Burning the Cross
Riding out and summed up for they know their destination
Demons and witches and leaving less perceptions
Breaking religion by burning the cross
Breaking religion, burning the cross

Travelling in darkness, afraid of recognition
Evil ambitions, they're planning the destruction
Breaking religion by burning the cross
Breaking religion, burning the cross

Oh you gotta see them riding through the darkness
And stay in the night
Unholy light
You gotta see them riding through the darkness
And stay in the night
Unholy light
You gotta see them riding through the darkness
And stay in the night

Riding out and summed up for they know their destination
Demons and witches and leaving less perceptions
Breaking religion by burning the cross
Breaking religion, burning the cross

Oh yeah they're burning the cross
Hear what they say, cause they do not go home
Oh you gotta see them riding through the darkness
And stay in the night
Unholy light
You gotta see them riding through the darkness
And stay in the night
Unholy light
You gotta see them riding through the darkness
And stay in the night

Doomsday reflections
Above the clouds high in the sky
Doomsday infections
In their heads and in their minds
Doomsday reflections
Above the clouds high in the sky
Doomsday infections
In their heads and in their minds

You'll be burning the cross
 
 
Curse of the Pharaohs
Way out in Egypt in the valley of kings
Where mummified pharaohs
Pretend dead in their sleep

Don't touch, never ever steal
Unless you're in for the kill
Or you'll be hit by the curse of the pharaohs
Yes you'll be hit and the curse is on you

Now if you're breakin' the seals
And disturbing the peace
Then you're startin' up a curse
Bringin' evil disease

Don't touch, never ever steal
Unless you're in for the kill
Or you'll be hit by the curse of the pharaohs
Yes you'll be hit and the curse is on you

I'll be your pharaoh
The curse of the pharaohs can be so deadly
Or just destroying your future
Makin' it all shady

Don't touch, never ever steal
Unless you're in for the kill
Or you'll be hit by the curse of the pharaohs
Yes you'll be hit and the curse is on you
 
 
Return of the Vampire
And so I saw it
The birth of a vampire
Fresh in his lair
Spreading the veil
He'll spread his wings
Leaving at sunset
Fly high and low
Back before sun's glow

Return of the vampire
Leaving his liar
Sucking your blood through your veins
Return of the vampire
Leaving his liar
Sucking your blood through your veins

There's only one way you can stop him
You gotta trace the vampire to his liar, oh yeah
And then you gotta drive the stake
Right through the heart of the living dead, oh yeah

Oh I can feel you living again
Vampire I'm losing control
Vampire just give me your cloak
Vampire I'm losing control
Vampire just give me your cloak
 
 
On a Night of Full Moon
Stay away
I am evil
Or you will die by tomorrow
Copulation with a body of woman recently dead
My ceremonies with all the corpses
Finding souls so to unlock the coffins
It's a desecration of souls in their holy lair

Magic circles drawn after midnight
Around graves to be opened
I'll use a wand and bodies rise
I'll ask the questions and I'll burn the remains
It's a desecration of souls in their holy lair

Oh this sacrifice I've been searching on the night of full moon
Copulation with a body of woman recently dead
My ceremonies with all the corpses
Finding souls so to unlock the coffins
It's a desecration of souls in their holy lair
Oh this sacrifice I've been searching on the night of full moon
 
 
A Corpse Without Soul
Listen, I'm a corpse, I'm a corpse
I'm a corpse without soul
Satan, he's taken, he's taken
He taken his toll
Listen, I'm a corpse, I'm a corpse
I'm a corpse without soul
Satan , he's taken, he's taken
He's taken his toll

I was walking down among the graves
I heard a cry, my shadow is gone
Emptiness in my body, life in the cold
Small black wings on my naked back
Now guess what I saw on one of those stones
I saw my soul in a magical haze
It was all dressed up as corpse in a wedding dress

Small black wings on my naked back
Now hear my prayer, begging for mercy
I'm just living to die
I was walking down among the graves
I heard a cry my shadow is gone
Emptiness in my body, life in the cold

Small black wings on my naked back
Now guess what I saw on one of those stones
I saw my soul, in a magical haze
It was all dressed up as a corpse in a wedding dress

Small black wings on my naked back
Listen, I'm a corpse, I'm a corpse
I'm a corpse without soul
Satan, he's taken, he's taken
He's taken his toll
Listen, I'm a corpse, I'm a corpse
I'm a corpse without soul
Satan, he's taken, he's taken
He's taken his toll
 
 
Death Kiss
Dark lady coming out at night
Still glory
Let's those legs on fire
She's going to take away your life
And there's a mess beyond the killing fields
A shock
Bells ringing from the city tower
It's a woman
People running
Girl haunted
Death kiss walking down the long road
And now she's big enough
The world is gonna die
The time it slips away
You can't stop oh no
She may give us death kiss
She may give us a kiss
Everything is turned upside down
There's a child there divine
Dark lady taking care again, yeah
Now she's walking back to hell with just her hands
The time it slips away
You can't stop oh no
It's death kiss
Ah a little child
Ah she's gonna die
The child has lost its way
The child is dead
Oh oh oh she's dead
 
 
Leave My Soul Alone
Oh... yeah!!! Oh yeah!
Now hear my song
Sirenes calling, people leavin' the streets
The cops are comin', I don't know what I did

Why don't you get away, leavin' my soul alone
Maybe another day, you get a reason too
Why don't you get away, leavin' my soul alone
Maybe another day, you get a reason too

Oh... yeah!!! Oh yeah! Oh hear me now
I'm running free, they won't get me alive
No one can see, I did it to survive

Why don't you get away, leavin' my soul alone
Maybe another day, you get a reason too
Why don't you get away, leavin' my soul alone
Maybe another day, you get a reason too

Oh... yeah!!! Oh yeah!
This is what I did
I killed a friend, for makin' love to my girl
This is the end, a bullet from my gun

Why don't you get away, leavin' my soul alone
Maybe another day, you get a reason too
Why don't you get away, leavin' my soul alone
Maybe another day, you get a reason too

I can't belong...
 
 
Mission - Destroy Aliens (M.D.A.)
Satan's veil, the night so red
Another creature sighted
The night's alright, The music's loud
The feeling is so right

Mission: Destroy Aliens
Mission: Destroy Aliens
Mission: Destroy Aliens
Mission: Destroy

Someone wishes, dare to learn
And understand the chance
About his lair, the king has spoke
To be in there with him

Mission: Destroy Aliens
Mission: Destroy Aliens
Mission: Destroy Aliens
Mission: Destroy

Later on, the cauldron's burning
Take away their breath
You can't resist my evil touch
Nature fights their bearing

Mission: Destroy Aliens
Mission: Destroy Aliens
Mission: Destroy Aliens
Mission: Destroy
 
 
You Asked for It
Oh, I'll tell you everything I do
We're going to talk at the moon
You've said enough, too easily gave up
I'll smash you, you'll look like a stranger
You're young and scared
No one hears, no one cares
Shout out with your gun
It's time to surrender
You still will be burned
You're sick and tender

You asked for it, every time in prayer
I'll smash you, you'll look just like a stranger
Oh what a love to be young and scared
No one hears, no one gives a damn
Oh you asked for it, you won't get no mercy
Oh little girl your pain is now
Oh little girl you're about to be burned
Oh little girl come and meet the devil
Oh I'll tell you everything I do
We're going to talk at the moon

You asked for it, every time in prayer
I'll smash you, you'll look just like a stranger
No one hears
No one gives
A damn
Oh you asked for it, you won't get no mercy

Lyrics of Burning The Cross are sent by Kim Sandrehav. (diabola@geocities.com).
Other lyrics were changed according to Kim Sandrehav's advice.
The lyrics are not official, so they may contain some mistakes, that's what Kim wrote about them: "I've tried my best to decrypt the lyrics on some MF-songs (the ones missing), I think I've managed to finish almost the most of this one: Some parts are not humanly possible to hear so I've guessed (see the brackets)." Really great thanx for the good job.

Lyrics of "Leave My Soul Alone" are sent by David Dejeneffe (mail328@rsftew.luc.ac.be).
The lyrics are not official, so they may contain some mistakes, however David is sure they are correct with the exception of the last verse, which may be wrong. Anyway, great thanks for such a great job.
