"Welcome Home" as written by and Kirk/shaw/miller....
Grandma' welcome home
You have
Been gone for far too long
Is this a dream, are You really back?

Let me help You out of the chair
Let me touch You, let me feel

Grandma' take a look
What do You think of the house and
The silvery moon?
We are going to repaint the front door

Let me help You out of the chair
Let me touch You, let me feel

Wait till You see Your room up in the
Prepared just like You said, without a
You will find Your rocking chair and
The tea pot that Missy found

Let me help You out of the chair
There is someone waiting for You,
Now come along

Missy and Mother, they are dying to
Meet You
How strange, she's spoken no word
I wonder Grandma!
Are You all right?

Grandma' what was it like to be on
That holiday site
"Oh it could have been worse but
With "them" by my side
In the twilight "they" sang all the old
Grandma' who are "they"
"Never mind You dirty little brat"

"Let us go inside, something's on
"Their" mind
"They" are still alive, can You feel
"Their" eyes
Can You feel "their" eyes?
Now that You are stuck with me You
Better be my friend.

    General CommentThis song is the beginning of the story regarding the grandma coming home from an asylum, and her relationship with demons and satanic worship. Grandma is crazy and hes a bit uncomfortable with that. He tells her what she requested to be set up for her arrival is taken care of and grandma tells him her time away was ok as her demons followed her to look over her, reassuring her mind as crazy. The demons crave blood. And grandma will provide it to them at any cost.

    I suggest reading the album as a whole for the entire story. Very interesting. Would make a good plot for a movie.

    General Commentpainting the door could possibly be a reference to the angel of death coming to egypt and killing the egyptian children, and the hebrews had to paint the top of their door with the blood of the sheep in order for the angel of death to not kill them.

    General CommentI always tried to find deeper meanings, metaphores, and stuff in the stories of King Diamond but I've never found anything, I guess King Diamond's songs are just what you read...

    General CommentYou people Are Morons, Every King Diamond CD Has A More Significant Meaning Then The Obvious Story Told. An Example Would Be "The Puppet Master", The CD was A Whole Metaphor For Christianity (or Religion), Hence The Cross On The Cover Of The Book, With The Strings Torn, And The Scalpel in Blood.
