Live At The Trocadero Theatre

Amazing performance of these two songs from their 1984 Don't Break The Oath record which is one of my favorites and probably yours... Nevermore opened up for this show...

Song Four: Nightmare / Desecration Of Souls


Am I awake or is this just a dream?
I had a nightmare, some sort of vision
I was stuck in an empty room
When the black book appeared
The light were dim but the face in the book
Was in daylight
Eyes of fire staring at me
It's the eyes of a woman
And see on her spirit
Steppin' out of the book

I hear her callin' for her coven to come
There's a light in the doorway
Entering shadows whose number is 13
They do the sign of devil's seed
I'm in the middle of a magic ring
Somebody tell me what's going on
"Only we know the secret
Of the curse that you bear"
Listen, they sing, the coven sings
Night after night, hear them sing
Now they're still here, I can hear them again
Night after night, I have this dream
"You're only living on borrowed
Time from your life"

Desecration Of Souls
Stay away white magician
Young lovers and mourning wife
You're not welcome on our land
So I speak for the dead
Magic circles drawn after midnight
Around graves to be opened
He'll ask the wand to raise a body
He'll ask the questions and
He'll burn the remains
It's desecration of souls
In their holy lair

Copulation in the night
Two shadows upon a grave
Screams of pleasure,
Screams of pain
Young lovers you must be insane
It's desecration of souls
In their holy lair
So I say again stay away
It's desecration of souls

Dying flowers upon the grave
Of a husband who's lost his maid
She's there on duty and the tears she cries
They don't belong where the flowers lie
It's desecration of souls
In their holy lair
So I say again stay away
It's desecration of souls
