1. Funeral

“We are gathered here tonight
to lay to rest Abigail LaFey,
whom we now know was first born
dead on The 7th Day of July 1777.

Abigail must be nailed to
her coffin with 7 silver spikes.

1 through each arm, hand and knee
and let the last of the 7 be drawn
through her mouth so that she may
never rise and cause evil again.

Who will be the first?”

“I, O’Brian of the Black Horsemen.”

2. Arrival

“That must be it”.

Through the summer rain of 1845
the coach had finally arrived to the valley
where the crossroads meet below
and where all darkness seems to grow.

People blame it on the Hill,
the hill where no one dares to go,
the mansion where no one dares to go.

The coach had stopped and from the
window you could see 7 horsemen in the night.
Miriam Natias and Jonathan LaFey
saw the magic in their eyes.

They were in for a surprise,
the darkness would soon be complete.
A horseman came forth from the dark!

“We know you’ve come
to inherit what’s yours, the mansion.
Take our advise and go back on this night,
if you refuse 18 will become 9”.

18 is 9…

Jonathan laughed and said
“Get out of my way, I don’t believe a word you say”.
The 7 horsemen disappeared into the night,
“Someday you’ll need our help my friend”.

I think poor Jonathan was scared,
18 is actually 9, it stuck in his mind.

3. A Mansion in Darkness

Riding up the alley in the rain,
no lights to show the way.
How could this ever be their home?

Through the darkness you could only
see a giant shadow which was to be
a house where evil ruled at night.

And the shadows at the gate,
they seemed to be alive,
yeah the shadows at the gate.


Everything inside was left untouched
except for what the rats had got and the
dust of time that showed its mark.

Armed with candlelight and open eyes
hrough the dark they fought their way
’til every room was lit again.

And the house began to breathe,
it seemed to be alive,
yeah the house began to breathe.


As the candlelight began to fade
and Jonathan said “Let’s go to bed”,
the fireplace had ceased to burn.

Both were fast asleep before
the dawn, dreaming, dreaming.
They did not know about the shadow.

Yeah the shadow on the wall.
It really came alive.
Yeah the shadow on the wall,

4. The Family Ghost

The darkness came closer
to home on the following night,
and Miriam slept like a rock when
Jonathan’s face went white.

The bedroom was ice cold
but the fire was burning still.
The blinding light, the Family
Ghost had risen again.

The Ghost!

“Don’t be scared,
don’t be scared now my friend!
I am Count de LaFey, let me take you to
the crypt down below where Abigail rests.

Let Miriam sleep,
she never would understand.
Now come let us go, it’s time to know”.

“Beware of the slippery stairs,
you could easily fall and break your neck.
Hand me that torch and I will lead the
way to the secret in the dark.

Take a look into the vault,
the sarcophagus of a child.
Abigail has been in here for
years and years, stillborn”.


“The spirit of Abigail is inside your
wife and there’s only one way you
can stop the rebirth of Evil itself,
you must take her life now”.

5. The 7th Day of July 1777

Count de LaFey
uncovered his cheating wife.
9 months of loving and sharing,
oh it was a bastard child.

How could he have been so blind?

“No bastard baby
will inherit what’s mine”.
Another one of her affairs
had left him in despair.

So he pushed her down the stairs to die,
“No” she cried in 1777, on the 7th Day of July.

The Countess broke her neck
and the embryo came out dead.
Then he burned his beloved wife
and the embryo he gave a name.

“Abigail you must rest in shame,
rest in shame!”

Obsessed with a strange idea,
he wanted to mummify the girl
for the future to find and he did.

So he pushed her down the stairs to die,
“No” she cried in 1777, on the 7th Day of July.

6. Omens

Nobody’s inside the church
but the bell is ringing and for no
reason the flowers are dying.

Deadly omens…

Inside the mansion the air is
unbearable, a rotten smell,
and in the dinning room
the table is set for three.

Deadly omens…

“Miriam, come here and
see what I’ve found, it’s moving,
an empty cradle swaying in the air.
I did not bring it in here, did you?”.

Deadly omens…

7. The Possession

On the very next morning,
when the mist was eaten away by the sun,
Miriam grew hour by hour and Jonathan he cried.
He knew the ghost had been telling the truth!

So this was 9,
the pregnancy would
not last overnight.

Oh she started singing a lullaby,
rocking the cradle again and then she
said “I’m having your baby my love”
but it wasn’t love, oh no.

She was possessed and he knew!
“I will get what is rightfully mine…”

Speaking with different tongues,
Miriam was eaten alive from inside,
again she said “I’m having your baby my love”.
But it wasn’t love, oh no, she was possessed.


8. Abigail

“Abigail, I know you’re
in control of her brain, Abigail!
And I know that you’re the one that’s
speaking through her, Abigail.

Miriam can you hear me?”.

“I am alive inside your wife,
Miriam’s dead, I am her head.
I am alive inside your wife,
Miriam’s dead, I am her head”.

“Abigail, don’t you think I know
what you’ve done, Abigail.
I’ll get a priest, he will know how
to get her soul back”.

“Oh Jonathan, this is Miriam,
our time is out,remember the
stairs, the only way”.

“Abigail, nothing I can do but give in!
Abigail, follow me to the crypt!
Abigail, you aught to be reborn
where you died, Abigail”.

“Jonathan, I agree, yes I do”.

“I am alive inside your wife,
Miriam’s dead, I am her head,
soon I’ll be free!”.

9. Black Horsemen

So there they stood at the top of the stairs,
Miriam in the mood, Jonathan was scared,
gazing into the dark Jonathan saw the star.

For a second he turned his back
and she was there like a ghost,
she pushed him hard and clean
to the bottom of the stairs.

“Now we’re finally alone Miriam,
Abigail is here to stay”.

The birth of Abigail
would soon be realized,
the second coming of a
Devil in disguise.

The moon did not shine,
it was darker than ever before.
On this sacred night the soul of
Miriam was crying out in pain.

“Remembering the day, arrival in the rain”.

The pain of labour was
so strong that Miriam died,
and he final seeing was
a pair of yellow eyes.

You can still hear her screaming
if you’re walking the stairs in July.

Riding from beyond, the 7 Horsemen
would arrive before the dawn.
Servants of the Count when Abigail
was born the first time.

Oh no, they found her in the sarcophagus.
Baby Abigail was eating, oh I can not tell you.
“Take her and bring her to the chapel in the forest.
So go now, the ceremony and the coffin’s waiting”.

The Black Horsemen!

That’s the end of another lullaby,
time has come for me to say good night.
