Funeral
"We are gathered here tonight,
to lay to rest Abigail LaFey,
whom we now know
was first born dead
on The 7th Day of July 1777.

Abigail must be nailed to her coffin
with 7 silver spikes,
1 through each arm, hand and knee,
and let the last of the 7 be drawn through
her mouth
so that she may never rise and cause evil again

Who will be the first?"

"I O'Brian of the Black Horsemen."back to top
A Mansion in Darkness
THEME: Andy.

Riding up the alley in the rain
No lights to show the way
How could this ever be their home
Through the darkness You could only see
A giant shadow wich was to be
A house where evil ruled at night

And the shadows at the gate, they seemed to be alive
Yeah the shadows at the gate, Alive

Everything inside was left untouched
Except for what the rats had got
And the dust of time that showed its mark
Armed with candlelight and open eyes
Through the dark they fought their way
'Til every room was lit again...Again

And the house began to breathe, it seemed to be alive
Yeah the house began to breathe, Alive

THEME AND SOLO: Andy.

As the candlelight began to fade
And Jonathan said "Let's go to bed"
The fireplace had ceased to burn...Burn
Both were fast asleep before the dawn, Dreaming...Dreaming
And they did not know about the shadow

Yeah the shadow on the wall, it really came alive
Yeah the shadow on the wall, Sunrise!

SOLO: Mike.
THEME AND SOLO: Andy.back to top
The Family Ghost
The darkness came closer to home on the
following night
And Miriam slept like a rock when
Jonathan's face went white

The bedroom was ice cold
But the fire was burning still
The blinding light
The Family Ghost had risen again...The Ghost

"Don't be scared, Don't be scared now My Friend
I am Count de LaFey
Let me take You to the crypt down below
Where Abigail rests"

"Let Miriam sleep
She never would understand
Now come let us go...It's time to know"


"Beware of the slippery stairs
You could easily fall and break Your neck
Hand me that torch and I will lead the way
To the secret in the dark
Take a look into the vault, the Vault
The sarcophagus...of a child
Abigail has been in here for years and years
stillborn", Born...Born...Born

"The spirit of Abigail is inside Your Wife
and there's only one way You can stop
the rebirth of evil itself
You must take her life now"back to top
Black Horsemen
So there they stood at the top of the stairs
Miriam in the mood, Jonathan was scared
Gazing into the dark, Jonathan saw the star
For a second he turned his back
And she was there like a ghost
She him hard and clean
To the bottom of the stairs

"Now we're finally alone, Miriam
Abigail is here to stay"

The birth of Abigail would soon be realized
The second coming of a devil in disguise
And the moon did not shine
It was darker than ever before

On this sacred night
The soul of Miriam was crying out in pain
Remembering the day, arrival in the rain

The pain of labour was so strong that Miriam died
The final seeing was a pair of yellow eyes
You can still hear her screaming
If You're walking the stairs in July

Riding from beyond
The 7 Horsemen would arrive before the dawn
Servants of the count, when Abigail was born the first time

Oh no...they found her in the sarcophagus
Baby Abigail was eating, Oh I cannot tell You

"Take her...and bring her
To the chapel in the forest
So go now...The ceremony
And the coffin's waiting"

The Black Horsemen

That's the end of another lullaby
Time has come for me to say Goodnightback to top
Spare This Life
from the Abagail II record.

"I. O'Brian of the black horsemen, forbid this sacrilege You all know
that this demon child has Abagails spirit inside but what you don't
know is that she is the reincarnation of my stillborn half-sister her
spirit is not evil nor is it good all it wants, is to make things right
again so spare this life through which revenge can be mine and Abagails
can find her final peace I, O'Brian have spoken Let it be done"back to top
Mansion in Sorrow
from the abagail II record.

mansion in sorrow mansion in the dark maybe tomorrow the devils mark.
the gates were locked from the inside and abagail was sure to die then
little one went straight through her body and the gates, they opened
wide and little one went up the stairs to the old oak door. mansion in
sorrow mansion in the dark maybe tomorrow the devils mark. lightning
was striking the trees all around abagail still in shock, awoken by the
sound run better run better run after little one run better run run
after little one but little one had gone gone to the beyond mansion in
sorrow mansion in the dark suddenly the door was open where have you
been my dear? i'm brandon henry and i serve the master here. through a
maze og gloomy lhallways and candles black safe from the storm she
followed the man with the shaven head they went in..to a room...that
was like a shrine jewelry and dresses too...in cabinets made of glass
portrsits on the walls, 18 in all a strong scent of old perfume. and
then there was the hair long...black...lifelesshairback to top
Spirits
from the Abigail II record.

Jonathan is dead and Abigail is watching his wheelchair burn the flames
lick the wooden floor spreading to the curtains and then the draperies
on the walls higher and higher they go. "I am the fire... I'm eating
everything I'll bring this mansion down through me they all must come"
spirits flying through the air spirits crossing over the other side to
rest in peace and never die again and to be with long gone friends. the
ghosts of those who lived here in the past they will use the flames to
leave this EVIL house. Abigail is watching the spirits and the flames
dancing hand to hand around her long black dress Oh around and around
they go, until they touch Abigail is on fire. Spirits flying through the
air spirits crossing over to the other side to rest in peace and never
die again. and to be with long gone friends. there is no pain as
Abigail is eaten by the flames her body starts to fade, emptiness is
growing inside slowly she's leaving her body behind and the spirits are
right by her side oh no here she goes, her spirit is in the air the
others guide her to the flames where they all will disappear spirits fly
ing through the air spirits crossing over to the other side to rest in
peace and never die again and to be with long gone friends But Abigail
forgot one little thing "her own little twin"......back to top
Sorry Dear
from the Abigail II record.

"I wanna go home...it's cold down here
I don't like the dark Where are you mommy?
Mommiii...

please come back and take me away from here"
"Sorry Dear"

Eye of the Witch
[Music by:King Diamond]

It's so cold inside on this summer night
Black clouds in the sky dancing before my eyes
I'm losing track of time

It's the eye of the witch
It's the eye of the witch

Thunder bring the rain, penetrate my brain
I am no more the same, that special night has come
losing track of time

It's the eye of the witch
The eye..the eye..the eye

Another glass of wine to heat blood mine
And as I look inside the necklace called 'The Eye'
I'm going back in time

It's the eye of the witch
It's the eye of the witch
The eye..the eye..the eyeback to top
Sleepless Nights
[Music by Andy LaRocque]

I cannot sleep at night
That's what the day is for anyway

And as the clock strikes midnight
I hear "THEM" dancing at the graves
singing to My mind
killing the pain...sleepless nights...sleepless nights

I cannot sleep at night
That's what the day is for anyway

And as the clock strikes midnight
only "THEY" can let us meet
even though she's dead now
I gotta see her again...sleepless nights...sleepless nights

I cannot sleep at night
I will do anything to see Missy again

"Then let us make You an eternal deal
You will attend to the graves
You'll give us the house back and keep in mind
that we only come here at night".

So we made the deal under the starry night and
"AMON" belongs to "THEM" now...
I feel the dawn coming My way

And as the sun breaks up the dark
I can't hear "THEM" dance no more
There's no voices
killing the pain...pain...painback to top
The Puppet Master
[solo: Mike]

Night time in Budapest
So many people are waiting in line
Darkness without a glow
What a night to be watching a Christmas show

What a magical mystery feeling
Dancing at the end of their silvery strings
Almost human in size
Like children with plague in their flesh
These Puppets are oh so grotesque

Night time in Budapest
The Puppet Theater is so dark inside
Gas lamps light the stage
We're watching as the curtain begins to rise

What a magical mystery feeling
Dancing at the end of their silvery strings
Almost human in size
Like children with plague in their flesh
These Puppets are so grotesque

Sssssshhhh...here come the Puppets
There is 1..2...I see 3 Puppets waiting in the wing
Then they start to walk, in line
And suddenly they're all on the stage
I see the Puppet Master high above on the walkway
He pulls one string and up goes a leg.. Down goes a head
He pulls one more and he lets them all go!

[solo: Andy]

No strings, none of them fall, no strings at all...

I take a look at the Little Drummer Boy, up on the stage.. Oh no
I think he looked at me.. ME, is he alive?
I get a little scared...as he starts to play his drum
On the skin of his hand, I see a little cut...BLOOD

[solos: Mike - Andy]

Night time in Budapest
So many things here are not what they seem
But we love them all
What a night to remember forevermore

What a magical mystery feeling
Dancing at the end of their silvery strings
Almost human in size
Like children with plague in their flesh
These Puppets are so grotesque

The show has come to an end
The Master himself is on the STAGE
With his CHILDREN, the curtain must fall
And then the Puppets they are...Goneback to top
Blood to Walk
Sitting in the cellar, watching all the others

It was only yesterday, needles in my skin
THEY turned my last remains into this Puppet thing

Blood to walk, blood to see
Blood to walk again and Blood to be

I can see, but I cannot move at all
Yet I have feelings, I know it's very strange

Blood to walk, blood to see
Blood to walk again and Blood to be

I'm on my shelf...Eternal eyes they never sleep
I take a look...and in the dark I see Victoria



There is no mistake, that is my beloved
Sitting on her shelf.. alone and so dead


There's a light outside the door
Mommy and Daddy are back for more.. "Let's play"

"Hello my children...In Blood I will teach you"



THEY take Victoria down from her shelf
THEY sit her on the floor.. and me in front of her

Blood to walk, blood to see
Blood to walk again and Blood to be

There are strings attached to our heads
There are strings in arms and legs
The Puppet Master"s hands
Oh they keep us straight

Pressing the needle in...I feel the sting, it's Emerencia
Injecting Blood...Into the both of us...It's hot

I think I see her move
There's a tingle in our skin
I can't believe...That she can she again...

There is no mistake, that is my beloved
I have missed you so.. oh no
It's like a Horror Show without a word we know
As we communicate.. with our eyes.. deep inside
We wonder why

Why our minds are now in our eyes
We can move without any strings

"They're alive...that's enough for today.. put them away"back to top
So Sad
I am sitting in the Dark, I'm with my Love
We are looking into each other's eyes
I know if THEY take her away, there is no life
Take her away and I die

"Tell me this is not goodbye"
Do you remember the Butterfly
"It made me cry"
I know...but we dried it's wings so it could fly again

[solo: Andy]

I wonder if this is the end, for You and I
I know we've got to say goodbye
I know that I would change my life.. for You
I would die for you

"I will always remember the things we used to do
All the memories I keep in here, just for me and You
With your image in my eyes
I take You with me when it's time to go"

I swear...I swear I'll find You
I'll keep on searching, searching till the end of time
"And if I can't survive without You by my side"
Then wait for me, wait for me
Wait on the other side.. I'll be there

"I can barely see You anymore"
You must remember the Butterfly, it did not die
"I Love You" ... I Love you Too
"I can't see You anymore"

Welcome Home
Grandma' welcome home... You have
been gone for far too long
Is this a dream, are You really back?

Let me help You out of the chair...
Grandma'
Let me touch You, let me feel... Ahhh

Grandma' take a look
What do You think of the house and
the silvery moon?
We are going to repaint the front door
soon

Let me help You out of the chair...
Grandma'
Let me touch You, let me feel... Ahhh

Wait till You see Your room up in the
attic
Prepared just like You said, without a
bed
You will find Your rocking chair and
the tea pot that Missy found

Let me help You out of the chair...
Grandma'
There is someone waiting for You,
now come along

Missy and Mother, they are dying to
meet You
How strange... she's spoken no word...
I wonder Grandma'! Are You all right?

Grandma' what was it like to be on
that holiday site
"Oh it could have been worse but
with "THEM" by my side
In the twilight "THEY" sang all the old
lullabies"
Grandma' who are "THEY"... "never
mind You dirty little brat"

"Let us go inside, something's on
"THEIR" mind
"THEY" are still alive, can You feel
"THEIR" eyes
Can You feel "THEIR" eyes?
Now that You are stuck with me You
better be my friend.back to top
The Invisible Guests
Late that night I awoke from My sleep
Hearing unknown voices laughing
insane
Grandma' was one, Oh it's coming
from the room next to mine

It's Grandma' room... the invisible
guests

As I stood there alone in the dark
Peeking through the keyhole, couldn't
believe My eyes
I'd never seen anything like it, only
Grandma' was inside the room

Speaking to no one... the invisible
guests

Cups were rising in thin air and then
emptied on the floor
Suddenly the door was open and
Grandma' said
"Do come in My little friend"

Missy and Mother were sleeping
downstairs
If they could see me in Grandmother's
chair

Grandmother said "look Me deep in
the eyes
You will forget what You saw here
tonight"

"I will let You in on the secret of this
house
The secret of Amon... that's what we
call this house
Now I want you to go back to sleep,
now go back to sleep My dear"

The invisible guests

Cups were rising in thin air and then
emptied on the floor
Suddenly the door was open and
Grandma' said
"Now you must go back to sleep"

"Go to sleep"... "Go to sleep"...
"Go to sleep"...

Missy and Mother were sleeping
downstairs
If they could see me in Grandmother's
chairback to top
Burn
[Music by: King Diamond]

The inquisition will take her to the hill
Ready for the kill, giving GOD his will
Everybody's there, none of them will care
Not a single prayer

Burn in the night, You're the devil's child
Burn in the night, You're the devil's child

Looking at the sky, soon the girl will die
Nobody will cry, hear her screaming why?
The priests are all in line, now they give the sign
Let the fire shine

Burn in the night, You're the devil's child
Burn in the night, You're the devil's child

They say the devil is here tonight
Then let him play his violin so wild

Higher, burning higher, flames will soon devour
Higher, burning higher, the smell of skin turned sour

Higher, burning higher, her lefs are scorched by life
Ashes to ashes, I see a smile on their wicked faces

Burn in the night, You're the devil's child
Burn in the night, You're the devil's child

Lightning from the sky, magic's coming by
As her necklace flies height into her eye
The priests are all in line, now they give the sign
Let the fire die

Burned in the night, there are no remains
Burned in the night, just a magic chainback to top
Halloween
Oh It's Halloween
Every Night To Me Is Halloween
Like An Ancient Scene
You Know Just What I Mean

Halloween Not Just A Dream

The Moon Is Full, Another Perfect Day Has Began
Like A Demon's Eye, That Devil's Eye
Will We Ever Die

Halloween You Are My Pride
Halloween Not Just A Dream

Every Night Will Be Another Evil Scene
Like In Horror Dreams I Want
I Command You To Scream

No Presents for Christmas
Christmas time is here again
Santa needs a helping hand
We cannot find his evil sheet
To draw his laying for the night
So all the waiting christmas trees
Gonna hear their master sing....

There's no presents, Not this Christmas
There's no presents
Tom and Jerry, Drinking Sherry
They don't give a damn

Christmas time is here again
Santa needs a helping hand
It's getting very, very late
St.Peter's crossed the Golden Gate
An Donald Duck is still in bed
I wonder who he's gonna help

There's no presents, Not this christmas
There's no presents
Tom and Jerry, All done Sherry
They don't give a damn

There's no presents, Not this Christmas
There's no presents
Tom and Jerry, Still Drinking Sherry
They don't give a damn

I'm dreaming of a white.... Sabbath....back to top
