Out From The Asylum
Look,the old bitch is back - yeah,
finally we'll got some company again
the attic room has been locked up
for too long - just like the old bitch
herself - she's on time thought - why
that silly wheelchair?
Oh she's pretending as always -
but she does make a good cup of tea.
"Oh My God she's here.Missy,listen to
what Mother says.
Now You be good to Grandma;and remember
she's been away an a long vacation.
That goes for You too King.
And stop playing that thing.
Answer the door.back to top
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...

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...

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...

There's 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 is 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 to My friendback to top
The Invisible Guests
(solo:Pete solo:Andy)
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
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 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 My dear"
The invisible guests
(solo:Andy solo:Pete solo:Andy solo:Pet
Cups were rising in thin air
and then emptied on the floor
Suddenly the door was open
and Grandma' said:
Now I want you to go back
to sleep My dear"
"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
On the following friday
as I turned out the light
Grandma' came and knocked up at My door
"Wake up King,wake up My dear
I am gonna show you about the house
of Amon"
It's time for tea,it's time again
"Even Your mother is present
We made her sleep in My rocking chair"
At first I felt really scared
but there was no reason to
As I saw the knife sneaking out
from Grandmother's dress
Then it cut a tiny wound
in My Mother's little hand
It's time for tea,it's time again
Blood was running into the tea pot,
then I heard "THEM" laugh
"A bit of this in a cup of tea,
is what it takes to set "THEM" free
What I saw and what I heard
made me want stay and learn
I really hope this dream will never end

it's hard to describe the kind of
feeling that went on My mind
A paradise
(solo:Pete solo:Andy)
Hearing "THEIR" stories
and feeling "THEIR" warmth
We laughed with tears in our eyes
From the first cup of tea,
to the last drop of blood
Nothing seemed to matter at all anymore
My Mother? She didn't exist to me,
Oh I felt so heavenly
It's time for tea,it's time againback to top
Mother's Getting Weaker
Tonight would be the last night
that we had our tea
That bloody tea,
which sent us into ecstasy
Yesterday Mother complained,
filling dizzy,all in pain
Mother's getting weaker,
looking paler day by day
As morning came,
she could not make it out of bed
And Grandma's spell was getting
straight into her head
Not a single word,
she didn't seem to be alive
Getting weaker,
looking paler day by day
Then Missy came in
and she led me by the hand
I didn't want to go,
Oh but I should have known
Mother was barely conscious,
why should I care
Just looking forward
to the next ordeal
(solo:Andy solo:Pete solo:Andy)
I think I heard My sister
begging me to stay
She gave me phone,
so I could call someone for help
I simply let go of her hand,
the I cut the wire
Missy was crying as
I left them both behind
And Mother's getting weaker,
Missy shouted at My back
"I hate You"back to top
Bye,Bye Missy
Tea time Monday night,
I was waiting passing time
Then from the hallway,
I saw Mother in her nightdown
Swaying up the stairs,up the stairs,
it seemed so unreal
I knew Grandma' had sent "THEM" again,
the invisible friends
A little later at the middle of tea
we came close to ecstasy
"THEY" were telling tales
from beyond when Grandma's rose
She opened the door,
and there was Missy
Seeing Mother in Grandmother's chair
she went into tears
Missy was screaming
"What have You done,what have You
done to My Ma'",crying louder now
"We better get rid of her,She's to
young anyway",it was Grandma' who spoke
"Bye,bye Missy,be gone forever
The beautiful fireplace
in the kitchen will do"
(solo:Andy solo:Pete)
I saw Missy struggling
in Grandma' wrinkled hands
"Oh No,let me be,
Oh No Please No Grandma' Please
Aagh Grandma' You're hurting me
Don't touch me of I'll break it,
I've got the tea pot,I'll do it anyway"
I saw liquid spreading,
the bloody tea all over the floor
Now I heard "THEIR" voices,
some kind of devil's growls
(solo:Pete solo:Andy)
"THEY" dropped "THEIR" tea cups,
Grandma' stood still
forced by invisible hands
Missy went down the stairs
As I waved her goodbye,
Missy was sobbing away
Will I ever see her again,
Bye,bye Missy,don't be afraidback to top
A Broken Spell
I stumbled out of Grandma' room,
down the stairs and out of the house
Once outside I felt My mind
begin to fight a battle for control
With the tea pot broken
I kind of realized
That "THEIR" power was less here,
here on the outside
I feel to My knees in haziness
And I looked in through the window
to the cellar
Things were moving down there
"THEY" were searching for something
And "THEY" really found it,
the big axe was flying
Flying through the cellar door
Up the stairs to the kitchen...
Then I passed out
The next thing I remember seeing was
the smoke coming from the chimney
I soon realized the smoke
I saw was actually...Oh No!
All there was left of Missy
and her dress,poor little girl
The spell was broken,
I really left the change
As my mind and body became one again

The moon was alive with
it's silvery eye
Staring night into My evil heart
I went back to see if
My Grandma' was still there
Waiting for me in the attic...
Oh I hate that bitchback to top
The Accusation Chair
I kind of know that she would be
waiting for me in her room
With a sick smile she told me
not to be a fool
Her eyes went hard,
staring right into My brain
But I convinced her that
I was feeling real fine
Oh,I was lying...
seeing the look in her eyes
Clearing My mind was important
She believed everything I said
And then she asked me if
I would help to bring her outside
Oh,I was lucky...
"Let us stay for a while" she said
"Bathing ourselves in the moonlight"
So there she was,unprotected by "THEM"
I grabbed her cane,
and tore it out of her hand
"No way,You're not going escape"
"Now that I've got You...
here You will pay for Your deeds
Your sick mind has come to an end now"
"Stop it"
(solo:Andy solo:Pete)
Nowhere to hide,Grandma' had died
Alone in the night
Ant "THEY" were waiting for me,
waiting inside
Hoping that I would come back in
But I just run away
Into the woods,as far as I could
I saw "THEIR" eyes
And then I fainted again,going insane

Dreaming that I was one of "THEM"...
I hear "THEIR" voices all the timeback to top
Haunting acoustic guitar by Andy La Rocque. . .back to top
Twilight Symphony
Morning came and so did they,
flying questions form the police
I'm waiting here in an ambulance
for Dr.Landau
To return and tell me why
they're talking me so far away
"I did what I did and I glad I did,

'cos I could have been the...
I could have been the next in line"
Nobody found a trace of Missy
I'd be the last to tell them anyway
Now could I ever ever explain

Now I hear "THEM" again,
singing Twilight symphony,twilight
I hear "THEM" again,
singing Twilight symphony,twilight

Grandma' was dead with open neck
Blood still running from My open mouth

I knew they would blame it,
they would blame it all on me
Now could I ever ever explain

Now I hear "THEM" again,
singing Twilight symphony,twilight
I hear "THEM" again,
singing Twilight symphony,twilight

Dr.Landau returned
and I told him the story
"Are You mad or just insane?"
I tried anyway
"You can take him anyway now,
the boy has lost his mind"
Oh no no
I never seen My Mother
since they took me away
And Dr.Landau wouldn't tell me
He wouldn't tell me anything
Oh I am back on the outside
Time was caught up with me,
and I must leave for the old house
Yes I must leave now
Grandma'...I'm coming
I'm coming home now
I'm coming home nowback to top
Coming Home
"I know it was You at the door.
I saw You from the window now come
inside My dear.
It's good to see You again,despite what
You did to My throat.
"THEY" are waiting upstairs.
Missy is there too.
She's sitting on Grandma's lap.
I bet You're dying for a cup of tea."back to top
