Track Name: Terrifying Tales for Terrible Children
We are all doomed to die
Some sooner than others
Let's pass the time we have
With tales of terror

Pull up a headstone
Rest your weary bones
Let me read you something
From my moldering tome
Terrifying tales
For terrible children
Terrifying tales
For terrible children
Track Name: Baron Samedi, Loa of the dead
At the crossroads
Bottle of rum
Clutched tight
In his bony hand
Top hat on his skull
Tails and cane
He will lead you from this land


Your flesh will rot
In the ground
So you will not return
Dig your grave
Dig your grave

Baron Samedi Loa of the dead
Baron Samedi Loa of the dead


In the swamps
With the
Mist and moss
Hear the
Low obscenities
Naked
Writhing
On
The tomb
Dance the
Necrology

Sex and Cigars
Are his tribute
So you will not return

Dig your grave
Dig your grave

Baron Samedi Loa of the dead
Baron Samedi Loa of the dead
Track Name: All for the Love of Satan
When I was young I was told
How to get through the golden gates
Don't do this, don't do that
It all seemed kind of lame
Fuck that shit!

Populated by pious pricks
Heaven seems like hell
Why wait for some grand reward
Gonna get it now

She whispers in my ear
So soft and gently
She tells me to do what I will
She has set me free

All
For the love of Satan
Sex and blasphemy
All
For the love of Satan
Drugs and sodomy

I don't care if you’re happy
I don't care if you die
The world is here for my pleasure
I'm a selfish kind of guy

All
For the love of Satan
She will set you free
All
For the love of Satan
Sex and blasphemy
All
For the love of Satan
Power and money
All
For the love of Satan
It all belongs to me


Lick her skin
A psychotic reaction
The ecstasy
And my mind explodes
Wet and warm
Like the blood of a baby
It makes me fly
Through the skies at night

All
For the love of Satan
She has come for me
All
For the love of Satan
She has come for me
Track Name: Look to the Skies
Look to the skies
Silver disks of death
Harvester of doom
From beyond the stars
Look
TO
THE
SKIES

Watching us cool
And unsympathetic
Regarding our world
With envious eye
They’re here to cure
The virus that is us
Earth is all over
Kiss it goodbye

Metallic demons
With gelatinous pilots
Rip down buildings
With but a whim
Puny humans
Watch them run
Shooting rays of cold
They explode from within

Gaze into the void
Look to the skies
Harvester of doom
Look to the skies

We were complacent
In our dominion
Thought we were gods
But were nothing to them
We are no longer
The top of the food chain
To serve man
Is no benevolent tome

Gaze into the void
Look to the skies
Harvester of doom
Look to the skies

LOOK TO THE SKY
The anti-men are coming
RUN FOR YOUR LIVES
It’s hailing death
LOOK TO THE SKIES
People heed the warning
RUN FOR YOUR LIVES
Cover your head
LOOK TO THE SKIES
Space ships strafing
RUN FOR YOUR LIVES
There’s nothing left
LOOK TO THE SKIES
They eat your dogs and daughters
LOOK TO THE SKIES
LOOK TO THE SKIES


I've been probed
And experimented on
Like a child with a toy
It wants to see how it works
Torn apart
But somehow still alive

Gaze into the void
Look to the skies
Harvester of doom
Look to the skies
Track Name: Gods Walk Among Us
It sits upon its throne of meat
The cracked bell calls
Come forth the faithful
Out from the darkness

Greasy figures writhe and wrangle
Through oblique angles
A dimensional doorway
A garbage truck full of femurs rolls down
Cobble stone streets
Past stainless steel hook over hangs
Just like a proscenium
A river of blood trickles down a crack in the concrete

Fiorello Laguardia grins with the knowledge
Felippo Michilioh sharpens the knives
Fiorello Laguardia grins with the knowledge
Felippo Michilioh sharpens the knives


Children can you hear the song of the color
Yellow like piss
Brown like a bruise
Await the three-fisted hand of removal
The ancient ones turn in their slumber
You know deep down in your dreams what I say is true
WHAT I SAY IS TRUE


Gods walk among where you can't see them
Gods walk among us
Gods walk among us like germs on a doorknob
Gods walk among us
They whisper in darkness and wake from our dreams
Gods walk among us

Children can you hear the song of the color
Yellow like piss
Brown like a bruise
Await the three-fisted hand of removal
The ancient ones turn in their slumber
You know deep down in you dreams what I say is true

Gods walk among where you can't see them
Gods walk among us
Gods walk among us like germs on a doorknob
Gods walk among us
They whisper in darkness and wake from our dreams
Gods walk among us

In a hellfire dungeon a man with a saddle
Is side-stepping a millionaire under a rug
Hammering pins in the flesh of a minion
As onlookers masturbate in abject approval

Like a speakeasy you need the right password
To get past the giant goon at the door
Tell them that H.P Lovecraft sent you
If they give you lip you give them what for

Gods walk among where you can't see them
Gods walk among us
Gods walk among us like germs on a doorknob
Gods walk among us
They whisper in darkness and wake from our dreams
Gods walk among us

Ships from R'lyeh
Bring their cargo
Fresh from the sea
To your table

Red hook is teaming
With swarthy sub humans
Crouching in doorways
Scheming their schemes

Tentacled fingers
Caress rusted harps
Playing a tune
Far away and familiar


Walking the octagon
In the east river
Snug in my long coat
I laugh in my dreams

Gods walk among where you can't see them
Gods walk among us
Gods walk among us like germs on a doorknob
Gods walk among us
They whisper in darkness and wake from our dreams
Gods walk among us
Track Name: It's Alive!
Let loose the kites
Elevate the slab
Set the reactor to 5000 watts
Give me more power, is that all you got

I created this body
With my own two hands
Stitched him together
Man creates man
Wires and flesh
Steel and bone

It was my will and my will alone
They all called me MAD! But now they all know!

From these machines
I hurl my lightning
In the face of
Eternity
Your superstitions
They mean nothing
To someone like me

In the name of God
Now I know
Just what it feels like
To be GOD
Throw the switches
Pull the power
Down from heaven’s grasp

GIVE MY CREATION
LIFE!

My first sensation
Is electrocution
Like the sting
Of 1000 bees

All these voices
Are all of them mine
I can’t speak but
I can hear them
In my mind

I remember darkness
I remember flames
Because of something I did
Brought to life
Without a question
Against God’s plan
That all men must die
All men must DIE

YOU made me repulsive
You made me immortal
You never gave me a name
There is no afterlife,
There is no consequence
I have no conscience
You made me like this
You killed your god
Now I kill mine
We belong dead
We belong dead
Track Name: Werewolf of Brooklyn
Even a man who is pure at heart
And says his prayers by night
May turn into a wolf when the wolf’s bane blooms
And the autumn moon shines bright

Long ago
Off in the high lands
In the night
Far from my home land
In the dark
Something scratched my soul

Now there’s
Something inside me
Something
Decidedly not me
Trying
To wrest control

Can’t set it loose
Can’t set it free
Can’t lose my humanity

Tear off my flesh and reveal my true self
Moaning at midnight I howl

In the moonlight I cry
In the moonlight you scream
Hunt! Kill! Feed!

In the moonlight I cry
In the moonlight you scream
Hunt! Kill! Feed!

Back Home
Back home in Brooklyn
Late night
Riding the F train
Moonlight
Shining on my skin

I thought it was a dream
Thought it wasn’t real
Or did I just want this to happen

Tear off my flesh and reveal my true self
Moaning at midnight I howl

Trapped inside this box
There’s no place for you to run
Hunt! Kill! Feed!

In the moonlight I cry
In the moonlight you scream
Hunt! Kill! Feed!

I wake up in Coney
My clothes are all torn
Blood on my breath
What the hell have I done

In 4 weeks it happens
I will kill again
Lock Me Away

If I could kill myself I
I could stop this madness
Please Kill Me

You don’t understand, this
This is not delusion
Please Kill Me

It’s scratching to get out
You should have listened to me
Behold the moon rises in the night
Track Name: We'll Meet Again
So glad you all stopped by
It warms my blackened heart
To tell
Terrifying tales
To terrible children
Terrifying tales for terrible children

The sun begins to rise
Burns away the shadows of the night
I will tuck you into your grave
For a long day’s sleep
Don’t worry
I’ll be around
I’m your friend
But not like the others

From grade school to the grave
When you’re in your bed alone and afraid
The wet stab of regret
‘Cause you know this is all you get

You will carry me
Just like a tumor
In dreams I walk with you
Forever

We'll meet again
When dark clouds chase away sunny skies

We'll meet again
You won't know where but I'll know when
We'll meet again we'll meet again

On some dark and lonely road
In the basement of your fears

We'll meet again
You won't know where but I know when
We'll meet again

The voices in your head
That might be me
All those things you think you see
We’ll meet again
Your ever present friend
We’ll meet again

When all your days turn to dust
When your iron turns to rust
We'll meet again
You won’t know where but ill know when
We'll meet again
We'll meet again

You won’t know where
You won’t know when
Your ever present friend
We’ll meet again
