    Louisiana Darkness
    (Diamond/Diamond)

Sarah Lafayette is sleeping, her husband
is awake
This summer's night is too hot
Feels like his majesty was here

Can you hear the voodoo drums
They're howling at the moon

Voodoo.. voodoo... voodoo...


       "LOA" House
   (La Rocque/Diamond)

Louisiana nights are darker than before
Along the Mississippi, that is where it is
The  old  colonial house, a mansion of you
will

White  as snow, the mansion still seems to
have its glow

And when the moon is full and white
You  can  hear the drums of voodoo echo in
the night

In  the  "LOA"house,misery will strike
again

Jean Le Noir, the first to own this house
He  was a voodoo priest, a Houngan so they
say
The voodoo cemetery, that is where he is
Died at the hand of an evil Bocor's will

They  say...  he's  been walking the house
ever since that day

And when the moon is full and white
You  can  hear the drums of voodoo echo in
the night

In  the  "LOA"house,misery will strike
again

They never should have come, no no no
They  never  should have come to the "LOA"
house
They never should have come, no no no
They never should have come to the "LOA"

7 days ago... the Lafayettes moved in
Sarah is with child and Davis is the man
This is no Abigail, this child will survi-
ve
And  Grandfather  dear, why did they bring
him here?

White  as  snow,  thatis all he sees, oh
he's been blind for years

They never should have come, no no no
They  never  should have come to the "LOA"
house
They never should have come, no no no
They never should have come to the "LOA"

In  the  "LOA"house,misery will strike
again
In  the  "LOA"house,misery will strike
again

And  again.. and again... and again... and
again...


     Life After Death
    (Diamond/Diamond)

Four shadows heading for the dark
Four shadows heading for the past
Four shadows heading for the graves in the
vooded 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 tnat no
one ever sees
Salem the servant, he belongs to the esta-
te

The shadows move
They're here to feed the dead...
the shadows move

The Lafayettes are unaware... their butler
Salem, he is here
Voodoohas  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...


  Voodoo
    (Diamond/Diamond)

A narrow path runs along the river
From the burial ground you might see is
Leading to a temple of secrets
Where  they  meet  once a week... to dance
and feast

Lula is dancing to the voodoo drums
Twisting, turning, round and round

She is ready to receive the LOA
She is ready for the God
This one is Damballah

Voodoo, voodoo, voodoo
Voodoo, voodoo, voodoo
Total emptiness inside
As Damballah gets ready for her ride

Casting out from Lula's head
One of two souls that seems to be dead
Traveling deep in a trance
Lula's legs are getting weak
"The LOA has seized its horse"...sssssss

Lula is not the one that's speaking now
Lula is not the one that's lying down

Drink,drink  girl,  drink  the chicken's
blood
Drink, drink girl, drink and feed the God

If  this  is all you think they do, oh you
better think again
'Cause there is so much more to voodoo, oh
than meets the eye

Voodoo, voodoo, voodoo
Voodoo, voodoo, voodoo

Human  hair  on waxen dolls, pins througth
their knees
Pins  throughttheir  little  heads,  and
throught their bellies
Ahh they're coming to get you, they're co-
ming for you
Ahh they're coming to get you, they're co-
ming for you now

Voodoo, voodoo, voodoo
Voodoo, voodoo, voodoo... Voodoo...


 A Secret
   (La Rocque/Diamond)

In  the  "LOA"mansion the Lafayettes are
meeting
There's a crisis they must resolve
Twice since they moved into this house
The Voodoo drums have spoken at night

The mansion is dark and gloomy place
A hounted landscape, a house without grace
The Voodoo burial ground is the key
Get rid of that and they're free

It  must remain a secret, or the plan will
never work
It must remain a secret

In comes Salem, he's feet tall and dark
He  isthe  new found butler of the "LOA"
house
They  ask  himfor advice regarding their
plan
To destroy the cemetery on their land

It  must remain a secret, or the plan will
never work
It must remain a secret

We must do what must be done

If you steal the grave from one who sleeps
He will come for you to set him free

You must not break the chain

Salem:"Jean  Le Noir's spirit walks this
house at night
Never  will  be leave, cause this is where
he died
Great Wanga will hit you if you do
Destroy the cemetery of Voodoo"

It  must remain a secret, or the plan will
never work
It must remain a secret

Superstitious we are not


  Salem
    (Diamond/Diamond)

At  midnight that same night, the Lafayet-
tes 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  mymy  mymy God, this makes me feel
uneasy"

In  shock...  Le  Croix is terrified, this
could be the end
Fear  turns to hate, "Great Wanga will be-
fall the Lafayettes

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 La-
fayettes to dead"

Two hours later, Salem leaves Madame Sari-
ta
My my my my my God, Salem is looking scary
My  mymy my my God, now he's heading for
the cemetery

Kneeling in front of the graves
A handful of soll 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  dead... Dead... Dead... Dead...
Salem is here

By the house, in the dark, there is a sha-
dow digging
The  snake  inthe bottle, is buried it's
ready

Salem is moving without a sound
Everyone's sleeping, but me 'cause I don't
need it... No


   One Down, Two To Go
 (Estes-Diamond/Diamond)

The sun has risen, just above the trees
The  birds  are  singing, it's just like a
dream
What  a  perfect  morning it... could have
been
Salem's in the kitchen, and that's a sin
Eggs for three and a little tea
Mixed with the graveyard dirt... from yes-
terday

Anybody eating Salem's "A la carte" today
Should be taken ill and... waste away

(Salem thinking to himself:)
"You  used  tobe  sobeautiful, but now
you're gonna die
You  used  to  be  so  beautiful,  but now
you're gonna die
Die, both of you... are gonna die
Die,  die,  both  of you... are gonna die,
die... die"

Salem's  walking  up the stairs to the se-
cond floor
Silver tray in hand... knocking at the do-
or

(Salem thinking to himself:)
"You  used  tobe  sobeautiful, but now
you're gonna die
You  used  to  be  so  beautiful,  but now
you're gonna die
Die, both of you... are gonna die
Die, die, both of you... are gonna die"

In a fever, sick as Hell
David's  got  a  snakebite... and all is
well
Salem thinks to himself:

One  down,  two to go, "Oh Madame he's got
the flu"
One  down,  two to go, "Oh Madame he's got
the flu"

The  problem  is that Sarah's morning sick
again
That   pregnant  woman,  always  something
wrong

You  used  to  be  so  beautiful,  but now
you're gonna die
You  used  to  be  so  beautiful,  but now
you're gonna die
Die... Sarah die, Sarah die
Die, die... Sarah die, Sarah die


     Sending of Dead
    (Diamond/Diamond)

Evening,  the  sun  is setting, silence is
all you hear

David,getting really sick he is sweating
like a pig
The fever's got him now
And  Sarah's father dear, the morning snak
has put him on his
back
He  should  have  stayed  in bed... oh why
didn't he?

...Thesun is setting, silence is all you
hear
Sarah: "Salem, what's going on?"

Salem:"Let me tell you a story Madame, a
secret about your land
The reason... for all this madness
Let me tell you a story Madame, the burial
ground on your land
Is a secret voodoo stand

If you ever destroy this sacred place
Legendsays  that you will die, and never
find you rest
I'm telling the truth... Oh yes I am
If  the  living  can't feed the dead, then
the dead will come for you
Yeah

Sarah:"You  better  hold your tongue now
Salem
'Cause I don't believe in ghosts"
There is only one thing left to do now
And that is "Sending Of Dead"

The four shadows are meeting again
At  the cemetery gates, darkness is a fri-
end
Midnight will soon be here

Everything  should  be ready by now... for
"Sending Of Dead"

Place the image of Saint Expedit
Upside down and around
I hear Doctor Le Croix speaking
"Let the ritual begin"

"Almight God, father of mine, come for Sa-
rah Lafayette
That  she  maybe  "Disappeared", forever
lost
Saint  Expedit,  you are a saint and I'm a
sinner
I send you to find... Sarah Lafayette
Oh,  rid me of all her thoughts, rid me of
her memory
For  this curse to work, Baron Samedi, Sa-
medi, Samedi
Send your blessing, so Sarah may be gone"

As  if he was sent from the sky, baron Sa-
medi creeps inside
The Doctor's body... speaking to Salem
Samedi: "You must bring me a sacrifice
You must come back before midnight
Kneel before my cross" ...Salem is there

He takes a handful of soil from each grave
Of the dead he wants to send... into Sarah
Now quick quick run back to the HOUSE
The soll must lie where Sarah sleeps


      Sarah's Night
    (Diamond/Diamond)

Salem's standing in the dark
Watching Sarah's sleeping body
Someone is in her bed
Twisting, turning in his fever
David will not even see her
I  am  invisible...  I am the one to bring
you down

I  open  up  my hand, the "Goofer Dust" is
falling
It's now on Sarah's hand
You can almost see the dead, as they enter
Sarah's head
Then  deep  into her stomach, I wonder how
the baby feels

Violently she's sitting up
Screams of pain I know she's hurting
I only see white in her eyes

Sarah speaks in unknown tongue
Then she spits a little blood
Time has come, I must be gone
It comes Granpa, what is he doing
I thought I had him not moving
But  the  deadin Sarah's head, will take
her to an early grave
Salem is gone

Grandpa: "Go back to sleep my dear
It's just another nightmare
Those God damn voodoo drums
I  will  stay in here tonight, and keep an
open eye
So you can sleep again...
Sarah  sleep...  Sarah sleep... Sarah sle-
ep...


       The Exorcist
   (La Rocque/Diamond)

At the light of dawn, on a day without
Sunshine... Salem had vanished
Gone, would Sarah, would she survive
Grandpa was panicking

FatherMalone, The Exorcist... Father Ma-
lone, The Exorcist

Sarah's voice had changed from female to
Male...  and  that was wrong, it was as if
Sarah
Had gone, Grandpa remembered his friend
Father Malone was the name

Grandpa: "Put me throungh to New Orleans
The Abbey of the Holy Saints
Father Malone please... it's urgent
You  got to, you got to, you got to put me
through"

It  only took a minute or two, before fat-
her he understood
FatherMalone: "Listen here my friend, do
not despair
I will be there... this afternoon

But beware... of the Daytime Moon"

FatherMalone, The Exorcist... Father Ma-
lone, he is here

Father Malone: "Holy Cross and Bible
Holy Water for the soul
And  so the house I bless, but David, he's
got to
Go,  call  for an ambulance before the ot-
hers know"
Then he went back to Sarah's room


     Unclean Spirits
     (Estes/Diamond)

Father Malone: "Holy Lord, Almighty Father
Everylasting  God  andfather of our Lord
Jesus Christ
Who  sent  your only begotten son into the
world
To crush that lion
Strike terror Lord, into the Beast
Let  your mighty hand cast him out of your
servant
Sarah Lafayette
So he may no longer hold captive this pri-
soner

I cast you, you unclean spirit
In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ
It is he who commands you
By this sign of the Holy Cross
Give way to Christ
The power of Christ compells you
The power of Christ compells you
The power... the power...


  Cross Of Baron Samedi
    (Diamond/Diamond)

One single hour, is like a working day
Father Malone is getting tired
Darkness... has come again
The Demons seems to be resting
Sarah is looking just like Hell
There ain't much left of her to save now

Meanwhile in Salem's quarters
There's a shadow that moves
Into a room full of secrets of life
Into a room only few have survived
There is a cross upon the wall
The cross of Baron Samedi
The shadow is taking the cross away
The  shadow  is Lula, the girl that no one
ever sees

I see her shadow with that cross of mine
I see her shadow slipping into the night
The cross of Baron Samedi will set us free
The  cross  of Baron Samedi, just wait and
see

The cross of Baron Samedi is full of nails
The cross of Baron Samedi could split your
head
Take  it  to  Sarah... Take it to Sarah...
Sarah

Darkness... she's up again
Sarah is standing in front of Father Malo-
ne
Sleeping... the Father's on a chair
Sarah  is  saying:"  Father,  I'm about to
sin"

Then one to the Father's head
The cross is coming down so hard
Screaming, bleeding, Malone goes down
Again and... again and... his blood is all
around

In comes Grandpa: "Stop it Sarah stop"
I  don't  knowwhy, but Sarah dropped the
cross
Two hours later everyone was here
Police and ambulance, wiping up the tears

Samedi... Samedi... Samedi


    If They Only Knew
        (Diamond)

I heard a policeman say to Grandpa:
"Thereonce was a Salem, the caretaker of
the "LOA" house
But he died years ago.
As a matter of fact, he's buried right he-
re on your land."

If they only knew.


        Aftermath
    (Diamond/Diamond)

The  "LOA" house and the old voodoo burial
ground
Are still standing in all their glory.
The Lafayettes left the hospital and Loui-
siana
And went to... I don't care.

Malonesurvived.  He's  a  scared old man
now.
By the way, my name is Salem.

You cannot say, that everybody's happy.
But you can say, that everybody is now
Safe from each other.

At  least  I  thought so, until a few days
ago
When I heard of some mother
By the name of Sarah Lafayette
Who's  newbornbaby  was  speaking in the
strangest tongue
Backwards.

A miracle?

Some expert had uttered the word:

VOODOO
