Do you find yourself in darkness Do you find yourself in light? That's a question I want answered Could you answer me tonight? Could you give me some directions In this cave of afterlife? Do I struggle with my conscience As it struggles with my life? In this blackness that surrounds me But doesn't give me any room There's so much that I forget... Is that the curse of the mummy's tomb?
We're all the bold explorer We all seek gold and fame Out asking for directions To the house that knows no pain And the casual traveler wonders Who led us all astray As he leans against the bar And watches children play In the blackness that surrounds them Where there's never any room But he's following his own quest For the curse of the mummy's tomb
There are riches here you cannot sell So value them we don't There are spies at every corner Please help us they say "won't" There are special traps of wisdom Devised to seize the fool To entomb him with the mummy's gold There are demons who shout "duel!" But I'm too busy with my conscience I'm too busy with my gloom Can you rid me of the fever? That's the curse of the mummy's tomb
We started out together Our expeditions linked But every student has a theory The best he's ever thinked And our vanity betrays us And our nerve it disappears After crossing the dark threshold Into loneliness and tears Could I travel into caves unknown Hear the dullest thud of doom Can I wander noisy silence? That's the curse of the mummy's tomb
Buried deep within the mountain In the Valley of the King There's a passageway that leads there Where the wind whistles and sings Of a time so long forgotten But it seems like yesterday When the queen was in her palace And the king was on his way To the bosom of his family To the holy golden womb What was that love? That's the curse of the mummy's tomb
If you want to know what happened here There is writing on the wall There are strange signs and ornaments That'll really tell you all But they're easy to misunderstand You have to tell the truth That's how you find the secret Of her eternal youth There are curses that are blessings There are clues in every room It's up to you now That's the curse of the mummy's tomb
Nobody there to help you As the apparition nears Nobody loves like she did Could take away your fears Was this what you were afraid of? Life without the queen? Forget it, just remember This life is but a dream And you know that hope's returning Like a new bride to the groom
