01. A Dangerous Meeting

Music by Hank Shermann
Lyrics by King Diamond
Tonight the Circle is meeting again
Who will be the First to fall in Trance
In here nobody is sensing the Rain
Tonight a Spirit will glance

So as they're approaching Ghostly Hour
Seven People here are joining Hands
They think they know the Spirit to appear
Contact, the Table starts to dance

Time is standing still
It's a dangerous Meeting
They're gonna get themselves killed

Tonight the Circle is broken Forever
Seven People dead within a Trance
In here nobody is sensing the Rain
Tonight seven Souls are reaching Hell

Time was standing still
The Meeting is over
Their Journey is on

Oh, they should have known
Not to play with the Powers of Hell

Some People have lost their Way
Some People have lost their Mind


02. Nightmare

Music by Hank Shermann
Lyrics by King Diamond
Am I awake or is this just a Dream?
I had a Nightmare, some Sort of Vision
I was stuck in an empty Room
When the black Book appeared
The Lights were dim, but the Face in the Book was in Daylight
Eyes of Fire staring at me
It's the Eyes of a Woman
And I see, On her Spirit
Steppin' out of the Book

I hear her callin' for her Coven to come
There's a Light in the Doorway
Entering Shadows whose Number is 13
They do the Sign of the Devil's Seed

I'm in the Middle of a magic Ring
Somebody tell me, what's goin' on
"Only we know the Secret of the Curse that you bear"

Listen, they sing, the Coven sings
Night after Night I hear them sing
No, they're still here, I can hear them again
Night after Night I have this Dream

"You're only living on borrowed Time from your Fate"


03. Desecration Of Souls

Music by Hank Shermann/Michael Denner
Lyrics by King Diamond
Stay away white Magician, young Lovers and mourning Wife
You're not welcome on our Land
So I speak for the Dead

Magic Circles drawn after Midnight
Around Graves to be opened
He'll use the Wand to raise a Body
He'll ask the Questions and he'll burn the Remains
It's Desecration of Souls in their holy Lair

Copulation in the Night
Two Shadows upon a Grave
Screams of Pleasure and Screams of Pain
Young Lovers, you must be Insane
It's Desecration of Souls in their holy Lair
So I say again: Stay away, it's Desecration of Souls

Dyin' Flowers upon the Grave
Of a Husband who's lost his Maid
She's there on Duty, and the Tears she cries
They don't belong where the Flowers lie
It's Desecration of Souls in their holy Lair
So I say again: Stay away, it's Desecration of Souls


04. Night Of The Unborn

Music by Hank Shermann
Lyrics by King Diamond
I forbid you Entrance here, you step on hollow Ground
Don't you see this Chapel
Shut up! Hold your Tongue, they must rest in Silence
It's the Rebirth of the Unborn
Tonight is the Night

The Spirits of the Unborn will play tonight
The Unborn will play tonight
They will dance around the Chapel
It's a Feast for the Dead
They will Make a Fool of the Priest
And the Dead Boy's Choir will sing
A Song for the Dead to whom Life has just begun
Life of the Unborn
This One's for the Unborn

Did you know? 13 Days have come and gone
Since we had the First of June

The Spirits of the Unborn will play tonight
Forgive them, they didn't die


05. The Oath

Music & lyrics by King Diamond
By the Symbol of the Creator, I swear henceforth to be
A faithful Servant of his most puissant Arch-Angel
The Prince Lucifer
Whom the Creator designated as His Regent
And Lord of this World, Amen.

I deny Jesus Christ, the Deceiver
And I abjure the Christian Faith
Holding in contempt all of it's Works

As a Being now possessed of a human Body
In this World I swear to give my full Allegiance
To it's lawful Master, to worship Him
Our Lord Satan, and no other
In the name of Satan, the ruler of Earth
Open wide the Gates of Hell and come forth from the Abyss
By these Names: Satan, Leviathan, Belial, Lucifer
I will kiss the Goat

I swear to give my mind, my Body and Soul unreservedly
To the Furtherance of our Lord Satan's Designs

Do What Thou Wilt, Shall Be The Whole Of The Law

As it was in the Beginning, is now, and ever shall be
World without End, Amen.


06. Gypsy

Music by King Diamond/Michael Denner
Lyrics by King Diamond
This magic Winter Night I see a Light
Again I hear that Tune, some Sort of Croon
Oh No No No, Oh My Brain

I see them Gypsy Wagons left in the Snow
Oh I must see that Lady, I have to know

Gypsy Woman let me inside

They say you know the Secret, Secret of Time
So gaze into your Crystal and tell me All you see

Gypsy Woman let me know

"Oh my Son you were never Gone
You are the Devil's Child, and so am I"

Gypsy now I know you're not my Mother
You are a Part of my Soul, it's clear for All to see
Oh No No No, I Am You
Gypsy You're Inside of Me


07. Welcome Princess Of Hell

Music by Hank Shermann
Lyrics by King Diamond
I turn off the Lights, we like Darkness
Now you call my Name, you finally came
Even in the Night I see the Light shining bright
I'm alone with my Friends
Now I see you clear, we raise our Glasses
Welcome to my House Princess of Hell

Even in the Night I see the Light shining bright
I'm alone with my Friends
I will bring in here my Crystal Ball
I will gaze, you will know what is to come

I'm amazed of what I've seen tonight
I won't tell a living Soul, they would not believe
Welcome Princess of Hell

Never will I break the Oath I gave
I hail you again in Satan's Name, Princess of Hell
Even in the Night I see the Light shining bright
I'm alone with my friends

We will be back, we will be back


08. To One Far Away

[Instrumental]


09. Come To The Sabbath

Music & lyrics by King Diamond
Come come to the Sabbath, down by the ruined Bridge
Witches and Demons are coming
Just follow the magic Call
Come come to the Sabbath, down by the ruined Bridge
Later on the Master will join us
Called from the Heart of Hell

At first we light up a Fire, and then we hail our Lord
Two Candles, a black and a white, are placed upon the Altar
North, South, East and West, and so we clean the Air
High Priestess invoking the Devil, infernal Names are spoken

Come to the Sabbath... Sabbath... Sabbath... Sabbath
Come to the Sabbath

The Ceremony's proceeding, it's Time to grant your Wishes
An Evil Curse on the Priest who took the Life of Melissa
Now we must close up the Ritual, read the Enochian Key
And so it will be done, Amen... now come

Come to the Sabbath... Sabbath... Sabbath... Sabbath
Come to the Sabbath... now here we come

If you say Heaven, I say a Castle of Lies
You say forgive him, I say Revenge
My sweet Satan, You are The One
Death Kiss*
Dark lady coming out at night
Still glory
Let's those legs on fire
She's going to the well at night
Let's the mercy on and kill the fangs
A shock

Bells ringing from the citadel it's a woman
People running girl haunted
Death kiss blowin' down the lane
And now she's big enough the world is gonna die

Time slips away
You can't stop oh-ho
She may give us death kiss
She may give us a kiss

Everything is turned upside down
There's a child there divine
Dark lady taking care again yeah
Now she's walking back to hell with just her hands

Time slips away
You can't stop oh-ho
Death kiss

Aaahhh a little child
Aaahhh she's gonna die

The child has lost its way
The child is dead
Oh-ho she's dead
