Evil
(Shermann / Diamond)

I was born on the cemetery 
Under the sign of the moon 
Raised from my grave by the dead 
I was made a mercenary 
In the legions of Hell 
Now I'm king of pain, I'm insane 

You know my only pleasure 
Is to hear you cry 

I'd love to hear you cry 
I'd love to feel you die 

And I'll be the first 
To watch your funeral 
And I'll be the last to leave 

I'd love to hear you cry 

And when you're down beyond the ground 
I'll dig up your body again 
And make love to shame 
Oh lady cry, and say goodbye 
Oh lady cry, and say goodbye 
You've gotta say goodbye 
'Cause I will eat your mind


Curse Of The Pharaohs
(Shermann / Diamond)

Away out in Egypt in the valley of kings 
Where the mummified pharaohs 
Pretend dead in their sleep 

Don't touch, never ever steal 
Unless you're in for the kill 
Or you'll be hit by the curse of the pharaohs 
Yes you'll be hit and the curse is on you 

Now if you're breakin' the seals 
And disturbing the peace 
Then you're startin' up a curse 
Bringin' evil disease 

Don't touch, never ever steal 
Unless you're in for the kill 
Or you'll be hit by the curse of the pharaohs 
Yes you'll be hit and the curse is on you 

The curse of the pharaohs can be so deadly 
Or just destroying your future 
Makin' it all shady 

So don't touch, never ever steal 
Unless you're in for the kill 
Or you'll be hit by the curse of the pharaohs 
Yes you'll be hit and the curse is on you


Into The Coven
(Shermann / Diamond)

Howl like a wolf 
And a witch will open the door 
Follow me and meet our high priestess 

Come, come into my coven 
And become Lucifer's child 

Undress until you're naked 
And put on this white coat 
Take this white cross and go to the middle of the ring 

Come, come into my coven 
And become Lucifer's child 

Now crush it, crush the cross 

Suck the blood from this unholy knife 
Say after me: My soul belongs to Satan 

Now, now you're into my coven 
You are Lucifer's child 
Into the coven 
Lucifer's child


At The Sound Of The Demon Bell
(Shermann / Diamond)

Halloween is the night 
The legend says the ghost will rise 
On Halloween they can't redeem 
A restless soul from an ancient scene 

At the sound of the demon bell 
Everything will burn to Hell 
Rise... rise... rise... It's Halloween 
Rise... rise... The ghost will rise 

Reconciled with the powers of darkness 
He'll uncover a saint 
You won't believe... See for yourself 

I hear a bell 
A sound from Hell, the demon bell 
I see a lightin' shadow in between the graves 
Swinging his sword of hate towards the gates of Heaven 
"Beelzebub, Astaroth...Bring me the Devil" 
And as he says these words I can't believe my eyes 

Upon a burnin' cross 
The Lord Jesus, Satan's above 
It must be a shame 
To see the Lord fallin' again 
Now rise, reconcile with the powers of darkness 
Uncover a saint 
You better believe or see for yourself


Black Funeral
(Shermann / Diamond)

Bring the black box to the altar 
Now raise your hands and do the sign 
All hail Satan, yes hail Satan 
Lay down your swords, the evil star 

It's a black funeral 
She was a victim of my coven 

Open the black box on the altar 
Her blood is still hot, so let it out 
Oh hail Satan, yes hail Satan 
Now drink it, now drink, drink, forget that whore 

It's a black funeral 
She was the victim of my coven


Satan's Fall
(Shermann / Diamond)

They're walking by the night 
The moon has frozen blue 
Long black coats a shelter for the rain 
Their load must get through 
Now bats are leaving their trees 
They're joining the call 
Seven satanic Hell preachers 
Heading for the hall 

Bringing the blood of a newborn child 
Got to succeed, if not it's Satan's fall 

Home... Come home 
Evil messengers with blood stained wings 
Home... Come home 
Home... Come home 

Is it Satan's fall? 
No... It's Satan's call 

Craniums high on stakes 
It's Satan's epigraph 
Something you can't erase... 666 
Craniums high on stakes 
It's Satan's epigraph 
Something you can't erase... 666 

They call him the beast 

Use your demon eyes, uncover the disguise 
Time is out.. Yeah, I don't need your god 

Oh the law of Satan 
Pray and obey it forever 
Oh the law of Satan 

Innocent lovers...it's a lie 

Iron fists won't do no good against the evil eyes 
Of seven holy Hell preachers, don't you even try 
Now they cross the river Styx and see the castle rise 
So high 

Waiting on the other shore for Charon to arrive 
A shape with horns and glowing eyes, Satan's still alive 
He receives the sacrifice with evil laughs and pride 
You better escape, you've got to escape 
You cannot escape


Melissa
(Shermann / Diamond)

I'm kneeling in front of the altar 
Satan's cross upon the wall 
Strange emptiness, a crystal ball between two candles 
Melissa has entered another life 

Melissa, you were mine 
Melissa, you were the light 

She was a witch 
Why did they take you away? 

Melissa, you were the queen of the night 
Melissa, you were my light 

I swear revenge on the priest 
The priest must die 
He must die in the name of Hell 

Melissa, can you hear me? 
Melissa, are you there? 
Nothing is left outside at the stake 

They take the hurt 
Away from me 
I think Melissa's still with us
