Dead Again Lyrics

(10)
Submitted by level Sathanas
1. Torture (1629) (5:03)
Anna... was praying to a God
She had betrayed, so they said
Some folk had seen her flying on a broom
All Hallows Eve, under the moon
The inquisitor had left her behind
Gone for a bite, food on his mind
The sun was slowly trying to hide
Behind a town so full of pride
A sight Anna would never see again
Torture in the name of Christ, confess, oh you witch
Torture in the name of Christ, you witch you... confess
Sitting naked on the wooden horse
Weights to her legs, what a holy cross
Her bloody hands tied to her back
Her golden hair burned to black
Thumbscrews they had used
To crush each tip of her fingers to a pulp
In the torture chamber, she couldn't feel much more
Of anything... anymore
Torture in the name of Christ, confess, oh you witch
Torture in the name of Christ, you witch you... confess
Satan's mark... had slipped away
They already searched her body twice today
And it was all in vain
Oh Anna here they come again
Off the horse, strapado for a friend
Up she goes, higher and higher
Anna's crying, screaming: "Liars"
Confess, confess witch
Confess, before you die
"Yes, yes, I am a witch, may Satan take you all"
They dropped her from the ceiling
To a foot above the floor
Her ams and legs disjointed
Screams of pain... then finally no... more
2. The Night (5:51)
Old Nick is by my side, I hear no evil
As I walk into the night, I see no evil
Old Nick is by my side, I feel no evil
Oh... I'm gonna love this night... it's gonna be just fine
The two of us at midnight, a feeling of Hell
The two of us at midnight...
Just him and I, we're gonna spy on God
Old Nick... my imaginary friend
Old Nick is not what they say, here we go again
Through the dark on a snake we ride, the Devil's child
Oh... the moon is bright, she's oh so fine
The two of us at midnight, a feeling of Hell
The two of us at midnight...
Just him and I, we're gonna spy on God
Find out who he really is
Find out who she really is, The Night
Find out if he really is
Find out if she really is, The Night
Looking through a Demon's eye
We're gonna spy on God
Find out if he really is
Find out if she really is
Old Nick is by my side, I feel no evil
Oh... I'm gonna love this night... it's gonna be just fine
The two of us at midnight, a feeling of Hell
The two of us at midnight...
Just him and I, we're gonna spy on God
The Night
Find out who he really is
Find out who she really is, The Night
Find out if hee really is
Find out if she really is, The Night...
3. Since Forever (4:40)
On this cold and windy Sunday
I'm sitting here alone... It's Autumn
I'm looking at a yellow picture
You have been gone forever
Oh it's so very hard, growing old on your own, alone
I'm trying to remember... the days...
When we were young
Since forever, I still remember your ways
Since forever, I still remember
I have been reading your letter, over and over again
I can't believe you're gonna be here today
I can't believe... this is Sunday
How nice of you to come, it's been so way too long
Let me get you another glass of wine
To keep our tingues in time
Since forever, I still remember your ways
Since forever, I still remember
So many things have never been told
And now the both of us are way too old
Since forever, I still remember your ways
Since forever, I still remember
Like the light of the sun
You used to brightened my day
But darkness ha taken your place
And I can no longer keep it away
Since forever, I still remember your ways
Since forever, I still remember
I ask you for one last time
No there won't be any wine
Just one more time
So you can put flowers on my grave
And then leave again... since forever
4. The Lady Who Cries (4:18)
Many have seen the statue that cries
But only I have seen her at night
Many say that it... is a miracle
Many say that her... tears can heal you, but
When the sun goes down, and my day begins
That's when I saw her change
her tears did turn to blood, just like a miracle
And through her mouth of stone, I saw the fire
From so deep inside, I heard a voice from Hell
"I am the lady who cries, I am he who lights the night"
"I am Lucifer"
Many say that it... is a miracle
Many say ther her... tears can heal you, but
From so deep inside, I hear a voice from hell
"I am the lady who cries, I am he who fights the night"
"I'm your eternal friend"
"Let my children come to me at day
Let my children come to me and pray"
"They don't know who I am
Or that they worship the Devil
They don't know who I am
They think I'm a miracle..."
5. Banshee (4:47)
I heard it... in my sleep last night
I heard it... in your sleep last night
Now I can hear it again, outside the night is sad
I know it's not the wind, outside the night is black
Under our window is the Banshee
Wailing its haunted tune
Under out window is the Banshee
Waitling its haunted tune too soon
I know that, I must tell you a lie
I know that, it could be you and not I
Before the sun is rising, the Banshee cannot stay
Before the night is dying, a life will slip away
Under our window is the Banshee
Wailing its haunted tune
Under out window is the Banshee
Waitling its haunted tune too soon
I must light a fire, to chase away the night
Let us hold each other tight
The cats are gone, I guess... they know
Oh... they know what's gonna come
The wailing is so much louder, I need to hold you tight
I can feel you getting colder, is it time for you or I?
Solo: Shermann-Wead
Under our window is the Banshee
Wailing its haunted tune
Under out window is the Banshee
Waitling its haunted tune too soon
Let it be me
6. Mandrake (6:06)
Poisonous Mandrake, you danerous root
One of the three fates, when a man's time has come
You look so human, so different from any other plant
Youlook so human, that the Devil might take you for a man
White Mandragora, with you root so thick, you are the male
Black as the night on the outside, inside you're like a moon
You look so human, so different from any other plant
Youlook so human, that the Devil might take you for a man
Your leaves spread out... so close to the ground
Mandrake root, your berries are just like the sun
Mandrake root, as a female your root will be forked
Your juice has been known, to take away lives
Cause insanity... am I losing my mind?
In the olden days it was believed
That in the dark of night, you had to
Tie a string from the neck of a
Black dog to the Mandrake root, then move away, move away
And with meat you must lure the dog
to pull the Mandrake root from the ground
Cover your ears... cause the cry of the Mandrake root
No man has ever survived, the dog will surely die
Solo: Wead
Poisonous Mandrake, you dangerous root
One of the three fates, when a man's time has come
You look so human, so different from any other plant
Youlook so human, that the Devil might take you for a man
Your leaves spread out... so close to the ground
Mandrake root, your berries are just like the sun
Mandrake root, as a female your root will be forked
Your juice has been known, to take away lives
Cause insanity... am I losing my mind?
Mandrake root, bring me your poisonous love
Mandrake root, I need you to bring me that love
Mandrake root... Mandrake root bring me love
Mandrake root, bring me that poisonous thing
That everyone is calling LOVE
7. Sucking Your Blood (4:22)
I can see it in your mystery eyes
I can feel it on your breath tonight
The yearning for time, the yearning for eternal life
Oh... oh... oh... sucking your blood, oh... oh... oh
Let me look you deep in the eyes
Let me look... into your mind
Let me take you to a room full of life
Let me, let me, let me suck your wine
Oh...oh...oh...sucking your blood
Oh...oh...oh...sucking you, sucking your blood
A Chandelier is our source of light
I'm breathing in the golder air tonight
Time... is right, it's your innocent skin I like
Oh... oh... oh... sucking your blood, oh... oh... oh
Your neck is so delicately white, inviting my mouth for the bite
My teeth... your vein, like wine from a chalice I drink
Oh...oh...oh...sucking your blood
Oh...oh...oh...sucking you, sucking your blood
Your warm juices colour my throat
What unheavenly joy, turning yours into mine
Me... part of you, oh you are the wine
Sucking your blood before the night is torn
How could this ever, ever be a sin
If you would pull the stake from my heart
If you would let me draw another card
Maybe the Morning Star will blind our eyes
Maybe the Morning Star will bless another night
Solo: Shermann-Wead
Maybe the Morning Star will blind our eyes
Maybe the Morning Star will bless another night
Me... part of you, you are the wine
8. Dead Again (13:40)
Why do I keep on doing this? It's not for me anymore
I'm doing this more for you than I
And on that lonely road to nowhere
I lost myself to something else
I don't know where I'm going or where I've been
It's so hard to remember all the things I am, am I?
It feels like the end is near, catching up with me
Catch me if you can, cause I'm going down into the ground
How much longer can I keep going on?
I can feel my lost ones coming down
Sooner than later, I'll see you all again
I feel my purpose here slipping away
I see the sun, but it's raining
I hope I'm on my way to better things
And if I'm not, it doesn't really matter
Cause I am doing this more for you than I am me
I can no longer pretend, that my life is worth living
I... I would rather die, be dead again
Hold on
Now here it comes, death for one, a lonely son
Up then down, I'm spinning around
My sould is so confused again
Am I floating towards the sun?
Hold on, am I dead on?
Through a tunnel of black, why?
Why do I feel so sad?
I've been waiting for the end of act 9 to come
The curtain must fall, the end of a song
But the song goes on and on
The light is so very strong
I'm drifting along, I have no will
I'm drifting still
In a room without walls... I feel the chill
No one is here to pick me up
Nothingess... what a mess... oh
Is anybody there?
Is anybody there? I'm talking to you, do you hear me?
If I could only see through the wall of nothingness
The wall of black
They gave me number 9, this is not like the last time
Number 9
This time I am really losing my mind
I hear an orchestra... I see an orchestra
I greet an orchestra... I meet an orchestra
I'm in an orchestra... I am an orchestra
I kill this orchestra... I kill me? No
No don't stop, oh please don't stop
Hey stay here, what's going on?... hey wait for me
I'm running but I can't keep up
Then I realize my feet are gone
This is such a weird weird song
The orchestra is now a door
One is one and two is four, I can see three more
Seven doors, seven doors
I must choose one before they're gone
But I cannot move, oh they are drifting away now
But I cannot move, oh they are drifting away now
I've got to reach that door, the number 6
I've got to reach that door, the number 6
The number 6-6, the number 6-6-6
The number 6-6-6
The number 6-6-6, that's my door
Wuauuu... look at all the colours
There goes an orchestra, no more doors
Close the window, here they come
I hear another end of this song
But again the song goes on
Dead again, I know cause I've been here before
I'm dead agin, if I could only reach that door
The number 6-6-6, the number 6-6-6
I'm beginning to miss you again
Why can't I just get you out of my mind...
I must forget
Dead again, I know cause I've been here before
I'm dead again, if I could only reach that door
Through a purple mist the light is fading
I guess I'll have to stay dead
A little longer this time
Dead again...
9. Fear (4:17)
In the mirror... I have seen HIM
And he scares me
The crature... behind the mask I wear
I know his name is FEAR
In the mirror... he's looking back at me
I have to face him every day
And I know him not so well, his name is FEAR
So deep within, yet so far away
I... wonder, will he always stay
Stay so deep within, deep within my soul
And I know him not so well, his name is FEAR
The man... in the mirror, he scares me
For I know him not so well
The creature... behind the mask I wear
I know his name is FEAR
In the mirror... it's not omy eyes I see
But they are always there
I cannot let it show, NO ONE must ever know
The horror that lies so deep within
Tucked away beneath my skin
And it scares me, yes it scares me
So deep within, yet so far away
I... wonder, will he always stay
Stay so deep within, deep within my soul
And I know him not so well, his name is FEAR
No man... nor any book, will ever teach me
What I need to know
No man... nor any book, will ever teach me
What I'm longing for
Only the creature... living inside of me
Could show me the meaning of life
I cannot let it show, NO ONE must ever know
The horror that lives so deep within
Tucked away beneath my skin
And it scares me, yes it scares me
10. Crossroads (5:40)
You are Selene, the moon in heaven
You are Persephone, Queen of the Underworld
Hecate... darkness and terror of the night
Hecase... oh, the crossroads are thine
You are Diana, you are the hunter of souls
The dogs are howling, we dogs know when you approach
Let us ride with a beast tonight
Let us ride to the crossroads
Let us ride with a beast tonight, oh let us ride
At the crossroads, they buried criminals and suicides
At the crossroads, any traveller could lose a life
A suitable place, for making a pact with the Devil
A suitable place, for us to hold the sabbath
Let us ride with a beast tonight
Let us ride to the crossroads
Let us ride with a beast tonight
Let us ride in the dead of night...
Even you mortals can ride with her at night
And join the night-flying demons, oh you and I
Listen to their tales of wandering ghosts
Listen to their tales of forgotten times
Listen to their tales of the crossroads
Listen to their tales of forgotten lives
Oh Diana
Hecate... darkness and terror of the night
Hecate... oh, the crossroads are thine
You are Diana, you are the hunter of souls
the dogs are howling, we dogs know when you approach
Let us ride with a beast tonight
Let us ride to the crossroads
Let us ride with a beast tonight
Let us ride in the dead of night...
To the crossroads... to the crossroads...
We ride to the crossroads, in search of your soul
We ride to the crossroads, in search of your soul...
