Lyrics
Holy water cannot help you now
A thousand armies couldn't keep me out
I don't want your money
I don't want your crown
See I have to burn your kingdom down

Holy water cannot help you now
See I've come to burn your kingdom down
And no rivers and no lakes can put the fire out
I'm gonna raise the stakes, I'm gonna smoke you out

Seven devils all around you
Seven devils in my house
See they were there when I woke up this morning
And I'll be dead before the day is done

Seven devils all around you
Seven devils in your house
See I was dead when I woke up this morning
And I'll be dead before the day is done
Before the day is done
Before the day is done

And now all your love will be exorcised
And we will find your sayings to be paradox
And it's an even sum
It's a melody
It's a battle cry
It's a symphony

Seven devils all around you
Seven devils in my house
See they were there when I woke up this morning
I'll be dead before the day is done

Seven devils all around you
Seven devils in your house
See I was dead when I woke up this morning
I'll be dead before the day is done
Before the day is done
Before the day is done
Before the day is done

They can keep me alive -
'Til I tear the walls
'Til I slave your hearts
And they take your souls
For what has been done
Cannot be undone
In the evil's heart
In the evil's soul

Seven devils all around you
Seven devils in your house
See I was dead when I woke up this morning
I'll be dead before the day is done
Before the day is done

Oh man, Jonathan Rhys-Meyers, you beautiful creepy bastard ;_; I forgot I am actually still 15 and he is the best.

Thank you so much, festividder! You have made me very happy. I was going to list the parts that were my favourite, but then I felt like a bad person, because I just really love it when people meet horrible ends. And there are so many horrible ends to meet! And such dedicated plotting going into them all.

I have to go message my high school bestie now.

I'm so glad you liked it! :-D I had a LOT of fun making it, and spending hours staring at JRM's lovely face. And I had forgotten just how great the miniseries is! I'm glad there were enough horrible deaths in there for you :-P

Oh this was fantastic. Steerpike, and all the poor Groans! Melodic and creepy and really tightly put together. Well done.

Oh wow, this is every bit as creepy and gorgeous and epic as the source deserves. Song and subject work so well together, so much love for this.

I need to go rewatch this mini-series now...

Ahaha, yes! Do it! I had forgotten just how good the series was until I rewatched it to make this. I'm really glad you enjoyed it!

WOOO! I thought the miniseries was a bit lacking in parts (like Jonathan Rhys Meyers acting). You've distilled it down to its utter creeptasticness and made Steerpike AWESOME.

From: [personal profile] purplefringe
Thank you very much! omg I love the word 'creeptastic', am definitely adopting that. I thought JRM's acting wasn't really a problem - I had more of an issue with the sets, which, whilst very pretty, didn't look anything like the Gormenghast I had in my head after reading the books!

Oh man, how creepy is this? EXACTLY AS TERRIFYING AS IT SHOULD BE. This brought back all my childhood chills from reading Gormenghast.
