Eye of the Witch
It's so cold inside on this summer night
Black clouds in the sky dancing before my eyes
I'm losing track of time

It's the eye of the witch
It's the eye of the witch

Thunder bring the rain, penetrate my brain
I am no more the same, that special night has come
Losing track of time

It's the eye of the witch
The eye... the eye... the eye

Solos: Andi - Pete

Another glass of wine to heat blood mine
And as I look inside the necklace called 'The Eye'
I'm going back in time

It's the eye of the witch
It's the eye of the witch
The eye... the eye... the eye

Solo: Andi
 
 
The Trial (Chambre Ardante)
La Reymie:
"Jeanne D'basson, You stand accused before the burning court
For practising witchcraft. Do you confess? We have ways
To make You talk How do You plead?"

Jeanne:
"I never did any harm to anyone. I don't believe this"

La Reymie:
"Lead the witch to the dungeon for the test...
Bring out the glowing pins. Do it now!"

Solo: Pete

This is rotten to the core
Jeanne is naked on the floor
In the dungeon, they want more

La Reymie:
"Oh Jeanne, you feel so good"

La Reymie is touching her body
Wringled fingers all over her

La Reymie:
"So this is how You make with the devil
We're gonna get You, witchy woman
We will never believe in You
So you better repent Your sins now"

Sticking need'es into her skin yeah
In the dungeon blood is everywhere
Clowing need'es, need'es and pins yeah
She's getting weaker, no more pain to feel

La Reymie:
"We will never believe in You
So you better repent Your sins now"

"We are the servants of GOD, we believe in the devil
And we've found his mark on You, confess witch"

"Thoushalt not suffer a witch to live
Who soever lieth with a beast shall surely be put the death"

Jeanne:
"Never did I lie with any beast of thine
Dogs or cats or goats, now leave My soul alone"

La Reymie:
"He that sacrificeth unto any god save the lord only
He shall be utterly destroyed"

Jeanne:
"Now I hear, deceiving, lying tongues
Never have I done no harm to anyone"

Solo: Pete

But they dis not turn her loose
Horns and tails and cloven hoof
Can You tell Me where's the proof
 
 
Burn
The inquisition will take her to the hill
Ready for the kill, giving GOD his will
Everybody's there, none of them will care
Not a single prayer

Burn in the night, You're the devil's child
Burn in the night, You're the devil's child

Looking at the sky, soon the girl will die
Nobody will cry, hear her screaming "why?"
The priests are all in line, now they give the sign
Let the fire shine

Burn in the night, You're the devil's child
Burn in the night, You're the devil's child

They say the devil is here tonight
Then let him play his violin so wild

Higher, burning higher, flames will soon devour
Higher, burning higher, the smell of skin turned sour

Solo: Andi

Higher, burning higher, her lefs are scorched by life
Ashes to ashes, I see a smile on their wicked faces

Solo: Pete

Burn in the night, You're the devil's child
Burn in the night, You're the devil's child

Solo: Andi

Lightning from the sky, magic's coming by
As her necklace flies height into her eye
The priests are all in line, now they give the sign
Let the fire die

Burned in the night, there are no remains
Burned in the night, just a magic chain
 
 
Two Little Girls
One little girl with dirty fingers
Playing with broken doll
As the other girl is lying
Digging deep into the ground
They seem to play an evil game
A game that doesn't have a name
Both of them are in the ashes
At the stake where witches burn

If only they could see beyond the ground they play on
The girls are laughing still, they think they're having fun
They should be far away, watching the sun go down

One little girl picked up a necklace
From the ashes of the witches
It had wings and then the other
Cried out loud "Now let me have it"
The other looked without a sign
Right into the witche's eye
The kind of horror that she saw
Made her choke for evermore

I wish they could have seen beyond the ground they played on
They would be laughing still, having the best of fun
They would be far away watching the sun go down
 
 
Into the Convent
Madeleine is running away from herself
Afraid of shame, she's crying out for help
To be clean again

Solo: Andi

No one cared and no one ever will
Her feelings were not shared, she wants to break the spell
And she's going

Into the convent, a smile on her face
Into the darkness to hide all her sins
Wondering what could go wrong in this place

Father David:
"Wellcome Sister, I'm Your chaplain
Down on Your knees and pray if You please
In This convent I'm Your master
Kiss My cross now dearest Sister
In the Name of..."

Solo: Andi

Madeleine is running away from herself
As father David said: "At comminion You must be undressed"
Why did she go

Into the convent, a smile on her face
Into the darkness to hide all her sins
Wondering what could go wrong in this place

Solo: Andi

Father David:
"Come along Sister Madeleine
Unfold Your wildest dreams, it's time to join and sing
Let the feast begin"

That night she awoke to find "The Eye"
On the stone cold floor Why, She never ever would knoe why
But she put it on

Solo: Pete

Next day father David passed away
At communion time
Why, he never ever would know why
But he looked at "The Eye"

The eye of the necklace is laking it's toll
Inside the convent a soul will rejoice
 
 
Father Picard
A new chaplain has arrived
Madeleine and a few other nuns
At the convent will meet him tonight

Father Picard:
"Wellcome to my quarters, do come inside
Wellcome dearest Sisters, come into the light"
"I'm Father Picard, I'm taking over
Things will be different here
You are the four GOD has chosen
To be his angels in white
Drink My sweet holy wine"

"Oh yeah come on it's not a crime
From now on every sunday this time
You will attend this communion of mine"

Father Picard is hiding something
A white powder for the wine

Solo: Andi

Father Picard:
"I'm Father Picard, I'm taking over
Things will be different here
You are the four GOD has chosen
To be his angels in white
Drink My sweet holy wine"

Solo: Pete

The nuns freak out, lust in their eyes
From now on every sunday this time
Father Picard's in control of their minds

Father Picard is hiding something
A white powder for the wine
 
 
Behind These Walls
Walking in the garden, picking flowers in the sun
Madeleine is on her own
She can't see any of the other nuns
Is she blind or is it her mind
What's going on? What's going on behind these walls...

All the birds are singing, but Madeleine can't hear their song
Memories of screams in the night
Moaning coming from below where the prison cells are cold
She does not understand what's going on

Solos: Andi - Pete

Now the bell is ringing, communion time has come again
Is Father Picard really a friend?
...
The sour tasting blood of Christ
What's going on? What's going on behind these walls...

Solo: Andi

What's going on? Behind these walls...
 
 
The Meetings
The night is black
7 figures walk the streets of Louviers
Picard is one, another two are priests
And then the nuns going to

The meetings held in secrecy
Evil company full of secrecy, again and again

The room is dark
Candies on the wall, they've been here before
The christian cross is hanging high above
The altar of GOD

Solo: Pete

Madeleine is at the gate
Hazy feeling in her brain
As the strangers come in to

The meetings held in secrecy
Evil company full of secrecy, again and again

The strangers brought
The sweetest little child, but something's wrong
The baby cries, someone here will die
And now the nuns pray

The meetings held in secrecy
Evil company full of secrecy, again and again

Madeleine and the other nuns
They hold the infant up to the cross
As father Picard and the priests
Approach with hammers and nails
There's no more to tell
 
 
Insanity
(Acoustic - Pete, Electric - Andi)
(Instrumental)
 
 
1642 Imprisonment
Sacrifice, holy rites, secrecy and alter wine
Black candies burning lowto the meetings agains they go
Picard can't wait to take away another soul
Oh it's a shame, Picard was so insane

In the year of 1642, it came to an end
In 1642, imprisonment

Sacrifice, holy rites, secrecy and alter wine
Black death come this way, Father Picard will soon be going
He's ill, so sick, now his meetings are forever over
Oh it's a shame, they went along with his game

In the year of 1642, it came to an end
In 1642, imprisonment

Solo: Andi

Sacrifice, holy rites, secrecy and alter wine
The nuns can't take her blame
One after one they suffer a breakdown
Confession, confession, they confess to diabolic possession
Oh it's shame, even Madeleine has gone insane

In the year of 1642, Madeline was leaving hell in 1642, she
Found freedom in her prison cell

Solo: Pete
 
 
The Curse
I know what You're thinking. I can see through you brain
I know what You're doing, even though I'm far away

The power I get from the chain is mine
Only I can use it
The power I get from the chain is mine
Only I can use it

It was only yesterday, thunder rolling by, breaking up the sky
And the rain was pouring down
Pounding on my brain, driving me insane
I was drinking wine again, oh yeah blame it on the wine

The curse of "The Eye", it will take you back in time
If you look at "The Eye", it will take you back in time

Solo: Andi

The curse of "The Eye", it will take you back in time
If you look at "The Eye", it will take you back in time

I know what You're thinking. I can see through you brain
I know what You're doing, even though I'm far away

Solo: Pete

I know there's a bad side to the power of the chain
I know I'll be going back in time once again

Solo: Pete

It was only the 1st of May, thunder rolling by, breaking up the sky
And the rain was pouring down
The inqusition came, I felt the pain
I had to relieve it all in just one day

The curse of "The Eye", it will take you back in time
If you look at "The Eye", it will take you back in time

Solo: Pete

The power I get from the chain is mine
Only I can use it
