It's a deep foggy night, I walk on a muddy path
With blisters on my feet, I'm tired, I've lost my wit
Faces up on the trees, they laugh and they mock me
Cold breath strikes my neck, I'm a dead man I bet

Oh my Lord, they're's a house right by a willow tree
A desolated shelter with crows in the chimney
I run to get in for now rain is falling
Could this house be the haunted one I once was told about ?

Tic toc, tic toc, I knock on the door
It's cold and it's dark here, I'm drenched to the core
The shrill whistle of a train echoes in the plain
I stand in that gloomy hall, I'm scared to the bone

Well I follow the corridor up to the living room
Where old rats are playing chess by the light of the moon
Dancers are getting dressed, blood stains on their hands
A "funereal" tune slowly floats in the room

In a corner by my side, a weird dog smokes a pipe
His paws on ivory keys, he's playing a lullaby
"French wine or Ballentine, what will you drink, Sir?"
Am I drunk, am I mad ? Well I feel close to Paradise

As midnight approaches, the mood gets electric
Vampires, skeletons, fairies, dwarves and animals
Pixies, crooks, beggars, they are all gathered now
"Are you ready for the show, there'll be blood, sex and rock n' nroll..."

Did I dream all that scene ? For sunrise now wakes me up
Alone in my room where no sounds are breaking out
Back in my head there's a strange record playing
Just like a movie song whispered from another world
