  • Thou shalt not kill
    Thou shalt not die

    Cry!

    Last fire will rise
    Behind those eyes
    Black house will rock
    Blind boys don't lie

    Immortal fear
    That voice so clear
    Through broken walls
    That scream I hear

    Cry, little sister! (Thou shalt not fall)
    Come, come to your brother! (Thou shalt not die)
    Unchain me, sister! (Thou shalt not fear)
    Love is with your brother! (Thou shalt not kill)

    Blue masquerade
    Strangers look on
    When will they learn
    This loneliness?

    Temptation heat
    Beats like a drum
    Deep in your veins
    I will not lie

    Little sister! (Thou shalt not fall)
    Come, come to your brother! (Thou shalt not die)
    Unchain me, sister! (Thou shalt not fear)
    Love is with your brother! (Thou shalt not kill)

    My Shangri-Las
    I can't forget
    Why you were mine
    I need you now!

    Cry, little sister! (Thou shalt not fall)
    Come, come to your brother! (Thou shalt not die)
    Unchain me, sister! (Thou shalt not fear)
    Love is with your brother! (Thou shalt not kill)

    Cry, little sister! (Thou shalt not fall)
    Come, come to your brother! (Thou shalt not die)
    Unchain me, sister! (Thou shalt not fear)
    Love is with your brother! (Thou shalt not kill) Writer/s: Gerard McMahon, Michael Mainieri
