A Mansion In Darkness

This song is by King Diamond and appears on the album Abigail (1987) and on the album Deadly Lullabyes (2004).

Riding up the alley in the rain,
No lights to show the way.
How could this ever be their home?
Through the darkness you could only see
A giant shadow that swells to be
A house where evil rules at night
And the shadows at the gate, they seemed to be alive.
Yeah, the shadows at the gate -- alive.
Everything inside was left untouched
Except for what the rats had got,
And the dust of time that showed its mark.
Armed with candlelight and open eyes
Through the dark they fought their way
Till every room was lit again...
And the house began to breathe, it seemed to be alive.
Yeah, the house began to breathe -- alive.
As the candlelight began to fade,
And Jonathan said, "Let's go to bed."
The fireplace had ceased to burn...
Both were fast asleep before the dawn, Dreaming... Dreaming...
And they did not know about the shadow...
Yeah, the shadow on the wall, it really came alive.
Yeah, the shadow on the wall -- Sunrise!
