"Mephisto Waltz" as written by and Glenn Danzig....
Waltz, The pagan master
Waltz, His evil shines
Waltz, To the Devil's depot
Waltz, It's gonna be so great

Whoah oh oh
Whoah oh oh
Whoah oh oh
Go

Waltz, Into the darkest feeling
Waltz, Without a blink I go
Waltz, To the Devil's ballet
Waltz, To Mephisto

Waltz, The Devil's dance
Waltz, And in twilight gray
Waltz, Darkness grows much faster
Waltz, It's gonna be so great

Whoah oh oh
Whoah oh oh
Whoah oh oh
Go

Waltz, The pagan master
Waltz, His evil shines
Waltz, To the Devil's depot
Waltz, It's gonna be so great

Whoah oh oh
Whoah oh oh
Whoah oh oh
Oh

Whoah oh oh
Whoah oh oh
Whoah oh oh
Oh

Go, Go, Go
Whoah oh oh
Whoah oh oh
Whoah oh oh
Go

Whoah oh oh
Whoah oh oh
Whoah oh oh
Go

Waltz
Waltz
Waltz
Waltz

    General CommentThis was a song that Glenn wrote that was never recorded while the band was together. According to Jerry, it was a song The Misfits only rehearsed twice together, as all the members of the band except Glenn did not like it. Glenn first mentioned it in the June 1986 "Thrasher" interview by Pushead, who misquoted the title as "The Crystal Waltz." In a later "Thrasher" issue, an article stated that Glenn had discovered a tape with this song on it. The version of this song that appears on the Collection II album and The Misfits Box Set was recorded by Glenn Danzig and Eerie Von in 1986, three years after The Misfits broke up. The title of this song may have come from the 1971 movie of the same name.

    General Commentnice info pale didn't know about the crystal waltz thing...this is still a pretty good song..i like how if you listen closely you can hear Glenn say "come on" when eerie stops singing.. The Misfits sorta stayed away from the whole Devil..Mephisto..religion thing so i dont blame them for no playing this one...Sam Hain got deeper..then glenn got where he wanted and now with Danzig he's all about religion and what not.
