The Conjuring

Album: Peace Sells... But Who's Buying? (1986)
  • Welcome to our sanguinary sect or worship
    Feel at home in our black conventicle
    As we anathmastise
    All those who oppose us.
    Don't summon the devil,
    Don't call the priests
    If you need the strength,
    The conjuring, obey!
    Behold! the flames rise
    From the compass' cardinal points
    Burn the sacred oil,
    And with the ashes you'll annoint
    Arrange the symbols
    Of the wizard and magician.
    Light the candles,
    Place the parchment paper in position
    Between its leaves place
    The lash from a black cat's eye,
    A straw of a broom,
    Fold, burn and centralize.
    Don't summon the devil,
    Don't call the priests
    If you need the strength,
    The conjuring.
    I am the devil's advocate
    A salesman, if you will.
    You know my name.
    I met your father years ago
    Gave him what he'd please.
    He called my name, you'll do the same.
    I'm claiming what is mine by right
    It's time to close the deal.
    You're bought and sold, bought and sold.
    Come join me in my infernal depths,
    Mephisto's Hall of Fame
    I've got your soul, I've got your soul.
    The conjuring. Obey! Writer/s: DAVE MUSTAINE
