Don't Break the Oath Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level       Last modified by level Eagles
1. A Dangerous Meeting (5:12)
Tonight the circle is meeting again
Who will be the first to fall in trance
In here nobody is sensing the rain
Tonight a spirit will glance

So as they're approaching ghostly hour
Seven people here are joining hands
They think they know the spirit to appear
Contact, the table starts to dance

Time is standing still
It's a dangerous meeting
They're gonna get themselves killed

Solo: Michael Denner

Tonight the circle is broken forever
Seven people dead within a trance
In here nobody is sensing the rain
Tonight seven souls are reaching Hell

Time was standing still
The meeting is over
Their journey is on

Oh, they should have known
Not to play with the powers of Hell

Some people have lost their way
Some people have lost their mind
2. Nightmare (6:21)
Am I awake or is this just a dream?
I had a nightmare, some sort of vision

I was stuck in an empty room
When the black book appeared

The lights were dim, but the face in the book
Was in daylight

Eyes of fire staring at me
It's the eyes of a woman
And I see, on her spirit
Steppin' out of the book

Solo: Michael Denner

I hear her callin' for her coven to come
There's a light in the doorway
Entering shadows whose number is 13
They do the sign of the Devil's seed
I'm in the middle of a magic ring
Somebody tell me, what's goin' on
"Only we know the secret of the curse
that you bear"

Listen, they sing, the coven sings
Night after night I hear them sing
No, they're still here, I can hear them again
Night after night I have this dream
"You are insane!"
"You are insane!"
"You are insane!"
"You are insane!"
"You're only living on borrowed time from
your fate"

Solo: Hank Shermann
3. Desecration of Souls (4:57)
Stay away white magician, young lovers
and mourning wife
You're not welcome on our land
So I speak for the dead

Solo: Michael Denner

Magic circles drawn after midnight
Around graves to be opened
He'll use the wand to raise a body
He'll ask the questions and he'll burn the remains

It's desecration of souls in their holy lair

Solo: Michael Denner

Copulation in the night
Two shadows upon a grave
Screams of pleasure and screams of pain
Young lovers, you must be insane

It's desecration of souls in their holy lair
So I say again: Stay away, it's desecration
of souls

Solo: Hank Shermann/Michael Denner

Dyin' flowers upon the grave
Of a husband who's lost his maid
She's there on duty, and the tears she cries
They don't belong where the flowers lie

It's desecration of souls in their holy lair
So I say again: Stay away, it's desecration
of souls

Solo: Michael Denner
4. Night of the Unborn (5:02)
I forbid you entrance here, you step on hollow ground
Don't you see this chapel
Shut up! Hold your tongue, they must rest
in silence
It's the rebirth of the unborn

Tonight is the night
The spirits of the unborn will play tonight
The unborn will play tonight

They will dance around the chapel
It's a feast for the dead
They will make a fool of the priest
And the dead boy's choir will sing
A song for the dead to whom life has just
begun
Life of the unborn

This one's for the unborn

Solo: Michael Denner

Did you know? 13 days have come and gone
Since we had the first of june

The spirits of the unborn will play tonight
Forgive them, they didn't die

Solo: Michael Denner/Hank Shermann/Michael Denner/Hank Shermann/Michael Denner
5. The Oath (7:34)
By the symbol of the creator, I swear henceforth to be
A faithful servant of his most puissant arch-angel
The Prince Lucifer
Whom the creator designated as his regent
And Lord of this world. Amen

I deny Jesus Christ, the deceiver
And I abjure the Christian faith
Holding in contempt all of it's works

Solo: Michael Denner/Hank Shermann

As a being now possessed of a human body
In this world I swear to give my full allegiance
To it's lawful master, to worship him
Our Lord, oh Satan, and no other

In the name of Satan, the ruler of Earth
Open wide the gates of Hell and come forth from the abyss
By these names: Satan, Leviathan, Belial,
Lucifer
I will kiss the goat

Solo: Hank Shermann/Michael Denner

I swear to give my mind, my body and soul unreservedly
To the furtherance of our Lord Satan's designs

Do what thou wilt, shall be the whole of the law

As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be
World without end. Amen.

Solo: Hank Shermann/Michael Denner
6. Gypsy (3:10)
This magic winter night I see a light
Again I hear that tune, some sort of croon

Oh no no no, oh my brain

I see them gypsy wagons left in the snow
Oh I must see that lady, I have to know
Gypsy woman let me inside

Solo: Michael Denner

They say you know the secret, secret of time
So gaze into your crystal and tell me all
you see

Gypsy Woman let me know

"Oh my son you were never gone
You are the Devil's child, and so am I"

Solo: Michael Denner/Hank Shermann

Gypsy now I know you're not my mother
You are a part of my soul, it's clear for all to see

Oh no no no, I am you
Gypsy you're inside of me
7. Welcome Princess of Hell (4:06)
I turn off the lights, we like darkness
Now you call my name, you finally came
Even in the night I see the light shining bright
I'm alone with my friends

Now I see you clear, we raise our glasses
Welcome to my house, Princes of Hell
Even in the night I see the light shining bright
I'm alone with my friends

I will bring in here my crystal ball
I will gaze, you will know what is to come

Solo: Michael Denner/Hank Shermann

I'm amazed of what I've seen tonight
I won't tell a living soul, they would not believe
Welcome, Princes of Hell

Never will I break the oath I gave
I hail you again in Satan's name, Princes of Hell
Even in the night I see the light shining
bright
I'm alone with my friends
We will be back, we will be back
8. To One Far Away (1:31)
instrumental
9. Come to the Sabbath (5:18)
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: Hank 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
