all King Diamond lyrics

"We Are gathered here tonight to lay
to rest Abigail La'Fey.
What 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
One of each am,heart and knees
And let the last of the 7 be drown
through her mouth so that she may
never rise and cause evil again
Who will be the first?"
"I O'Brain of the Black Horseman"back to top
(lead intro:Michael)
"That must be it"
(theme:Andy solo:Michael)
Through the summer rain of 1845
The coach had finally arrived
To the valley where the crossroads
meet below
And where all darkness seems to grow
People blame it on the hill
The hill where no one dares to go
...The Mansion
The coach had stopped and from the
Window you could see
7 Horsemen in the night
Miriam Natias and Jonathan La'Fey
Saw the magic in their eyes
They were in for a surprise
The darkness would soon be complete
A horsemen come forth from the dark
"We know You've come to inherit
what's Yours...the Mansion
Take our advise and
go back on this night
If you refuse 18 will
become 9 ... oh,no"
Oh 18 is 9
(theme:Andy solo:Michael)
Jonathan laughed and said
"Get out of my way
I don't believe a words You say"
The 7 horsemen disappeared
into the night
And said "Some day You'll need
our help my friend"
I think poor Jonathan was scared
18 is actually 9 it stuck in his mind

(solo:Andy)back to top
A Mansion In Darkness
Riding up the alley in the rain
No lights to show the way
How could this even be their home
Through the darkness
you could only see
A giant shadow which was to be
A house where evil ruled at night
And the shadow at the gate it seemed
to be alive
Yeah the shadow at the gate,alive!
Everything inside was left untouched
Except for what the rats had got
And the dust of time that
showed it's mark
Armed with candlelight and open eyes
Through the dark they fought their way
Till 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 down
Dreaming ... dreaming
And they did not know about the shadow
Yeah the shadow on the wall,sunrise!
(solo:Michael theme and solo:Andy)back to top
The Family Ghost
The darkness come 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 La'Fey
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"
(solo:Michael solo:Andy)
"Beware of the slippery stairs
You could easily fall and break
Your neck
Hand me that touch and will lead the way
To the secret in the dark
... secret in the dark
Take a look into the vault,the vault"
"The sarcophagus ... of a child
Abigail has been here
for year and years
Still born: Born ... Born ... Born"
"The spirit of Abigail is inside
Your wife
And there is only one way You can
Stop the rebirth of evil itself
You must take her life now"back to top
The 7th Day Of July 1777
Count de La fey uncovered
his cheating wife
9 month of loving and sharing
On it was a bastard child
How could he have been so blind
"No bastard baby
Will inherit what's mine"
Another one of her affairs
Had left him in despair
So he pushed her down the stairs
To die. "No!" she cried
In 1777 of the 7th Day of July
The countess broke her neck and the
embryo came out dead
Then he burned his beloved wife
And the embryo he gave a name
"Abigail You must rest in shame"
Rest in shame
Obsessed with a strange idea
He wanted to mumnify
The girl for the future to find...
and he did
So he pushed her down the stairs
To die "No" she cried
In 1777 on the 7th Day Of Julyback to top
Nobody's inside the church but
the bell is ringing
For no reason the flowers are dying
Oh,Deadly omens
Oh,Deadly omens
Inside the mansion the air
is unbearable a rotten smell
In the dining room the table
is set for 3
Oh,Deadly omens
Oh,Deadly omens
(solo:Michael solo:Andy)
"Miriam came here and see
what I've found,it's moving
And empty cradle swaying in the air
I did not bring it in here,
now did You?"
"No No No"
Oh,Deadly omens
Oh,Deadly omensback to top
The Possession
On the very next morning
When the mist was eaten way by the sun
Mirriam grew hour by hour and
Jonathan he cried
He knew the ghost had been telling
the truth
So this was 9
The pregnancy would not last overnight

Oh she started singing
A lullaby,rocking the cradle again
And then she said:
"I'm having Your baby my love ... love

But it wasn't love,oh no"
She was possessed ... and he knew
"I will get what is rightfully mine"
Speaking with different tongues
Miriam was eaten alive from inside
Again she said:
"I'm having Your baby my love ... love

But it wasn't love,oh no"
She was possessed ... possessedback to top
"Abigail I know You're in control
of her brain,Abigail
And I know that You're the one that's
Speaking through her,Abigail
Miriam can you here me"
"I'm alive inside your wife
Miriam's dead I'm her head..."
"Abigail,don't You think
what You've done,Abigail
I'll get a priest,he will know
How to get her soul back"
"Oh Jonathan,this is Miriam,
our time is out
Remember the stairs it's the only way"
(solo:Micheal solo:Andy)
"Abigail,nothing I can do but
give in,Abigail
Follow me to the crypt
Abigail,You ought to be reborn
where You died,Abigail"
"Jonathan,I agree ... Yes I do"
"I'm alive inside your wife
Miriam's dead I'm her head...
Soon I'll be free!!!"back to top
Black Horsemen
So there they stood at the top
of the stairs
Miriam in the moon,
Jonathan was scared
Gazing in to the dark,
Jonathan saw the star
For a second he turned his back
And she was where like a ghost
She pushed 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 that 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 labor 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 dÓwn
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 goodnight
