01. Torture (1629)

Anna...was praying to a God
She had betrayed, so they said
Some folk had seen her flying on a broom
All Hallows Eve, under the moon

The Inquisitor had left her behind
Gone for a bite, food on his mind
The sun eas slowly trying to hide
Behind a town so full of pride
A sight Anna would never see again

Torture in the name of Christ, confess, oh you witch
Torture in the name of Christ, you witch you...confess

Sitting naked on the wooden horse
Weights to her legs, what a holy cross
Her bloody hands tied to her back
Her golden hair burned to black

Thumbscrews they had used
To crush each tip of her fingers to a pulp
In the torture chamber, she couldn't feel much more
Of anything...any more

Torture in the name of Christ, confess, oh you witch
Torture in the name of Christ, you witch you...confess

Satan's mark...had slipped away
They already searched her body twice today
And it was all in vain

Oh Anna here they come again
Off the horse, strapado for a friend
Up she goes, higher and higher
Anna's crying, screaming: "Liars"

Confess, confess witch
Confess, before you die

"Yes, yes, I am a witch, may Satan take you all"

They dropped her from the ceiling
To a foot above the floor
Her arms and legs disjoint
Screams of pain...then finally no...more


02. The Night

Old Nick is by my side, I hear no evil
As I walk into the night, I see no evil
Old Nick is by my side, I feel no evil
Oh...I'm gonna love this night...It's gonna be just fine

The two of us at midnight, a feeling of Hell
The two of us at midnight...
Just him and I, we're gonna spy on God

Old Nick...my imaginary friend
Old Nick is not what they say, here we go again,
Through the dark on a snake we ride, The Devil's child
Oh...the moon is bright, she's oh so fine

The two of us at midnight, a feeling of Hell
The two of us at midnight...
Just him and I, we're gonna spy on God

Find out who he really is
Find out who she really is, The Night
Find out if he really is
Find out if she really is, The Night

Looking through a Demon's eye
We're gonna spy on God
Find out if he really is
Find out if she really is

Old Nick is by my side, I feel no evil
Oh...I'm gonna love this night...It's gonna be just fine

The two of us at midnight, a feeling of Hell
The two of us at midnight...
Just him and I, we're gonna spy on God

The Night
Find out who he really is
Find out who she really is, The Night
Find out if he really is
Find out if she really is, The Night.....


03. Since Forever

On this cold and windy Sunday
I'm sitting here alone...It's Autumn
I'm looking at a yellow picture
You have been gone forever

Oh it's so very hard, growing old on your own, alone
I'm trying to remember...the days...
When we were young

Since forever, I still remember your ways
Since forever, I still remember

I have been reading your letter, over and over again
I can't believe you're gonna be here today
I can't believe...this is Sunday

How nice of you to come, it's been so way too long
Let me get you another glass of wine
To keep our tongues in time

Since forever, I still remember your ways
Since forever, I still remember

So many things have never been told
And now the both of us are way too old

Since forever, I still remember your ways
Since forever, I still remember

Like the light of the sun
You used to brightened my day
But darkness has taken your place
And I can no longer keep it away

Since forever, I still remember your ways
Since forever, I still remember

I ask you for one last time
No there won't be any wine
Just one more time
So you can put flowers on my grave
And then leave again...since forever


04. The Lady Who Cries

Many have seen the statue that cries
But only I have seen her at night
Many say that it...is a miracle
Many say that her...tears can heal you, but

When the sun goes down, and my day begins
That's when I saw her change
Her tears did turn to blood, just like a miracle
And through her mouth of stone, I saw the fire

From so deep inside, I heard a voice from Hell
"I am the lady who cries, I am he who lights the night"
"I am Lucifer"

Many say that it...is a miracle
Many say that her...tears can heal you, but

From so deep inside, I heard a voice from Hell
"I am the lady who cries, I am he who lights the night"

"I'm your eternal friend"

"Let my children come to me at day
Let my children come to me and pray"

"They don't know who I am
Or that they worship the Devil
"They don't know who I am
They think I'm a miracle..."


05. Banshee

I heard it... in my sleep last night
I heard it... in your sleep last night
Now I can hear it again, outside the night is sad
I know it's not the wind, outside the night is black

Under our window is the banshee
Wailing it's haunted tune
Under out window is the banshee
Wailing it's haunted tune too soon

I know that, I must tell you a lie
I know that, it could be you and not I
Before the sun is rising, the banshee cannot stay
Before the night is dying, a life will slip away

Under our window is the banshee
Wailing it's haunted tune
Under out window is the banshee
Wailing it's haunted tune too soon

I must light a fire, to chase away the night
Let us hold each other tight
The cats are gone, I guess... they know
Oh... they know what's gonna come

The wailing is so much louder, I need to hold you tight
I can feel you getting colder, is it time for you or I?

Under our window is the banshee
Wailing it's haunted tune
Under out window is the banshee
Wailing it's haunted tune too soon

Let it be me


06. Mandrake

Poisonous Mandrake, you dangerous root
One of the three fares, when a man's time has come

You look so human, so different from any other plant
You look so human, that the Devil might take you for a man

White Mandragora, with your root so thick you are the male
Black as the night on the outside, inside you're like a moon

You look so human, so different from any other plant
You look so human, that the Devil might take you for a man

Your leaves spread out...so close to the ground
Mandrake root, your berries are just like the sun
Mandrake root, as a female your root will forked
Your juice has been known, to take away lives
Cause insanity...am I losing my mind?

In the olden days it was believed
That in the dark of night, you had to
Tie a string from the neck of a
Black dog to the Mandrake root, then move away, move away
And with meat you must lure the dog
To pull the Mandrake root from the ground

Cover your eyes...cause the cry of the Mandrake root
No man has ever survived, the dog will surely die

Poisonous Mandrake, you dangerous root
One of the three fares, when a man's time has come

You look so human, so different from any other plant
You look so human, that the Devil might take you for a man

Your leaves spread out...so close to the ground
Mandrake root, your berries are just like the sun
Mandrake root, as a female your root will be forked
Your juice has been known, to take away lives
Cause insanity...am I losing my mind?

Mandrake root, bring me your poisonous love
Mandrake root, I need you to bring me that love
Mandrake root...Mandrake root bring me love
Mandrake root, bring me that poisonous thing
That everyone is calling LOVE


07. Sucking Your Blood

I can see it in your mystery eyes
I can feel it on your breath tonight
The yearning for time, the yearning for eternal life

Oh...oh...oh...sucking your blood, oh...oh...oh...

Let me look you deep in the eyes
Let me look...into your mind
Let me take you to a room full of life
Let me, let me, let me suck your wine

Oh...oh...oh...sucking your blood
Oh...oh...oh...sucking you, sucking your
Blood

A chandelier is our source of light
I'm breathing in the golden air tonight
Time...is right. It's your innocent skin I like

Oh...oh...oh...sucking your blood, oh...oh...oh...

Your neck is so delicately white, inviting my mouth for the bite
My teeth...your vein, like wine from a chalice I drink

Oh...oh...oh...sucking your blood
Oh...oh...oh...I'm sucking you, sucking you

Your warm juices colour my throat
What unheavenly joy, turning yours into mine

Me...part of you, oh you are the wine
Sucking your blood before the night is torn
How could this ever, ever be a sin

If you would pull the stake from my heart
If you would let me draw another card
Maybe the Morning Star will blind your eyes
Maybe the Morning Star will bless another night

Maybe the Morning Star will blind your eyes
Maybe the Morning Star will bless another night
Me...part of you, oh you are the wine


08. Dead Again

Why do I keep on doing this? It's not for me any more
I'm doing this more for you than I
And on that lonely road to nowhere
I lost myself to something else

I don't know where I'm going or where I've been
It's so hard to remember all the things I am, am I?
It feels like the end is near, catching up with me
Catch me if you can, cause I'm going down into the ground

How much longer can I keep going on?
I can feel my lost ones coming down
Sooner than later I'll see you all again
I feel my purpose here slipping away
I see the sun, but it's raining

I hope I'm on my way to better things
And if I'm not, it doesn't really matter
Cause I am doing this more for you than I am me
I can no longer pretend, that my life is worth living
I...I would rather die, be dead again

Hold on
Now here it comes, death for one, for a lonely son
Up then down. I'm spinning around
My soul is so confused again
Am I floating towards the sun?
Hold on, am I dead on?

Through a tunnel of black, why?
Why do I feel so sad?

I've been waiting for the end of act 9 to come
The curtain must fall, the end of a song

But the song goes on and on
The light is so very strong
I'm drifting along, I have no will

I'm drifting still
In a room without walls...I feel the chill
No one is here to pick me up
Nothingness...what a mess...oh
Is anybody there?

Is anybody there? I'm talking to you, do you hear me?
If I could only see through the wall of nothingness
The wall of black
They gave me number 9, this is not like last time
Number 9
This time I am really losing my mind

I hear an orchestra...I see an orchestra
I greet an orchestra...I meet an orchestra
I'm in an orchestra...I am an orchestra
I kill this orchestra...I kill me? No
No don't stop, oh please don't stop

Hey say here, what's going on?...hey wait for me

I'm running but I can't keep up
Then I realize my feet are gone
This is such a weird weird song
The orchestra is now a door
One is one and two is four. I can see three more
Seven doors, seven doors
I must choose one before they're gone

But I cannot move, oh they are drifting away now
But I cannot move, oh they are drifting away now
I've got to reach that door, the number 6
I've got to reach that door, the number 6
The number 6-6, the number 6-6-6
The number 6-6-6

The number 6-6-6, that's my door
Wuauuu...look at all the colours
There goes an orchestra, no more doors
Close the window, here they come
I hear another end of this song
But again the song goes on

Dead again. I know cause I've been here before
I'm dead again, if I could only reach that door
The number 6-6-6, the number 6-6-6

I'm beginning to miss you again
Why can't I just get you out of my mind...
I must forget

Dead again. I know cause I've been here before
I'm dead again, if I could only reach that door
Through a purple mist the light is fading
I guess I'll have to stay dead
A little longer this time

Dead again...


09. Fear

In the mirror...I have seen HIM
And he scares me
The creature...behind the mask I wear
I know his name is FEAR
In the mirror...He's looking back at me
I have to face him every day

And I know him not so well, his name is FEAR

So deep within, yet so far away
I...wonder, will he always stay
Stay so deep within, deep within my soul

And I know him not so well, his name is FEAR

The man...in the mirror, he scares me
For I know him not so well
The creature...behind the mask I wear
I know his name is FEAR
In the mirror...it's not my eyes I see
But they are always there

I cannot let it show. No one must ever know
The horror that lies so deep within
Tucked away beneath my skin

And it scares me, yes it scares me

So deep within, yet so far away
I...wonder, will he always stay
Stay so deep within, deep within my soul

And I know him not so well, his name is FEAR

No man...nor any book, will ever teach me
What I need to know
No man...nor any book, will ever teach me
What I'm longing for
Only the creature...living inside of me
Could show me the meaning of life

I cannot let it show. No one must ever know
The horror that lies so deep within
Tucked away beneath my skin

And it scares me, yes it scares me


10. Crossroads

You are Selene, the moon in heaven
You are Persephone, Queen of the Underworld
Hecate...darkness and terror of the night
Hecate...oh, the crossroads are thine
You are Diana, you are the hunter of souls
The dogs are howling, we dogs know when you approach

Let us ride with a beast tonight
Let us ride the crossroads
Let us ride with a beast tonight, oh let us ride

At the crossroads, they buried criminals and suicides
At the crossroads, any traveller could lose a life
A suitable place, for making a pact with the Devil
A suitable place, for us to hold the Sabbath

Let us ride with a beast tonight
Let us ride the crossroads
Let us ride with a beast tonight
Let us ride in the dead of night...

Even you mortals can ride with her at night
And join the night-flying demons, oh you and I
Listen to their tales of wandering ghosts
Listen to their tales of forgotten times
Listen to their tales of the crossroads
Listen to their tales of forgotten lives

Oh Diana

Hecate...darkness and terror of the night
Hecate...oh, the crossroads are thine
You are Diana, you are the hunter of souls
The dogs are howling, we dogs know when you approach

Let us ride with a beast tonight
Let us ride the crossroads
Let us ride with a beast tonight
Let us ride in the dead of night

To the crossroads...to the crossroads...
We ride to the crossroads, in search of your soul
We ride to the crossroads, in search of your soul...
