MORTUARY OATH - Once Upon A Dreary...


Obal


1. THE FUNERAL CANDLE

Memories of the epitaph, the coffin alone in the church
An empty room, visitation to the dead, a faithful candle resides nearby
The soft glow no sign of life, shines on a dead face of white
This haunting shadow of light, it warms the spirit passing on
Mother looked inside when no one was around
Staring at the ghastly face distorted and so pale
Things are different in the empty, things you can't explain
Mother heard a whisper, did she hear the candle speak?
Every night, the candle stays burning bright
Just like eyes staring into the night
Every night, the candle stays burning bright
Just like eyes staring into the night
Bless the dead, it shines their last dignity
By their side, the candle burns faithfully
Memories of the epitaph, an empty room visitation to the dead
Mother dear, please have some respect
Keep your hands off the deceased!
Every night, the candle stays burning bright
Just like eyes staring into the night



2. ...SAID THE SCARLET WOMAN

It was on a Sunday late in the afternoon
I had awoken from my illness sleep
A haze covered figure with window light shining through
It startled me, I thought I was dreaming
Feeling so weak, I arose from my bed, the spirit stood watching me
Twas a woman draped all in red, was she here to ease my pain?
Sorrow and fear, my feelings so strange, she motions me then started to say
Said the scarlet woman, with light shining through
Said the scarlet woman, tears in her eyes
Said the scarlet woman, she speaks to the dead
Said the scarlet woman, now she speaks to me
She whispered words I could not hear, an invitation to the grave
In my moment of dying, by my side she would be near
She covered up my glazed over stare, she turned away and started to say
Said the scarlet woman, with light shining through
Said the scarlet woman, those tears in her eyes
Said the scarlet woman, she speaks to the dead
Said the scarlet woman, now she speaks to me



3. 1640

Princess of the eternal dead
Time keeps her behind stone walls, just as the elders once did
The dusty crimson stains, still on the castle floor
A melody of screams, I remember those sunset dreams, sunset dreams!
I can still remember mother's flowing gown and those she entised would
End up underground when moon light touches skin, blood flows once again
Return to the eve of 1000 nights in Hell
The castle tells a tale of an evil curse inside
A time when blood was like wine such madness seemed untrue
Sometimes I still can hear her clawing away at the castle wall
Princess of the eternal dead
Time keeps her behind stone walls just as the elders once did
The dusty crimson stains, still on the castle floor
A melody of screams, I remember those sunset dreams
Return to the eve of 1000 nights in Hell
The castle tells a tale of an evil curse inside
A time when blood was like wine such madness seemed untrue
Condemned her soul to eternal flames!



4. BURNING THE ALTAR

The candles in the old church, are burning once again
I wonder what goes on inside, why do they worship through the night?
I can see their shadows, dancing through painted glass
Curiosity took me by the hand, so I broke into the church
Oh yeah yeah, I broke into that old church
I saw candles and torches burning, there was blood on their robes
A black mass, a sacrifice, there's something evil inside this place
They worshiped through the night, the candles made an eerie light
Oh how strange, oh so weird!
I heard them screaming, they called out his name
We are your servants they chanted, they all stared into the flame
I could not stay hidden, my presence given away
They said I wasn't allowed here, now, you must leave!
Burning the altar, or there will be another night
Witness the splendor, the blood flows with delight
Burning the altar, or there will be another night
You're not allowed, you're not one of us, leave from this place, or your soul will be
You're not allowed, you're not one of us, leave from this place, or your soul will be
You're not allowed, you're not one of us, leave from this place, or your soul will be
I've seen the Devil here tonight, staring through the eyes of emptiness
Demons shall rise once again, children will all know his name
While they dance with the dead, the old church will burn once again!
The candles in the old church, are burning once again
I can see their shadows, dancing through painted glass
As I witnessed the sacrifice, the things I saw I could not believe
That poor girl never once screamed
You're not allowed, you're not one of us, leave from this place, or your soul will be
You're not allowed, you're not one of us, leave from this place, or your soul will be
You're not allowed, you're not one of us, leave from this place, or your soul will be
You're not allowed, you're not one of us, leave from this place, or your soul will be
Burning the altar, or there will be another night
Witness the splendor, the blood flows with delight
Burning the altar, or there will be another night



5. THE BOARDED WINDOW

Do you remember what the pain was like in there?
All those sleepless nights too scared to close your eyes
With the shadows in the hallway, you never were alone
Still burns, just like it did the night you ran away
Nightmares, you're scarred for life and they won't go away
The cellar, that's where the evil games started from
Incest, the murdered children after daddy's touch
The windows are boarded shut for no eyes to see, what pain has left behind, no!
Still burns, just like it did the night you ran away
Nightmares, you're scarred for life and they won't go away
The cellar, that's where the evil games started from
The years, have passed away but now you're coming home



6. MEMORIES OF THE ATTIC

A nightmare that stared as a child's game
Memories I wish I could forget now
Years ago I would play up in the attic
Voices up there would call me in the night
Every night I would go to her she's speak to me in that raspy voice
She told me stories of children and spirits, dancing together in the old cemetery
Up in the attic the coffin still remains
Voices start to haunt me, I've come to visit her once again
In the year she was buried, twas lste in the fall
But granny's poor ghost was seen walking the halls
Exhumed, by the family, for the attic
Making them all go crazy, remember old dark lake?
So I returned to the abandoned house, I feared, tonight, I would see her again
The old creeky stairs that lead me to the place
Where her coffin was kept, I use to hid inside
The candle would flicker, I felt her presence near
Chained to the attic, the casket nailed shut
Up in the attic the coffin still remains
i can hear her voice again, in her raspy tone, she calls out my name
So near to insanity, I won't let this happen again
As I let the candle light turn to flames, her words then turned into screams
As I watched the old house burn, I realized, she was still inside of me
Deep inside of me



7. RESURRECTION MARY

In 1934, only 21, a tragic serenade, took their dear Mary
Laid to rest in the town's cemetery
We thought she was a piece, but Mary couldn't sleep
Her spirit still alive, seeking the living to dance with her
But I've seen Mary, she walks through the graves at night
In her flowing white gown, she dances with me at midnight
Those who've witnessed her splendor retell the story
How she wanders the graves, her spirit confused in the afterlife
The moonlit glow that follows her from the grave her spirit denies
We thought she was at peace, poor Mary couldn't sleep
Her spirit still alive seeking the living to dance with her
But I've seen Mary, she walks through the graves at night
In her flowing white gown she dances with me at midnight



8. THE HAUNTING

I keep hearing voices deep within these walls
I hear what sounds like children in tears
These eerie confrontations, I can't explain
Things seem to move or levitate
I begin to question my sanity
I fear the house is haunted, something won't leave me be
The priest came to bless the house but left so suddenly
At night when I close my eyes I can feel them watching me
But when I open them again there is nothing there to see
Damn those voices anyway, why do they choose this house to stay?
I hear them laughing but no ones there, except that moving rocking chair
The wall had such an evil smell, in time nearly made me sick
But stranger even still, the voices came from inside
I must've been insane but still I had to know
I found the old hatchet down in the cellar
Then I began tearing apart the walls
The ghastly sight that I saw, hanging in the wall
The remains of small children, hung there on nails



9. NIGHT OF THE HEADLESS

The moon is full again, it's another hallows eve
The spirits dance on through the night, I'm walking that old forest path
I find myself alone again, I know there is nothing that I should fear
The spirits are dancing tonight, my sanity weakens, among the shadows
The night of the headless, my fears come to life
The night of the headless, Eyes made of candles fire
The night of the headless, a black horse he rides
I hear laughter through the forest, and the sound of a carriage closing near
The night of the headless, the night
The night of the headless, the night
The night of the headless, the night
The night of the headless, the night
The moon is full again, it's another hallows eve
The spirits dance on through the night, I'm walking that old forest path
Into the night don't lose your head now
Beware of his shadows in the moon light
He can deceive all the things you see
Searching for a head every Halloween
The night of the headless, the night



10. THE HERETIC

Woman, of the empty room, unholy acts of desire
She spits upon the cross, laughing in demonic tones
Mother, the priest is on his way, I called him today
The priest acme with his holy water hoping to save her poor soul
Nearly fainted at the ghastly sight, exposing herself to the priest
Unholy acts of desire, desecration of the cross
The cross is inside, the cross is inside of her
The cross is inside, deep inside of her
Mother has got the Devil's eyes, it's like she doesn't know me at all
These words of lust, she speaks of Lucifer
The priest grabbed my hand and took me outside
Mother's very sick he said, you must'nt be deceived
She's upstairs in her room talking of 666
The cross is inside, the cross is inside of her
The cross is inside, deep inside of her
Mother, come back to us! Mother, come back to us!
