Skeleton Skeletron Lyrics

(9)
Submitted by level Sathanas
1. Church of Tiamat (4:50)
no candycoloured paradise
no stary blackholed eyes
no more dreams of neverend
through embers only dark descends

no more comatose sleepwalking
no feeble sideshow toungetalking
not even crucified you`d get that far
nor escape the shining mourningstar

no lies shall opiate your senses
no spying glasses with shaded lenses
nor suns that burn a brighter tint
just lucid weaves in pristine mint

no more angels in the snow
no more hunting high and low
no more water in our veins
to seek out gold from grains

no fight to win or loose
no single path to choose
no second comind at all
just a simple rise and fall
2. Brighter Than the Sun (4:06)
[Music & Lyrics: Edlund]

we could wander in the garden of Eden baby
we could do anything tonight, maybe
we could even touch the sky
if we just get up on our feet and try
we could wander in the garden of Eden baby

will you settle for the bull`s run
for the second best of fun, we're turning
for the fire of a handgun
burns brighter than the sun, we're burning

any colour you like as long as it`s black
you could have anything if you just give it back
you could be a celebrity like me
it won`t change anything as you will see
any colour you like as long as it`s black
3. Dust is Our Fare (5:01)
there is a time when some of us are healed
there is a time you`re clean and undersealed
there is a time it almost looks like fun
there is a time for the bullet of a gun

no one here drinks water
none of us is sane
if you pretend you`re my daughter
we do it again and again
no one here is praying
`cause no one here is god
and every word we are saying
might as well be put in blood

there is a time when worms revel in me
there is a time for a pigfaced reality
there is a time and it`s usually the afternoon
there is a time and I hope it will be damn soon
4. To Have and Have Not (5:06)
she shivered, afraid that I would shoot
she`d panic, afraid that I would not
she drank it all right before my eyes
said, be my lucifer, be my lord of flies

I can take all your blasphemy
I can take all your sins
I can end any moment
and let new one begin

she said, do it and do it now
yeah, let all black birds fly again
for all fires that burned before
as hell`s fire, shall burn bright once more
5. For Her Pleasure (5:01)
erase the pictures from my mind
eliminate the presence of your kind
unloose the strings of instinct laws
just to fall into some other jaws

in pounding afternoon I rise
for the pleasure of dying twice
a wingcut anges in decline
breathe my air and I`ll be fine

put your teeth in me
carve your name in me
I don`t care if there is something
that I`m blind to see

invite yourself and feel free
to pick up splinter of debris
it`s in your sys.ex
subdues all that`s delusive

initially this lie I`d recoil
but again I crawl this dirty soil
of all possessions I did treasure
this one`s strictly for her pleasure
6. Diyala (1:25)
7. Sympathy for the Devil (Rolling Stones cover) (5:19)
Please allow me to introduce myself
I'm a man of wealth and taste
I've been around for a long, long year
Stole many a man's soul and faith

And I was 'round when Jesus Christ
Had his moment of doubt and pain
Made damn sure that Pilate
Washed his hands and sealed his fate

Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my name
`cause what's puzzling you
Is the nature of my game

I stuck around St. Petersburg
When I saw it was a time for a change
Killed the czar and his ministers
Anastasia screamed in vain

I rode a tank
Held a general's rank
When the blitzkrieg raged
And the bodies stank

Pleased to meet you
Hope you guess my name
Ah, what's puzzling you
Is the nature of my game

I watched with glee
While your kings and queens
Fought for ten decades
For the gods they made

I shouted out,
"Who killed the Kennedys?"
When after all
It was you and me

Let me please introduce myself
I'm a man of wealth and taste
And I laid traps for troubadours
Who get killed before they reached Bombay

Pleased to meet you
Hope you guessed my name
`cause what's puzzling you
Is the nature of my game

Pleased to meet you
Hope you guessed my name
`cause what's confusing you
Is just the nature of my game

Pleased to meet you, pleased to meet you
guess my name, guess my name
Pleased to meet you, pleased to meet you
guess my name, guess my name
8. Best Friend Money Can Buy (4:34)
We drank as much as we could,
And she drank more than she should.
We stumbled out of this cheap whiskey bar,
And that is the story so far.

Guided by the dim streetlights,
We walked through the black harbour night.
No people, no passing car,
Well, that is the story so far.

She thinks she smells the northland snow,
(Northland snow)
And she`s as glad as I to go,
(Ay, to go)
Her very bones are sick for shore,
(Sick for shore)
And I-- I want it ten times more.
(Ten times more)

She silenced her mouth when I asked for her name,
She asked me to please do the same.
She said it's all written in the stars,
And that is the story so far.

But she whispered her name when I kissed her goodbye,
Her voice stained by whiskey and tar.
She went back to where she belonged, and I--
I went back to the bar...
9. As Long As You Are Mine (4:39)
You dance like liquid fire
Like crystal methedrine
You make the stars come closer
The most beautiful girl I've seen

You're everything I want
Only you can set me free
You're an angel in the snow
You're a shot in the arm for me

I will let your L.E.D.'s shine
I will let your L.E.D.'s shine

I will let your L.E.D.'s shine

As long as you are mine

I will let your L.E.D.'s shine

As long as you are mine

You move and whisper softly
You make me safe and sound
You're a tranquilizer
You make the world go round

You are here beside me
You make me feel fine
I'll go through any day
As long as you are mine

I will let your L.E.D.'s shine

I will let your L.E.D.'s shine

I will let your L.E.D.'s shine

As long as you are mine

I will let your L.E.D.'s shine
As long as you are mine

As long as you are mine

I will let your L.E.D.'s shine

I will let your L.E.D.'s shine

I will let your L.E.D.'s shine

I will let your L.E.D.'s shine
As long as you are mine

I will let your L.E.D.'s shine
As long as you are mine

I will let your L.E.D.'s shine

I will let your L.E.D.'s shine

I will let your L.E.D.'s shine
As long as you are mine

I will let your L.E.D.'s shine
As long as you are mine
10. Lucy (5:14)
lucy was my first choise - lucy was the one
she was my silent voice - when all was said and done
yeah, lucy was a demon - she did it all my way
she`d give me all her fun - as long as I would pay!!

lucy gave me veil - like shaken crystal clear
when lights were turning pale - then I would still be there
lucy shone is neon - lucy swore she`s mine
and in anothes aeon - I would be the first in line
