Creature Feature - Dead Next Door Lyrics




There's a decaying house by the cemetery
Not a soul can be caught passing there after dark
Someone lives there unseen, left in solitary
An estate bordering the city of the dead

Every night in the midst of the witching hour
A dark shape can be seen silently treading the graves
What grim madness occurs, quiet as a whisper
A ghoul haunts the headstones under the veil of fog

What does he do at night?
Concealed and out of sight
Digging by lantern-light in the graveyard
On the outskirts of town
Working without a sound
Six feet into the ground in the graveyard

Long before the moon wanes over the ossuary
A lone phantom departs, fleeing without a trace
Now the graves are empty, hidden by the shadows
The departed inside vanished without a trace

What does he do at night?
Concealed and out of sight
Digging by lantern-light in the graveyard
On the outskirts of town
Working without a sound
Six feet into the ground in the graveyard

What lies in this quiet home?
Down and from the catacombs
What's inside of every room?
Bodies snatched from their tombs
Corpses posed in effigy
Exhumed a new family

What does he do at night?
Concealed and out of sight
Digging by lantern-light in the graveyard
On the outskirts of town
Working without a sound
Six feet into the ground in the graveyard

    I think this song is connected to their other song Grave Robber At Large.

    @Grandpa SlickAnyone notice a sequel to Buried Alive? That was my favorite off the old greatest show, so I'd like to know if there is one on this album meant to be a spiritual successor.

    Grandpa Slick

    @CaptainSpanky96 Well, as the main character of "Buried Alive" seems to be influenced by Lovecraftian beasts, I don't beliece there is any direct sequel. The closest one that may be is "The Creeps", though I consider it to be closer connected to "The Unearthly Ones". Our problem is that not all of the songs have a known connection, such as (from my limited knowledge) "The Meek Shall Inherit The Earth".

    @Grandpa Slick Ah, I see. Thanks.

    @Mist-heart OH HEY MIST Same hat about thinking this is about Ed Gein tbh.

    Death by Proxy

    Anyone know if this album has a sequel to “Such Horrible Things”? I feel like each album so far has had a song with similar themes, like “Bad Blood” and “A Feast for the Worms”
