The Candle
From "The Book of Jonah"

"7 Years Have Gone, It Can No Longer Be Left Undone
The Candle Must Be Burn Again, And Pain
Must Follow the Unholy Flame
So Burn...Burn...Burn
And Free the Spirit From Its Chain"

Here I AM Blinded Again By That Flame
In Every Candle That I Burn, Burn !
I See That Same Face Return, It Returns

Eyes In Pain, My Little Queen Are You A Dream
In Every Candle That I Burn, Burn !
I See That Same Face Return, It Returns
Solo: Mike
Time Has Come For You To Tell The Truth, What Shall I Do
Tears Are Running From Her Eyes
If She Could Only Tell Me Why, Tell Me Why
Solo: Mike
The Jonah...The Jonah

In Twisted Key She Speaks A Word To Me And Then I See
Her Face Falling Apart
The Word "Jonah" Is Her Mark, She's Branded

The Jonah
"After 7 Years On A Dusty Shelf
The Book Seemed Unreal
For 7 Years In An Ancient Rhyme
The Fate Of A Girl Was Sealed"

In The Attic I Was Searching By The Moonlight
What Would I Find
Old And Grey From Dust I felt It Staring Back
Oh That Book

Yellow Pages Caught My Eyes, So Unreal
Through the Dust Of Time
In An Ancient Rhyme The Truth Had Been Sealed
On A Broken Shelf It Would All Be Revealed
It Had Been There For Years
And No One Ever Knew

Now Break The Spell And Free The Girl
From The Candle Of Fate
Look At The Flame And Say The Rhyme
The End Is Near, No More Pain, Ah You're Free
Solo: Mike - Andy
As The Candle Melts Away The Spirit Of The Candle Girl
Emerges From The Flame, She Doesn't Seem The Sme
With A Smile On Her Face She Starts To Speak

The Portrait
The Spirit Of The Candle:

Theme: Mike
"My Mother Was Obsessed By Evil Jealousy
She Didn't Want Nobody To Even Look At Molly
She Kept Me Locked Up In This Attic 'Till I Died
Only 4 Years Old, My Story Left Untold"
Oh Molly...Oh Molly

"Mother Was Struck By This Infallible Idea
If She Could Paint My Portrait I Would Remain Immortal
And I Could Hang Downstairs Above The Fireplace
A Little Girl In Lace, Not A Single Trace Of Crime"
Solo: Andy
"Each day And Night She Worked And Autumn Turned To Spring
For Every Stroke She Painted A Little Life Was Ended
At Last I Felt So Weak I Could Not Even Speak
But In That Fatal Portrait My Spirit Came To Lfe Again"

Oh Molly
Solo: Mike - Theme: Mike
"That Night I Made The Portrait Speak In Evil Tongue:
You're Gonna Go Beyond Too, May Pain And Death Bestow You
She Grabbed A Book And Spoke Aloud An Ancient Rhyme
While She Burned The Portrait In The Candle Of Fate"
Oh Molly

Dressed In White
Theme: Mike
She's Wearing White Again But Colours Always Betray
Don't Look Into Her Eyes, There's An Evil Darkness Inside
Theme: Mike
You Might See Her But She Is Not Here
Leave Her Alone Don't Get To Near
One Touch And You'll Disappear
What A Scream You'll Never Hear

She Carries A Secret
And Where She Must Go...You'll Never Know
Solo: Mike
She Carries A Secret
And Where She Must Go...You'll Never Know
Solo: Andy - Theme: Mike
Searching But Not For A Home
A Restless Soul All On Its Own
Always Dressed In White
As She Passes On Through The Night

She Carries A Secret
And Where She Must Go...You'll Never Know

Charon
Welcome My Friend, My Name Is Charon
Please Take My Hand, I Know The Secret Land

Don't Be Afraid...Oh No
I'm Faceless But Don't Fear Now
I'll Take You Safe Across The River Styx

Waste No Time, Soon The Night Will Break Away
That Boy Can Wait, There's Only Room For One

Don't Be Afraid...Oh No
I'm Faceless But Don't Fear Now
I'll Take You Safe Across The River Styx
Solo: Andy
I Am Your Death
We Must Leave Now, My Boat Is Waiting
On The Other Shore Is The Land Of The Dead

Lurking In The Dark
Solo: Mike
When Nightfall Comes Around And The Light Of Day Is Gone
The Dark Closes In As The Last Candle Burns Out
It's Time To Send Off Your Mind On A Trip
Into The Land Of Dreams And Mist

Is Something Wrong
They Are Lurking In The Dark
Solo: Mike
Heavy Breathing But Nobody's There
If That's What You Think You'd Better Beware

Is Something Wrong
They Are Lurking In The Dark, Watching You
Solo: Andy - Solo: Mike
How Does It Feel To Be Alone In The Dark
How Do You Know They Won't Do Any Harm
They Can See You But You're Oh So Blind
Maybe It Only Appears In Your Mind

Is Something Wrong
They Are Lurking In The Dark, You'll Seeback to top

Every Night To Me Is Halloween

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
Solo: Mike
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

Stay Away, Molly's Soul Keeps Returning
Every Night To The Attic Shrine

Crying Out: "Mommy Why"

Molly Is Living There With Her Dolls
And They Are ALive...Wait And See

The Lake
It is Sunday morning, well right before dawn
A little girl is dancing, on the mansion "porch"
She calls out a name, "God give him the sea"
I'm here from the darkest deep
And hear my name...

Down by the lake, there's the shadow of grief
Dancind hand in hand with the Devil

Watching from the bridge, the one near by the lake
Why sister Margaret? No need the hate
Yes, we all know, "light your seventh cross"
Oh please do it my dear
While you're lost

Down by the lake...
Dancing hand in hand...

-Solo-

And the nun has been seen
I want your cross
Now come and play
Sister Margaret

Follow "pry", the nun won't give in
She catched us along
Scared as Hell, the little girl is screaming
When sister Margaret disapears in the lake

Down by the lake, there's the shadow of happiness
Dancing hand in hand with the Devilback to top
