Come into my sanctuary

For the lost and the damned.

I’ll sing you a song

As you travel ‘cross land

And sea.


Come into my sanctuary;

Won’t you please come to it?

There’s nothing to fear,

Oh come and stay a bit.

You’ll see


This place is a place

Where you won’t have to face

Your troubles or fears

There’s no worries, no tears.


This place is a place

That’s devoid of disgrace,

Not one thing that’s bad

Nothing will make you mad.


My arms are open to all,

You see.

There is no more time to stall,

So please.


Come in, come in

One and all.

And watch your step -

For you may fall


Down below to that place called madness.

Down below where paradise fades to ashes
