From the Other Side
I don't know if I'm dead or alive
All I know is I'm running out of time
Oh, I'm leaving my body... Oh, leaving it behind

From the other side, looking down I know that it's me
From the other side, looking down It's the devil I see

Someone down there is saving my life
I see a tear being shed by THE EYE
Oh, drifting much higher... Oh, Into the light

From the other side, looking down I know that it's me
From the other side, looking down It's the devil I see

Solo: La Rocque

I see the strangest faces
Faces that I've never seen before
They see through empty spaces
Spaces that do not exist no more

I swear by the moon and the devil
I'll be their guardian if they will be mine

There's a demon with red glowing eyes
He's invading the body that was mine
Oh, Is there still time... Oh, Time to return

From the other side, looking down I know that it's me
From the other side, looking down it's the devil I see

I guess I wasn't ready yet
'Cause someone there is calling me back from the dead

Demon, demon, are you there
Demon, demon, leave my lair

Solo: La Rocque

From the other side, looking down I know that it's me
From the other side, looking down it's the devil I see
WAKE UP !!!
 
 
Killer
At midnight, an hour from now... they're gonna flick the switch
Down the Hall, beyond the iron door... they're gonna end my life
I will see you all in Hell, isn't that where we all must go?
I will not, tell you want I did... It doesn't matter now
I will tell, how weird it is, to know exactly when you're gonna go

I am a killer... I'm gonna get what I deserve
I am a killer, they're gonna fry my each and every nerve

It is not, the soul I sell, it's not the pain from hell
It is not, the feel of dying, of that I was never afraid

I will see you all in Hell, isn't that where we all must go?
Gazing at the iron door, while time is slipping away
What's really driving me insane
Is what to do with my final hour

I am a killer... I'm gonna get what I deserve
I am a killer, They're gonna fry my each and every nerve
I've got less than an hour to kill
I'm looking back at the life I've had to live
What a waste... what a mess...
I should have never been born...

Solo: Simonsen

I hear them, coming down the hall, I know they're coming for me
I don't need that silly Priest, Oh just get on with the show

I am a killer... I'm gonna get what I deserve
I am a killer, They're gonna fry my each and every nerve
 
 
The Poltergeist
Some would say there is trouble in my home
Even when I am alone
Some would say there is always someone home
Even though I might be gone

Speak to be my friend, I know you're there
Speak to be my friend... speak to me... SPEAK TO ME!

I can always feel it's there, creeping one step behind me
Cold hands in the night, I know that it's watching me

The Poltergeist living in my home
Could be a friend or a foe
The Poltergeist living in my home
Could be a friend for life or a foe until the night I die

Speak to me my friend, let me hear your tongue
I don't like most of those you invite... Get them out, GET THEM OUT!

Solos: Simonsen - La Rocque

Speak to me my friend, I know you're there
Speak to me my friend, speak to me... SPEAK TO ME!

My guests can never tell, when it's creeping up to touch them
They will never ever know our game
Until they feel it and scream

The Poltergeist living in my home
Could be a friend of a foe
The Poltergeist living in my home
Could be a friend for life or a foe until the night I die

Speak to me my friend, we are one and the same
Now that you're living here... Welcome home... Welcome home
You can stay forever
 
 
Dreams
Solo: La Rocque

The witching hour has arrived here too soon
I know that all my dreams are inside this room
Oh... yeah, it's all in this tune

Dreams in the night, falling like rain
Dreams in the night, they drive me insane

They cannot wait until I turn off the light
When I'm asleep they've got the key to my mind
Oh... yeah, can't leave them behind

Dreams in the night, falling like rain
Dreams in the night, they drive me insane
Dreams in the night

Solo: Simonsen

Yeah, yeah, give me another dream now

The spider's lullabye is all they can sing
As they inject their poison into my brain
Oh... yeah, they're calling my name

Dreams in the night, falling like rain
Dreams in the night, they drive me insane

Give me another dream now
Yeah, yeah, yeah, give me another dream now

Rainbows and waterfalls
Little girls are swimming in a pond of gold
I'm growing old
I'm growing old
Sweet blue eyes of innocence
Begging me...
To follow them to the other side
Ah.. they're growing horns!!!

Solo: La Rocque

Dreams in the night, falling like rain
Dreams in the night, they drive me insane
Dreams in the night

Let me out of these dreams... dreams... dreams
Let me out of these dreams... dreams... dreams
Let me out of these dreams... dreams... dreams
 
 
Moonlight
In the moonlight
I see children searching for their souls
In the moonlight, can you hear them howling on the wind
Night after night, I see them passing by
They whisper in my ear, We know you are there
I see no eyes, I guess they must be blind
Wish that I could lead them to a better world than mine

Solo: La Rocque

In the moonlight, not a bird is singing lullabyes
In the moonlight, I hear a church bell ring its evil song

Night after night, I see them passing by
They whisper in my ear, We know you are there
I see no eyes, I guess they must be blind
Wish that I could lead them to a better world than mine

In the moonlight... In the moonlight...

Solos: Simonsen - La Rocque

Night after night, I see them passing by
Wish that I could lead them to a better world than mine

In the moonlight
I see children searching for their souls
In the moonlight
I hear screams of pain from a thousand years ago

Raven spread your wings, lead the spirits to their home
Raven spread your wings, lead the spirits to their home

In the moonlight... In the moonlight...
 
 
Six Feet Under
My family just couldn't wait, I should have seen it coming
What a nice conspiracy, what a nice surprise
But now it's all too late
I am six feet under, It's so very hard to breathe
My family they put me here, in a coffin made of glass
So I can see them in their glory or they can see me in my misery
They're standing all around my grave

Six feet under, I'm in a coffin made of glass
Six feet under, It's so very hard to breathe

Solo: La Rocque

Six feet under, I'm in a coffin made of glass
Six feet under, It's so very hard to breathe
My hands are turning blue while my nails are turning to Red

Solo: Simonsen

Looking up into faces of greed
I'm sweating cold and white with fear
Sinister smiles... upon their lips
One of them is waving me goodbye
I am six feet under, It's so very hard to breathe
My lovely sister is laughing at me, I cannot hear but I can see
Now she is kicking soil into my face
I swear I will return to haunt her

Six feet under, I'm in a coffin made of glass
Six feet under, It's so very hard to breathe
My face is turning blue while my eyes are turning to Red
 
 
The Spider's Lullabye
In a little cottage, in the country side
Lives a man called Harry, and he is losing his mind

Listen... Hear the spider's lullabye

It's really sad for Harry, he finds a spider scary
Even the smallest species, will make him feel uneasy
Oh, they live in every corner
Oh, and here comes the summer

There's another spider on his wall... Gotta kill it!
Soon to be another creamy spot

As he woke up this morning, there was a spider crawling
He felt the big surprise, before it caught his eyes
Oh, in between his face
Oh, and his pillow case

There's another spider on his wall... Gotta kill it!
Soon to be another creamy spot

Here comes another one... Ha... Ha... Ha... Ha... Ha

He's got to find a doctor, a very special doctor
Someone who can cure his mind
Someone who knows Harry's kind

Listen... Hear the spider's lullabye

Those creepy crawly screatures
With all their hairy features
Hoping to catch a fly
Singing its deadly lullabye

Oh... oh, NO...

There's another spider on his wall... Gotta kill it!!!
 
 
Eastmann's Cure
It was in the local paper: We will cure you every phobia
At Devil Lake Sanitarium
We will make you feel you're right at home

No more sleepless nights, no more unpleasant sights
We can recreate paradise
And you don't even have to sacrifice a thing

It only took about a minute's time
For poor old Harry to make up his mind
So he headed for Devil Lake, knowing doctors
were awaiting him

No more sleepless nights, no more unpleasant sights
We can recreate paradise
And you don't even have to sacrifice a thing

Solos: La Rocque - Simonsen

Harry: "... My name is Harry and I am from the country side
I'm looking for a doctor, Eastmann is the name"

Dr. Eastmann: "We welcome you with open arms
We've all been looking forward to having you here
At Devil Lake Sanitarium
You must always sign a special paper first"

Harry: "I will sign anything, just to get rid of my fears
I just want to live a life, where do you want me to sign?"

Dr. Eastmann: "Right here on the dotted line
This will give me all the freedom I need for you
At Devil Lake Sanitarium
You know we are the very best at what we do... Oh Yes!"

Solo: La Rocque

Now that we have got his signature
I think it's time to start the Eastmann cure
So put him in the straight
I think room 17 is still our whitest room

No more sleepless nights, no more unpleasant sights
We can recreate paradise
And you don't even have to sacrifice a thing
 
 
Room 17
Room 17 was nice and cool, oh yeah
A few stains on the wall
But that was nothing new to Harry's head
Even though he was strapped down to his bed, strapped down
Harry felt pretty good...
Knock, knock... knock, knock, Is anybody there

Room 17 was nice and cool, oh yeah
But it didn't have the string
That would ring the nurse, it wasn't there
Poor Harry, he had it coming, Poor Harry
Now he didn't feel so good...

Solo: Simonsen

Here comes Doctor Eastmann and Nursie Needle Dear
Look at what they got you... The CRAWLY BOX

Nurse Needle: "Don't be such a baby, Harry stop that now
The doctor's here to help you... it's Eastmann time"

In room 17, everything is so clean
In room 17, there is nothing to be seen

Dr. Eastmann: "Black, brown, grey and hairy... we've got them all
Big, small, fast and scary... yeah we've got them all
I can hear it, the Spider's Lullabye
I can feel it, the Spiders crawl on by"

In room 17, everything is so clean
In room 17, there is nothing to be seen

Dr. Eastmann: "Nurse Needle it is time to begin...
Nurse Needle, stick it in
A brown Lycosa's what I've got inside this box
I'm gonna let him out to see just how you feel, when he's around
If you move too much he might just bite you
But we'll just have to wait and see about that... ?"

Solo: La Rocque

Deep into the night, they were testing him
So many different species, Harry could not win

Solo: Simonsen

They forgot a grey one, she was full of eggs
And she would find the warm spot, back in Harry's neck
It's so moist and warm in here
Knock, knock... knock, knock, Is anybody there

Harry: "You forgot some spiders in my room, yesterday
Now I've got this stunning pain
And my neck is feeling weird, Oh I might die
Overnight some of your spiders must have bit me
They were all over me"

Dr. Eastmann: "Oh Harry, don't be such a fool"

That same night Harry died
When they found him he was grey and white

Solo: La Rocque

Black, brown, grey and hairy... we've got them all
Big, small, fast and scary... yeah we've got them all
I can hear it, the Spider's Lullabye
I can feel it, the Spiders crawl on by

In room 17, everything it so clean
In room 17, there is nothing to be seen

Solo: Simonsen

In room 17, everything is so clean
In room 17, there is nothing to be seen

Take him to the morgue, Take him to the morgue
 
 
To the Morgue
To the morgue... Take him to the morgue
To the morgue... Take him to the morgue

At... Devil Lake... Sanitarium, many a patient had died in vain
Never a question to be asked, no no, never a thing to explain
So they took his bones and skin to the morgue in the West Wing
It was clear... to Doctor Eastmann
Harry had died of fright in the night
If he had cared he could have found the spider
Laying eggs in Harry's neck

The smoldering eyes... in Harry's head
Had become the home... of spiders instead

Solos: Simonsen - La Rocque

To the morgue... Take him to the morgue
To the morgue... Take him to the morgue
To the morgue... We must all go to the morgue
To the morgue... We must all go to the morgue

Deep down... below the ground
Where it was king of cold and damp
Too many stiffs to be fit in the cooler
Gathering dust in the Hallways of Death

The smoldering eyes... in Harry's head
Had become the home... of spiders instead

Spiders here ... Spiders everywhere
Spiders feeding the dead to their young
Spiders here... Spiders everywhere
Spiders using the dead for their name

Spiders... They're growing like rats from the plague
Spiders... There's so many more everyday

Solos: Simonsen - La Rocque

Summer is coming to an end
And the cellar in the morgue is a nest now
One thousand poisonous creatures
Eight thousand poisonous legs

The smoldering eyes... in Harry's head
Had become the home... of spiders instead

To the morgue.. We must all go to the morgue...To the morgue... Take him to the morgue
To the morgue... Take him to the morgue

At... Devil Lake... Sanitarium, many a patient had died in vain
Never a question to be asked, no no, never a thing to explain
So they took his bones and skin to the morgue in the West Wing
It was clear... to Doctor Eastmann
Harry had died of fright in the night
If he had cared he could have found the spider
Laying eggs in Harry's neck

The smoldering eyes... in Harry's head
Had become the home... of spiders instead

Solos: Simonsen - La Rocque

To the morgue... Take him to the morgue
To the morgue... Take him to the morgue
To the morgue... We must all go to the morgue
To the morgue... We must all go to the morgue

Deep down... below the ground
Where it was king of cold and damp
Too many stiffs to be fit in the cooler
Gathering dust in the Hallways of Death

The smoldering eyes... in Harry's head
Had become the home... of spiders instead

Spiders here ... Spiders everywhere
Spiders feeding the dead to their young
Spiders here... Spiders everywhere
Spiders using the dead for their name

Spiders... They're growing like rats from the plague
Spiders... There's so many more everyday

Solos: Simonsen - La Rocque

Summer is coming to an end
And the cellar in the morgue is a nest now
One thousand poisonous creatures
Eight thousand poisonous legs

The smoldering eyes... in Harry's head
Had become the home... of spiders instead

To the morgue.. We must all go to the morgue...
