Here are all the lyrics from this Misfits album.


Famous Monsters (1999)

01 - Kong at the Gates

Instrumental.

02 - The Forbidden Zone
Some say that's where man began
On this wasted piece of land
Where evolution's yet to show...Forbidden Zone

Blasting into outer space
The Planet of the Apes
Evolution's one hero...

Crossing a plain, into another dimension
A million years into the future
Crossing a path into another dimension
We the unseen

Back on Earth it's all you read about
All the evidence destroyed

Maps and legends mark the firewalls
We lost abandoned saviors...
Of the Forbidden Zone

We shall sustain the Forbidden Zone

03 - Lost in Space
Of all the things they taught you, I'm telling you this, son
All the wars fought before won't compare to this one
Giant spiders prepare... to take over

Here comes another mutant suicide squad
You blast them out but now you're way off course
You start to shiver and shake
I'm calling you, Houston

Am I following...all of the right leads?
Or am I about to get lost in space?
When my time comes, they'll write my destiny
Will you take this ride?

All communication's lost, we crashed into the Earth
Too late to see a giant spider monster giving birth
The future is here... and here is the future

Am I following... all of the right leads?
Or am I about to get lost in space?
When my time comes, they'll write my destiny
Will you take this ride with me?

(Danger, Danger Will Robinson... Warning, Warning.)

04 - Dust to Dust
Hate you father
for you have sinned
Why did you, Lord
let this life begin?

I'm not your savior
I'm not your son
A forgotten boy
Abandoned creation

With these final words, I pull the switch
We turn to dust
Dust to Dust
My name is like the kiss of death, then we embrace
We turn to dust

Mother, Father
Answer me
Your soul-less son
Your thing that should not be

A brilliant demon
A Monster God
You gave me life
But took the soul away

With these final words, I pull the switch
We turn to dust
Dust to Dust
My name is like the kiss of death, then we embrace
We turn to dust
Ashes to ashes, Dust to Dust

We belong dead, we belong...

05 - Crawling Eye
It's such a steep climb
Up the mountain's south side
It has a cloud that acts in such peculiar ways

Accident count rising
A young girl prophesizing
To protect their race, they'll seize her mind

At this altitude, it's freezing
Aliens control human beings
No one has lived to tell
Who's seen the crawling eye?

These evil demon eyes
Under cloud cover hide
They have great tenacles to tear apart their prey

All these men are dying
Crawling eye decapitizing
Fiends without a face attack mankind

At this altitude, it's freezing
Aliens control human beings
No one has lived to tell
Who's seen the crawling eye?

06 - Witch Hunt
Wipe out the weak and dying
I've got no use for you
Sent from Hell, I know they're lying
Just another sacrifice

We are on a witch hunt
Hunt her down, for will she sink or float?
We want independace from her spell

Exterminate the undetermined
I've got no use for you
Sent from Hell, I know they're lying
Hang her by her neck to die

We are on a witch hunt
Hunt her down, for will she sink or float
We want independance from her spell

We're on a head hunt
We're on a blood hunt
We're on a witch hunt
And we're gonna get you
We're coming after you too

We're under a spell

07 - Scream!
A chill runs up your spine
It crawls into your brain
The freezing touch of fear

It's driving me insane
Although you try to fight
Dragged from the silence where you hide
'til you... Scream

Scream
I can't wait to hear you...
I can't wait to hear you...
Scream

It's driving me insane
Although you try to fight
Dragged from the silence where you hide
'til you... Scream

Scream
I can't wait to hear you...
I can't wait to hear you...
Scream

08 - Saturday Night
There's 52 ways to murder anyone
One or two are the same,
And they both work as well
I'm coming clean for Amy,
Julie doesn't scream as well
And the cops won't listen all night
And so maybe, maybe I'll be over
Just as soon as I fill them all in

And I can remember when I saw her last
We were running all around and having a blast
But the back seat of the drive-in
Is so lonely without you
I know when you're home
I was thinking about you,
There was was something I forgot to say
I was crying on a Saturday night
I was out cruising without you,
They were playing our song
Crying on Saturday night

As the moon becomes the night time
You go viciously, quietly away
I'm sitting in the bedroom,
Where we used to sit and smoke cigarettes
Now I'm watching, watching you die

I can remember when I saw her last
We were running all around and having a blast
But the back seat of the drive-in
Is so lonely without you
I know when you're home
I was thinking about you,
There was was something I forgot to say
I was crying on a Saturday night
I was out cruising without you,
They were playing our song
Crying on Saturday night

09 - Pumkin Head
Now this is the story
Of a good man named Ed
Left his son for a moment
Returned, found him dead

Recalls a tale as a boy he was told
Of an evil witch, so wicked, so old
Seeks a farmers advice he will not give
His oldest son knows just where the witch lived

He took Ed there but refused to go in
They boy knew what was about to begin
She had the power to avenge the dead
It cost your sould, now come with me Ed

I'm gonna take you where your body will lie
I'm gonna take you there, my friend
I'm gonna show you where your life will end
I'm gonna bring you here again

Dig up your grave, the old lady said
The thing we need lies here dormant, sleeping with the dead
You understand what you ask of me
Not even death can set your soul free

I cast this curse and you will find
An evil darkness deep inside your vengeful mind
God damn you to hell, he could not restrain
He already has son, the witch did explain

I'm gonna take you where your body will lie
I'm take you there, my friend
I'm gonna show you where your life will end
This curse I cast, you're Pumpkinhead!

10 - Scarecrow Man
Hangin' in a field, you'll never know I'm out here
I'm telling you people best beware
I creep into town, I'm hunting my prey
Back on my post by the crack of day

Lock your doors, watch your back, it's true
Turn around... how do you do
I'm the scarecrow man, I'm the Scarecrow Man

People dying every night
Mutilation's a terrible sight
Look 'round the victims real hard
Scarecrow's death, straw calling card

And I'm coming and killing, it's true
Turn around... how do you do
I'm the Scarecrow Man, the Scarecrow Man

I've come to kill you, I will
I'm gonna eat you, be still
I'm the Scarecrow Man, the Scarecrow Man

11 - Die Monster Die
First things first, Ms. Monroe rises from the dead
The henchmen came, knocked down the door
To my never never world

I hope you die... Die monster die
Die monster die

First things first, We must find out which mirror evil lives
I enter this door, look into the mirror
I don't recognize this face
It's lookin' back at me

I hope you die... Die monster die
Die monster die

There's a place where the mirror don't lie

12 - Living Hell
Imprisoned in this world of darkness few have known
A monster lusting blood and the hunger grows

Out on the streets, danger's real, the killer's still at large
A trail of death and sewers to the underground

I fell their fleeting life draw into my bones
Hear the heart that pounds, the blood that flows
Eternity, I damn thee, let me rot into the ground
As the empty veins collapse
Cast them down

Living Hell
I just can't go on...
In this living Hell

This town has worn thin, everyone knows
Panic in the news and the terror grows
A tunnel full of filth, escape into the night
Another hole to dwell in the underground

I feel their fleeting life draw into my bones
Hear the heart that pounds, the blood that flows
Eternity, I damn thee, let me rot into the ground
As the empty veins collapse
Cast them down

Living Hell
I just can't go on...
In this livng Hell

13 - Descending Angel
torn from the heavens
they fall from the sky
and walk the streets among
mortal men
they hide in shadows
keepers of the night
mortal life is weak
can't hold back the demons
the blood pours as rain
and soon you'll be alone.

whaaoo
descending angel
stand by my side
whaaoo
we'll face the night
descending angel
whaaoo
who guard the gates of hell
just one more night
whaaoo
for in the morning
will bring the light

born or created in the image
of a god the heavens fall
no savior has been sent
no one to guide us
alone we face the night
mortal life is brief
for the rebel angels
they make their final stand
and soon you'll be alone

whaaoo
descending angel
stand by my side
whaaoo
and face the night
descending angel
whaaoo
who guard the gates of hell
just one more night
whaooo
forever...ends...tonight
descending angel

14 - Them
Man's atomic age is here
Horrifying hordes appear

Exo-Skeleton armored
Exo-Skeleton might
Exo-Skeleton horror
Exo-skeleton bite

Beware of THEM!

Something wicked this way comes
Creepy crawling giant bugs

Exo-Skeleton amored
Exo-Skeleton might
Exo-Skeleton horror
Exo-Skeleton bite

Beware of THEM!

In the desert sands where they test the bombs
Came these man-made monsters
They'll try to breed
They'll fly by night
We must destroy these nests of the mutant ants
These man-made monsters
Their bodies burn
A gruesome site

Beware of THEM!

Evil is as humans do
Bible prophecy comes true

In the desert sands where they test the bombs
Came these man-made monsters
They'll try to breed
They'll fly by night
We must destroy these nests of the mutant ants
These man-made monsters
Their bodies burn
A gruesome site

Beware of THEM!

15 - Fiend Club
We won't pretend that this is the end
We're not losers all of the time
We march and we fall
We're one and for all
It's just evil all of the time...
All the time...

We are the fiend club
We are the fiend club
We are the fiend club
Not you! Not you!

You dress so messed up
Your hair is too long
But I'm changing all of the time
We march and we fall
We're one and for all
It's just evil all of the time
All of the time
Evil all the time

We are the fiend club
We are the fiend club
We are the fiend club
Not you! Not you!

We are the fiend club

16 - Hunting Humans
Upon this threshold of disaster
The birth of the eleventh plague
The fires burn at night, I begin to doubt the smell of burning flesh
Will ever fade away

The touch of death is all around us
A thousand corpses block our way
A man-made germ makes almost everyone commit suicide
Just to rise and eat their dead
Night of the living Dead...

We're hunting humans
We're hunting humans
We're hunting humans
It's killing time every day

I can't control this eerie feeling
An evil screaming in my head
I don't I'll last the night
There is no cure
For this genocide
Or resurrection of the dead
Night of the living Dead...

We're hunting humans...

17 - Helena
If I cut off your arms and cut off your legs
Would you still love me anyway?
If you're bound and you're gagged, draped and displayed
Would you still love me anyway?
Why don't you love me anyway?

Cutting with the knife, blood is spilling everywhere
She will be my wife
Secondary spine
Incisions must be accurate
I know just what to do
My hands are trembling
I can't spare to slip up with this knife

Her beauty so illogical
The beast come gliding in
Hideous chameleon stripped down to her skin
Dance to the burning flame
Pleasure exhumes the pain
The night bursts into flame
Dance Helena... Dance

If I cut off your arms and cut off your legs
Would you still love me anyway?
There's a spot on the floor where your limbs used to be
And I close the door on my fantasies
Why don't you love me anyway?

Helena!

18 - Kong Unleashed
Instrumental.

19 - 1000000 Years Bc
They're calling me, creatures of the night
Beautiful music
Animal instincts survived

The serpent's tongue
So ancient before the dawn of time
Fed throughout the ages
On the blood of mankind

I've seen it all
From grace men fall
Babylon
Curse of all creations
Winged serpent of the pit
Monstrosity

One milling years BC

Ten thousand centuries ago
Cast down from Heaven
To pillage below

The serpent's eyes

20 - Devil Doll
Once upon a long time ago lived a humble puppet maker
His son lost and died
Blamed himself as he tried
To sell his soul ever after

I have the power if you have the nerve
You will be mine
My request you will serve
A flash of his tail and a spread of his wings
I hold the power
The devil did sing

Signed in blood along a dotted line
By the silence
Here's the soul of your boy
As I promised, in this toy
Pull his strings and hear my laughter

No use in trying, the damage is done
What have I done, oh, my beautiful son?
The deal has been sealed, signed, delivered to Hell
My deep, darkest secrets and no one to tell

Once upon a long time ago lived evil
Awakened to find that you're looking through the eyes
Of a madman's evil monster

Devil Doll, Devil Doll
Evil be thy master
Devil Doll, Devil Doll
Evil be thy master

No use in trying, the damage is done
What have I done, oh, my beautiful son?
The deal has been sealed, signed, delivered to Hell
My deep, darkest secrets and no one to tell

Awakened to find that you're looking through the eyes
Of a madman's evil monster

Evil be thy master
A madman's evil monster
Evil be thy master

21 - Helena 2
If I cut off your arms and cut off your legs
Would you still love me anyway?
If you're bound and you're gagged, draped and displayed
Would you still love me anyway?

Why don't you love me anyway?
Why don't you love me anyway?

If I cut off your arms and cut off your legs
Would you still love me anyway?
If you're bound and you're gagged, draped and displayed
Would you still love me, love me anyway

Why don't you love me anyway?
Why don't you love me anyway?
Why don't you love me anyway?
Why don't you love me anyway?

Go!

Cutting with a knife, blood is spilling everywhere
She will be my wife, secondary spine
Incisions must be accurate, I know just what to do
My hands are trembling I can't spare to slip up with this knife

Her beauty so illogical, the beast come gliding in
Hideous chameleon stripped down to her skin
Dance to the burning flame, pleasure exhumes the pain
The night bursts into flame

Dance, Helena, dance
Woooah oooooh!

If I cut off your arms and cut off your legs
Would you still love me anyway?
There's a spot on the floor where your limbs used to be
And I close the door on my fantasies

Why don't you love me anyway?
Why don't you love me anyway? (Dance)
Why don't you love me anyway? (Helena)
Why don't you love me anyway? (Helena)
