The poison is still in your veins
The poison I slipped in your drink
Never saw me,I am but a ghost
Never saw your dangerous host

Wake up...You're still alive...Wake up and die

All you can see in the darkness above
Is the white in my eyes...
I'm standing on the edge of your grave
Looking down
Into the eyes of a dead...
Buried alive...Buried alive

Wake up...You're still alive...Wake up and die

How does it feel with my foot on your chest?
How does it feel?
Tell me and I might forget
How does it feel to be so out of breath?
How does it feel?
Tell me and I might forget...
Buried alive...Buried alive

He started struggling,Oh the fool
Moonlight shining in his drool
I slammed the shovel straight between his eyes
"Stay down",I screamed "You're here to die"

Never saw me,I am but a ghost
Never saw your dangerous host

Wake up...You're still alive...Wake up and die

All you can see in the darkness above
Is the white in my eyes...
I'm standing on the edge of your grave
Looking down
Into the eyes of a dead...
Buried alive...Buried alive

No matter what it is you believe
You're lucky if you die in your sleep
"Murder",he screamed "Oh why?" but that's a lie
You killed me first,so now die

I'm dead,but you die,I'm gonna bury you alive

"Murder" he screamed "Oh why?"

    General CommentI first got into Mercyful Fate when I heard the Metallica medley which I really liked, except for the lyrics. I'm not a devil worshipper or anything so they don't mean anything to me. But the music is really great and the singing.

    General CommentNice OPINION of Metallica you have there Bob. As I said somewhere else, lyrics to me are secondary, the MUSIC that Mercyful Fate make is amazing.

    And to AeroLed, mate, you gotta stop taking this stuff so seriously, the lyrics are just telling a story, and will not influence your beliefs in any way. Like how listening Metal doesn't mean you have to wear all black.....well to a few of us at least.

    General Commentif you're dumb enough to allow yourself to be influenced by song lyrics to the point you're worried about becoming 'satanic' and a 'devil worshipper', then maybe you shouldn't be listening to king and mercy.

    mercy is incredible, but damn, king diamond's solo outing impressed me even more. amazing. just amazing.

    and to revist what was already posted, metallica blows.

    General Commentgreat lyrics, it sounds like a horror movie! Satanism has nothing to do with this song because Sammael is not even mentioned.

    General CommentI hate you stupid Christians, STOP calling him a "devil worshipper," he is a satanist, which deserves the same respect as anything else. Educate yourself before you go around preaching about jesus and demeaning satanists as pagan devil worshippers.

    General CommentKing Diamond can call himself whatever he wants, but its hard to take him seriously when every time he tries to talk about his religion, he comes off sounding uneducated, childish, and just trying to be evil.
