(Instrumental)




2. UDOROTH

Once minuscule, clawed from the ranks of slime
Condemned to pay for every mortal crime
A soul so loathsome, even demons tremble
His name is misery, depraved, divine

The lust for agony that long laid dormant
Has woken in his damned desire for abhorrent, loathsome pain

Udoroth
Fear his name
Mercy is not authorized in his domain
Udoroth
The demon lord
Laying waste to man’s dominion with his horde
A reign of fear and carnage that shall be restored
Udoroth

A feast of flesh, to dominate, devour
Growing in atrocious obscene power
Mastering the hellish death domain
Demon blood now courses through his veins

There’s no escape from eyes of flame and torment
His grip is tighter than the manacles of iron and the chains

Udoroth
Torturous king
He whips the backs of his choir to make them sing
There’s no escape, from his flail
Flesh and gore are such a bore without the wails
Cries of the tortured to his rule are hails

The scrying pool foretold the epoch of his reign
Reflected in the blood, his rise from hell’s domain
He takes the bridge to earth, dark souls at his command
And challenges the queen for the destiny of man

He will bring forth subjugation
Of the damned for all to see
Souls enthralled, the culmination
Of his torment mastery

Cults enslaved to his destruction
Summon forth a new rebirth
Udoroth, the lord of demons
Rise up, overthrow the earth

Now called again through to the other side
On hell and earth his power undenied
A plan in motion from the ages born
To rule the living, dead, with no divide

An evil reckoning will burn the future
And no one ever will deny him of his right

Udoroth
Fear his name
Mercy is not authorized in his domain
Now, quake with fear
Death comes to all
And the darkest lust is sentenced to the deepest fall
All who stand before him shall be made to crawl




3. FORTUNE TELLER

Step up to the window
Lonely travelling man
I can see your future
Glimpse the master plan

Maybe rags to riches
Walking tall or sinking
But you’ll have to pay me
The devil cards are speaking

Superstitious mind
Looking for an out
There’s no road to salvation
There’s no time for doubt

One night
This time
You will give me your soul

Crystal ball has spoken
All your dreams are broken
Take a chance
Just lay your money down

Evil spirits haunt you
Seeking to destroy you
And your soul will never be found

Look me in the face
Don’t tell anyone
Oh the spells I cast
They cannot be undone
No they cannot be undone

In this sacred place
Only you and I
These ancient words of magic
Make us one tonight

One night
This time
You will give me your soul

Crystal ball has spoken
Your dreams all are broken
Take a chance
Just lay your money down

Evil spirits haunt you
Seeking to destroy you
And your soul will never be found

The fortuneteller telling lies
I see through your cheap disguise
There’s no place where you can hide
So far from home
No place to go
And I’ll leave you there to die

Your days are numbered you will see
When you think that you are free
I won’t leave them any sign
I’ll track you down
Sweet revenge
At the end of the line

Crystal ball has spoken
All your dreams are broken
Take a chance
Just lay your money down

Evil spirits haunt you
Seeking to destroy you
And your soul will never be found

The crystal ball has spoken
All your dreams are broken
No final chance
Your world will come crashing down
You’ll come crashing down




4. THE BOY WHO COULD FLY

Each cold and lonely morning
When the sunlight hits the wall
I wake to find that nothing
Has changed for me at all

I know there was a better time
In a better place
But just like a fading dream
I can’t recall your face

As the years pass me by
I can’t remember why

Time steals the memories
From before we were apart
But time can’t heal
This empty feeling in my heart
Home was the place where we shared a life
But you flew away and you never said goodbye

But there’s a fleeting image
That clings still to my mind
Eyes of hope and sadness
Both so artfully entwined

And when the season changes
When the autumn leaves drift by
I try to remember the boy who could fly

What did you say?
Why did you go away?

Time steals the memories
From before we were apart
But time can’t heal
This empty feeling in my heart
Home was the place where we shared a life
But you flew away and you never said goodbye

Fly from the window
To the darkness as it calls
Fly through the dreaming night
Stardust as it falls

There’s a memory I hide behind a wall
You never really flew away at all
I hear the sirens wailing in the night
In a moment’s desperation
You were gone from sight

I see your face in the mirror’s glass
Won’t you take me with you now at last?




5. ELIJAH

Is someone there?
Can you hear me?

It's always been so silent
I'm all alone at night
Standing by my window
As the hours pass me by

Sometimes I think someone's here
I see him in the glass
And if he's real, then maybe...
Maybe I have a friend at last

This room is sanctuary
This house is all I know
Locked inside for safety
I've never dared to go

No one else to play with
Mother is my only friend
She warns me of the outside
The dangers I could never comprehend

But suddenly he's there
A voice to speak my name
He comes and then he's gone
It's our secret game

And now he shows me places
I've never seen before
The rooms she's locked and hidden
An unknown name on a forbidden door

What are you doing down here?
Haven't I told you not to go sneaking around
Who are you talking to?
You'll be sorry if you make another sound

Take my hand, Elijah
And stay the night with me
We'll walk these halls together
There's so much more to see

In this room she kept from me
I've found another face
Just like mine but different
I see, I took her place

Memories begin to stir
Is this where I belong?
A shadow growing in my mind
Fed by Elijah's song

Why are you down here?
Haven't I told you to obey
Why can't you just behave yourself?
Why can't you do as I say?

Speak to me, Elijah
Tell me all the things you've seen
Tell me what you've seen
All these images that haunt me
Tell me what do they all mean

The life you think you know
Is just a cruel game
They took you from your home
And robbed you of your name

You've got to leave this place
That's why I've come for you
They killed your family
And soon they'll kill you too

My brother's voice brought tears to my eyes
I understood all the lies
And I knew what must be done
I made my plan
I'd have her blood on my hands

I'm creeping down the hall
I've got the knife in my hand
Elijah leads me on as I make my stand
Now at the side of the bed
I pray and drive the knife in
But mother screams in rage
As the chase begins

She hunts me in the night
I see the house catch flame
And rising from their graves
More girls who lost their names

Now, now is the time
Now you will pay
You took my brother, my family away
This is my reckoning day
What do you have to say?

How dare you accuse me?
(because you killed us)
Can't you see how much I loved you
You should have been our daughters
What more could we do?

The spirits dragged her down into the flames
Where she lies still to this day
(she lies still to this day)
Where she lies still to this day
And I left that fire burning
I felt the fear fade away

I remember Elijah
My brother from a life long gone
Take my hand, Elijah
(we'll fly away)
We'll fly away
(we'll fly away)
We'll fly away
We'll fly away into the dawn




6. MASTER OF PAIN

The power is your passion
Control is in your hands
To make one bend the knee
And submit to your command

Sweat and tears and leather
The smell of human dread
Dripping from the skin
As your appetite is fed

Don’t show any mercy
It’s never the time

Screaming in the darkness
A piercing, haunting wail
Colored by the horror
Of your intoxicating hell

Flashes of the memories
Where pain was just a kiss
Nothing could prepare you
For an ecstasy like this

It’s like a resurrection
A turning of the heart
A cardiac infection
Ripping flesh apart

You’re a master of pain
With the eternal reign
Of a creature born of fire

Flesh is yours to enjoy
Yours to destroy
All is dark in your desire
Master of pain

I feel your fear is rising
Your muscles start to strain
But your heart is pumping faster
Blood is racing through your veins

The horror of your actions
Has torn your soul in two
It’s a testament of fevered lust
That all began with you

Through all your mortal terror
Your hunger comes alive
Animal in nature
I see it in your eyes

You’re a master of pain
With the eternal reign
Of a creature born of fire

Flesh is yours to enjoy
Yours to destroy
All is dark in your desire
Master of pain

I know the joy that you feel
Like you’re going insane
The only joy that you feel
It lies in the pain

Through all your mortal terror
Your hunger comes alive
Animal in nature
I can see it in your eyes

You’re a master of pain
With the eternal reign
Of a creature born of fire

Flesh is yours to enjoy
Yours to destroy
All is dark in your desire
Master of pain




7. BLOOD FROM THE MUMMY'S TOMB

Dreams of the past enslaving the heart of man
Leading them toward my desert where life began
A tomb lying waiting, sarcophagus buried so deep
Leading them down through the darkness where I lay in sleep

Crawl like scarabs down to rob my pride
Greedy fingers steal the wealth inside
Take my riches, go on, don’t be afraid
My resurrection will not be denied

A final ring
Emboldened by their greed
They sever the hand that wears it
See my corpse, it bleeds

Dread black shadows dance on stone and gold
Three thousand years my corpse has not grown old
To wage my war I must find a host
Beguiled by the ring she is mine to control

Blood from the mummy’s tomb
Accept the ring
Be consumed

Rise from the desert grave
There’s no escape
From my embrace

Lust for magic, strength and the unknown
Power over death, I can’t be dethroned
My soul within the gem that seals her fate
Everlasting life is mine alone

Blood from the mummy’s tomb
Accept the ring
Be consumed

Die, now it’s too late
Jewel of the seven stars
Shall seal your fate

Now a living, breathing vessel I have claimed
Her mind, her heart, her soul are mine to tame
Bloodshed is the right I now demand
It’s my command
To raise my kingdom on foreign land

Blood from the mummy’s tomb
Accept the ring
Be consumed

Rise from the desert grave
There’s no escape
From my embrace




8. BLACK SECRETS

Silence broken by the whispers
Of the voices in my head
As they guide me past the light
And I crave to be misled

Did you break the sacred seal
Or was it all a dream
Can I deny the blissful madness
Coloring the screams

There’s lust, illusion through the void
The light corrupted and destroyed

You can never hide the look within your eyes
When everything you say sounds like a lie
There is truth beyond the faces that they see
Black secrets that you only share with me

First troubled hesitation
For only moments at a time
Eyes opened, looking through the mirror
Reflecting every crime

I fought the urge to run
As the darkness claimed my heart
Days and months I spent in silence
Til your words tore me apart

Enthralled by long forbidden words
Enchantments cannot be unheard

Though in passing I cannot look at your eyes
I know you can see every hidden lie
There is nothing I can hide you cannot see
Black secrets that you only share with me

Conspiring in the darkness
Blind and silent by command
Casting charms and incantations
With the motions of our hands

Enthralled by long forbidden words
Enchantments cannot be unheard

You can never hide the look within your eyes
When everything you say sounds like a lie
There is truth beyond the faces that they see
Black secrets that you only share with me




9. ONE EMPTY GRAVE

Lonely soldier marches on
Cries of battle pierce the air
Feel the heat from the burning sun
All we have is hope and a prayer

Trapped inside the devil’s den
Backs against the gray stone wall
Crossfire from everywhere
Look to the sky before I fall

And I know…this bloody lane I roam
And I know…it will forever be my home

One empty grave
Frozen in time
I will never leave this place
It’s my revenge, the perfect crime
Killer’s gone without a trace

I’ve waited a hundred years
Did you think we’d never meet again
A heart of vengeance has no fear
You have nothing left to defend

I see you tremble in front of me
Nowhere to run in the cold winter night
The bloody truth will set you free
When your filthy lies all come to light

And I know…this bloody lane I roam
And I know…it will forever be my home

One empty grave
Frozen in time
I will never leave this place
It’s my revenge, the perfect crime
Killer’s gone without a trace

So at last you come to me
Face to face where thousands bled
Eye for an eye
It’s your fate
To walk with the undead

One empty grave
Frozen in time
I will never leave this place
It’s my revenge, the perfect crime
Killer’s gone without a trace




10. HOUSE OF BONES

Speak to me father from beyond the grave
Come to me mother I have found the way
Here in the darkness where they cannot see
Call on the saints to set the spirits free

Bone, blood, and ash offered to the well
Open the doorway from heaven and hell
Mansions like graveyards, foundations of the past
Death has been turned and life begins at last

Our legacy was buried
Our names unknown
The bodies may be lost
But their souls live on and on
In the house of bones

Deeper through the swampland, there is music here again
Raging from the house built on the backs of stolen men
Blood bound to the earth where bodies lie in unmarked graves
Two hundred years of servitude from the children of their slaves

The house of bones will rise
The voodoo in my blood can’t be denied
The time has come for the servants of the past
To rise again and sing with pride
In the house of bones

Harmless little hexes and a curse upon their name
Their egotistic cruelty was the only thing to blame
A plague falls upon the home and carries loved ones to the ground
The mistress of the house is dragged into the swamp and drowned

The house of bones will rise
The voodoo in my blood can’t be denied
The time has come for the servants of the past
To rise again and sing with pride
In the house of bones

The house of bones will rise
The voodoo in my blood can’t be denied
The time has come for the servants of the past
To rise again and sing with pride
In the house of bones

You know that judgment for your sins will come to pass
And you know the tyranny of greed can never last
You can’t escape the past

The time has come for the lost forgotten souls to stake their claim
Rise above, sing, proclaim
They can never erase your name
Your blood cannot be tamed
