Lyrics
Hail the black redeemer, how long you been away
Caliph of the darkness, I miss you every day
I got this terrible feeling and don't know what to say
Show me how to face the morning, teach me how to play

The bad man keeps a callin' - He's hungry for my soul
But down to you I'm coming, When death collects his toll
The symbols on my door are changing every day
So hail the prince of doom and darkness - Help me on my way

Down to your world go I
Into your flames I fly

Master of the Moonlight, visit me this day
Tell me what I want to know and help me fly away
Let me feel the fire melt into my soul
Send the baking desert wind from pole to frozen pole

With your breath of fire fan this deathly mask
Let the needle kiss my vein and give me all I ask
Please don't let the dealer's heart grow hard if I can't pay
Hail the prince of Doom and Darkness - Help me on my way

Down to your world go I
Into your flames I fly
