Hail to the King... Diamond



Sleepless Nights

I cannot sleep at night
That's what the day is for, anyway

And as the clock strikes midnight
I hear them dancing at the graves
Singing to My mind
Killing the pain...
Sleepless nights... sleepless nights

I cannot sleep at night
That's what the day is for, anyway

And as the clock strikes midnight
Only THEY can let us meet
Even though she's dead now
I gotta see her again...
Sleepless nights... sleepless nights

I cannot sleep at night
I will do anything to see Missy again

"Then let us make You an eternal deal
You will attend to the graves
You'll give us the house back and keep in mind
that we only come here at night".

So we made the deal under the starry night and
"AMON" belongs to THEM now...
I feel the dawn coming My way

And as the sun breaks up the dark
I can't hear THEM dance no more
There's no voices
Killing the pain... pain... pain

GRANDMAAAAAAAAAA!!!

I actually long for the days when Mercyful Fate comes back with exploding nuns onstage. Pyro penguin props at concerts are a truly missing piece of the metal jigsaw scene these days.

I was torn as to whether or not I should add my "Satanica" tag to this post, given that King Diamond never really gave props to The Dark Lord in the same way that Mercyful Fate did.

I'll never forget the first time I was hit by The Curse of the Pharoahs. And don't even get me going on Melissa... Epic metal. And scary, to boot!
