1. The Whore of Babylon

THERE'S A WOMAN CAUSING SHAME
TWO SACRED THOUGHTS SHE HOLDS
THE CHALICE WITH EVERY MAN'S SIN

HER ALABASTER SKIN IS COVERED
WITH PURPLE AND GOLD
THERE SHE RIDES ON A DESOLATE SOUL
HER NEFARIOUS ACTIONS AND
FORNICATIONS ARE KNOWN
BY THIS WORLD AND THE KINGS
WHO SHALL COME
HER INFLUENCE WILL GROW
AS SHE SOWS THE SEEDS OF SIN

THERE SHE IS
THE WHORE OF BABYLON
RIDING WITH THE DEVIL
SHE WILL LIVE FOREVER
HAIL THE WHORE
THE WHORE OF BABYLON
SPREADING SINS AND SHAME
FOREVER MORE
THE WHORE OF BABYLON

MAN BUILT THEIR EMPIRES
ALL OVER THE WORLD, THE WHORE
BUILT THEM TO CRUMBLE AND FALL

HER LEGACY FOLLOWS
THE NEW GENERATION TO COME

THERE SHE IS
THE WHORE OF BABYLON
RIDING WITH THE DEVIL
SHE WILL LIVE FOREVER
HAIL THE WHORE
THE WHORE OF BABYLON
SPREADING SIN AND SHAME
FOREVER MORE
THE WHORE OF BABYLON

AS THE SUN COMMANDS THE SHADOW
TO DARKEN THE WORLD SHE FORCES
OUR CITIES TO FALL TO DECAY

AND WITHOUT KNOWING
YOU HOLD THE AMBER OF SIN

THERE SHE IS
THE WHORE OF BABYLON
RIDING WITH THE DEVIL
SHE WILL LIVE FOREVER
HAIL THE WHORE
THE WHORE OF BABYLON
RIDING WITH THE DEVIL
SHE WILL LIVE FOREVER

THE WHORE OF BABYLON




2. Symphony of the Damned

IN NOMANS LAND BETWEEN
HEAVEN AND HELL
MADNESS IS CHANTING MY NAME
THOUSAND SOULS
ERRATIC IN LIFE
CHAINED IN NOPLACE
BEREAVED THEIR HEAVEN

OUT OF TUNE NOISES
PULSATING IN MY MIND
A FATAL OPERA
INFERNO OF SOUNDS
MY CONSCIENCE FADING
FADING

NOWHERE IN TIME
YESTERDAY IS TOMORROWS TODAY
YESTERDAY IS TOMORROWS TODAY
SHADELESS FACES
SOULS WITH NO NAME
STANDING HYPNOTIZED
GOING INSANE
HEARING HELPESSLY - LISTEN

TO THE SYMPHONY OF THE DAMNED
SYMPHONY OF THE DAMNED
SYMPHONY OF THE DAMNED
SYMPHONY OF THE DAMNED

I SEARCH FOR LIGHT THAT
I CAN'T FIND
I SEARCH FOR SHADOWS IN THIS
LIFE BEHIND
FROM SOUTH OF HEAVEN THEY ARE
CALLING ME
THROUGH THIS HYSTERICAL
PSYCHIC CUSTODY
I FEEL HANDS OF COMPACT NOTHING
TIGHTEN ITS GRIP ON ME

SYMPHONY OF THE DAMNED
SYMPHONY OF THE DAMNED
SYMPHONY OF THE DAMNED
SYMPHONY OF THE DAMNED

CORRIDORS BLINDLY
I CAN SEE THEM
FLASHING BY IN THE SHADOWS
OF MY CONSCIENCE
THERE'S A VOICE
CALLING FOR MY SOUL
IN MY MIND
THE SENSES OVERFLOWING
TO A PEAK PAST
OF WHAT IS HUMAN
AS A GOD I SPREAD MY WING I FLY

I'M ALIVE
I GOT THE FIRE
GOT THE RAGE
LIKE A GIANT BIRD OF PRAY
I AM THE NIGHT
I'M THE DARK
I'M THE RAVEN
I'M THE ONE
THAT YOU WOULD CALL
DESCENDED FROM THE SKY

LIKE TEARS LOST IN THE RAIN
THAT MUSIC FADES...

I SWEEP OVER PARADISE
WHERE THIS GOD RULES IN DISGUISE
FURTHER ON TO A HIGHER PLANE
WHERE I'M PROMISED TO BE BORN AGAIN

LIKE TEARS LOST IN THE RAIN
THAT MUSIC FADES...

...THAT SYMPHONY OF THE DAMNED
SYMPHONY OF THE DAMNED
SYMPHONY OF THE DAMNED
SYMPHONY OF THE DAMNED




3. Fatal Illusions

STARING THROUGH A DUSTY WINDOW
FEEL THE COLD FROM BARREN WALLS
INSIDE HIS MIND THE VOICES CALL

A PORTRAIT HANGING FACE BETRAYING
WICKED GLEAMING EYES FROM HELL
THE PORTRAIT KNOWS HIS NAME
IS HE INSANE

NOWHERE TO RUN
FROM THE THINGS THAT HE HAS DONE
SALLY SCREAMS HIS NAME IN HIS MIND
SALLYS EYES
THE PORTRAIT TELLS NO LIES
SALLY WANTS HIS LIFE

SHE WEEPS THROUGH THE DARK HORIZONS
THROUGH THE ASTRAL PLANES TO EARTH
SALLY WANTS REVENGE A SECOND BIRTH

FROM THE PICTURE EYES SHE SEES HIM
SEES THE MAN THAT TOOK HER LIFE
HE'S GOING MAD HE'S LOST THE REALITY

NOWHERE TO RUN
FROM THE THINGS THAT HE HAS DONE
SALLY SCREAMS HIS NAME IN HIS MIND
SALLY'S EYES
THE PORTRAIT TELLS NO LIES
SALLY WANTS HIS LIFE
HE'S SCREAMING

HELP ME
SALLY'S CALLING
SAVE ME
INSANITY
HELP ME
SALLY'S CALLING
SAVE ME
INSANITY

SHE CAUSES HIM PAIN BY
HAUNTING HIM INSANE
HYSTERICAL LAUGHS
SHE FORCES HIM TO HIS GRAVE

FEEL THE COLD FROM BARREN WALLS
HIS BODY HOLDS HIS SOUL
FOR ALL ETERNITY HE'S SOLD
CRYING FOR SOME PEACE OF MIND
HE'S CRAWLING ON THE FLOOR
TOO HIGH TO REACH
TOO LOW TO FALL

NOWHERE TO RUN
FROM THE THINGS THAT HE HAVE DONE
SALLY SCREAMS HIS NAME IN HIS MIND
SALLY'S EYES
THE PORTRAIT TELLS NO LIES
SALLY WANTS HIS LIFE
HE'S SCREAMING

HELP ME
SALLY'S CALLING
SAVE ME
INSANITY
HELP ME
SALLY'S CALLING
SAVE ME
INSANITY




4. Last Rites

HE LAYS AWAKE
WITH HIS EYES CLOSED
AS HE THINKS OF ETERNITY

THE LAST MEAL SERVED ON SILVER PLATES
LEFT A TASTE OF COLD STEEL

HIS MEMORIES HAUNT HIM
THOUGH WHAT'S PAST
IS SO FAR AWAY

HE'S DROWNING IN FEAR OF DEATH
BUT DOES ANYONE GIVE A DAMN

FIRST LIGHT OF THE MORNING
WILL WITNESS HIS FALL
AT THE END OF A ROPE HE'LL HANG
FEEDING THE CROWS

AS HE WALKS TO THE GALLOW'S POLE
THE PRIEST READS HIS LAST RITES
TWELVE FEET TO THE GROUND
THERE'S JUST SIX MORE TO GO

FIRST LIGHT OF THE MORNING
WILL WITNESS HIS FALL
AT THE END OF A ROPE HE'LL HANG
FEEDING THE CROWS

FROM THE END OF THE GALLOW
TO THE LAND OF THE DEAD
HE'S JOINED WITH THE HALLOWED
IN THE LAND OF THE DEAD




5. Lullaby

I'M YOUR NIGHTMARE
LONGING JUST FOR YOU
YOU CAN HEAR MY BREATH
AND I CAN HEAR YOURS TO

LIKE A CREEPING SHADOW
HIDING FROM THE DAY
WAIT UNTIL THE DARKNESS
TO TAKE YOUR LIFE SO PRAY
YOU CAN NOT RUN
YOU CAN NOT HIDE
I'M GONNA CATCH YOU IF YOU TRY

YOU'RE LONGING FOR THE MORNING
AND FOR THAT SPECIAL LIGHT
IT MAKES YOU FEEL SAFE
BUT IT'LL BE ANOTHER NIGHT

YOUR BLOOD IS BOILING
IT MAKES YOU PARALYSED
YOU ARE MY ONLY
YOU ARE MY SACRIFICE

YOU CAN NOT RUN
YOU CAN NOT HIDE
I'M GONNA CATCH YOU IF YOU TRY




6. The Secret Doctrine




7. Tequila

THE DAY AFTER
THE NIGHT BEFORE
REMEMBER NOTHING
AS I FACE THE FLOOR
A POUNDING HEADACHE
A SMELL OF DEATH
I GUESS IT MUST BE MY OWN BREATH

REMEMBER GIRLS
AND PLENTY OF BOOZE
AND MY TEQUILA DESIRE

STRIPTEASE
THE METAL POLICE
THEN I REMEMBER NOTHING MORE
BECAUSE I WAS
PASSED OUT ON TEQUILA - BLACKOUT

RISE AND SHINE, A STUPID PUKE
OH, SHIT I'M FREEZING AND OH GOD
I'M NUDE
I,VE BEEN ARRESTED THAT'S FOR SHURE
ELSE I WOULDN'T FACE
THIS GODDAMN FLOOR

REMEMBER GIRLS
AND PLENTY OF BOOZE
AND MY TEQUILA DESIRE

STRIPTEASE
THE METAL POLICE
THEN I REMEMBER NOTHING MORE
BECAUSE I WAS
PASSED OUT ON TEQUILA - BLACKOUT




8. Catacombs

THE FALLEN CHILDREN
AGAINST EVIL THEY STAND
GATHERED TOGETHER
HAND IN HAND
TOO YOUNG TO AVOID THEIR DREAMS
OF REALITY
TOO LATE TO SAVE THEIR PEACE OF MIND
THEIR MISSION WAS THEIR FATE
TOMORROW IT CAN BE TOO LATE

I SEE WHAT YOU DO
WE'LL MEET IN THE CATACOMBS
I CAN READ YOUR MIND
YOU'LL PAY IN THE CATACOMBS
KILL MY PRACTICAL JOKES
BUT MEET ME IN THE CATACOMBS

DOWN IN THE BARRENS
IT'S YOUR TURN TO TELL
FLASHBACKS, FLASHBACKS
ON NEIBOLT STREET TWENTYNINE
TOO LATE TO TURN BACK

ROOMS ARE MOVING
REDUCING AND GROWING
HOLD TOGETHER WHATEVER YOU DO
THIS IS ONE OF ITS DWELLS
THIS IS A DREAM TAKEN FROM HELL

BEHIND THE DOOR
TO THE BATHROOM
THEY ARE SHURE THAT
IT STANDS THERE WAITING TO KILL

I SEE WHAT YOU DO
WE'LL MEET IN THE CATACOMBS
I CAN READ YOUR MIND
YOU'LL PAY IN THE CATACOMBS
KILL MY PRACTICAL JOKES
BUT MEET ME IN THE CATACOMBS

COME YOUR FRIENDS ARE DYING
DOWN HERE
YOU SHALL FACE ME AND
FACE YOUR FEAR
AND I KNOW YOU SHALL DIE
FOR MY PEACE OF MIND AND MY LIFE
CRY - FOR THE PAIN I'LL GIVE YOU
SO PLEASE TRY TO COME NEAR
CAUSE I AM YOUR FEAR

THERE IS THE SPIDER
GIVE HER A PUNSH
WITH YOUR MINDCRAFT
FOR THE FUTURE
DON'T GO TOO FAR
BEWARE OF THE WEB
WE MUST KILL HER ONCE FOR ALL

I SEE WHAT YOU DO
WE'LL MEET IN THE CATACOMBS
I CAN READ YOUR MIND
YOU'LL PAY IN THE CATACOMBS
KILL MY PRACTICAL JOKES
BUT MEET ME IN THE CATACOMBS

PENNYWISE, PENNYWISE
THE ALIEN FROM THE PAST
PENNYWISE, PENNYWISE




9. War Without End

FORTY TONS OF ARMORED DEATH
STILL IS ROLLING
ONWARD THROUGH THEIR TRENCHES
DAMNATION BELL IS TOLLING

A WAR WITHOUT SURVIVORS
DESTRUCTION IS AT HAND
MORBID MAD MUTATIONS
WALKING DESOLATED LAND

IN THE END MANKIND
PAY THE PRICE
OF POWERHUNGRY NATIONS
AND GENERALS' LIES

WAR WITHOUT END
WAR
WAR
WITHOUT END
WAR WAR WAR

KILLING FIELDS THAT NEVER END
OPEN GRAVES REMAIN
DEATH LURKS IN ALL THAT LIVES
A BARREN TOMB FOR US IS CALLING

FORTY TONS OF ARMORED DEATH
STILL IS ROLLING
ONWARD THROUGH THEIR TRENCHES
DAMNATION BELL IS TOLLING

IN THE END MANKIND
PAY THE PRICE
OF POWERHUNGRY NATIONS
AND GENERALS' LIES

WAR WITHOUT END
WAR
WAR
WITHOUT END
WAR WAR WAR




10. Crazy (bonus track)

[Nazareth Cover]

Can you help me?
Help me get out of this place
Slow sedation
Ainít my style, it ainít my face
Givin' me a number
Nine, seven, eight

Gimme back my name

Crazy
But I donít think that I can see
You can hear them
Only talkin' at me
Livin' on the outside
Lookin' inside to be free

Feel so good for awhile
You donít know why
Cry while you lie
You are true...you are true...you are true

Save me
Is there nothing that I can use
Please believe me
I conform into your views
Promise you anything
Watch me cryin' out to you

Gimme back my name
Let me make my statement

Crazy
Crazy crazy
Crazy... He's a suitable case for treatment
Crazy crazy
Crazy... He's a suitable case for treatment
[repeat until end]




11. Captain Howdy (bonus track)

[Twisted Sister Cover]

Oh, it's so nice to see you all inside my dreamy little world
And it's so nice to be with all you lovely little boys and girls
Make yourselves comfortable, my place is so devine
Don't you think I'm wonderful? Say yes, you're on my time

Stay away
From Captain Howdy
Stay away
From Captain Howdy

Don't try to leave, the doors are locked and only I have got the key
Forget the windows, they're nailed shut and boarded up so you can't see
You'll love the light show, I'm sure you'll think it's swell
When they go off, you're welcome to my living hell

Stay away
From Captain Howdy
Just stay away
From Captain Howdy

Come here, my sweet
Let me help you with that
There, that's better

I'm overjoyed at all the games I'm playing here with you today
But I'm so sad the party's over and we can no longer play
You think you're going home to your own little bed
But that's impossible, you can't sleep when you're dead

Stay away
From Captain Howdy
Just stay away
From Captain Howdy
[repeat until end]




12. Strange Way (bonus track)

[Kiss Cover]

Well, it's a Strange Way
The way you look at me
And it's a hard time
Time you've been givin' me
Come on and open up
Open up to me
So you can realize
That I could set you free

Strange Ways, twisted days
Strange Ways, twisted days

Well, it's a strange place
That you've been livin' in
And it's a strange line
You've been deliverin'
I think I like it
But I'm not really sure
Don't wanna to fight it
Just wanna feel some more

Strange Ways, twisted days
Strange Ways, twisted days

Strange Ways, twisted days
Strange Ways, twisted days




13. Cocaine (bonus track)

[J.J. Cale Cover]

If you want to hang out, you've got to take her out, Cocaine
If you want to get down, get down on the ground, Cocaine

She dont lie, she dont lie, she dont lie, Cocaine

If you got bad news, you wanna to kick 'em blues, Cocaine
When your day is done and you wanna run, Cocaine

She dont lie, she dont lie, she dont lie, Cocaine

If your thing is gone and you want to ride on, Cocaine
Dont forget this fact, that you can't get it back, Cocaine

She dont lie, she dont lie, she dont lie, Cocaine
