As you probably know, I love this song.

Look to the sky
way up on high
There in the night
stars are now right

Eons have passed          Fear
now then at last          the
prison walls break        Old
Old Ones awake            Ones

They will return          They                     Fear
Mankind will learn        will                     the
new kinds of fear         re-                      Old
when they are here        turn                     Ones

They will reclaim         They will reclaim        They will reclaim         They will reclaim
all in their name         all in their name        all in their name         all in their name
Hopes turn to black       Hopes turn to black      Hopes turn to black       Hopes turn to black
when they come back       when they come back      when they come back       when they come back

Stars brightly burning    They will return         Stars brightly burning    They will return

The carol of the bells TERRIFIED me when I was a young lad. I can't imagine the kind of trauma it would have inflicted upon me if it would have had the Lovecraftian lyrics.

Oh yeah, I've heard it before. I actually got a quartet together sometime last year and handed out the sheet music, and we did a little performance of it. It was krad.

I like it! Never heard it before, though.

If you like progressive rock at all, you might want to check out an album called "Kadath Decoded" by Payne's Gray. It's concept album based on Lovecraft's "The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath". Good stuff.

Ia! Ia! Cthulhu ftaghn!

cheers,

You forgot the final "DOOM!" the bass is supposed to sing at the end.

I'm having trouble, I think...

Am I supposed to be getting the whole song when I try to download it? I seem to be only getting a few seconds.

I absolutely love that piece. But your organizing of the lyrics is awesome!

Have you downloaded the sheet music? *Grins*

Have the best

Thanks! :) It was downloading the sheet music that enabled me to organize the lyrics, as I recall.
