The Conqueror Worm

from by General Lee

/

lyrics

...but see, amid the mimic rout,
a crawling shape intrude!
a blood-red thing that writhes from out
the scenic solitude!

It writhes with mortal pangs

the mimes become / become its food,
and seraphs sob / at vermin fangs
In human gore imbued.

turn off the bright lights
turn off the bright lights
turn off the bright lights
It comes
a crawling shape intrude!
a blood-red thing that writhes from out
a blood-red thing that writhes from out

out comes the worm - the conqueror worm

he wishes he'd be the king
ruling the streets all alone

out comes the worm - the conqueror worm
