Legend of the Headless Rider Lyrics

8. Legend of the Headless Rider (7:43)
["The Rise"]
I'm an undertaker
I'm a ghost in the night
I'm a coffin shaker
This graveyard site is mine

Take a look at the sky, see that evil eye
Tonight the moon is cold as ice
Oh yeah... cold as ice... oh yeah

There's a black horse waiting
Will HE be on time?
The graveyard's shaking
Should I turn my eyes and walk away

Take a look at the sky, see that evil eye
Tonight the Headless Rider rides

Midnight... let the churchbell ring
It's midnight, All Hallows Eve
It's midnight, All Hallows Eve
I see him rising from his grave
I see him rising from his grave.......

["The Chase"]
On All Hallows Eve, Never to forget
He rides the open field
In search of his head

My GOD, he's so grotesque
Should I stay?
My GOD, a scythe in his hand
NO WAY
He's coming... I'm running
He's coming... I'm running
Deep inside I know I'm the one
He's coming... I'm running
Deep inside I know this is wrong
Help me, I'm falling down

[Solo: Shermann]

I'm falling down...
I'm looking up... I'm in a grave

["Doomed"]
In this hollow grave
I can smell that he's near
Will I ever never make it
Will I shed a tear

Oh it's strange how everything's changing
Now my life is fading away

In this hollow grave
I see a bony hand
Don't you ever never take it
It's the key to his land

Oh it's strange how everything's changing
Now my life is fading away

[Solo: Denner]

Oh it's strange how everything's changing
Now my life is fading away

NO!

["Epilogue"]
The mind in my headless body
Seems to be chained to the inside
I cannot move towards the light...
And as he rides away
Leaving me with this curse
I hear his laughter in the distance
Actually it's my laughter, he stole my head
Does this mean I'll be The One next year???
