Thirteen Invitations

(Diamond)

The mansion was right on the shore 
Down by the lake 
Nobody had lived here before 
But the Devil himself 
Thirteen invitations 
Sent out through the night 
Thirteen invitations 
They would all arrive in time 
They gathered around the mansion 
Thirteen in all 
They had the same intention 
Never to fall 
Thirteen invitations 
Sent out through the night 
Thirteen invitations 
Promising eternal life 
So you want to be alive forevermore 
I will turn the wheel of time 
None of you will ever have to die 
I will turn the wheel of time 
Turning the wheel 
Turning the wheel of time 
But first we must play a game 
The game of souls 
Sit down! Don't move around! 
Deal those cards! 
They played all night 'til the morning light 
And the Devil, he smiled on his own 
They played all night for eternal life 
Or the chance of losing their souls 
High will win, low is the sin 
They played all night in the burning light 
The thirteen were sharing a nine 
High will win, low is the sin 
The final card was in the Devil's hand 
The King of Diamonds would win 
They could never leave the mansion 
Forever inside 
They had lost their souls of creation 
But they were alive 
Thirteen invitations 
Sent out through the night 
Thirteen invitations 
And the mansion was mine
