Lyrics

NIGHT WILL FALL 

The people of this town disappear at night 
Scramble like bugs in the kitchen light 
I don't want to know what they fear 
Hiding in the shadows . . . the shadows coming near 

Night will fall 
And cover you with rust 
Night will call 
In the darkness we will trust 

Something wicked stirring in the trees 
Satan's little hookers on their knees 
Insanity billows in the breeze 
Lethal spores in the air . . . in the air we breathe 

Night will fall 
And polish you with dust 
Night will call 
In the darkness we will trust 

I can hear scratching in the wall 
Waiting for the somber dark to fall 
Waiting for the solemn lullabies 
Waiting for the darkness . . . the darkness always lies 

Night will fall 
And cover you with rust 
Night will call 
In the darkness we will trust 

Night will fall 
Darkness we will trust 
Night will call 
In the darkness we will touch

SETTTING SUN 

Gold as the dust that settles on your brow 
Cold as the wind that rustles through the bough 
Gold in your eyes and the fever starts to fail 
Cold in your hands as they fumble for the grail 

Here it comes 
Setting sun 
In the barrel of a gun 
It starts to show 
Starts to grow 
In the feathers of the crow 

It's never done 
Setting sun 
End of days has just begun 
Make it so 
Make it go 
Setting sun will always glow 

Old as the bones that rattle in your tomb 
Young as the night and the darkness starts to bloom 
Old as the day in the comfort of the womb 
Young as a rose with its poisonous perfume 

Here it comes 
Setting sun 
In the barrel of a gun 
It starts to show 
Starts to grow 
In the feathers of the crow 

It's never done 
Setting sun 
End of days has just begun 
Make it so 
Make it go 
Setting sun will always glow 

Always glow

Lyrics

AFRAID OF THE DARK 

Clouds obscure the sun 
There are whitecaps on the water 
As we move in single file 
At the service for his daughter 

I’m not afraid 
I’m not afraid 
I’m not afraid 
Of the dark 

No one is immune 
Come Hell or high water 
I can’t hold back my sorrow 
But I can hold my daughter 

She’s not afraid 
She’s not afraid 
She’s not afraid 
She’s not afraid 
She’s not afraid 
She’s not afraid 
Of the dark

Lyrics

SPEAK TO ME 

There comes a time in every plight 
When you have to decide who's wrong and who's right 
You can stay in the dark 
Or free your mind and move on into the light 
When you're there, you might be aware 
Of a conjurer with bones in his hair 
Kneeling down on bended knees 
And chanting a name in a prayer of pleas 

Speak to me 
In tongues you speak through me 
In the dark you see through me 
Strike down our foes 

There comes a time in every night 
When you have to decide which path to alight 
You can stay in your place 
Or free your mind and leave without a trace 
When you're there, you'd best beware 
The alchemist with a deadly stare 
Whispers to the ghost Cortez 
Who comes alive and softly says 

Speak to me 
In tongues you speak through me 
In the dark you see through me 
Strike down our foes

EVIL CIRCUS CLOWN 

Evil circus clown 
Is nowhere to be found 
His face paint starts to run 
No one's having fun 

Evil circus clown 
Drinks until he's down 
The evil big top star 
Has passed out at the bar 

Evil circus clown 
Works without a net 
Dresses like a party 
To cover his regret 

Even without the bulb 
His nose is always red 
And even though he wears a wig 
There's nothing in his head 
But character defects 
Jealousy and rage 
That's why he has to paint a smile 
Before he takes the stage 

The bearded lady hates him 
The midgets run away 
The elephants are frightened 
The jugglers are dismayed 
The children in the bleachers 
Expecting something true 
Are scared out of their wits 
When evil comes unglued 

Clowns should never talk 
Clowns should only smile 
They have nothing good to say 
Only filthy lies and vile 

Evil circus clown 
Broke the big top rule 
Opened up his mouth 
To prove he's not a fool 

But only fools were makeup 
To cover up a frown 
The crowd is finally laughing 
Cause the joke is on the clown

Lyrics


NERVOUS TIME 

Hidden in the floorboard 
Underneath the bed 
Blood still running 
Pounding in my head 
Heart still pumping 
I’m trying to ignore 
Now the heat is coming 
Rapping at my door 

Can’t you see? 
Yes, I’m quite all right 
Can’t you tell? 
Would you like a light? 
Nervous time 
I could make some tea 
Nervous time 
There’s nothing wrong with me 

Say what you will 
Any man could learn to kill 
Say what you like 
Any man could learn to strike 

Wicked eye staring 
Deep into my soul 
Wait until he’s sleeping 
Before I take control 
Heart still pumping 
Ticking in my head 
Burning in my ears 
The shouting of the dead 

Can’t you tell? 
I like to stay up late 
Can’t you see? 
I don’t believe in fate 
Nervous time 
Won’t you take a seat? 
Nervous time 
There’s nothing wrong with me 

Say what you will 
Any man could learn to kill 
Say what you like 
Any man could learn to strike 

Deep in the night 
Like a moth is drawn to light 
His evil eye 
Had to shut, it had to die

DREAMFALLING 

The wind is blowing 
The floor is gone 
I know I’m dreaming 
But something’s wrong 
I’ve woken up 
Within my dream 
The riverboat 
Floats upstream 

I’m falling 
Underground 
I’m calling 
Without a sound 
I’m falling 
To nowhere 
I’m calling 
To no one 

The mountaintops 
Are far below 
The desert wing 
Like a furnace blows 
I’m drifting now 
Above the trees 
I’ve come apart 
I’m no longer me 

I’m falling 
Underground 
I’m calling 
Without a sound 
I’m falling 
To nowhere 
I’m calling 
To no one 

I’m falling 
Like a leaf 
I’m calling 
No relief 
I’m falling 
With my fears 
I’m calling 
No one hears 

No one hears 

No one

Lyrics

NIGHTWALKER 

The Nightwalker has some goods for sale 
A box of dreams and the devil’s eyelash 
A jar of giant tears and a batch of witch’s sleep 
Powder of Pan’s horn and a strand of Aphrodite’s hair 

The Nightwalker collects arti-facts and arti-frauds 
Hides in the shadows when he sees you coming 
Barters with the tramps who steal for commission 
From the trash of the rich and the shanties of the poor 

Walk into the Night 
Walk into the Night 

The Nightwalker drags his big bag behind him 
Likes to call himself the “Anti Saint Nicolas” 
He’s never seen a sleigh or harnessed a reindeer 
Avoids the rooftops and chimneys whenever possible 

The Nightwalker comes under cover of darkness 
Sneaks in your house through the cracks in the tile 
Blows magic sleeping dust over your pillowcase 
And walks the streets in your darkest dreams 

Walk into the Night 
Walk into the Night 
Walk into the Night 
Walk into the Night

RISING SUN 

Before I come apart again 
Something has to give inside 
It’s so hard to trust, my friend 
I would rather run and hide 

But as I reach the deepest low 
The East horizon starts to glow 

Oh – the sun is rising up to fill the sky 
Oh – the sun is rising up to blow my mind 
Oh – the sun is rising up to light the way 
Oh – the sun is rising up to save the day 

Sitting in my living room 
Pouring over all you said 
Something has to happen soon 
Or is this only in my head? 

But as I reach the deepest low 
The East horizon starts to glow 

Oh – the sun is rising up to fill the sky 
Oh – the sun is rising up to blow my mind 
Oh – the sun is rising up to light the way 
Oh – the sun is rising up to save the day
