Burning the Cross

(Right now they're so nice) for they don't know destination.
Demons and witches are (leaving less) repressions.
Breaking religion by burning the Cross.
Breaking religion, burning the Cross.

Traveling in darkness, afraid of recognition.
Evil ambitions, they're planning the destruction.
Breaking religion by burning the Cross.
Breaking religion, burning the Cross.

Oh, you gotta see them riding through the darkness.
(Stay) in the night, unholy light.

Doomsday reflections, above the clouds I was gone. (I must go?)
Doomsday infections, in their heads, and in their minds.

Curse of the Pharaohs

Away out in Egypt in the valley of kings
Where the mummified pharaohs
Pretend dead in their sleep

Don't touch, never ever steal
Unless you're in for the kill
Or you'll be hit by the curse of the pharaohs
Yes you'll be hit and the curse is on you

Now if you're breakin' the seals
and disturbing the peace
Then you're startin' up a curse
Bringin' evil disease

Don't touch, never ever steal
Unless you're in for the kill
Or you'll be hit by the curse of the pharaohs
Yes you'll be hit and the curse is on you

The curse of the pharaohs can be so deadly
Or just destroying your future
Takin' it all shady

Don't touch, never ever steal
Unless you're in for the kill
Or you'll be hit by the curse of the pharaohs
Yes you'll be hit and the curse is on you

Return of the Vampire

Its suicide
The birth of a vampire
Fresh in his lair
Spreading the veil

Heíll spread his wings
Leaving at sunset
Fly high and low
Back before sunís glow

Return of the vampire
Leaving his lair
Sucking your blood through your veinsÖ..(2x)

Thereís only one way you can stop him
You gotta trace the vampire to his lair, oh yeah
And then you gotta drive a stake
Right through the heart of the living dead, oh yea
Oh I can feel you living again

Vampire Ė Iím loosing control
Vampire Ė just give me your soul
Vampire Ė Iím loosing control
Vampire Ė just give me your soul

On a Night of Full Moon

STAY AWAY
I AM EVIL
OR YOU WILL DIE
BY TOMORROW

(wolf-like howls)

Copulation with a body
Of a woman recently dead
My ceremonies with all the corpses
Finding souls I spread them open

Itís a desecration of souls
In their holy lair

Magic circles drawn after midnight
Around graves to be opened
I use a wand and bodies rise
ask the questions and then burn the remains

Itís a desecration of souls
In their holy lair
Oh this sacrifice Iíve been searching
On the night of full moon

Copulation with a body
Of a woman recently dead
My ceremonies with all the corpses
Finding souls I spread them open

Itís a desecration of souls
In their holy lair
Oh this sacrifice Iíve been searching
On the night of full moon

A Corpse Without Soul

Listen, I'm a corpse, I'm a corpse
I'm a corpse without soul
Satan, he's taken, he's taken
He's taken his toll
And he took it out on me

I, I'm trapped, I'm trapped
I'm trapped in his spell
Tonight, I'm going, I'm going
I'm going to Hell, inside his spell

I was walking down among the graves
I heard a cry, my shadow is gone
Emptiness in my body, I felt so alone
Small black wings on my naked back
Now guess what I saw on one of the stones
I saw my soul, in a magical haze
It was all dressed up as a corpse in a wedding dress
Small black wings on my naked back
Now hear my prayer, beggin' for mercy
I'm living to die

Satan has taken his toll.

Death Kiss

Dark lady coming out at night there's no glory
Letís those legs on fire
Sheís goin to the well at night
Letís the mercy come and kill the kids
A shock

Bells ringing in the citadel itís a woman
People running girl haunted
Death kiss goin down on the head
And now sheís big enough the world is gonna die

Time slips away
You canít stop oh-ho
She may give us death kiss
She may give us a kiss

Everything is turned upside down
Thereís a child there divine
Dark lady taking care again yea
Now sheís walking back to hell with just her hands

Time slips away
You canít stop oh-ho
Itís death kiss

Aaahhh a little child
Aaahhh sheís gonna die

The child has lost itís way
The child is dead
Oh-oh sheís dead

Leave My Soul Alone

Oooooooooooooooooooh... yeah!!! Oh yeah! Now hear my song
Sirens calling, people leavin' the streets
The cops are comin', I don't know what I did

Why don't you get away, leavin' my soul alone
Maybe another day, you get a reason too
Why don't you get away, leavin' my soul alone
Maybe another day, you get a reason too

Oooooooooooooooooooh... yeah!!! Oh yeah! Oh hear me now
I'm running free, they won't get me alive
No one can see, I did it to survive

Why don't you get away, leavin' my soul alone
Maybe another day, you get a reason too
Why don't you get away, leavin' my soul alone
Maybe another day, you get a reason too

Oooooooooooooooooooh... yeah!!! Oh yeah! This is what I did
I killed a friend, for makin' love to my girl
This is the end, a bullet from my gun

Why don't you get away, leavin' my soul alone
Maybe another day, you get a reason too
Why don't you get away, leavin' my soul alone
Maybe another day, you get a reason too

I can't be alive............. KILL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

M.D.A. (Mission: Destroy Aliens)

Satan's veil, the night so red
Another creature sighted
The night's alright, The music's loud
The feeling is so right

And understand the chance
About his lair, the king has spoke
To be in there with him

Take away their breath
You can't resist my evil touch
Nature fights their bearing
