salem lyrics – king diamond

at midnight that same night
the lafayette’s were sleeping
at midnight that same night
there is a shadow creeping

salem is moving without a sound
salem is moving, moving, moving
to the burial ground

so hot and so quiet
only the leaves are shaking
by one of the graves
doctor le croix is waiting

salem is moving without a sound
salem is moving, moving, moving
to the burial ground

doctor le croix, shaking the hand of salem

my my my my my god
salem tell me the secret
my my my my my god
this makes me feel uneasy

in shock le croix is terrified
this could be the end
fear turns to hate
great wanga will befall the lafayette’s

salem, help me, save us
salem, help me, save us
by turning them to dust

so take this money and off you go
to madame sarita’s boutique of voodoo
a snake curse and a little ‘goofer dust’

you salem will be the link
between them and us
this could be an easy way
to turn the lafayette’s to dead

two hours later, salem leaves madame sarita

my my my my my god
salem is looking scary
my my my my my god
now he’s heading for the cemetery

kneeling in front of one of the graves
a handful of soil and salem is on his way
he must leave a copper penny as payment for the soil

and to protect himself
from all the spirits that could
come and dig themselves into his head
dead dead dead, salem is here

by the house, in the dark
there is a shadow digging
the snake in the bottle
is buried and it’s ready

salem is moving without a sound
everyone’s sleeping, but me
’cause i don’t need it, no
