KING DIAMOND LYRICS

1. Eye Of The Witch


[Music by:King Diamond]

It's so cold inside on this summer night
Black clouds in the sky dancing before my eyes
I'm losing track of time

It's the eye of the witch
It's the eye of the witch

Thunder bring the rain, penetrate my brain
I am no more the same, that special night has come
losing track of time

It's the eye of the witch
The eye..the eye..the eye

Another glass of wine to heat blood mine
And as I look inside the necklace called 'The Eye'
I'm going back in time

It's the eye of the witch
It's the eye of the witch
The eye..the eye..the eye


2. The Trial (Chambre Ardente)


[Music by: King Diamond]

[La Reymie:]
Jeanne D'basson, You stand accused before the burning court
for practising witchcraft. Do you confess? We have ways
to make You talk How do You plead?

[Jeanne:]
I never did any harm to anyone. I don't believe this

[La Reymie:]
Lead the witch to the dungeon for the test...
bring out the glowing pins. Do it now

This is rotten to the core
Jeanne is naked on the floor
In the dungeon, they want more

[La Reymie:]
Oh Jeanne, you feel so good

La Reymie is touching her body
Wringled fingers all over her

[La Reymie:]
So this is how You make with the devil
we're gonna get You, witchy woman
we will never believe in You
so you better repent Your sins now

Sticking need'es into her skin yeah
In the dungeon blood is everywhere
Clowing need'es, need'es and pins yeah
She's getting weaker, no more pain to feel

[La Reymie:]
We will never believe in You
so you better repent Your sins now

We are the servants of GOD, we believe in the devil
and we've found his mark on You, confess witch

Thoushalt not suffer a witch to live
who soever lieth with a beast shall surely be put the death

[Jeanne:]
Never did I lie with any beast of thine
dogs or cats or goats, now leave My soul alone

[La Reymie:]
He that sacrificeth unto any god save the lord only
he shall be utterly destroyed

[Jeanne:]
'Now I hear, deceiving, lying tongues
never have I done no harm to anyone

But they dis not turn her loose
Horns and tails and cloven hoof
Can You tell Me where's the proof


3. Burn


[Music by: King Diamond]

The inquisition will take her to the hill
Ready for the kill, giving GOD his will
Everybody's there, none of them will care
Not a single prayer

Burn in the night, You're the devil's child
Burn in the night, You're the devil's child

Looking at the sky, soon the girl will die
Nobody will cry, hear her screaming why?
The priests are all in line, now they give the sign
Let the fire shine

Burn in the night, You're the devil's child
Burn in the night, You're the devil's child

They say the devil is here tonight
Then let him play his violin so wild

Higher, burning higher, flames will soon devour
Higher, burning higher, the smell of skin turned sour

Higher, burning higher, her legs are scorched by fire.
Ashes to ashes, I see a smile on their wicked faces

Burn in the night, You're the devil's child
Burn in the night, You're the devil's child

Lightning from the sky, magic's coming by
As her necklace flies height into her eye
The priests are all in line, now they give the sign
Let the fire die

Burned in the night, there are no remains
Burned in the night, just a magic chain


4. Two Little Girls


[Music by: King Diamond]

One little girl with dirty fingers
Playing with broken doll
As the other girl is lying
Digging deep into the ground
They seem to play an evil game
A game that doesn't have a name
Both of them are in the ashes
At the stake where witches burn

If only they could see beyond the ground they play on
The girls are laughing still, they think they're having fun
They should be far away, watching the sun go down

One little girl picked up a necklace
From the ashes of the witches
It had wings and then the other
cried out loud ^Now let me have it^
The other looked without a sign
Right into the witche's eye
The kind of horror that she saw
Made her choke for evermore

I wish they could have seen beyond the ground they played on
They would be laughing still, having the best of fun
They would be far away watching the sun go down


5. Into The Convent


[Music by: Andy la Rocque and Snowy Show]

Madeleine is running away from herself
Afraid of shame, she's crying out for help
To be clean again

No one cared and no one ever will
Her feelings were not shared, she wants to break the spell
and she's going

Into the convent, a smile on her face
Into the darkness to hide all her sins
Wondering what could go wrong in this place

[Father David:]
Welcome Sister, I'm Your chaplain
Down on Your knees and pray if You please
in This convent I'm Your master
Kiss My cross now dearest Sister
In the Name of ...

Madeleine is running away from herself
As father David said:
At comminion You must be undressed
Why did she go

Into the convent, a smile on her face
Into the darkness to hide all her sins
Wondering what could go wrong in this place

[Father David:]
Come along Sister Madeleine
Unfold Your wildest dreams, it's time to join and sing
Let the feast begin

That night she awoke to find The Eye
On the stone cold floor Why, She never ever would know why
But she put it on

Next day father David passed away
At communion time
Why, he never ever would know why
But he looked at The Eye

The eye of the necklace is laking it's toll
Inside the convent a soul will rejoice


6. Father Picard


[Music by: Pete Blakk]

A new chaplain has arrived
Madeleine and a few other nuns
At the convent will meet him tonight

[Father Picard:]
Wellcome to my quarters, do come inside
Wellcome dearest Sisters, come into the light

I'm Father Picard, I'm taking over
Things will be different here
you are the four GOD has chosen
To be his angels in white
Drink My sweet holy wine

^Oh yeah come on it's not a crime
From now on every sunday this time
You will attend this communion of mine

Father Picard is hiding something
A white powder for the wine

[Father Picard:]
I'm Father Picard, I'm taking over
Things will be different here
you are the four GOD has chosen
To be his angels in white
Drink My sweet holy wine

The nuns freak out, lust in their eyes
From now on every sunday this time
Father Picard's in control of their minds

Father Picard is hiding something
A white powder for the wine


7. Behind These Walls


[Music by: King Diamond]

Walking in the garden, picking flowers in the sun
Madeleine is on her own
She can't see any of the other nuns
Is she blind or is it her mind
What's going on? What's going on behind these walls...

All the birds are singing, but Madeleine can't hear their song
Memories of screams in the night
Moaning coming from below where the prison cells are cold
She does not understand what's going on

Now the bell is ringing, communion time has come again
Is Father Picard really a friend?
The bible in their hands remains they all the wine
The sour tasting blood of Christ
What's going on? What's going on behind these walls....

What's going on? Behind these walls....


8. The Meetings


[Music by: Andy la Rocque]

The night is black
7 figures walk the streets of Louviers
Picard is one, another two are priests
And then the nuns going to

The meetings held in secrecy
Evil company full of secrecy, again and again

The room is dark
Candies on the wall, they've been here before
The christian cross is hanging high above
The altar of GOD

Madeleine is at the gate
Hazy feeling in her brain
As the strangers come in to

The meetings held in secrecy
Evil company full of secrecy, again and again

The strangers brought
The sweetest little child, but something's wrong
The baby cries, someone here will die
And now the nuns pray

The meetings held in secrecy
Evil company full of secrecy, again and again

Madeleine and the other nuns
They hold the infant up to the cross
As father Picard and the priests
Approach with hammers and nails
There's no more to tell


9. Insanity


[Music by: Andy la Rocque]
[Instrumental]


10. 1642 Imprisonment


[Music by: Andy la Rocque]

Sacrifice, holy rites, secrecy and alter wine
Black candies burning low to the meetings again they go
Picard can't wait to take away another soul
Oh it's a shame, Picard was so insane

In the year of 1642, it came to an end
In 1642, imprisonment

Sacrifice, holy rites, secrecy and alter wine
Black death come this way, Father Picard will soon be going
He's ill, so sick, now his meetings are forever over
Oh it's a shame, they went along with his game

In the year of 1642, it came to an end
In 1642, imprisonment

Sacrifice, holy rites, secrecy and alter wine
The nuns can't take her blame
One after one they suffer a breakdown
Confession, confession, they confess to diabolic possession
Oh it's shame, even Madeleine has gone insane

In the year of 1642, Madeline was leaving hell in 1642, she
found freedom in her prison cell


11. The Curse


[Music by: King Diamond]

I know what You're thinking. I can see through you brain
I know what You're doing, even though I'm far away

The power I get from the chain is mine
Only I can use it
The power I get from the chain is mine
Only I can use it

It was only yesterday, thunder rolling by, breaking up the sky
And the rain was pouring down
Pounding on my brain, driving me insane
I was drinking wine again, oh yeah blame it on the wine

The curse of The Eye, it will take you back in time
If you look at The Eye, it will take you back in time

The curse of The Eye, it will take you back in time
If you look at The Eye, it will take you back in time

I know what You're thinking. I can see through you brain
I know what You're doing, even though I'm far away

I know there's a bad side to the power of the chain
I know I'll be going back in time once again

It was only the 1st of May, thunder rolling by, breaking up the sky
And the rain was pouring down
The inquisition came, I felt the pain
I had to relieve it all in just one day

The curse of The Eye, it will take you back in time
If you look at The Eye, it will take you back in time

The power I get from the chain is mine
Only I can use it
