    Lyrics

    When a woman acquires a certain age
    And the men who adored you no longer swoon
    It pays to avoid the sunlit days
    And live by the light of the kindly moon

    But the moon grows old just like us all
    And her beautiful years are done
    So now she prays through endless days
    To take her revenge on the sun

    When I was a girl at my daddy's side
    Papa, the royal mortician
    Revealed to me in secret signs
    The mark of the magician

    And daddy was no dummy
    Did outrageous things with a mummy
    And often the stiffs that he would drive
    Would look better dead than they did alive

    I studied well I learnt the trade
    I thought my looks would never fade
    If I could find that recipe
    To give eternal youth to me

    It was always my ambition
    To use papa's tuition
    And gain some small remission
    From the vagaries of time

    Every little ray of sunshine robs me of my youth
    Who to blame? Who the one? Who to curse?
    You know the only on to blame
    Would be my enemy the sun

    Snuff out the light, claim your right
    To a world of darkness
    Snuff out the light, neophytes
    Of a world of darkness

    Supai baby, turn me on
    Every wrinkle soon be gone
    I could squeeze myself with glee
    The promises you made to me

    I've really stopped at nothing
    Murder, treachery and lying
    Whatever it takes to keep my looks
    You really can't blame a girl for trying

    Snuff out the light, claim your right
    To a world of darkness
    Snuff out the light, neophytes
    Of a world of darkness

    Snuff out the light, claim your right
    To a world of darkness
    Snuff out the light here tonight

    Apparitions of eternal darkness
    Spiraling in circles through the night
    Creatures of beguiling blackness
    No more squinting in the light

    Bats and owls and coiled sea dragons
    Crocodile and carrion beasts
    Swirling in the growing darkness
    Join us in the coming feast

    Spectre wraith and apparition
    Spirit demon phantom shade
    Salamander serpents, dog-faced devils
    Dance and watch the dying sunlight fade
