into the convent lyrics – king diamond

music by: andy la rocque and snowy show

madeleine is running away from herself
afraid of shame, she’s crying out for help
to be clean again
&
no one cared and no one ever will
her feelings were not shared, she wants to break the spell
and she’s going

into the convent, a smile on her face
into the darkness to hide all her sins
wondering what could go wrong in this place

father david:^wellcome sister, i’m your chaplain
down on your knees and pray if you please
in this convent i’m your master
kiss my cross now dearest sister
in the name of …^
&
madeleine is running away from herself
as father david said:^at comminion you must be undressed^
why did she go

into the convent, a smile on her face
into the darkness to hide all her sins
wondering what could go wrong in this place
&
father david:^come along sister madeleine
unfold your wildest dreams, it’s time to join and sing
let the feast begin^

that night she awoke to find ^the eye^
on the stone cold floor why, she never ever would knoe why
but she put it on
%
next day father david p*ssed away
at communion time
why, he never ever would know why
but he looked at ^the eye^

the eye of the necklace is laking it’s toll
inside the convent a soul will rejoice
