Nightmare Be Thy Name
Master... You know I nerver pray
Master... Nothing can keep you away

Chorus:
Nightmare be thy name, Nightmare be thy name

The dreams... They always do come true
Second sight, and I don't want to know

Chorus

You got to stop this game... Before I go
In-sane... You drive me insane
You would follow me straight to the grave
And beyond... Oh yes you would

Solos: Shermann - Denner

In Hell, I see the fate of others
Break the speel, this night has been on forever

Chorus

You got to stop this game... Before I go
In-sane... Before I go insane
 
 
Angel of Light
I have seen Him there
Master of Light, Master of the night
Master of all the things that shine

Chorus:
Oh I believe...
I believe in all that I have seen
And I have seen the Angel Of Light
I have seen the Angel Of Light... Lucifer

I have seen Him there
Deep down where the Devils dwell
Deep down in the darkest well

Chorus

Solo: Shermann

I will make a second deal with the Prince Of Light
Never will break the Oath I gave that night

Solo: Denner

Shine in all your glory, shine your light on me

I have seen Him there
Deep down where the Devils dwell
Deep down in the darkest well

Chorus
 
 
Witches' Dance
Just like a demon's eye
The moon was dancing on the blackened sky
In my sleep nothing is real, dreaming... I'm dreaming

I can feel the shadows lurking
I can feel them closing in
I can hear their evil chanting
This is not a dream for a king

Chorus:
Dancing the Witche's Dance... Dancing the Dance
Dancing the Witche's Dance... Dancing the Dance

Cold hands, leading the way
Through the woods and into the night
Outside nothing is real, dreaming... I'm dreaming

I can see a fire burning
Hooded shapes are all around
I can see a throne of silver
Thirteen we are in all

Chorus

Before the Goat Of Mendes... We all must take our turn
Into the magic circle... Where still the fire burns
We're spinning round and round... Until one takes a fall
The fallen one will not return, the fallen one must burn

Solo: Denner

Just like a demon's eye
The moon is dancing on the blackened sky
I'm awake but nothing is real
Dreaming... Not dreaming

I can feel the shadows lurking
I can feel them closing in
I can hear their evil chanting
This is not a dream at all

Chorus

I wish this was only a dream... A dream
Within a dream

Solos: Shermann - Denner

Dancing the Witche's Dance
Dancing till Death
 
 
The Mad Arab
Part One: The Vision

The son of a shepherd, Abdul Alhazred
Travelling in the mountains, the mountains to the east
One night before him, there stood that giant rock 3 symbols carved in blood

He built a fire at its root
To protect him from the wolves...

The Mad Arab... He would understand
The Mad Arab... It was in his hands...

Later that same night, awoken by wolfen's cry
The Arab cold with fear, saw the rock began to rise... Rise

The son of a shepherd, Abdul Alhazred
Shivering he saw Them coming, the mountain's evil priests
Black robes came together, around the floating rock 3 symbols in the dark

They all started chanting ancient songs
It was prayer in unknown tongue...

The Mad Arab... He would understand
The Mad Arab... It was in his hands

Solos: Shermann - Denner

Daggers held high to the sky
The chanting had turned to screams
From the pit where the rock had been
8 snake - like monsters came

And the priests burned in red
And the priest had turned their heads

The blood running from their chests
Had the Arab scream in horror... Giving himself away

The Mad Arab... He would understand
The Mad Arab... It was in his hands

Run down that mountain side, oh but they had seen him
The priests had caught his scent
Running faster... They're chasing him
Can't go no faster... They're still behind
Aaaah NO!!! They're closing in...

...To Be Continued...
 
 
My Demon
This house is full of hate, this house is full of madness
This house is deep insane, this house was never mine

Chorus:
Deep in the dark you will find us
DEMON and I we are both deep inside
Yes My DEMON and I we are mine

All of the deadle kisses, all of the sick, sick, sickness
All of the broken mirrors, it's here to stay forever

Chorus

Solo: Shermann

Chorus 2:
Come along... Come along, meet
My DEMON... DEMON... My DEMON... DEMON

The poison deep within, I can't let HIM out again
The dark stains on the floor, they won't come off anymore
So here we go again, digging the knife in
Who will be next? Who will be our next guest?

Solo: Denner

I hate that GOD damn cellar, I wish I never went there
It always was and will be, I cannot make it go away

Chorus 2

The poison deep within, I can't let HIM out again
The dark stains on the floor, they won't come off anymore
So here we go again, be my guest!!!
 
 
Time
Minutes and seconds are passing us by
Minutes and seconds are passing us by
Time... Time
Minutes and seconds are passing us by
Time... Time

Time... Time... Time is always passing by
Doesn't matter where you are
Time is passing us by
What a beautiful moment
If you're willing to trade
Then I'll give you a moment of mine
Give you a moment of mine

Minutes and seconds are passing us by
Minutes and seconds are passing us by
Minutes and seconds are passing us by
(Time will never stand still)
Minutes and seconds are passing us by
Minutes and seconds are passing us by
(Time will never stand still)

Time... Time... Time is always passing by
Doesn't matter where you are
Time is passing us by
What a beautiful moment
If we took it away
We could use it on some other day
Use it on some other day

Time is here, Time is now
Time is here, Time is now

Solo: Denner

Time will kill... Time will heal
Time will come and go away
But time will never stay... Time will kill

Solo: Shermann

Time will heal... Time will kill

Minutes and seconds are passing us by...
 
 
The Preacher
You believe in Heaven
You believe the Devil is here
When you ring your demon bell
You think I'll en up in Hell

Chorus:
Oh yeah you're the Preacher
You're the Devil
You're the Preacher
Hiding in the Underworld, that's you

I can't wait to see your final show
Yeah, yeah, yeah, I'm gonna miss you so

Solo: Shermann

I believe you're crying
You're not the only one
Have you ever seen the light
I bet you're scared of the night

Chorus

I can't wait to see your final show
Yeah, yeah, yeah, I'm gonna miss you so

Solos: Shermann - Denner - Shermann - Denner

Oh Yeah You're the Preacher
Yes... You're the Devil

You're in the fire
You're such a liar
If you had a soul to sell
I bet you'd end up in Hell

Chorus

I can't wait to see your final show
Yeah, yeah, yeah, I'm gonna miss you so
 
 
Lady in Black
On a magical misty morning
I was standing in the Autumn rain
Suddenly the birds fell silent
Would I ever hear them sing again...
Hear them sing again...

Without a word of warning
I saw a shadow in the Autumn rain
Just like in my nightly dreams
The Lady In Black had come again...
The Lady had come again...

Begging me to follow her into the misty rain
Begging me to follow her into the no more pain

Solos: Shermann - Denner

Her eyes were hypnotizing
Burning deep inside my brain
The Lady In Black was here now
She was here to take me far away...
Take me far away...

"Follow me to the other side"

Through the tunnel of light we travel, fading away
Through the tunnel of light we travel
We're fading away

Through the light that's shinning bright
We're fading away
Through the light that's shinning bright
We're fading away
 
 
Mirror
Solo: Shermann

The girl in the mirror, she's not really there
Only I can see her, in all her misery

Chorus:
The girl in the mirror, she's caught in a spell
The girl in the mirror, between Heaven and Hell

Can't you feel it, those haunting eyes
She's so devine, could be magic of a kind

Chorus

Solo: Denner

Take a look in the mirror
Deep inside there's a world of its own
Take a look in the mirror
See what you might find

Try to reach my hand
Try to reach through the glass... Try... Try...

'Cause the longest journey is the one on your own
If we break the mirror, do you think they'll let you go

Chorus
 
 
The Afterlife
Solo: Denner

Why am I here, in a quiet mortuary
A lady and man, flowers in their hands
Nobody sees me, I don't understand
Nobody hears me...
Seems like I don't exist
Seems like no one can hear me as I... Scream

I do not feel the way I used to be
Could it really be that the one I see is me
You gotta tell why people come but never stay
Could it really be that the one I see is me
Does it really matter... Do you really care

Why am I here, in a quiet mortuary
Listen to the bell, calling my name
Nobody sees, calling my name
Nobody hears me... As I... Scream

Why do I feel like I've been left behind
Could it really be I'm in the afterlife
You gotta tell me why I feel like I've been left behind
Could it really be I'm in the afterlife
Does it really matter... Do you really care

Solos: Shermann - Denner

Why do I feel like I've been left behind
Could it really be I'm in the afterlife
You gotta tell why people come but never stay
Could it really be I'm in the afterlife
Does it really matter... Do you really care

Solo: Shermann
 
 
Castillo del Mortes
Somewhere in ancient Spain, close to what was BAECULA
There lay Castillo Del Mortes
To be known as "House Of The Dead"
Oh no... Oh not here
A fool was playing with magic, magic he did not understand
He opened the unholy gates
Letting out The Ancient Ones from Hell

Solo: Shermann

600 people standing on the castle walls
Screaming for mercy, someone must have heard their calls
600 wondering what's going on
Two armies in the sky, forming and in battle line
Hear the battle cries...
7 cohorts of angels, fighting for The Elders to win
7 cohorst of angels, fighting for the people within
The "House Of The Dead" soon to be buried in sin
9 units of demons, The Ancient Ones command
9 units of demons, The Ancient Ones will stand
For the "House Of The Dead" will soon be buried in sin

Solo: Shermann

600 were watching in horror as they began to fight
None of the armies were using a weapon
As it is known to man
Demons and Angels were falling in numbers
Out of the burning sky... The burning sky
"Retreat, retreat", Oh the angels flee, "Defeat, defeat"
The battle's over, it's done

Somewhere in ancient Spain, close to what was BAECULA
There lay the battleground where many an angel was slain

Solo: Shermann

9 units of demons bringing unbearable sin
9 units of demons coming for the people within
The "House Of The Dead" will soon live up to its name
600 people running deep inside
600 people trying to hide
From the Ancient Ones
But there's nowhere to run on this day

Solo: Denner

There is no need to speak of the horrible fate
Bestowed upon the 600 from BAECULA
 
 
Come to the Sabbath
Come come to the Sabbath, down by the ruined Bridge
Witches and Demons are coming
Just follow the magic Call
Come come to the Sabbath, down by the ruined Bridge
Later on the Master will join us
Called from the Heart of Hell

At first we light up a Fire, and then we hail our Lord
Two Candles, a black and a white, are placed upon the Altar
North, South, East and West, and so we clean the Air
High Priestess invoking the Devil, infernal Names are spoken

Come to the Sabbath... Sabbath... Sabbath... Sabbath
Come to the Sabbath

The Ceremony's proceeding, it's Time to grant your Wishes
An Evil Curse on the Priest who took the Life of Melissa
Now we must close up the Ritual, read the Enochian Key
And so it will be done, Amen... now come

Come to the Sabbath... Sabbath... Sabbath... Sabbath
Come to the Sabbath... now here we come

Solo: Shermann

If you say Heaven, I say a Castle of Lies
You say forgive him, I say Revenge
My sweet Satan, You are The One
 
 
Black Funeral
Bring the black box to the altar
Now raise your hands and do the sign
Oh hail Satan, yes hail Satan
Lay down your swords, the evil star

It's a black funeral
She was a victim of my coven

Open the black box on the altar
Her blood is still hot, so let it out
Oh hail Satan, yes hail Satan
Now drink it, drink, drink, forget that whore

It's a black funeral
She was the victim of my coven
