Verse a

1: (0:18-)

~~~~~~~~~

|

Caught the chaos in the market square; I don't know

|

what, I don't know why, but something's wrong down there

|

Their bodies twisting, and turning in a thousand ways

|

The eyes are rolling round and round into a distant gaze

||

Ah, look at that crowd!

Chorus a

(0:43-)

<enter drums="" and="" guitar="">

~~~~~~~~~

Some are jumping up in the air - say

|

"We're drowning in a torrent of blood!"

|

|

Others going down on their knees seen a

|

saviour coming out of the mud

|

Verse b

(1:07-)

~~~~~~~

|

Oh Mother! It's eating out my soul,

|

De-stroying one a-nother, I'm going to lose con-trol

|

What can I do to stop this plague, spread by sight alone

|

Just a glimpse and then a quiver, then they shiver to the bone

||

Ah, look at them go!

Chorus b

1: (1:31-)

~~~~~~~~~~

Bunderschaft, you going daft?

|

Better seal off the castle grounds

|

|

"This is Moribund, the Burgermeister,

|

I'm going to keep this monster down"

|

Somebody sent the sub-versive element

|

I'm going to chase it out of town

|

Verse a

2] (2:30-)

This thing's outrageous, I tell you on the level,

It's really so contagious, must be the work of the devil

You better go now, pick up the pipers, tell them to play

Seems the music keeps them quiet, there is no other way

Ah, close the doors!

Chorus b

2] (2:55-)

"We've tried potions and waxen dolls,

but none of use could find any cures,"

Mother please, is it just a disease has them

breaking all my laws?

Check if you can disconnect the effect,

and I'll go after the cause

Coda
