01. Midnight

Midnight...I see the snow that's falling
Midnight...Still hanging on this wall

I'm thinking back in time
To when there was still a life
Free of misery
Oh...But it was never to be

Midnight...I see the snow that's falling
Midnight...And still you're haunting me

I'm thinking back in time
To the cellar in the darkest night
All the misery
All...The blood I had to see

Midnight...Midnight...Midnight...Midnight...
They're ready for the show
Now the blood must flow
They're waiting above
Oh Noooo!

"Let the show begin"


02. The Puppet Master

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!

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

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...Gone


03. Magic

In the darkness...after the show
Outside the Theater, the air is damp and cold
All the people.. heading for home
They don't believe, that what they saw was Magic

Oh..it was Magic I know
This night was full of it, I never saw the undertow...No
Never saw the Evil, never saw the Evil
I never saw the Evil down below

"I will never forget that night"
I saw the Magic in your eyes
We will never forget that night
We saw the Magic in each other's eyes

In the darkness.. after the show
Outside the Theater, the air is damp and cold
All the people.. they are gone
Just you and me, and we believe in Magic

Oh.. it was Magic I know
Talking the night away, the things we like are all the same
Wanna get to know her, wanna get to know her
I gotta get to know her deep down inside

Suddenly I feel so cold...it feels as if a Ghost is next to me
Cold breath in my ear, as it whispers: "Kiss her now"

Oh.. it was Magic I know
That kiss one year ago, a magic seal of our eternal love
Tonight she went to the Theater alone
But she never came home and I gotta find her now

"I will never forget that night"
I saw the Magic in your eyes
We will never forget that night
We saw the Magic in each other's eyes
"I will never forget that night"
I saw the Magic in your eyes
We will never forget that night
We saw the Magic in each other's eyes


04. Emerencia

The shadows are thick and Old
I'm searching the dark for my love
Behind the Theater of Puppet Shows
I find the stairs to the Cellar below

Hiding where the shadows rule
A door opens below
The Moon is high above
300 pounds of flesh, that woman I know

Oh it's the Puppet Master's wife
She pulls a cart behind her
"Oh Emerencia", where are you going with that knife?

Time to kill, it's time for her nightly thrill
"Oh Emerencia", where are you going with that knife?

Deep in the night through the narrowest streets
I follow her every step
She is searching for innocent victims
"Oh Emerencia"
In an alley a homeless is sleeping
Approaching without a sound...and then...oh no

"How strange it is.. to see.. a life that slips away
How strange it is.. in Darkness Blood is Black not Red"

The knife is still deep in his chest
Gotta keep the Blood in its nest
She wraps him in the sack she brought
She better leave before she gets caught

Through the streets dark and Old
Through the streets, no one must know
Only the Moon and I
And none of us will ever tell
She pulls the body off the cart
Back at the Theater, down into the dark
"Oh Emerencia", I wonder why you left the door ajar

Deep in the night through the narrowest hallways
I follow her every step
There's a light from a doorway ahead of us
Where did she go, where did she go...? Oh no
What I see is a Horror Show...then the blow...


05. Blue Eyes

I open my eyes...I can barely see
I got a feeling inside
No one's here but me, no one's here but me...Ohhh

I'm stone cold...I must be lying on a floor
My hands are tied to the wall.. An Iron chain, I can't move at all
Oh...I remember, I must be in the Cellar

My eyes are sucking on the Dark to lighten the gloom
My eyes are no more blind, I can see what's in this room

Full of skeletons, dressed in human skin...
They're sitting on their shelves, a cellar full of Sin..
They're made from humans

"Ahh.. Ahh.. Ahh.."

So many Puppets here, there are eyes everywhere
There are eyes I recognize
Oh no, it's the eyes of my love.. The eyes of my love
Oh Victoria Nooooo

My hands are tied to the wall.. An Iron chain, I can't move at all
Oh...I remember

Full of skeletons, dressed in human skin:
They're sitting on their shelves, a cellar full of Sin..

I open my eyes.. I can barely see a thing
All the tears in my eyes, someone better say it's a dream

"Blue eyes, blue eyes", blue eyes I recognize
"Blue eyes in the night"
They see nothing, and yet they're so alive

Blue eyes, they're so alive
All the tears in my eyes, someone better say it's a dream

"Blue eyes, blue eyes", blue eyes I recognize
"Blue eyes in the night"
They see nothing, and yet they're so alive
Yet they're so alive: yet they're so alive


06. The Ritual

As I look into the eyes of Victoria
Enter the Puppet Master and his wife
I can't speak...I'm in shock...

Human skulls, ancient books
A strange symbol on the wall, black candles burning low

In the gloomy light, I see an altar in white
Oh, what is it for? It must be a Ritual

In glass jars, up on shelves
I see liquid dark as Hell, there's one for every Puppet

I hear the Master's voice, magic words from ancient times
I'm feeling strange inside
Oh...as if something has taken my mind

I hear the Master's voice, magic words from ancient times
I'm feeling strange inside
Oh...as if something has taken my mind
In panic, I kick the shelf.. with all the jars
One of them falls from high above.. to the floor
RED!! Oh so Red...it's BLOOD
"How dare you disturb my work"?

Demon skull, red as Blood
It's in the symbol on the wall, there's something deadly wrong

I feel a sting in my eyes, as they're given eternal life
All because of the Blood on the floor, interrupted Ritual

I hear the Master's voice, magic words from ancient times
I'm feeling strange inside
Oh...as if something has taken my mind
He lures away my soul, from its shelter and into the cold
To him my soul is gold
Trading souls with this Demon is something he knows
As well as Hell
Magic life.. is his return
Pain.. in my skin, SIN...
I feel some kind of Magic...inside


07. No More Me

Why am I strapped to this hospital bed?

"First your eyes, then your skin
We will make you feel.. born again.. No More Me my friend"

A shiny scalpel is in the Master's hand
His Wife has got the jars for Blood, she keeps one near
I fear for my life, No More Me
I fear there will be No More Me at all
Is this goodbye sweet life...

Ahhhhh...Scalpel cuts, eyelids drop
Into a jar...I'm crying Blood
Fingers pull my eyeballs out...
Scissors snap...I bleed a lot

They set my eyes into this Puppet's head
And still my eyes can see, I'm looking back.. at myself
And what I see is No More Me at all
I have no eyes

My veins...feel.. like worms
Drying in the sun... this takes too long
Stripping skin from all my bones
Pain too strong...my senses they go numb

All of my Blood is now in little jars
I should be dead by now, but I am still
I am still alive inside my eyes
And I see Emerencia throw my carcass in the trash


08. 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"


09. Darkness

For 13 days.. we have trained and trained
We're learning to walk again, we're learning to stretch our skin

Every time THEY bring us back to life
Little jars come down from the shelves
Every time we feel the sting
Every time we feel the Blood going in

Our eyes are now our minds
Our Souls.. are in our magical skin
The Blood THEY use must come from our own
Living just an hour, then we fade again

"In the Darkness we live our lives"
In the dark we die again
"In the Darkness we live our lives"
In the dark we die and die and die again

Darkness...Darkness

Every night Victoria and I
We spend what's left of the Blood in our systems
Sitting on opposite shelves
Talking with our eyes, trying to remember
It is all that we've got

Our eyes are now our minds
Our Souls.. are in our magical skin
We're living through our memories
And it's worth it...

"In the Darkness we live our lives"
In the dark we die again
"In the Darkness we live our lives"
In the dark we die and die and die again

Darkness...Darkness
The Puppet Master is here again

Puppet Master: "Tonight you will dance for me Puppet Girl
Tonight.. no strings attached"

Victoria:"But I can't, never did I dance, oh I don't have a chance"

Puppet Master: "Dance"

Victoria: "I take a step, oh I try my best
I stumble into the shelves with all the jars"
6...6...6 of them coming down
Broken glass and Puppet life is on the floor

"In the Darkness we live our lives"
P.M.: "Send her far away, far away from here"
"In the Darkness we live our lives"
P.M.: "To the other theater.. tomorrow morning she must be gone
Send her to Berlin...send that Puppet to Berlin"


10. 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

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"

Goodbye My Love


11. Christmas

"Come they told me
A newborn King to see
Our finest gifts we bring
To lay before the King...Oh when we come"

It's Christmas again.. it will never be the same
It's Christmas again, I know
There's only sadness in my soul

It's Christmas again...It'll never be the same

And as the snow is falling from the sky
All I wanna do is cry
I got to get away from here
I gotta get away........

By tomorrow, I will be gone
By tomorrow, I'll see the sun again
But tonight...I am...The Little Drummer boy

Tonight...I am...the one who will destroy

The secrets never told before
Of those who lost their souls
There are sad things in the Darkness
There are sad things all around us

It's Christmas again.. it will never be the same
It's Christmas again, I know
There's only sadness in my soul

It's Christmas again... It'll never be the same

"Come they told me
A newborn King to see
Our finest gifts we bring
To lay before the King..."
Now here I go
I'm falling on my face, drum breaking on the stage
Oh My God it's such a big disgrace

It's Christmas again.. it will never be the same
It's Christmas again, I know
There's only sadness in my soul


12. Living Dead

Same old wall, still hanging tall
Same old nail.. through my throat
Eighteen years came along
And this time I never
I never saw my Love

I'm going insane
THEY sold me to this little shop
Where I remain

Living Dead...I'm feeling like a Living Dead
Living Dead...Two blue eyes in an empty head
Dead Dead Dead

Eighteen years came along
And this time I never
I never saw my Love
This life is NOTHINGNESS
Life on a wall, time to be called back.. to the Beyond

[solos: Andy - Mike - Andy ]

There's a rumour going around and around
They say The Puppet Master
Is gonna build another theater in London Town

For Kids
Run by his son and daughter
It's gonna be a bloody mess

Living Dead...I'm feeling like a Living Dead
Living Dead, Living
Forever on the same old wall
Forever with that nail going through my throat

All the children, who see me in this shop
They are scared of me, they say I'm looking sick
My eyes follow them
Never to be sold again

Life is never fair...Life is air

"Will I ever see his eyes again
Will I ever see him again"

Where is she now... "Where is he now"...
