lyrics

THE MESSENGER
H.P. Lovecraft (November 1929)



The thing, he said, would come that night at three
From the old churchyard on the hill below;
But crouching by an oak fire’s wholesome glow,
I tried to tell myself it could not be. it could not be

Then at the door that cautious rattling came
And the mad truth devoured me like a flame!

Surely, I mused, it was a pleasantry
Devised by one who did not truly know
The Elder Sign, bequeathed from long ago,
That sets the fumbling forms of darkness free.

Then at the door that cautious rattling came
And the mad truth devoured me like a flame!
... like a flame

He had not meant it no but still I lit
Another lamp as starry Leo climbed
Out of the Seekonk, and a steeple chimed
Three and the firelight faded, bit by bit.

Then at the door that cautious rattling came
And the mad truth devoured me like a flame!
Then at the door that cautious rattling came
And the mad truth devoured me like a flame!
Then at the door that cautious rattling came
And the mad truth devoured me like a flame!
