Curse of the Mummy's Tomb Songtext

Do you find yourself in darkness?
Do you find yourself in light?
That's a question I want answered
Could you answer me tonight?

Could you give me some directions
In this cave of after life?
Do I struggle with my conscience
As it struggles with my life?

In this blackness that surrounds me
But doesn't give me any room
There's so much that I forget
Is that the curse of the mummy's tomb?

We're all the bold explorer
We all seek gold and fame
Out asking for directions
To the house that knows no pain

And the casual traveler wonders
Who led us all astray?
As he leans against the bar
And watches children play

In the blackness that surrounds them
Where there's never any room
But he's following his own quest
For the curse of the mummy's tomb

There are riches here you cannot sell
So value them we don't
There are spies at every corner
Please, help us they say "Won't"

There are special traps of wisdom
Devised to seize the fool
To entomb him with the mummy's gold
There are demons who shout "Duel"

But I'm too busy with my conscience
I'm too busy with my gloom
Can you rid me of the fever?
That's the curse of the mummy's tomb

We started out together
Our expeditions linked
But every student has a theory
The best he's ever thinked

And our vanity betrays us
And our nerve, it disappears
After crossing the dark threshold
Into loneliness and tears

Could I travel into caves unknown
Hear the dullest thud of doom?
Can I wander noisy silence?
That's the curse of the mummy's tomb

Buried deep within the mountain
In the valley of the king
There's a passage way that leads there
Where the wind whistles and sings

Of a time so long forgotten
It seems like yesterday
When the queen was in her palace
And the king was on his way

To the bosom of his family
To the holy golden womb
Well, was that love?
That's the curse of the mummy's tomb

If you want to know what happened here
There is writing on the wall
There are strange signs and ornaments
That'll really tell you all

But they're easy to misunderstand
You have to tell the truth
That's how you find the secret
Of her eternal youth

There are curses that are blessings
There are clues in every room
It's up to you now
That's the curse of the mummy's tomb

Nobody there to help you
As the apparition nears
Nobody loves like she did
Could take away your fears

Was this what you were afraid of
Life without a queen?
Forget it just remember
This life is but a dream

And you know that hope's returning
Like a new bride to the groom
There's no curse
Just a mummy's tomb

Mummy's tomb, mummy's tomb
