It has been one of my favorites for years, so you probably already know it:

Carol of the Old Ones MP3.
Web page.
Lyrics:

Look to the sky, way up on high
There in the night stars are now right.
Eons have passed: now then at last
Prison walls break, Old Ones awake!
They will return: mankind will learn
New kinds of fear when they are here.
They will reclaim all in their name;
Hopes turn to black when they come back.
Ignorant fools, mankind now rules
Where they ruled then: it's theirs again



Stars brightly burning, boiling and churning
Bode a returning season of doom

Scary scary scary scary solstice
Very very very scary solstice

Up from the sea, from underground
Down from the sky, they're all around
They will return: mankind will learn
New kinds of fear when they are here

Look to the sky, way up on high
There in the night stars are now right.
Eons have passed: now then at last
Prison walls break, Old Ones awake!
Madness will reign, terror and pain
Woes without end where they extend.
Ignorant fools, mankind now rules
Where they ruled then: it's theirs again

Stars brightly burning, boiling and churning
Bode a returning season of doom

Scary scary scary scary solstice
Very very very scary solstice

Up from the sea, from underground
Down from the sky, they're all around.

Fear

(Look to the sky, way up on high
There in the night stars now are right)

They will return.



If you've read the lyrics so far: the music does justice to the words, and then some.

You're aware that the music is an old english folk carol? I've always hated it as a christmas song, because the words don't do anything in particular for the music. This is much better.

I didn't know that! Thanks for the tip. Do you remember the carol's name?

Yep! It's called "Carol of the Bells" and until you have heard it done on a poorly tuned hand-bell chorus, you have not known true suffering.

*checks the lyrics* Eeek. I think it scares me more than the Lovecraftian version.
