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...
 
 
"LOA" House
1932, North of Baton Rouge
Louisiana nights are darker than before
Along the Mississippi, that is where it is
The old colonial house, a mansion of you will

Whaite as snow, the mansion still seems to have its slow

And when the moon is full and white
You can hear the drums of voodoo echo in the night

In the "LOA" house, misery will strike again

Jean le Noir, the first to own this house
He was a voodoo priest, a Houngan so they say
The voodoo cemetery, that is where he is
Died at the hand of an evil Bocor's will

They say... he's been walking the house  ever since that day

And when the moon is fool and white
You can hear the drums of voodoo echo in the night

In the "LOA" house, misery will strike again

*  solo Andy-Herb

They never should have come, no no no
They never should have come to the "LOA" house
They never should have come, no no no
They never should have come to the "LOA"

7 days ago... the Lafayettes moved in
Sarah is with child and Davis is the man
This is no Abigail, this child will survive
And Grandfather dear, why did they bring him here?

White as snow, that is all he sees, oh he's been blind for years

*  solo Andy

They never should have come, no no no
They never should have come to the "LOA" house
They never should have come, no no no
They never should have come to the "LOA"

And when the moon is fool and white
You can hear the drums of voodoo echo in the night

In the "LOA" house, misery will strike again
In the "LOA" house, misery will strike again

And again... and again... and again... and again...
 
 
Black Hill Sanitarium
I have been in here for way too long
And as I walk the halls at night
I see the other inmates hiding from my eyes

This is for the mentally ill
For those who have lost the will

I have seen the sickness of all mankind
And as I walk the halls at night
I see the other inmates hiding from my eyes

This is for the mentally ill
For those who have lost the will

Black Hill Sanitarium... They're driving me crazy
Black Hill Sanitarium... They're driving me crazy here

Gotta get out of here... Gotta erase the fear
Gotta get out of here... No more silent tears
Gotta get out of here... No more silent tears

Solo: Herb

Black Hill Sanitarium... They're driving me crazy

Solo: Andy

I am going down, deep into the black of my mind
I've had enough
Therapy in little rooms, I'm lying down in my cocoon
Nothing here could end too soon, I'm lying down
Oh God, I hate those men in white

Oh, those men in white, sticking needles in my mind

And as I walk the halls at night
I see the other inmates hiding from my eyes

This is for the mentally ill
For those who have lost the will

Black Hill Sanitarium... They're driving me crazy
Black Hill Sanitarium... They're driving me crazy here

Gotta get out of here... Gotta erase the fear
Gotta get out of here... No more silent tears
 
 
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 !!!
 
 
Voodoo
Saturday evening

A narrow path runs along the river
From the burial ground you might see it
Leading to a temple of secrets
Where they meet once a week... to dance and feast

Lula is dancing to the voodoo drums
Twisting, turning, round and round

She is ready to receive the LOA
She is ready for the God
This one is Damballah

Voodoo, voodoo, voodoo
Voodoo, voodoo, voodoo
Total emptiness  inside
As Damballah gets ready for her ride

Casting out from Lula's head
One of two souls that seems to be dead
Traveling deep in a trance
Lula's legs are getting weak
"The LOA has seized its horse" ...sssssss

*  solo Dime

Lula is not the one that's speaking now
Lula is not the one that's lying now

Drink, drink girl, drink the chicken's blood
Drink, drink girl, drink and feed the God

If this is all you think they do, oh you better think again
Cause there is so much more to voodoo, oh than meets the eye

Voodoo, voodoo, voodoo
Voodoo, voodoo, voodoo

Human hair on waxen dools, pins through their knees
Pins through their little heads, and through their bellics
Ahh they're coming to get you, they're coming for you
Ahh they're coming to get you, they're coming for you now

*  solo Andy

Voodoo, voodoo, voodoo
Voodoo, voodoo, voodoo... Voodoo...
