They're walking by the nightThe moon has frozen blueLong black coats a shelter for the rainTheir load must get throughNow bats are leaving their treesThey're joining the callSeven satanic hell preachersHeading for the hallBringing the blood of a newborn childGot to succeed, if not it's Satan's fall

Way out in Egypt in the valley of kingsWhere the mummified pharaohs pretend dead in their sleepDon't touch, never ever stealUnless you're in for the killOr you've been hit by the curse of the pharaohsYes you've been hit and the curse is on you
The curse of the pharaohs can be so deadlyJust destroying your future, making it all shadyDon't touch, never ever stealUnless you're in for the killOr you'll be hit by the curse of the pharaohsYes you'll be hit and the curse is on you

I'm a corpse, I'm a corpseI'm a corpse without soul
He's taken, he's takenHe's taken his tollHe took it on me
I'm trapped, I'm trappedI'm trapped in his spell
I'm going, I'm goingI'm going to Hell
Inside his spell

Howl like a wolfAnd a witch will open the doorFollow me and meet our high priestessYeah, come, come into my covenYeah, and become Lucifer's child
Undress until you're nakedAnd put on this white coatTake this white cross and go to the center of the ringYeah, come, come into my covenYeah, and become Lucifer's child

I was born on the cemeteryUnder the sign of the moonRaised from my grave by the deadAnd I was made a mercenaryIn the legions of hellNow I'm king of pain, I'm insane
You know my only pleasureIs to hear you cryI'd love to hear you cryI'd love to see you die
And I'll be the firstTo watch your funeralAnd I'll be the last to leaveI'd love to hear you cry
And when you're down beyond the groundI'll dig up your body againAnd make love to shameOh lady cry, and say goodbyeOh lady cry, and say goodbyeYou've gotta say goodbye'Cause I will eat your mind
