Tina Guo acoustic cello solo

Courtney Gains (Frank Elwood)
There’s a haunted town full of whispered tales
About a creaking house of mystery
This brooding, moldy tomb
With a crooked garret room
Hides a devilish history

Centuries ago in a pious, fearful town
A witch stood trial for being godless
Sentenced to be hung at dawn
On the prison walls she’d drawn
Lines and curves, then she vanished

John Franklin (Father Iwanicki)
Her disappearance never was explained
Be it Satan’s work or sorceries attained

Father & Frank
Stay the night and soon you’ll be aroused

Some say she lingers still…
In the Witch House

Come ye troubled souls, gather around in prayer
For heinous deeds, you’ve all been sentenced
God tested Abraham
Who sacrificed his son Isaac
Spared, for your repentance!

Confined to Arkham Penitentiary
Pray to God and quell your treachery
Confess your sins and soon you’ll be devout
In this lockup also known…

Father & Frank
As the Witch House

Tina Guo electric cello solo

Bruce Kulick acoustic guitar solo

Behind these slanting walls, a lurking place
Unbounded void transcending time and space

Just stay the night and soon you’ll be aroused
Some say she lingers still
In the Witch House

Douglas Blair electric guitar lead

Alaine Kashian (The Witch / Keziah Mason)
Behind these slanted walls a lurking place
Unbounded void transcending time and space
Stay the night and leave no room for doubt
You’ll suffer fevered dreams
In the Witch House

Within these moldy, dank walls
A new born baby cries
A wicked rat roams it’s the Devil in disguise

In the Witch House

Benedictus dominus
Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord
