Lucifer
(Diamond)

Our father who are in Hell 
Hallowed be thy name 
Thy kingdom is come 
Thy will is done 
On earth as it is in Hell 
We take this night our rightful due 
And trespass not on the path of He 
Lead us unto temptation 
And deliver us from false deity 
For thine is the Kingdom 
And the Power 
And the Glory 
Forever 
Shemhamforash!


The Uninvited Guest
(Diamond)

[SOLO: Shermann]

There's a little old man...standing by my window
There's a little old man...hiding in the shadows

The uninvited guest, could never have been a friend
The uninvited guest, he would never come back again

There's a little old man...I'd say he looks like Misery
There's a little old man...I could really use his company

The uninvited guest, could never have been a friend
The uninvited guest, he would never come back again

[SOLO: Denner]

Come inside...and stay for a little while
Come in from the cold and warm your heart

Come inside and tell me who you are
Come in from the cold and warm your heart

"You would not know of me...we never met before
The name is Damian and I used to live in this house"

[SOLO: Denner]

The uninvited guest, could never have been a friend
The uninvited guest, he would never come back again

There's a little old man...I'd say he looks like Misery
There's a little old man...I could really use his company

The uninvited guest, could never have been a friend
The uninvited guest, he would never come back again

[SOLO: Denner]

So I said farewell...until we meet again
You can come again my friend, any day you want
I later learned that he was never here
I later learned that he'd been dead a year
The uninvited


The Ghost Of Change
(Diamond)

Walking...on a cold and white December night
I hear...the voices from the other side

Calling my name, must be that olden friend
I think she has come to see me once again

Do you...still remember the old oak tree
I...do, the feeling's coming back to me

Calling my name, must be that olden friend
I think she has come to see me once again

[SOLO: Shermann]

You are the ghost of change, and now we meet again
You are the ghost of change, but I will always be the same

Ghost of change...do you remember my name
Ghost of change...do you remember my name

I took her hand, and then we walked into the night
I took her hand, and then we watched the moon go by
Memories...of long forgotten times
I took a chance to relive my life and then I saw her
She smiled

You are the ghost of change, and now we meet again
You are the ghost of change, but I will always be the same
The same

Walking...on a cold and white December night
I...hear, the voices from the other side

Calling my name, must be that olden friend
I think she has come to see me once again

Ghost of change...do you remember my name
Ghost of change...do you remember my name

[SOLO: Denner]

You are the ghost of change, and now we meet again
You are the ghost of change, but I will always be the same


Listen To The Bell
(Shermann / Diamond)

Up in the hills where the sun goes down
There's an old black church and a broken town
The sun goes down
The trees are dead and the river is dry
And they blame it all on the old belfry
The devils cry

Why? Why? Why? Listen to the bell
Why? Why? Why?
Listen to the bell and it just might tell you why

[SOLO: Denner]

It's a dark and lonely road to the old belfry
And if you're alone, you'll never survive...No..No..No
Deep...in the shadows
Everywhere I hear the devils cry

Why? Why? Do the devils cry?
Why? Why? Why? Do the devils cry?

[SOLO: Shermann]

I have seen the gateway that leads beyond
So far away from the burning sun
I've seen the Maker, I've seen the Taker
I've seen whatever you call THEM there
The blazing ruby eyes in the old belfry

Listen to the bell if you wanna know why
You gotta listen to the bell
And then you just might hear the sound of HELL

Why?...Why?...Why?...You gotta tell me why
Why?...Why? Why do the devils cry?

Why?...Why? Why do the devils cry?


Fifteen Men (And A Bottle Of Rum)
(Denner / Diamond)

Heading for a Western shore, the barque was sailing East
Close hauled into the eye
The "Unicorn" was riding high on the tide
And the rum went down their throats...with a twist of wine

Just...after midnight, nobody saw the Antigua shore
Just...after midnight, nobody heard the thunder roar
Ohh...they were heading straight for the reefs
Just...after midnight, they were caught by the storm

[SOLO: Shermann - Denner]

The captain and the crew were fighting for their lives
But they didn't stand a chance with their drunken minds
Going down...to their watery graves
Going down...going down...

Fifteen men and a bottle of rum
It's the captain and the crew of the "Unicorn"

Listen hard on a stormy night
And you just might hear them singing that rhyme
Oh yeah...A ghost that never dies
Fifteen men and a bottle of rum
It's the captain stuck in the "Unicorn"
Oh yeah...A ghost that never dies
It's a warning, storm is coming, yeah, you better look out


Into The Unknown
(Shermann / Diamond)

Darkness we are here tonight to select who's gonna die
Has everyone arrived?
Darkness open wide and let the lights go dim
While I dig into your soul my friend...
Looking for sin...sin...sin. Looking for sin..sin

Oh yeah, You're going into the unknown
Oh yeah, You're going into the unknown

Darkness we are here tonight to select who's gonna die
Has everyone arrived?
Darkness open wide and let the show begin
While we look into the Southern wind

Oh yeah, You're going into the unknown
Oh yeah, You're going into the unknown

[SOLO: Shermann]

Someone here will not survive the night that's creeping by
This is your time, not mine, for another life...
Don't you see...don't you see
You took a chance, now you must pay, say your last goodbye
This is your time, not mine, for another life...
Now die, die, die...

It is so much colder in here, hold on to your soul my dear
It is so much colder in here, hold on to...Nothing!!!

Who should I let go? Who needs to know...

[SOLO: Shermann]

The journey of a lonely soul, now you're on your own...yeah
The maker's waiting down the road, the dying has begun

Now my finger points at you
It is time for you to pay what's due
Now my finger points at you
And you must know...what you never ever knew

Oh yeah, You're going into the unknown
Oh yeah, You're going into the unknown

[SOLO: Denner]

Now my finger points at you, and you must know...
What you never ever knew

[SOLO: Denner]


Under The Spell
(Diamond)

[SOLO: Shermann]

There is something out there waiting for me
With an evil glow
There is something out there that will
Never let me go

Twisting, turning, I'm looking out for my soul
Twisting, turning, I'm looking out for my soul

I have seen the Southern witches, in the church of God
I have seen the Southern witches, and the Holy Ghost
Dancing, blasphemous, waiting for HIM to call
Dancing, blasphemous...uniting them all

[SOLO: Denner]

And I know this night so well
'cause I have walked from here to hell
The only thing I can never tell
Is why they put me under the spell
Under the spell...

Was it the deadly moon that gave me away
On Walpurgis Night
Was it the deadly moon that gave me away
Or the EVIL eye
Twisting, turning, I'm looking out for my soul
Twisting, turning, I'm looking out for my soul
And then HE came at last...

[SOLOS: Shermann - Denner]

Suddenly the Earth was shaking
And I...I couldn't feel a thing as I saw HIM...
Standing on the altar..
HE was drinking all the wine
While the Holy Ghost and the Southern witches...
Were turning every single cross around...and upside down
I never should have seen it
I never should have been there
I never should have understood


Deadtime
(Denner / Diamond)

"Lie down in your dead little baby
You know it's getting late
Listen to this deadtime story
And hold on to your head"

And it's wasy past her deadtime...the night has just died

Little blood red Riding Hood was passing through the woods
A basket full of poisoned fruit
She's absolutely way to cute

And it's way past her deadtime...the night has just died

Good Old Nick is in her blood and it makes me feel so hot
Devil eyes, that's no surprise, she's colder than ice
The werewolf is hiding with its yellow glowing eyes
Drooling for some baby blood, he's jumping in the night
And he knows where Red is riding
He knows here Grandma well
That big bad werewolf's got it down, he cannot fail

And it's way past her deadtime...the night has just died

[SOLO: Denner]

Grandma's waiting in here dead for sweetest little Red
When she ate the werewolf's head, you could not even tell
There is no way out
There is no way out for sweetest little Riding Hood
'cause Granny won't be full
Until Red is dead and gone...Bye, bye

[SOLO: Shermann]

And it's way past her deadtime...the night has just died


Holy Water
(Diamond)

I don't want that holy water, it makes me burn
I don't want that holy water, I guess I'll never learn

I'd rather drink from the Devil's well
And then I'll go to hell
I'd rather drink from the Devil's well
And then I will go straight to hell, Oh yeah

High on the mountain of Poltersberg there is a quiet lake
They say it's full of demons, that Satan keeps them there

Wash away your darkest sins, if that's what you believe
But keep in mind that if you do, who is it you deceive?

Cast a stone into this lake and soon a storm will rise
And suck out all the demons, up into the sky

Wash away your darkest sins, if that's what you believe
But keep in mind that if you do, who is it you deceive?

Oh holy water...holy water

I don't want that holy water, it makes me burn
I don't want that holy water, I guess I'll never learn
I'd rather drink from the Devil's well
And then I'll go to hell
I'd rather drink from the Devil's well
And then I will go straight to hell, Oh yeah

Deep in the vally of Blankenstein there is a sacred pool
They say that you can drink this water
It's cleansing of the soul

Wash away your darkest sins, if that's what you believe
But keep in mind that if you do, who is it you deceive?

I don't want that holy water, no..no..no..no..no
It makes me burn inside
I don't want that holy water, oh..no..


Kutulu (The Mad Arab, Part 2)
(Shermann / Diamond)

Someone better come and save my life
Someone better kill those evil eyes
Is it in my mind
Or are they still behind
Turning slowly
I see...I see...I see there's no one there

Someone better tell me what it's all about
In the dying fire
Moonlight has struck my eye
Turning colder
I see...I see...I see the amulet of EVIL GODS
EVIL GODS

Can you hear the voices in my head?
Can you hear the voices in my head?
Can you hear the voices, what they say?

Kutulu...Kutulu...Kutulu...Kutulu...

Traveling for years in the mountain side
Traveling for years to believe in the sign
And I know them well now
All of the Ancient Ones

Turning slowly
I see...I see...I see there's no one there

Someone must have broken the holy seal
'Cause I know they're there
Just like that fateful night

Feeling colder
I see...I see...I see the amulet of EVIL GODS!
EVIL GODS!

Can you hear the voices in my head?
Can you hear the voices in my head?
Can you hear the voices, what they say?

Kutulu...Kutulu...Kutulu...Kutulu...

Hear me as KUTULU raises his EVIL head
Dueling for my soul
I must finish this book tonight
Tomorrow....I might be of the dead!

I'm burning up...I'm burning up
I wish for you...The GODS will be Mercyful

Dueling for my soul
I must finish this book tonight
Tomorrow....I might be of the dead!

I'm burning up...I'm burning up
I wish for you...The GODS will be Mercyful
