about

A track inspired by Brian "Q" Quinn's tale of the Prussian Kissing Devil on Tell 'Em Steve-Dave episode 313: 4th and Down.

The track is also heavily influenced by King Diamond. I mean, why WOULDN'T it be with this subject matter?

lyrics

As I drove on Thanksgiving
Travelling past various stores
I caught glimpse of one that stuck in my mind
And I kept hearing the voice
I heard it call through the window
A voice in the back of my head
"Go into the store,
your answers lie ahead"
I stepped inside
an old man called to me
He told me about the skull in his care
and the gifts it receives
"This skull belonged to a satanic beast
Who preyed on the village he was cast out
They killed him and his soul resides in this skull
A gift of money will reduce your problems to null"

Chorus:
I felt the lure of the kissing skull calling to me
I felt the lure of the kissing skull, how can this be?
I don't believe, do I believe?
I must go back for the skull this eve!

I succumbed to my temptation
I left money for the soul of the demon
And continued on my way
To my final destination
During the night the fog of my mind was lifted
Revealing the answers to me
The skull has fulfilled it's half of the bargain
I must see it's visage again
I went back to the store to find the old man gone
Replaced by his grandson
The old man died after I left the skull's gift
Once again the skull calls to me
I offer to buy the mystical item
Eventually meeting an agreement
The grin of the devil showing as I take it away
The skull now in my possession

Chorus:
I felt the lure of the kissing skull calling to me
I felt the lure of the kissing skull, how can this be?
I don't believe, do I believe?
I must go back for the skull this eve!

Should I test it's power?
Should I test it's curse?
If that old man lost his life
Things may only get worse

Chorus:
I felt the lure of the kissing skull calling to me
I felt the lure of the kissing skull, how can this be?
I don't believe, do I believe?
I must go back for the skull this eve!

Our fate is sealed, the skull's power waiting to be revealed!
