(sung to the tune of Heart's "Magic Man")


H.P. Filkcraft

A cold late night, so long ago
When I was just a novice, you know
Me and my coven
We were Cthulhu-lovin'

We sang the chants unto the moon
To release the Old Ones for Man's doom
Black Man came to me
He looked right through me, yeah


'Bring them on through, child,' he said with a sneer
'The stars will soon be right now, and we'll reign in blood and fear
Try the Invocation
Try the Invocation
Try, try, try the Invocation'
Said the Faceless One
Ooh, he's got the tendril-tongue

The chants were strong, they came on through
Yog-Sothoth and Shub-Niggurath too
We fell down at their feet,
And reveled in the streets

But all too soon it had to end
The foolish humans had a friend
We didn't know Nodens
Would be so potent, yeah


'Give up on the Old Gods,' he said with a grin
'I am of the Elder Gods, and They can never win
Turn your back and shun
Turn your back and shun
Turn your back upon, and shun
The Faceless One
Ooh, they never could have won'
