Stars crossed the empty page her story lingers on. Outside the wailing wall she’s a girl at play Inside the woman weeps from dusk till dawn. A tattered gown of silk and lace Falls carelessly to the floor. She disappears leaving no sign nor trace A promise keeps the circles drawn An Angel sings the Serpent Song. Wake up………. This is no time to sleep Wake up………. I’ve got something for you to see My child………. You know me from days gone by You see my reflection gazing into your eyes I am the dark I am the light And yes, I’m calling you home Your pain………. I see you so twisted and torn You say you wished you’d Never been born I’ll dry your eyes with Fire! Wake up ……….

Little girl lost her stars they never shine there’s no turning back the clock there’s no getting out alive Just a changing of the guard she gives her hand away The night is hers and hers alone in blood the price was paid Little girl lost she paints the town red Bewitching dirty souls of so called angry young men She knows exactly what she needs and what it is she craves A pact was made the letters signed in blood the price was paid Kiss………. Kill………. Cry………. In blood the price was paid I think she likes it I think she likes it I think she likes it I think she likes it hot! Little girl lost she’s a mysterious muse Her nightmare it’s beginning and it’s ending with you Little girl lost I see her waiting in the wings She’s a stalker by day at night a weaver of dreams Little girl lost so sad and so cruel She’ll make you bleed it’s for the art a picture of a fool Little girl lost it’s with you she’ll have her way The night is hers and hers alone in blood the price was paid Kiss………. Kill………. Cry………. In blood the price was paid (guitar solo) I think she likes it I think she likes it I think she likes it I think she likes it hot! (repeat 1st & 2nd verse) Violets are red, Violets are blue, She wakes the dead, Cuts them in two Two beating hearts, One bell to chime, Kiss them hello, Kill them goodbye Kiss them hello Kill them goodbye In blood..... The price..... Was paid.

There’s a note upon the door A single tear upon her face There’s an absent short straw Inside the hand that blood would stain Just how long (Demon) I’m your savior Before the bridge is all but burned Your my daughter In the deepest dark of night I will lead your There was a need to quench a thirst Lambs to slaughter

Strange fascination her eyes conjuring Spells invocations my soul hers to keep My Love………. Burns slow cuts deep My Love………. Sweet Misery I am the preacher! Under a blood red moon She is the collector! Of the unpolished jewel Games, incantations her thoughts turn the key Grave implications my soul, it hangs on a string My Love………. Burns slow cuts deep (Bridge) I am the preacher! Under a blood red moon She is the collector! Of the unpolished jewel Page turning ageless her books mine to read Days dark and shapeless my nights Never to sleep Never to sleep! Sweet Misery……..Burns slow cuts deep!

The morning finds her in a burned out motel all alone Trying to piece together the night before Was it just a dream? She puts on her overcoat And she cries….. all the way home. Cursed with a soul of solitude and deep regret She lived her life in vain and overture. A line was crossed in the dead of night while the angels slept And she cried….. all the way home. The night was black her eyes were the very same Feeling everything and nothing the pleasure the pain She walked for ages seduced by the misfits dream She hides in places that only the master can see! The harbinger of southbound souls has cast his spell. The girl recalls the note upon the door. Somethings missing, out of place how soon we forget And she cried….. all the way home. My oh my how time flys My oh my how time flys My oh my how time flys My oh my how time flys When your having..... fun? Hiding from the..... Sun Watching the blood.... run! My oh my how time flies When your having.......... fun The morning finds her in a burned out motel all alone Trying to piece together the night before Was it just a dream? She puts on her overcoat And she cries….. all the way home. Yes she cries.... all the way home My God she cries! All the way home

There’s no time to be restrained The irons hot the nights still young There’s a message in the rain A solemn vow to speak as one Silent prayer, to the Angels below It’s a part of you now Say the word I’ll take you home.

The silent ones who live to burn Will rise again we shall be heard. Just close your eyes and you will see The road you’re on was meant to be. Thy Will Be Done Our time has come Tis not a dream Nor fantasy Thy Will Be Done We’ll burn as one. A voice so old will call again The time has come for you my friends From dusk till dawn I’ll sing for thee Just close your eye’s I’ll set you free. Thy Will Be Done Our time has come Tis not a dream Nor fantasy Thy Will Be Done We’ll burn as one.

Angel 10:16
Idle hands come play with me, Our golden girls on bended knee Angel………. Angel………. Laughing eyes she fills with clouds The worm has turned her tears run south Angel………. Angel………. Won’t you play, play with me Won’t you play, play with me………. Count the days, days are numbered so are you Have no fear, angel dear I’ll play a song Just for you. Have no fear, angel dear I’ll play a song Just for you. Wave goodbye to smiling faces, all gone we hardly knew Wipe away the subtle traces, say goodnight to friend and fool. Eye to eye, hand in hand, sacrifice What once was be damned! Face to face, souls eclipsed, blood will spill Deep inside the pit! Wake the child who chases dark stars We share the lost art muse. Night and day they’re trading places. All gone we hardly knew. Eye to eye, true romance, sacrifice What once was be damned! We are naked in the circle Spinning round and round Nocturnal flames You and I are so much more Together than we were before the rain We are Gods before the fall We have no need to kneel are crawl in chains We have no need to kneel or crawl in chains! Angel………. Angel………. Angel………. Won’t you play, play with me. Won’t you play, play with me. Won’t you play, play with me Won’t you play, play with………. me

I feel the presence of a spirit gone astray All to familiar I’m sure our paths crossed ways There’s just no doubt about it My visions they are true The siren sings for me an old forgotten tune Some other place………. Another time we touched the flame Some other place………. Another time beyond the grave. I read the warning signs The meanings they were clear I tried to fight it but the attraction Draws me near Her ageless face, my faded dreams It all comes back to me yet nothings as it seems Some other place………. Another time we touched the flame Some other place………. Another time beyond the grave . The preacher : So………. Tell me a little about yourself. Just exactly where were you born? Where did you go to school? And your parents? Did they give you a proper religious upbringing? Please tell me Do you believe in God? The Devil: Jump………. Jump………. Into the fire, Into the fire. Jump………. Jump………. She knows who I am Into the fire, Into the fire. And I know Jump………. Jump………. She belongs to me

You signed the contract I did you some favors So why such a frown on my low flying angel I told you my secrets of all that is sacred I gave you the apple you loved how it tasted The sweetest of sins were all yours for the taking I’ve withheld you nothing in turn your forsaken Your toys are all broken we had an arrangement Your better off dead! (Drink the wine, Draw the blade, Break the glass times up) Your better off dead! Gone are the flowers their pressed between pages So lifeless and hallow a soul with no traces Of anything holy the queen of disgraces I gave you a party I made your acquaintance We had a few drinks and we shared a good laugh You waltzed round the room with a figure in black You gave me your word you just can’t take it back Your better off dead! (Drink the wine, Draw the blade, Break the glass times up) Your better off dead! Just let go……… (Guitar solo) You signed the contract I did you some favors So why such a frown on my low flying angel I told you my secrets of all that is sacred (The devil) I gave you the apple you loved how it tasted Your better off dead The sweetest of sins were all yours for the taking I’ve withheld you nothing in turn your forsaken Your toys are all broken we had an arrangement We had an arrangement We had an arrangement We had an arrangement

My Angels singing the serpent song Angel...... Angel...... Angel...... Wake up!

about

"The band name: Eternal Nocturne the project: "The Invitation" The music is in the theatrical goth rock realm filled with synth orchestrations, over the top affect driven vocals narrating a conceptually loose story line that revolves around 2 characters "Angel" & "The Preacher" Two deeply flawed characters with an unbreakable bond that keeps them together while simultaneously being torn apart. These are just simple musings into the invisible ties that bind, that exist in spite of the insanity that fuels the connection. "Angel", a tortured young lady given a second chance at life when she meets up with the devil at the end of her previous incarnation offering her an "Invitation" one that she readily accepts to seek vengeance on a world that threw her away. "The Preacher" A man of impeccable virtue and a heart of gold acquires a twisted affection for this lost soul that drives him to follow her to hell and back over and over again." Michael Emerson
