life after death lyrics – king diamond

four shadows heading for the dark
four shadows heading for the past
four shadows heading for the graves in the wooded maze
four shadows looking for the place without a trace

midnight and they’re here
midnight

the old burial ground
is part of the estate
hidden by the heavy trees
where jean le noir he sleeps

the shadows move
they’re here to feed the dead
the shadows move
’cause there is life after death

be patient and you will see
there is life after death
be patient and you will see
oh it must never end, never end, no

midnight and they’re here
midnight

doctor le croix, he’s a voodoo sorcerer
madame sarita, she’s got the snake in her
and lula chevalier, she’s the girl that no one ever sees
salem the servant, he belongs to the estate

the shadows move
they’re here to feed the dead
the shadows move

the lafayette’s are unaware
their butler salem, he is here
voodoo has been his life
voodoo cuts deep like a knife

the shadows move
they’re here to feed the dead
the shadows move
’cause there is life after death

be patient and you will see
there is life after death
be patient and you will see
oh it must never end, never end, no

midnight and they’re here
midnight
midnight

life after death
life after death, there is life
life after death, there is life
