounding at my head
It's like I... I, I can still hear her
SCREAMING

Solo: Andy

Oh Lucy,
I'm doing all this for you
Oh Lucy,
I didn't mean to,
I didn't want to
But you've got to

Sleep tight little baby,
sleep tight below the ground
Sleep tight little baby,
nowhere to run around
OH... The worms,
Oh... The worms

Is that your Daddy...
your Daddy?

So you came at last ?
Let me see your heart
Let me see your face,
you son of a bitch

Solo: Herb

I see a baby crying,
I see a little tear
Oh yeah, I know you're trying
But you can't stop the fear..
DADDY!

If you ever want to see your little girl again
You better do as I say
Dear Mr. Mayor,
welcome to my humble tomb
Come inside,
you know you have to...
Ha-ha-ha...


Daddy
(Diamond)

Oh Daddy...
I'm so alone,
Oh Daddy...
come home
Oh Daddy...
I've missed you so
Oh Daddy...
tell me what to do

Daddy
don't look at me like that
I didn't do it...
HE did...
It was HIM
I could never...
I could never
I wasn't even there

SOLO: Andy

Daddy
tell me what to do...
Daddy... No don't no

Oh Daddy, you're fading away
Oh Daddy,
Daddy please stay
Oh...you're fading away
Oh Daddy,
Daddy please stay

You're going down,
you're going down, McKenzie

Sit down you creep,
you degenerate son of a sheep

What am I to do you...
with you?

You're going down,
you're going down, McKenzie

Sit down you creep,
you degenerate son of a sheep

What am I to do you...
with you?

Sit down you creep,
you degenerate sheep

You're going down,
you're going down, McKenzie


Trick Or Treat
(Diamond)

The only light inside this tomb
Is coming from so high above us
Watching through a tiny window,
the moon is looking on

Down on your knees,
down if you please
While I blindfold your eyes
Ha-ha-ha...
The two of us are gonna play a little game
I think that I will call it

Trick or treat,
let us go hide and seek
Follow me into the night
Where the sun don't shine but the moon is bright

Lucy is sleeping...
in one of seven graves
Now you decide, which ones
are trick or treat

Trick or treat,
let us go hide and seek
I can only let you fail this twice
The third time you must be right

Lucy is sleeping...
in one of seven graves
Now you decide, which ones
are trick or treat

You better start digging
She could be dying while we speak
You better start digging
Before the worms have their feast

Solo: Herb/Andy

How does it feel, to be digging for someone you love
How does it feel... to be digging for LOVE?

Ohhhhh No No No,
you failed again
That's not Lucy...
that's someone else you've got
You blindfolded creep
I'm beginning to get the feel that you're
Digging your own grave

Solo: Herb

Lucy is sleeping...
in one of seven graves
Only one left chance,
to save your daughter
You better start digging
She could be dying while we speak
You better start digging
Before the worms have their feast

The only light inside this graveyard
Is coming from so high above us
Watching from the blackened sky,
the moon is looking on
Down on your knees,
dig if you please
While I blindfold your brain

One blow to the back of the head and
He is face down,
down in Lucy's grave

Lucy is sleeping...
in one of seven graves
Her Daddy won...
but I am winning now

I'm dragging him back,
back to the tomb
I'm dragging him back,
and I'm tying him down


Up From The Grave
(Diamond)

As I look him
deep in the eyes...
I see only
darkness
I must have knocked him out...
good I kind of like that...
I must go

Up Up Up from the grave
Up Up Up from the grave
Up Up Up from the grave
Up Up Up from the grave

Here we go again my friend,
deep into my twisted brain
I think I'm losing it again
La-La-La...... I'm digging for Lucy dear
La-La-La...... I've had it up to here

Lucy Lucy I am here,
Lucy Lucy don't you fear
I will get you out of there,
so you can breathe again
You can't sleep forever, dear
Lucy... come to DADDY

Up Up Up from the grave
Up Up Up from the grave
Up Up Up from the grave
Up Up Up from the grave

Here we go again my friend,
deep into my twisted brain
I think I'm losing it again
La-La-La...... Tell me what you see
La-La-La...... Tell me how it makes you feel

When I sing so nice-ly to you
Lu-u-cy


I Am
(Diamond)

Back... in the tomb,
Lucy is sitting on the floor
I... am,
I am standind by the door

The door to freedom...
the door that I shut so close
And as I take another look at my mind
I seem to think the sun has arrived...
No

McKenzie you better realize,
now it's just
you and I

Back... against the wall
McKenzie's on the stone cold floor
Hands... tied together,
nowhere to go for Mr.Mayor

The door to freedom...
the door that I shut so close
And as I take another look at my mind
I seem to think the sun has arrived

Solo: Andy

This court is now in session

You stand accused
of child abuse
Of stealing innocence
and freedom too

I am the only Judge,
I am the only Jury
I am your lawyer too,
so tell me what to do

What's it gonna be?
Are you guilty
or are you GUILTY!!!
Yes,
you just go ahead and cry

Solo: Herb

Back... against the wall
McKenzie's on the stone cold floor
Hands... tied together,
nowhere to go for Mr.Mayor

The door to freedom...
the door that I shut so close
And as I take another look at my mind
I seem to think the sun has arrived
But Oh No...
There is no sun here
There's only darkness... ... ...

I,
the Jury and the Judge
Find you guilty of stealing
the innocence of a child
And therefore
we sentence you
to die
slowly, die
Die die die die die die die.....


Lucy Forever
(Diamond/LaRocque)

I leave it up me me girl,
You tell me when and I'll act
By the first light of dawn,
Daddy will be on his way
By the first light of dawn,
No more Daddy,
I say
I leave it up to me girl
You tell me when and I'll make him disappear

I can feel...
the sun will soon be here
Get away from that string my dear
What do you think you're doing Lucy
Too late,
I should have seen it coming my way
Glass from the broken window,
oh so high above

Heading straight for my neck
By the first light of dawn,
my body lost its head
By the first light of dawn,
Oh God... I'm dead
I feel...
my soul is, creeping...
up into my brain

I guess I would be scared,
if I weren't already dead
But my blackened heart has told me
No one really cares anyway

Lucy, what are you doing now,
do not set him free girl
Lucy, what are you doing now
You better take a listen to my head
Did you hear what it said

The view is so very strange,
so strange from here
Facing the floor is hard,
when you're nothing but a ball
How could the mayor win,
and I become one of THEM
I'm just a head on the floor
My body is over there, but I am still right here

Lucy...
come back to me
Lucy...
you cannot leave me like this

Solo: Herb

Lucy, I hear your little feet coming my way
Pick me up and let us head for home
But not a word to Daddy

So she puts my head in her backpack
Lucy forever, I'll be with Lucy forever
Lucy forever, I'll be with Lucy forever
Lucy forever, I'll be with Lucy forever
Lucy forever, I'll be with Lucy forever Ever...ever...ever...ever...ever...ever
