MERCYFUL FATE LYRICS

1. Evil


I was born on the cemetery
Under the sign of the moon
Raised from my grave by the dead
I was made a mercenary
In the legions of hell
Now I'm king of pain, I'm insane

[SOLO: HANK]

You know my only pleasure
Is to hear you cry
I'd love to hear you cry
I'd love to feel you die
And I'll be the first
To watch your funeral
And I'll be the last to leave
I'd love to hear you cry

[SOLO: HANK]

And when you're down beyond the ground
I'll dig up your body again
And make love to shame
Oh lady cry, and say goodbye
Oh lady cry, and say goodbye

You've gotta say goodbye
'Cause I will eat your mind

[SOLO: MICHAEL & HANK & MICHAEL]


2. Curse Of The Pharaons


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

[SOLO: MICHAEL]

Now if you breaking 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

[SOLO: HANK]

The curse of the pharaohs can be so deadly
Or just destroying your future
Makin' 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


3. Into The Coven


[SOLO: MICHAEL]

Howl like a wolf
And a witch will open the door
Follow me and meet our High Priestess

Come, come into my Coven
And become Lucifer's Child

[SOLO: MICHAEL]

Undress until you're naked
And put on this white coat
Take this white cross and go to the middle of the ring

Come, come into my Coven
And become Lucifer's Child

[SOLO: HANK & MICHAEL]

Suck the blood from this unholy knife
Say after me: my soul belongs to Satan

Now, now you're into my Coven
You are Lucifer's Child
Into the Coven
Lucifer's Child


4. At The Sound Of The Demon Bell


[SOLO: MICHAEL]

Halloween is the night
The legend says the ghost will rise
On Halloween they can't redeem
A restless soul from an ancient scene
At the sound of the demon bell
Everything will turn to hell
Rise...rise...rise...it's Halloween
Rise...rise...the ghost will rise
Reconciled with powers of darkness
He'll uncover a saint
You won't believe? See for yourself

[SOLO: MICHAEL]

I hear bell
A sound from Hell, the demon bell
I see a light in shadow in between the graves
Swinging his sword of hate towards the gates of Heaven
"Beelzebur, Astaroth...bring me the Devil"
And as he says these words I can't believe my eyes

[SOLO: HANK]

Upon a burning cross
The "Lord" Jesus, Satan's above
It must be a shame
To see the Lord falling again

Now rise, reconcile with the Powers of Darkness
Uncover a saint
You better believe or see for yourself


5. Black Funeral


Bring the black box to the altar
Now raise your hands and do the sing
Oh hail Satan, Yes hail Satan
Lay down your swords, the evil star

It's a black funeral
She was a victim of my Coven

Open the black box to the altar
Her blood is still hot, so let it out

Oh hail Satan, Yes hail Satan
Now drink it, drink, forget that whore

It's a black funeral
She was a victim of my Coven

[SOLO: HANK & MICHAEL]


6. Satan's Fall


[SOLO: HANK]

They're walking by the night
The Moon has frozen blue
Long black coats a shelter from the rain
Their load must get through

Now bats are leaving their trees
They're joining the call
Seven Satanic Hell Preachers
Heading for the hall

Bringing the blood of a newborn child
They've got to succeed, if not it's Satan's fall

Home... come home
Evil messengers with blood stained wings
Home... come home
Home... come home

Is it Satan's fall?
No... it's Satan's call
Craniums high on stakes
It's Satan's epigraph
Something new can't erase... 666
They call him the beast

[SOLO: MICHAEL]

Use your demon eyes, uncover the disguise
Time is out... Yeah, I don't need your God
On the law of Satan
Pray and obey it forever
Oh the law of Satan

[SOLO: HANK & MICHAEL]

Innocent lovers... it's a lie

[SOLO: MICHAEL]

Iron fists won't do no good against the evil eyes
Of seven holy Hell Preachers, don't you even try
Now they cross the River Styx and see the Castle rise so high
Waiting on the other shore for Charon to arrive
A shape with horns and glowing eyes, Satan's still alive
He receives the sacrifice with evil laughs and pride
You better escape, you've got to escape
You cannot escape


7. Melissa


[SOLO: MICHAEL]

I'm kneeling in front of the altar
Satan's cross upon the wall
Strange emptiness, a crystal ball between two candles
Melissa has entered another life

Melissa, you were mine
Melissa, you were the light

She was a witch
Why did they take you away?

[SOLO: HANK]

Melissa, you were the queen of the night
Melissa, you were my light
I swear revenge on the priest
The priest must die
He must die in the name of Hell

[SOLO: MICHAEL]

Melissa, can you hear me?
Melissa, are you there?

Nothing is left outside at the stake
They're taken her away from me
