MERCYFUL FATE LYRICS

1. A Dangerous Meeting


Tonight the circle is meeting again
Who will be the first to fall in trance
In here nobody is sensing the rain
Tonight the spirit will glance
So as they're approaching ghostly hour
Seven people here are joining hands
They think they know the spirit to appear
Contact, the table starts to dance
Time is standing still
It's a dangerous meeting
They're gonna get themselves killed

[SOLO: M.DENNER]

Tonight the circle is broken forever
Seven people dead within a trance
In here nobody is sensing the rain
Tonight seven souls are reaching hell
Time was standing still
The meeting is over
Their journey is on
Oh, they should have known
Not to play with the powers of Hell
Some people have lost their way
Some people have lost their mind


2. Nightmare


Am I awake or is this just a dream?
I had a nightmare, some sort of vision
I was stuck in an empty room
When the black book appeared
The light were dim but the face in the book
Was in daylight
Eyes of fire staring at me
It's the eyes of a woman
And see on her spirit
Steppin' out of the book

[SOLO: M.DENNER]

I hear her callin' for her coven to come
There's a light in the doorway
Entering shadows whose number is 13
They do the sign of devil's seed
I'm in the middle of a magic ring
Somebody tell me what's going on
"Only we know the secret
Of the curse that you bear"
Listen, they sing, the coven sings
Night after night, hear them sing
Now they're still here, I can hear them again
Night after night, I have this dream
"You're only living on borrowed
Time from your life"

[SOLO: H.SHERMANN]


3. Desecration Of Souls


Stay away white magician
Young lovers and mourning wife
You're not welcome on our land
So I speak for the dead

[SOLO: M.DENNER]

Magic circles drawn after midnight
Around graves to be opened
He'll ask the wand to raise a body
He'll ask the questions and
He'll burn the remains
It's desecration of souls
In their holy lair

[SOLO: M.DENNER]

Copulation in the night
Two shadows upon a grave
Screams of pleasure,
Screams of pain
Young lovers you must be insane
It's desecration of souls
In their holy lair
So I say again stay away
It's desecration of souls

[SOLO: H.SHERMANN, M.DENNER]

Dying flowers upon the grave
Of a husband who's lost his maid
She's there on duty and the tears she cries
They don't belong where the flowers lie
It's desecration of souls
In their holy lair
So I say again stay away
It's desecration of souls

[SOLO: M.DENNER]


4. Night Of The Unborn


[SOLO: H.SHERMANN]

I forbid you entrance here
You step on hollow ground
Don't you see this chapel
Shut up! Hold your tongue
They must rest in silence
It's the rebirth of the unborn
Tonight is the night
The spirits of the unborn will play tonight
The unborn will play tonight
They will dance around the chapel
It's a feast for the dead
They will make a fool of the priest
And the dead boy's choir will sing
A song for the dead
To whom life just begun
Life of the unborn
This one's for the unborn

[SOLO: M.DENNER]

Did you know?
13 day have come and gone
Since we had the first of June
The spirits of the unborn
Will play tonight
Forgive them, they didn't die

[SOLO: M.DENNER, H.SHERMANN, M.DENNER, H.SHERMANN, M.DENNER]


5. The Oath


By the symbols of the creator
I swear henceforth to be
A faithful servant of his most
Puissant archangel
The Prince Lucifer
Whom the creator designated as his regent
And Lord of this World
I deny Jesus Christ...the deciever
And I abjure the Christian faith
Holding in contempt all of it's works

[SOLO: M.DENNER, H.SHERMANN]

As a being now possessed of a human body
In this world I swear to give my full
Allegiance to it's lawfull master,
To worship him our
Lord Satan and no other
In the name of Satan, the ruler of Earth
Open wide the gates of Hell
And come forth from the abyss
By these names: Satan, Leviathan,
Belial, Lucifer
I will kiss the goat

[SOLO: H.SHERMANN, M.DENNER]

I swear to give my mind
My body and soul unreservedly
To the furtherance of our
Lord Satan designs
Do what thou wilt shall be the
Whole of the law
As it was at the beginning
Is now and ever shall be
World without end Amen


6. Gypsy


This magic winter night I see a light
Again I hear that tune, some sort of croon
Oh no, no, no, oh, my brain.
I see them gypsy waggons left in the snow
Oh, I must see that lady, I have to know
Gypsy woman, let me inside
They say you know the secret, secret of time
So gaze into your crystal and tell me
All you see
Gypsy woman, let me know
"Oh, my son, you were never gone
You're the Devil's child and so am I"

[SOLO: M.DENNER, H.SHERMANN]

Gypsy now I know you're not my mother
You're a part of my soul,
It's dear for all to see
Oh no, no, no, I am you
Gypsy you're inside of me


7. Welcome Princess Of Hell


I turn off the lights, we like darkness
Now you call my name, you finally came
Even in the night I see the light shining bright
I'm alone with my friends
Now I see you clear, we raise our glasses
Welcome to my house princess of Hell
Even in the night I see the light shining bright
I'm alone with my friends
I will bring in here my crystal ball
I will gaze, you will know what is to come

[SOLO: M.DENNER, H.SHERMANN]

I'm amazed of what I've seen tonight
I want tell a living soul they would not believe
Welcome princess of Hell
Never will I break the oath I gave
I hail you again in Satan's name
Princess of Hell
Even in the night I see the light shining bright
I'm alone with my friends
We will be back, we will be back


8. To One Far Away


[Instrumental]


9. Come To The Sabbath


Come, come to the Sabbath
Down by the ruined bridge
Witches and demons are coming
Just follow the magic call
Come, come to the Sabbath
Down by the ruined bridge
Later on the master will join us
Called from the heart of Hell
First we light up the fire
And then we hail our Lord
Two candles, a black and white
Are placed upon the altar
North, South, East and West
And so we clean the air
High priestess invoking the Devil
Infernal a names are spoken

Come to the Sabbath, Sabbath...
The ceremony's proceeding
It's time to grant your wishes
And evil curse on the priest
Who took the life of Melissa
Now we must close up the ritual
Lead the Enochian key
And so it will be done, Amen...now come
Come to the Sabbath, Sabbath...

[SOLO: H.SHERMANN]

If you say heaven I say a castle of lies
You say forgive him I say revenge
My sweet Satan you're the one
