Les Catacombes de Paris

Verse:
Straight down
Rockin' down
7 million Parisians
Playing lost and found

And every bone
Stacked up so neat
Black line on the ceiling
Just watch your feet

Long narrow tunnels
Lead to the dead
The life within
Has long since fled

The names of those
Entombed below
So many bodies
Names unknown

CHORUS:
Catacombes de Paris
You know that you want to see
Catacombes de Paris
In death - it's no place to be

VERSE:
25 meters below the streets
You won't see the sun
But the dead still meet

If their stories could be told
A million novels could not hold
Different people right and wrong
Share the tunnel that's so long

Doesn't really matter
Your fortune or fame
In the Catacombes, you're all the same


CHORUS:
Catacombes de Paris
You know that you want to see
Catacombes de Paris
In death - it's no place to be

SOLO

VERSE:
Behind the cross
They use to sleep
Now they rest under Paris streets

An eerie vibe
You can feel
Imagination?
Or is it real?

In the dead of the night
Their bones exhumed
Torn from their home
Way too soon

Living life
in the past
Can't go forward
Can't go back

Chorus:
Catacombes de Paris
You know that you want to see
Catacombes de Paris
In death - it's no place to be

VERSE:
The deads' empire
Under the streets
Safe from the cold
Far from the heat

The darkness below
Has been so kind
The bones within
Have withstood time

Those buried here
The small sign reads
The dead cry out
Leave us be!

And so that you are not misled
The long narrow tunnel
Leads to the dead!

CHORUS:
Catacombes de Paris
You know that you want to see
Catacombes de Paris
In death - it's no place to be
