Black Laugh

CLICK TO VIEW LYRICS FOR BLACK LAUGH

I met a man who lived in gloom. Illumination left his room. 
His hair was long, a flowing stream, caressed his skin as in 
a dream. And in his eyes there was a void. This automatic, 
live android! Oh and laughter was his bane. He’ll never be 
the same again.

 

He told me he had once a lover and to compare there was
 no other. That took him back to ancient Rome, where in a
 temple, all alone, scripts of unknown lore were read and 
they on honeydew were fed. Oh and laughter was her 
name. He’ll never be the same again.

 

My friend looks up, his face is pale and in his eyes I see
 his tale, reflecting light and life and more as if they are two 
gilded doors. But now in spite of all the pain, his eyes light
up. He can’t explain. Oh and laughter lives again!
 He’s going to be the same again.

 

Wilderness

CLICK TO VIEW LYRICS FOR WILDERNESS

The end of the world is nigh

These crags without life

A castle that looms

This guy is a solemn monolith

Pounded by storms

Pinnacles dripping wet

In the wilderness

Awaiting the end of time

On an island so dark mountains

That stand sublime are an ocean apart

Raven

CLICK TO VIEW LYRICS FOR RAVEN

On an evening tense with murder

and a moon that blazes cold,

the land howls in agony

and another life dissolves

The castle waits,

a monolith with four turrets standing high

Spires try to rip to shreds

the dark myopic sky

The Count appears,

so pale, with a touch as soft as silk

His eyes are filled with anguish

for he cannot find the milk that

keeps his soul alive

and throbs within his breast

His heart, it pounds

The rhythm echoes off the walls,

like bells the lanterns ring

But now the constant pounding

is a raven on the wing

The raven lands,

it speaks, in an ancient tongue, explains,

that the Raven of Eupherides

has succeeded once again

to keep the Count alive

and put another soul to rest

It keeps the Count alive

Citadel

Went into the citadel to see what I could find

All I found was rabid rats and children going blind

They didn’t mind. It caught them by surprise

 

Went into the citadel to get some peace of mind

All I heard was ringing bells and no-one of my kind

They didn’t mind. It caught them by surprise

 

Went into the citadel to rescue me a Queen

All I found was holes and bones and now my Queen is free

But she didn’t mind. It caught her by surprise

The reason I can’t see you is because you’re never there

The reason you’re not there is cos you’re… air

Doppelganger, doppelganger, armor class five

The ethnographic ratio keeps you alive

You know you’ve never traveled and you’ve never socialized

Doppelganger, doppelganger see you on TV

I see you in the forests in the Gothic cemetery

You’re playing hide and seek with your personality

Doppelganger, doppelganger, bitte siehst mich sterben

auf mein fuß du siehst mich sterben an den kniem

Ich kann nicht ohne dich und ich kann nicht mit dir bitte

Doppelganger, doppelganger, fly away home

Your house is on fire and your kids are alone

It’s enough to make me sick, it’s enough to make me groan

Battle Axe

CLICK TO VIEW LYRICS FOR BATTLE AXE

Sharp-fire steel, blue-metal reel, bodies lie broken

Underfoot as the axe flies through the air

Long-sword striker, sparks fly higher, black eyes

Smiling in the mask as the axe strikes once again

 

Blood-soaked charmer, sword-struck armor, fear lies

Stagnant in the air as the axe flies to the mark

Charge of fear, shaft of spear, kingdom crumbles

In the dust and the axe has struck again

 

Forged by dwarves in the depths of a mountain using

Dragon Flame then steel-cooled in the Mystic Fountain

Battle Axe was tamed

Soldier rides his ebony stallion to the Bottomless Lake

And there sails the Viking Galleon to decide his fate

 

Charge of spear, sword-struck rear, body lies

Stagnant in the dust as the axe flies to the mask

Blood-soaked steel, blue-metal peel, fear lies

Broken underfoot as he wields the axe again

Quest

I’m on the Quest, cos I’m the best,

I’m on the Quest cos I’m better than the rest,

Going on the Quest, looking for Ptolemy’s Almagest

Going on the Quest

 

Sick of a rest, headed East then West

I drifted out to sea, drinking herbal tea

Put to the test to look for Almagest

Found Kublai Khan, he was in the pleasure barn

 

In the Dragon’s lair, where nobody dare

I was trapped in a mire, bitten by a Vampire

Put to the test to look for Almagest

Found Bonaparte, he had lost his art

 

Trapped in a cage, by a vicious Sage

After grisly slaughter ravaged by his daughter

Put to the test to look for Almagest

Found Joan of Arc, but she had missed her mark

Smorgasbord

CLICK TO VIEW LYRICS FOR SMORGASBORD

You’re invited to a smorgasbord

All the monsters will be there

You’re invited to a carnival,

For a feast of flesh and bone

 

Frankenstein will be wearing a tutu

He can do a pirouette

And the zombie has his dinner suit

He can be a star

 

I want to go to the smorgasbord

I want to see my friends

But Ma won’t let me out the door

She says it’ll be the end

 

If I don’t go to the smorgasbord,

I don’t know what I’ll do

Perhaps I’ll have to kill Mama,

So she can come along too

 

For entree there’ll be blood of baby,

Served up nice and piping hot

Or perhaps you’d like to Hail Mary

And put her on the spot.

 

Main course will be vestal virgin,

Dressed in white and undefiled

And of course she will be garnished,

With parsley, sage, rosemary, thyme

 

For tea we’ll have some cake and

Cake ourselves in blood

We’ll carrion till sunrise takes

Away the night’s dark hood

Maddalena

Maddalena is her name

Casting spells is her game

Better not get in her path

She knows where the spirits are

She’ll deal her cards,

Check the stars,

Believe it boy, she’ll take it far

Better not get in her way

If you do, she’ll make you pay

Power pumpin’, poison packin’,

Gonna get some skulls a-crackin’

Fire buildin’, balls she’s breakin’

All those souls she’s a taking

She’s got acid in her veins,

A snake for a brain

She won’t grow old,

With her crystalline soul

She’s got eyes full of hatred,

A life that’s wasted

She won’t stop,

Till she’s destroyed the crop

She’ll put your soul in a hole

That’s the story I’ve been told

Mother of Zorba

CLICK TO VIEW LYRICS FOR MOTHER OF ZORBA

I know a big black mama who’s very good at grammar

Has a son called Zorba who’s handy with a hammer

Her name is Juliet and she wields a wicked whip

Wearing scarlet velvet boots, this lady’s very hip

 

Kneeling at the altar, got a muzzle for a halter

Salvation from the mother, its coming will not falter

Now this little worm who is squirming at her feet

Knows what it’s like to turn and to go into the street

 

She’s reaching in the cupboard, it’s a serious scene

Wants to play a game called ‘the beggar and the queen’

There’s a knock at the door, just let your mother in

Get down on your knees to pray for your foul sin

 

Bowing down to mama, salvation is a hammer

Putting on the muzzle so she can teach some grammar

Her name is Juliet and she wields a wicked whip

Wearing scarlet velvet boots, this lady’s very hip

Doctor’s at play with the devil

Today, he’s in the lab

Creature unbound by a reason

Unsound is on the slab

The creature awakes and it’s the

Doctor’s mistake to set him free

Will burn, the doctor flees

Doctor’s affright of the creature

Tonight, he’s on the ice

But the monster’s on fire at the

Funeral pyre Prometheus

Crypt

CLICK TO VIEW LYRICS FOR CRYPT

There’s a shadow in the tomb, a mortal silhouette

The sound of digging fills the room and sarcophagus is hit

A voice in somber tones is reading from a scroll and

Revives the ancient bones as the bell begins to toll and

In the candlelight she sees a hideous vision of

Rotting flesh that’s old and dead and dry

For the world was very young

When tall Osiris died

 

There’s something going down at the old windmill

The pounding on the door is a-beating still

The monster from the crypt has found his long lost love

But she can’t leave necropolis soon enough

 

There’s a body in the tomb, an innocent pet

The sound of banging fills the room, has no one heard yet?

A loud, chilling cry screams from inside but

The echoes do not fly beyond the walls of the crypt and

In the candlelight she sees a hideous vision of

Rotting flesh that’s old and dead and dry

For the world was very young

When tall Osiris died

And the wolf is on the prowl

To engage in mortal blood-lust

May he find another hound

He’d like a Bloody Mary

The dream keeps on recurring

When the sun settles down

A victim will be bitten

Before the moon has done its round

He’s a misanthropic lycanthrope

Six hundred and sixty six

Transit Transylvania

The beast is gonna mix

Down at the monastery

He’d like a Bloody Mary

But Mary’s very wary as

Circumstances varied

Have answered any query

He’s on the howl again

Wants to take a journey to a foreign land

Collar up your neck cos he’s the Neck Romancer

Resuscitated Sorcerer’s taste-buds are tingling

On the floor of the basement their blood is mingling

Going down to the cemetery

I don’t seem to feel too good

There’s a body hanging from a tree

My heart feels like it’s made of wood

 

(A-ha ha)

 

And I don’t want to die

Just for telling a lie

No I don’t want to die

 

There’s a gang close on my tail

I can’t seem to shake them loose

They want to put me in the jail

So I can face the hangman’s noose

 

(A-no no)

And I don’t want to die

Just for telling a lie

No I don’t want to die

 

Being persecuted for a simple crime

Shed my tears and paid that price

That’s not enough, I’ve got to do time

For something which I didn’t think twice about

And I don’t want to die

Just for telling a lie

No I don’t want to die

The clowns are in the churchyard

They’re going two by two

For the skull of another jester is

Performing there at two

The Prince of Denmark is

Conducting a minor symphony and

Will attempt the execution of a

Grand soliloquy

 

The players have all entered

Now with mattocks and with spades as

For the comfort of their guest a

Pit of clay has to be made

For this fellow who was once a

Most gifted orator has been

Lying in the earth for three and

Twenty years or more

 

Alas, poor Yorrick, I knew him

 

He could have been a lawyer with

His quillets and tenures but

What does all that matter to

The grave he has been lured

Instead he spilt the wine as

The jester of the court and

The Prince of Denmark knows

Another lesson has been taught

 

Alas, poor Yorrick, I knew him, Horatio!

My best friend thinks he’s a Vampire,

Reads books about bats, he’s got a

Coffin on hire. Think I’d better

Call the Voodoo Umpire, coz

My best friend thinks he’s a Vampire

 

It was at midnight in a bleak

December, there came a gentle

Rapping at my chamber door

And I had nodded, from what I

Remember, I awoke with certain

Fears I hadn’t felt before

 

It was my best friend, I almost

Fell to the floor, He was decked in

Purple robes and other vestments

And when I asked him, ‘What are

You doing this for?’, He replied that,

‘Rigor Mortis is a sound investment’

 

Well, I was walking, just to see the

Sunset, when I saw a dark shadow

Jump in front of me. Who could it

Be now? It was my friend you bet,

But when he opened his mouth,

He had a set of false-teeth.

 

I said, ‘My friend, why you’re covered

In blood!’ But he was laughing as

He bit into his feral repast. He had a

Crowbar, and as he turned he said,

‘I need a new car, coz

The dead travel fast.’

 

Better hang some garlic

From your barbed wire
