Mercyful Fate – Legend Of The Headless Rider lyrics

(Music by Hank Shermann Lyrics by
King Diamond)
"The Rise"
I'm an undertaker
I'm a ghost in the night
I'm a coffin shaker
This graveyard site is mine
Take a look at the sky, see that evil eye
Tonight the moon is cold as ice
Oh yeah...cold as ice...oh yeah
There's a black horse waiting
Will HE be on time?
The graveyard's shaking
Should I turn my eyes and walk away
Take a look at the sky, see that evil eye
Tonight the Headless Rider rides
Midnight...let the churchbell ring
It's midnight, All Hallows Eve
It's midnight, All Hallows Eve
I see him rising from his grave
I see him rising from his grave.......
"The Chase"
On All Hallows Eve, Never to forget
He rides the open field
In search of his head
My GOD, he's so grotesque
Should I stay?
My GOD, a scythe in his hand
NO WAY
He's coming...I'm running
He's coming...I'm running
Deep inside I know I'm the one
He's coming...I'm running
Deep inside I know this is wrong
Help me, I'm falling down
Solo: Shermann
I'm falling down...
I'm looking up...I'm in a grave
"Doomed"
In this hollow grave
I can smell that he's near
Will I ever never make it
Will I she'd a tear
Oh it's strange how everything's
Changing
Now my life is fading away
In this hollow grave
I see a bony hand
Don't you ever never take it
It's the key to his land
Oh it's strange how everything's
Changing
Now my life is fading away
Solo: Denner
Oh it's strange how everything's
Changing
Now my life is fading away
NO!
"Epilogue"
The mind in my headless body
Seems to be chained to the inside
I cannot move towards the light...
And as he rides away
Leaving me with this curse
I hear his laughter in the distance
Actually it's my laughter, he stole my head
Does this mean I'll be The One next year???
