Here are all the lyrics from this The Darkest Of The Hillside Thickets album.


01 - Goin' Down To Dunwich
"The Dunwich Horror" sample:
No, I have to go back to Dunwich tonight. As a matter of fact, I should get moving, or I'll miss my bus.

Sung:
(Hey Hey!)
Noise from the barn today
(Hey Hey!)
What's in the attic?
(Hey Hey!)
What did the Arab say?
(Hey Hey!)
Senses erratic

(More More!)
Don't open that door
(More More!)
It's an encasement
(More More!)
Slime on the kitchen floor
(More More!)
Fog from the basement

I'm going down to Dunwich
Please don't bother waiting up
I'm going down to Dunwich
Please don't bother waiting up
I'm going down to Dunwich
Please don't bother waiting up
I'm going down to Dunwich
Please don't bother waiting

(No No!)
Into the box you go
(No No!)
Invisible mass
(No No!)
Feed it and watch it grow
(No No!)
Fissuring gas

(Hey Hey!)
Killed any cows today?
(Iä! Iä!)
Yog-Sothoth
(Hey Hey!)
Leaving a trail of grey
(Hey Hey!)
Festering broth

(I'm going, I'm going down)

Spoken:
I'm going down to Dunwich, where the town is sleepy and the people are creepy.
I'm going down to Dunwich... I'm going down and I'm not coming back!

Sung:
I'm going down to Dunwich
Please don't bother waiting up
I'm going down to Dunwich
Please don't bother waiting up
I'm going down to Dunwich
Please don't bother waiting up
I'm going down to Dunwich
Please don't bother waiting up

02 - Ogdru Jahad
ONCE... WE... WERE... FREE...
ONCE... WE... WERE... FREE...

They whispered of a prison
Ragnarok engine humming
Wrapped they in darkness dreaming
They are the mighty children
Behold the Doomsday project
Frog legions bear their vessel
Seven in Earth and Heaven

ONCE... WE... WERE... FREE...
ONCE... WE... WERE... FREE...

And underneath the desert
Encased in frozen bedrock
Stack sleeping agents waiting
To see the gates burn open
The desert rip asunder
They grind the land like corn
Bleed oily peals of thunder

Above the tortured heavens
So full of silent waiting
Howl screams of birth and triumph
Unlock the faceless hating
Bred in the depths of ocean
Of giant strength and tread
No hands defy their windstorm

ONCE... WE... WERE... FREE...

03 - Shoggoths Away
While on a flight one day I passed over the polar city
And curious zipped down to see what I could glean
Behold the nightmare pit that splashed with piping shapeless monsters
I packed them in the bay of my B-17

Shoggoths away
That's what I say
Shoggoths away
Hey, hey

Nobody wants my mindless iridescent protoplasms
They said to fly them out and drop them in the sea
I tried to sell them on their mimicking adaptive powers
"Why don't you get your oily tendrils offa me?"

Shoggoths away
Today's the day
Shoggoths away
Hey, hey

Yes they can form and unform countless limbs and sensing organs
Like a stomach turned inside out and salient
I picture countless plastic beasties falling from the sky and
Dropping like sacks of wet cement

04 - Unstoppable
Well, you just had to do that
Well, you're as gone as dirt
Well, now you're gonna get it
And, boy it's gonna hurt

I've elbowed with the Old Ones
Kai of Ancient Khem
They sent me little pressies
And you're my gift to them

You can't stop me now
You Can't ever stop me
(repeat 2x)

You'd better lock the shutters
You'd better say your prayers
It's weaving through the angles
I feel the shifting air

Well, you just stay on your side
You stay out of my room
Well, don't you even touch that
Or you have sealed your doom

You sealed it!

You can't stop me now
You Can't ever stop me
(repeat 2x)

"I feel a slight change, a tingling in the back of my skull...
I can sense things in-between the spheres we know, liquid yet organic, dimly at first, but growing. I can't touch them. They blink in and out of existence. Rubbery, translucent, is it all a hallucination, a dream? Am I loosing my mind, or am I reaching a new state of awareness? It's an awakening of some kind, damnedest thing. I just want to live like the others. I shake my head and rinse my eyes. God help me, save me!" (source unknown)

Well, you just had to do that
Well, you're as gone as dirt
Well, now you're gonna get it
And, boy it's gonna hurt

I've elbowed with the Old Ones
Kai of Ancient Khem
They sent me little pressies
And you're my gift to them

You can't stop me now
You Can't ever stop me
(repeat 4x)

05 - Yig Snake Daddy
We set out for Oklahoma at a quarter to nine
We had a trunk full of hardware and a bottle of space brine

Well they gave us peyote, wouldn't tell us a thing
Until an Indian grocer told us 'Yig is the King'

Yig Snake Daddy we come lookin' for you
We got a bored-out Chevy and a twelve pack of brew
Well we're a right-miffed party and it's easy to see
We've got a one-way ticket to the pit of insanity

With an eye full of sun, and a mouth full of grit
We awoke to the hissing in the heart of a snake pit

Well we almost all died and Johnny's out of his mind
And though we never found Yig we had a hell of a good time

Yig Snake Daddy we come lookin' for you
We got a bored-out Chevy and a twelve pack of brew
Well we're a right-miffed party and it's easy to see
We've got a one-way ticket to the pit of insanity

06 - Hookworm
Goddamn it, I can see them
Crawling just under my skin
They're leaving tracks in my fat
How'm I gonna get rid of them?
There's holes all through my privates
They hide between my hairs
They hang on with their tiny teeth

Take me away from here
Kill me you hookworm
Take me away from here
Drill me you hookworm

Your wings are cold with travel
Your tools are on the way
My mind will soon be leaving here
Just leave my body where you may
Brought to the rim of knowledge
Drilled deep into my skull
The buzzing eats away my mind

Take me away from here
Drill me you hookworm
Take me away from here
Kill me you hookworm

Today my knee split open
Out squirmed a mass of worms
So small and flat and white
Through my dry and rotten flesh

Like a shot from a comet's eye
Silent howls slip in from the sky
It's Yuggoth on the Outer Rim

07 - Wrath
Instrumental

08 - Rock Lords
We feed on iron ore
We'll burrow through your planet
Straight to its white-hot core
We bathe in molten granite.

Tonight the mountains walk
Our reign is never-ending
Our veins are caked with chalk
Seas parting, forests bending

09 - Protein
Cut off her ears
She didn't want to hear
The voice, the gods
She didn't seem to fear

She is not of the water
I took her piece by piece
This planet's getting hotter
There's got to be a better way

[Chorus]
She's dead, that's fine
It's the kind of work that suits me[x3]

She's dead, that's fine
It's the kind of work...

I had a dream
The crawling chaos said
I need for you to
Fill everyone with lead

He filled me up with protein
I gave the magic sign
He gave me x-ray vision
And now the world is mine

She's dead, that's fine
It's the kind of work that suits me[x3]

She's dead, that's fine
I'm ready

10 - HVW
[Who knows?]

11 - Burrow Your Way To My Heart
When you were a little girl you were stung by a wasp
And the skin on your arm puffed up and went red
Yet you so loved that wasp and all of his brothers that you
Brought the whole damn angry hive into your
Right into your bed

As a child you were riddled with ringworm
So your father cut them out of your skin
Then you felt so alone and remorseful
You tracked each little worm down and put them back in

Have you ever tried to neck with an earwig
Oh, your body is a home to your friends
You've a tick for each nipple and a leech for each finger
And a parasitic love that never ends

Do you have any love left for me
I'm small, but that's a start
Eat me up with your love
Burrow your way to my heart
Do you have any love left for me
I'm small, that's a start
Eat me up with your love, please
Burrow your way to my heart

12 - Sloth
Instrumental

13 - Worship Me Like A God
[Don't have a copy of these, sorry]

14 - Cthulhu Dreams
Cthulhu dreams in the deep blue sea
His tentacles spreading endlessly
Far be it for you or me
Resist his horrible energy

[Also many spoken parts which I haven't included.]

15 - Gluttony
Instrumental

16 - Slave Ship (2003 Special Edition reissue only)
Off in the distance rises up a mighty roar
I look around to see I'm not touching the floor
I'm just a pawn in ancient pan-galactic wars
To mine the Ether Ore is my eternal chore
Not here, not now, not any more
I'm tired and my head is sore

Asteroids live and breathe, and planets fall in love
Bat-beings groan and seem to fit you like a glove
Traverse Orion's leg in the blink of an eye
Warm hands at dying suns and boiling midnight skies
No day or night, eternal vacuum hard and cold
I slave where time is growing old

Slave ship!

Slave ship, we're on another run
Slave ship, we're on another run
Slave ship, we're on another run
Into the dying sun!

17 - House of Clocks (2003 Special Edition reissue only)
House of Clocks sample:

"I suppose you collect clocks, don't you?"
"They're just like children to me."

Sung:

The premise, basically:
A modern tragedy
Disdained senility
Gore-tempered novelty
An inability
For cold reality

The clocks are the main thing
And they'll start reversing
The clocks are the main thing
And they'll start reversing
And then the dead are getting up

The servant ends up dead
Just like the newlyweds
Somewhat unwarranted
Nails driven in their heads
Enter the spirited
Punks with their egos fed

The clocks are the main thing
And they'll start reversing
The clocks are the main thing
And they'll start reversing
And then the dead are getting up

They expedite the plan
The gardener kills the gran
Then Punk One kills the man
That's when it all began
They should have watched the hands
They couldn't understand

The clocks are the main thing
And they'll start reversing
The clocks are the main thing
And they'll start reversing
You'd think that they would have had enough
