Creepy Tales for Freaky Children Lyrics

(11)
Submitted by level Sathanas
1. Welcome To Creepy Tales (0:51)
2. Urban Dreams (3:44)
I've never been this room before
I don't like this place at all
Some ugly shadows creeping...
On the wall of empty hall

I cannot make a move
I cannot even scream!
How does it happen to me now?
It cannot be! It's all...

...A DREAM
I CAN'T HELP TO BELIEVE
THE DREAM I FEAR TO STAY IN AND THE ONE I FEAR TO LEAVE
IT'S ALL A DREAM
TO SEE THE OWN TALE
I FEAR TO COME AND FEAR TO FAIL

The tide so free and proud
Soft watercolor clouds
I wanna take a breath and scream my heart out!
The noble coasts rise
Embracing wild streams
Eternal forest lies behind
It's fabulous! It's all...
3. Bubble Bath (3:38)
Another day of shameful living's coming to an end
Twelve hours of jests and hurting words that Mickey's used to stand
A daily dose of cruel gibes, a sorrow's set in emerald eyes
Who the hell needs such a being when the dying looks so nice?

PLEASANT SMELL OF BUBBLE BATH
SLOW, SLOW, SLOW, SLOW DOWN YOUR BREATH
LET THE LIFE FLOW OUT OF VEINS
DO YOU REALLY THINK IT'S GONNA EASE YOUR PAINS?

A nagging hurt of dirty pranks is tearing her apart
How could they all be so unkind and stab her in the heart?
Sweet-scented foam is getting red while scarlet drops are dripping
A final whiff of Mary Jane before a long and quiet sleeping

"How could you be so unkind? How could you be so unkind?
How could you all be so blind and make me live that way?!"
4. Spikyhead + Miremaid (2:30)
The rain is falling on and on
Seems like the town sleeps
A lone girl with mossy locks
Is walking down the streets

She has no friends -
They hate her hair and labrets in her lip
She's used to be an outcast
And doesn't need their fellowship
But suddenly she caught his look
So close and so deep...

SPIKYHEAD AND MIREMAID
WILD AND INSANE
ONE BAD NIGHT AN UGLY PRINCE
MET HIS LOVELY LADY IN THE RAIN

A black tattoo along the neck
The hair is colored red
A lot of piercing on his face
Brought him the name of "Spikyhead"

A quaint guy, a dusky soul
He's always glum and mute
He smokes two packs of Kents a day
And seems too sick and brute
But suddenly he caught her look
So close and so cute...
5. Vesperghosts Of Milford Playhouse (4:46)
Once and again
You see this stage in the rain
Blanket of leaves
Broken soffits twinkle...
Pain and love, desire and sorrow
Echoes of passion and hate...
All that place lived by is now exhaled

CRYSTAL HORNS OF NEW MOON IN THE PUDDLES
AUTUMN RAIN IN THE DARK OF NIGHT-TIME
AIRY BODIES OF SPECTERS GO ROUND IN THE DANCE
JUST REPEATING THE DEAD ACTORS MIME

Rundown walls
Depressing scrape of the gate
Two hundred rows
Like two hundred effectors...
Fate, you can be such a bitch sometimes...
Stealing the ultimate chance
Stripping our lives of the Sense
We're going all out, we do all we can
Trying to bless everybody and then...
There is only a desolate stage in the end!

Never let me awake
Let me drown in the deep
Let me die in lethargical sleep!
6. A Rose For Michelle (3:34)
A youthful fellow humbly came into a flower store
A present for a pretty girl is what he's looking for
He knows that she is wild about handsome yellow blooms
How many roses in the room... "That's good one", he presumes

A YELLOW ROSE FOR MICHELLE
A ROSE FOR MICHELLE
WE DISAGREED BUT NOW IT HAS NO SENSE
A YELLOW ROSE FOR MICHELLE
A ROSE FOR MICHELLE
I KNOW I'M WRONG BUT GIVE ME ONE LAST CHANCE
I'LL NEVER FAIL...

An undertaker's car has stopped beside a flower store
A bunch of roses for a girl that died the night before
Her crying parents said that she adored some yellow plants
There is a lot of stuff like that... "Let's buy it all at once!"
7. Dolly (3:36)
Long time ago, when Dolly was seven
Young Sally Hudson has driven her here
Summer has came to the streets of uptown
Little Dolly was pretty and clear

"Sweetie, I'm getting too old for the moppets
Find someone else to play with", Sally said
She left the doll in a store of her dad
But it wasn't a shop for nymphets

"WHAT DO I DO IN THIS HORRIBLE HALL?
LITTLE GIRLS WHO MIGHT NEED ME DON'T COME HERE AT ALL!
RADIANT EYES AND A SMILE ON MY FACE
NO ONE NEEDS THEM IN THIS SILLY PLACE!"

Sleeping at night on a glass-case of dildos
Watching some horrible clips on TV
Losing the hope Dolly falls in despair
'Cause it's not that she wanted to see

Pink furry handcuffs and orange pillboxes
Strange rubber stuff and some violet creams
Day after day people buy all these things
Forcing Dolly to bury her dreams

"WHAT DO I DO IN THIS HORRIBLE HALL?
LITTLE GIRLS WHO MIGHT NEED ME DON'T COME HERE AT ALL!
RADIANT EYES AND A SMILE ON MY FACE...
WHAT THE HELL DOES A SMILE ON MY FACE?!
(LET HER OUT...)
OH, PLEASE LET ME OUT OF THIS PLACE!"

"Such an odious room! What a sinkhole!
Never thought I could hate it so much!
Twenty one years in latex inferno
Twenty one years without a touch
Sally, I loved you! And what?!
You left me down here to rot!"

Deep in the night Mr. Hudson was roused
Hearing a tinkle of glass in the hall
Silence was broken with sounds of sirens
Someone has stolen the doll
Someone has stolen the doll
"God damn that stupid doll"
8. Lamplighter (4:55)
A lonely foggy place
A small deserted space
Abandoned barren lost in slum
A close full of dump

A faint shine of stars
A wail of police cars
Graffiti walls and wire-nettings
Round a glowing lamp

From dusk till early dawn
The lamp-post stays alone
A sole passer goes past
Dissolving in the night

The tramps in dirty suits
The gangs of reckless youths
Some strangers step into
And out of the light

DAY IS OVER, SUN IS DOWN
EMPTY STREETS OF SLEEPING TOWN
LATEST HOPE IS GOING TO EXPIRE
ROAD IS GONE AND TIME IS OUT
TIRED MIND IS FULL OF DOUBT
BUT SOMEBODY ALWAYS STARTS A FIRE

By nights some barren sprite
Turns on the lamp-post bright
The gutter kids espied his work
But no one saw his face

A gleaming yellow eye
When fear is drawing nigh
A small lighthouse in urban maze
Can help to find the trace
9. The Afterguide (4:45)
Leaden sky, a snowy lane
The dateless willows standing stripped
Weeping cry of mourning train
An angel's waiting on the crypt

GOODBYE, MY LITTLE CHILD
A BETTER WORLD AWAITS YOU
WE'VE LOST YOUR SHINING SMILE
WE'LL ALWAYS, ALWAYS MISS YOU
NOW LORD IS WATCHING FOR A SOUL
THAT LEFT YOUR FLESH TODAY
GOODBYE, MY LITTLE CHILD, AND FLY AWAY...

Callow ghost fell out of shell
A frightened girl in dead men's land
Faint shade of young Michelle
The angel takes her lifeless hand

A crystal tear
A crystal tear has fallen
The gate is near
The light of new asylum
The angel leads the way
Its wings are widely spread
Farewell, you cannot stay
New home lies ahead
10. The Dead, The Living And The City (4:09)
The fog blots out the city
Cold shine of setting sun
The hive is intermitting
Its eternal run

Steel bugs along the highways
Skylines of towers rise
Big houses are closing
Square glassy eyes

AND CITY MAKES A SLEEPY SIGH
ENWRAPPING IN SUNRAYS
AGED SOULS GO TO THE SKY
WHILE NEWBORN ONES ARE FLOWING DOWN THE HAZE

A glowing chain of lanterns
Has outlined the streets
The inky wilds of blocks are strewn
With amber beads

Behind the dark horizon
The melted sun has drowned
The crimson stripes of clouds
Amassed above the ground

The sounds slowly die away
The roads are now free
The songs of evening spirits play
But no one hears them...

See the buildings down below
Stone plants on concrete field
Secrets you might never know
Can now be revealed
11. Hide And Seek With Cary Nage (3:35)
A muted filthy snigger
A creak of closet door
Poor Willy shrinks away
He's frightened to the core

Bad smell suffused the room
When Cary came in sight
There's no remorse in silky voice:
"We're gonna play tonight..."

YOU HAVE TO MIND THE RULES
YOU'LL LIKE THIS GAME
THE HIDE AND SEEK WITH CARY NAGE
A MINUTE FOR A RUN
A LOT OF PLACE TO HIDE
THE WHOLE HOUSE IS THE STAGE
WILLY HIDES AND CARY SEEKS
ALL IS FAIR, NO DIRTY TRICKS!
WILLY WINS AND STOPS TO SHAKE
BUT IF YOU LOSE... YOU'D BETTER AWAKE

The game begins when Cary counts
And Willy leans against the wall
A creepy gnash of iron teeth
It's Cary prowling in the hall

Time is crawling, time is creeping
Lazy points are moving slow
Musty smell is getting near
"Willy, are you here?"

"Let's play hide and seek, my sweet
You're a hider, I am it
When I get to 5 o'clock
You should be as quiet as log
One o'clock - the door unlocked
Two and three - don't stay by me
Five o'clock - I'm lying rogue
So here I come to bite!!!"
12. Once Upon A Day (3:33)
In the middle of the night
Just let yourself awake
Step to a windowpane
See how the willows dance around the lake

Take a minute to get dressed
Then sneak across the floor
Now turn your Walkman on
Put on the phones and fly outside the door

MAGIC HOUR HAS ARRIVED
TAKE YOU PAINS AWAY
FAIRYTALE COMES IN YOU LIFE
JUST AS YOU WISHED IT ONCE UPON A DAY

Run across a clover meadow
Wet your face with dew
Ride with the fairies down the empty lanes
And see your dreams come true

Let your heart be free as much
As you might ever need
Wait 'till the morning rays sweep down the stars
And wake the sleepy streets

Remember how they called you nuts
Remember how you stood the grief
How many tears you cried
What pain you felt but still tried to believe
Remember how your heart was bleeding
While you smiled
But you still didn't stop believing
You just couldn't give it up...
