Songtekst

Bashee playin' magicians sittin' lotus on the floor
Belly dancing beauty with a power driven saw
Had my share of nightmares didn't think there could be much more
Then in walked Rodrick Usher with the Lady Eleanor

She tied my eyes with ribbons of a silken ghosty thread
I gazed with troubled vision on a notebook posted bed (old four poster bed) Where Eleanor had risen to kiss the neck below my head
And bid me come along with her to the land of the dancing dead

But it's alright, Lady Eleanor
Alright, Lady Eleanor
I'm alright where I am

She gazed with her love and beauty like a mother to its son
Like livin', dyin', seein', bein', all roll into one
Then all at once I heard some music in my bone
Same old song I'd heard for years reminding me of home

But it's alright, Lady Eleanor
Alright, Lady Eleanor
I'm alright where I am

Then creeping on towards me, licking lips with tongues of fire
A host of golden demons screaming lust and base desire
And when it seemed for certain that the screams could get no higher
I heard a voice above the rest screaming: "You're a liar"

But it's alright, Lady Eleanor
Alright, Lady Eleanor
I'm alright here in your arms
