Dance Of The Dead

Dance Of The Dead

When the dead get up to dance - they sing a song of death
When the dead get up to dance - they sing without a breath
Ah the dead get up to dance - they move away the stones
Yeah the dead get up to dance - And they shake their sticks and bones

And the moon is in the sky (dead can dance)
And the gentlemen go by

When the dead get up to dance - In the blackest night of all
Ah the dead get up to dance - Dont you follow if they call
When the dead get up to dance - they make a merry hell
The dead get up to dance - And the devil comes as well

And the moon is in the sky (dead can dance)
And the gentlemen go by (dead can dance)
Rattle and roll and shake your funny bones
From cradle to the rave - To the final masquerade
We're dancing on our graves - And the piper must be paid

When the dead get up to dance - Will you join the serenade
When the dead get up to dance - Will you follow their parade
If the dead get up to dance - Don’t be hiding in your bed
If the dead get up to dance - It’s too late for you, you’re dead

And the moon is in the sky (dead can dance)
And the gentlemen go by (dead can dance)
Rattle and roll and shake your funny bones
From cradle to the rave - To the final masquerade
We're dancing on our graves - And the piper must be paid

Welcome to the Wake - Of the final tidal wave
when the earth - begins to quake - Dead Can Dance

And the moon is in the sky (dead can dance)
And the gentlemen go by (dead can dance)
Rattle and roll and shake your funny bones
From cradle to the rave - To the final masquerade
We're dancing on our graves - And the piper must be paid
From cradle to the rave - To the final masquerade
No one will be saved - And the piper must be paid
