All songs copyright 1986 except "I Ain't Superstitious" copyright 1963. .....Wake Up Dead I sneak in my own house...it's four in the morning I've had too much to drink...said I was out with the boys I creep in my bedroom...I slip into bed I know if I wake her, I'll wake up...DEAD! I wonder, will she find out About the other, other lover Diana Wake up dead (repeat 3) .....The Conjuring Welcome to our sanguinary sect of worship Feel at home in our black conventicle As we anathmatise all those who oppose us Don't summon the devil Don't call the priest If you need the strength The conjuring...OBEY!! Behold! The flames rise from the compass' cardinal points Burn the sacred oil and with the ashes you'll anoint. Arrange the symbols of the wizard and magician Light, the candles place the parchment paper in position Between its leaves place the lash from a black cat's eye A straw of a broom, fold and burn and centralize Don't summon the devil Don't call the priest If you need the strength, the conjuring... I am the devil's advocate, a salesman, if you will -- You know my name I met your father years ago, gave him what he'd please -- He called my name And you'll do the same I'm claiming what is mine by right, it's time to close the deal You're bought and sold...bought and sold Come join me in my infernal depths, Mephisto's hall of fame I've got your soul...I've got your soul

The comjuring...OBEY!!! .....Peace Sells Whaddya Whaddya Whaddya Whaddya Huh? If there's a new way I'll be the first in line But it better work this time Whaddya Whaddya Whaddya Tell me mean I hurt your feelings? I didn't know ya HAD any feelings... mean I ain't kind? Just not, YOUR kind... mean I couldn't be the president, of the United States of America? somethin'...it's still "We...the People", RIGHT? mean mean mean mean I I I I don't don't can't don't believe in God? I talk to him every day... support your system? I go to court when I have to... get to work on time? Got nothin' better to do... pay my bills...whydaya think I'm BROKE?

If there's a new way I'll be the first in line But it better work this time Can you put a price on peace? Peace, peace Peace sells, Peace sells, Peace sells, Peace sells, sells...peace, peace sells... but who's buying but who's buying but who's buying but who's buying?

No.....no no no no Peace sells... .....Devil's Island The light that fills my lonely cell is blocked out by the key That locks the door into this hell the place they wanted me Time is racing like the wind, execution's near Oh Lord I wait for death and yes I have no fear Recall that night my every breath and step along the way Closed my eyes walking as danger paved the way The devil and the darkness let her evil wander free And here on Devil's Island, the final stop for me Devil's Island...Devil's Island Oh there's no escape the sea is full of sharks The tide takes you away to smash you on the rocks The sun is shining but feel not today Its warmth is dying and fading away Devil's Island...Devil's Island

Oh hear the call from the grave beyond Oh so pernicious her soul it creates song As there is no man that is here upon the earth Able to terminate our noisome will since birth The priest that reads the sermons, is walking next to me To the stake, my last request, to have her burn with me But so it did, the heavens opened, rain began to fall The final judgment came and was spread before you all... Final Judgment Old weak and feeble but the lesson taught to me To stay away from evil she doesn't care for me She haunts me in my sleep although I tore that page away And here on Devil's Island, I'll always have to stay Devil's Island...Devil's Island (repeat) ...Good Mourning/Black Friday Good Mourning. Hey I don't feel so good...something's not right...something's coming over me... What the fuck is this? * Killer, intruder, homicidal man You see me coming run fast as you can A bloodthirsty demon who's stalking the street I hack up my victims like pieces of meat Bloodthirsty demon...sinister fiend Bludgenous slaughters...my evil deeds My hammer's a cold piece of blood lethal steel I grin while you writhe with the pain that I deal Swinging the hammer, I hack through their heads Defiant defilers, you're next to be dead I unleash my hammer with sadistic intent Pounding, surrounding, slamming through your head...yeah! Their bodies convulse in agony and pain I mangle their faces til no features remain A blade for the butchering, I cut them to shreds First take out the organs, then cut off the head The remains of their flesh now sop under my feet One more bloody massacre, the murder's complete I seek to dismember...a sadist fiend And bloodbaths are my way of getting clean I lurk in the alleys, wait for the kill I have no remorse for the blood that I spill A merciless butcher who lives underground I'M OUT TO DESTROY AND I -WILL- CUT YOU DOWN! I see you and I'm waiting...for Black Friday

Killer, intruder, homicidal man You see me coming run fast as you can A bloodthirsty demon who's stalking the streets I hack up my victims like pieces of meat I lurk in the alleys, wait for the kill I have no remorse for the blood that I spill A merciless butcher who lives underground I'M OUT TO DESTROY AND I -WILL- CUT YOU DOWN! It's Black Friday...Paint the devil on the wall (repeat) .....Bad Omen Down fell the stars as they splashed in the sea Mi Nomine Baphomet, come dance with me Sacrifice the virgins, spiritual rites Their masters' time has come, the moon is full tonight Drinking, dancing, they worship and toast The devil who's watching with demons remote Fire, rising, racing in your blood Possessed, naive, his service is done Bloody Blasphemy Sinister's the word as the demons take their fill An orgys' taking place human blood will spill An act of worship as they conceive the ghouls Satan has their souls, they sing pagan tunes The ceremony, is sure to be cursed They wait for his blessings but down comes the worst Their bodies soulless, a corpse from the grave Their minds are helpless and noone can save... Noone can save them .....I Ain't Superstitious I ain't superstitious, when a black cat crosses my path And I ain't superstitious as I break the looking glass Ain't afraid of no demons, don't make me laugh! I ain't superstitious, under the ladder I go I ain't superstitious, it's all bullshit don't ya know? Ain't afraid of the shadows, I like the dark anyway and that's a fact! Superstitious I ain't superstitious no such thing as bad luck I ain't superstitious, I couldn't really give a fuck. Take your stupid superstitions, And find some other paranoidal, chickenshit, sissy worm and tell it to him Superstitious .....My Last Words

My life's on time, but again my sense is late Feel a might unsteady, but still I have to play Six to one's the odds, we have the highest stakes And once again I gamble, with my very life today Highly polished metal, the oil makes it gleam Fill the terror chamber, now my mind begins to scream Your life is like a trigger, never trouble till you're squeezed And now you crack a smile, as you give the gun a tease Place the pistol down, now give the gun a spin Soon as the spinning stops, oh no the game starts in A hateful way of vengeance, a bit of playful sin Load another bullet, the second round begins A couple grains of powder, a couple grams of lead A touch against the trigger, a touch inside the head Take another drink and raise the last bets Think about my last words, they might be what I just said A click comes from the hammer, that couldn't drive a nail Sense the numbing cold blue, or the red of Hades grill A fraction of a second, do you lose or maybe still Pass it to left, and collect your mighty kill Add another bullet, the third round begins Soon as the spinning stops, oh no the game starts in Please no IOU's, no markers for death Does anybody play... Anybody? Somebody! Anyway...PLAY! You You You You (you), next victim...you...next to die (you), next victim...you...next to die (come on), next victim...you...next to die (come on), next victim...you...next to die...........

You........... DIE! (> (>#
