The Devil Lives Here

Brought together by the darkness that blocks out the light
I’ll come and find you crawling through the graveyard tonight
I’d die for you and I know you’d die for me too
We’ll lay together in our very own satanic tomb

In darkness we slumber
Our number is that of the beast
Our Gruftis will follow
On the blood of our donor’s we’ll feast
There’s no tomorrow
For tonight our fates will be sealed
The scars made from daylight
And all mortal wounds will be healed

We have our orders, darling, this is our fate
Our only hope of release from this world that we hate
We’ll take our place in Hell together
And serve our Dark Lord, Satan forever

We are not of this world
We must liberate our souls from this mortal flesh
Claim our victim
Then lay ourselves down to rest
He is unknowing
A pentagram carved in his chest
Satan is calling
Tonight, my love, we will be blessed

The devil lives here!

    creepy stuff… the patholigical minds of serial killers is both fascinating and scary! sometimes I get too involved reading crime websites, they make for intriguing reading, but it can all get a bit heavy at times, great writing.

  • Indeed. I have many-a-books on serial killers, although Daniel and Manuela weren’t really serial killers at all. They only killed one person you see. Thanks for your comment and the fave :D
