Son of Evil
Unborn child of the coming darkness
Would you guide us through the time of dreariness

Face like an angel
Sing the Sabbath song
The power of evil
Poor child of sin

Licking my blood - this shadow of madness
Stealing my breath and leaving me soulless

Chorus:
I'm the fear
Deep in your soul
Cause I'm the son of evil
I'm the hate
I'll bring you to death
Cause I'm the son of evil

This nightmare roars - feeding despair
Breathing fire - disturbing the air

Face like a creature
Sing the Sabbath song
This Jesus of ruin
Praying with Judas tongue

My funeral is open and I'm buried alive
Birds singing poems of my satanic life

Chorus:
I'm the fear
Deep in your soul
Cause I'm the son of evil
I'm the hate
I'll bring you to death
Cause I'm the son of evil
 
 
The Grave Digger
Six feet under I'm still alive
Six feet under I've found my paradise
When I left, the skies were sober
I took this shrine last October
In this house of gloom and glory
I'm living now and tell my story
I've sold my soul, I've lived a lie
Come and hear my silent cry.

In the silence of the night
Where I shiver with affright
I reflect these wasted years
When I played with hopes and fears.

Chorus:
He took my life, I've lost control
He killed my wife, he sold my soul
The grave is open, the digger smiles
He takes me under, the deadly skies
The grave digger.

I'm shouting, crying, I feel the pain
I'm shouting, dying, I'm nameless brain
The chains of lies, no chance for heaven
All my sins are unforgiven
From time to time I'm going insane
I feel the hunger in my veins
To kill this nightmare in my head
And to save me from the dead

In the silence of the night
Where I shiver with affright
I reflect these wasted years
When I played with hopes and fears.

Chorus:
He took my life, I've lost control
He killed my wife, he sold my soul
The grave is open, the digger smiles
He takes me under, the deadly skies
The grave digger, the grave digger..

From time to time I'm going insane
I feel the hunger in my veins
To kill this nightmare in my head
And to save me from the dead
 
 
Raven
Once upon a midnight dreary
While I pondered weak and weary
Lost my wife named Leonore
An angel now for evermore
Thunder, lighting crushed the sky
A raven stood before my eye
Flew into the chambers door
When such name as Nevermore

Chorus:
Raise your face to the midnight sun
Don't touch the angel, don't hide and run
Look into the eye of this evil toy
Fly with the raven seek and destroy

Caught from some unhappy master
An unmerciful disaster
The raven fades away my sadness
Made me smile but made me restless
Prophet said I, thing of evil
Haunted horror, priest of devil
Let me stay there with my pain
Demonic sorrow crawls through my veins

Chorus:
Raise your face to the midnight sun
Don't touch the angel, don't hide and run
Look into the eye of this evil toy
Fly with the raven seek and destroy
 
 
Scythe of Time
I see the church / the town of Edinboro
A tower of memories / of love and sorrow
I remember the past / as I was a child
Dreaming of God and trying to fly
I climb the stairs straight to the top
Thinking and screaming ,about such lowly lot
I know for death who comes for me
But in my mind I cannot see

Chorus:
Hours of Fate are in me neck
I feel the scythe of time and there's no way back

I put my head out through the window
Watching the people on the streets below
And I forgot the tower's clock
A lonely prison what a shock
I feel the pointer cut into my flesh
I lost an eye and blood runs down my neck
I see my head falling down from the tower
I know I'm dead and I lost me power

Chorus:
Hours of Fate are in me neck
I feel the scythe of time and there's no way back
 
 
Spirits of the Dead
The war is over and people lying,
Dead and buried in mother earth
Corpses cover the ground and the world is dying,
Dead and buried an eternal birth
Alone and unknown they are lying there,
Awaken madness and sweetest sadness
Visions of the dark night,
A waking dream of life and light
Barks cross the river death,
Rain comes down upon their head.

Soulless creatures, bloodless shadows
Isolation all around

Chorus:
Spirits of the dead are calling
The unholy side by side
Bloody hope to mortals given
Spirits of the dead crawling through the night

Captured by insanity, captured by reality,
Looking back in melancholy
The good and bad, the worst and best,
Now they've gone to there eternal rest

Soulless creatures, bloodless shadows
Isolation all around

Chorus:
Spirits of the dead are calling
The unholy side by side
Bloody hope to mortals given
Spirits of the dead crawling through the night
 
 
The House
I'm riding through the night, a friend has called me
I see the moonless sky, the stars shine bright
The house before me, fog hangs over
I'm standing there alone in the dark

I ring the bell
He opens the door
He looks like death
No shadow on the floor

It seems life's gone out of his body
And madness has now taken control

Pale and grey
A weird mind
His sister is dead
And I'm so blind

Deep in the house
She's lying there
This bird of happiness
With long black hair

Chorus:
Silent screams out of the distance
It seems the walls would talk to me
Whispering voices out of the grave
It seems the house can't set me free

Horror running through my veins
As I see my friend going insane

Pale and grey
He's standing there
Scratching and moaning,
Disturbing the air

He knows that he buried his sister alive
But as he sees her he knows that he'll die

Chorus:
Silent screams out of the distance
It seems the walls would talk to me
Whispering voices out of the grave
It seems the house can't set me free

And it's burning...
 
 
King Pest
It's twelve o'clock in London town
Human beings creeping round
Pestilence all over the land
People dying and there's no end
Screams and laughter fill the air
The undertaker is everywhere
He's celebrating his bloody meal
If there's no money there's no deal

Chorus:
Cause he's the king
King Pest
Be my guest
King - King Pest
He takes the rest
King - King Pest
The unknown guest
King - King Pest
He takes the best

Big black shape with a skinless smile
A pale white skull waiting for the time
Despairing screams echoe through the night
Disciples of fear calling for the fight
Between life and death no chance to choose
Try to pay the bill but you will loose
He collects the victims for the open hell
The king of destruction with his mortal bell

Chorus:
Cause he's the king
King Pest
Be my guest
King - King Pest
He takes the rest
King - King Pest
The unknown guest
King - King Pest
He takes the best
 
 
Sacred Fire
My heart is pounding, full moon is rising
My brain is crying, my eyes are staring
I know what will happen to my soul
Insanity will taken control

Chorus:
Sacred fire
Burning higher
Sacred fire
Is my desire

I feel the hunger, I feel the pain
I lick the blood, that's running through your veins
I bite your heart and lead you to death
Only the sacred fire can save your breath

Chorus:
Sacred fire
Burning higher
Sacred fire
Is my desire
 
 
Funeral Procession
Welcome to the other side
There's no place where you can hide
Where demons rule with endless power
There you will spend your last hour
Unfortunately you are not in heaven
And your sins are unforgiven
You sold your soul and lived a lie
Don't ask me why you have to die

Step into the fire
You bloody liar

Chorus:
Follow your obsession
Get your funeral procession
Follow your obsession
Watch your funeral procession

Welcome to the other side
Where shadows live without pride
The fruit of poison takes control
And the mortals take it's toll
Blood stops running through your veins
And the death takes away your pain
On a bed of roses you're lying there
Motionless with this evil stare

Step into the fire
You bloody liar

Chorus:
Follow your obsession
Get your funeral procession
Follow your obsession
Watch your funeral procession

The enemies inside your head
Now they're gone or now they're dead
They're put your body to lie in state
And now you know this is your fate

Step into the fire
You bloody liar

Chorus:
Follow your obsession
Get your funeral procession
Follow your obsession
Watch your funeral procession
 
 
Haunted Palace
In the greenest of the valleys
Once a fair and stately palace
But when the night had thrown her pall
The deadly clouds awaken them all

On a black throne reigns upright
A faceless skull the kingdom of the night
Evil things no human kind
Heartless spirits cold and blind

Chorus:
Deadly ghosts in robes of sorrow
Deadly shadows in the morrow
Dancing round the home of glory
Enchanted by the melody
Haunted Palace
Haunted Palace

Hear the tolling of the bells
And the pain of the dead swells
Hear their voices screaming for life
Wanderer be careful cause they want your wife

Chorus:
Deadly ghosts in robes of sorrow
Deadly shadows in the morrow
Dancing round the home of glory
Enchanted by the melody
Haunted Palace
Haunted Palace
 
 
Silence
You are lying there, I hear no silent cry
A nameless spirit under the cloudy sky
You've left my life and you left my heart
I feel endless days of present and past

Eagles fly into the night
And the world seems to die
Please come back into my life
I need you warming light

Chorus:
I open the grave
And close your eyes
I touch your face
Where your spirit lies
Feel the silence
Feel the silence

Why have you left me - my beautiful one
I can't accept it that you have gone
I kiss your lips, your face, your golden hair
I'll see you in heaven, I will meet you there

Eagles fly into the night
And the world seems to die
Please come back into my life
I need you warming light

Chorus:
I open the grave
And close your eyes
I touch your face
Where your spirit lies
Feel the silence
Feel the silence
 
 
Black Cat
 
 
Starlight
(by Accept)
Know the bright lights of Hollywood
Movietowns, a phony world
Seen a few nights of wonder,
Seen a few nights of hell

Walkin' down the foggy streets of London-town
Now I know it well
Ev'ry light in the world is nothing
To the light we know so well

Starlight, shining bright, starlight

Had a bit of life in high society
The slums have seen me, too
And the rich and poor would wonder,
At somethin' old and new

See it ev'ry night goin' slowly 'round
Can't you see it's true
Out there ev'ry man is equal
Way out there in the blue

Starlight, shining bright, starlight

Take it all the way all night long
Twinkle on, you stars
I feel my brain is blinded,
I wonder what you are

Starlight, shining bright, starlight

Starlight...
 
 
Running Free
(by Iron Maiden.)
O. K.
I'm just 16, stayed out of trouble
Out of money, out of love
I got nowhere to call my own
Hit the gas and here I go

I'm running free yeah
I'm running free
I'm running free yeah
I'm running free
(Get out my way) (Play it)

I've spent the night in every jail
And listened to the sirens wail
But they ain't got a thing on me
I'm running wild, I'm running free

I'm running free yeah
I'm running free

Pulled her at the Bottle Top
The whiskey dancing disco hop
Now all the boys are after me
That's the way it's gonna be

I'm running free yeah
I'm running free
I'm running free yeah
I'm running free
