Egypt (the Chains Are On) – Dio
From The Last in Line – 1984
Lyrics – Ronnie James Dio

In the land of the lost horizon Where the queen lies dark and cold When the stars won’t shine, then the story’s told When the world was milk and honey And the magic was strong and true Then the strange ones came and the people knew That the chains are on

In the land of no tomorrow Where you pray just to end each day And your life just slowly melts away Each day you hear the sand as it moves and whispers Come and sail on my golden sea Maybe one day you’ll be just like me…and that’s free But still your chains are on

You’ve seen them walking on the water You’ve seen flying through the sky They were frightening in the darkness They had rainbows in their eyes When the world was milk and honey And the magic was strong and true Then the strange ones came and the people knew That the chains are on

Egypt – Mercyful Fate
From In the Shadows – 1993
Lyrics – King Diamond

Ahh…Egypt…Ahh O Thou of countless names Who are one and all things O Thou of countless names Without beginning, without end Ahh…Egypt…Ahh Osiris…Anubis…The underworld is yours Osiris…Anubis…I put my soul in your hands O Thou, God of the Dead Lead my soul to the judgement hall O Thou, Jackal Head Weigh my soul, I await your call Ahh…Egypt…Ahh Ammit, Eater of the Dead Is devouring my heart Will I pass on to Aaru Or will I be condemned?

I’m burning inside to know I’m burning inside to know I’m burning inside to know

I  must be back on time But still I want to know I hope they let me go I’m from another time And I must reunite My body and my soul

I’m burning inside to know I’m burning inside to know I’m burning inside to know

Osiris…Anubis…The underworld is yours Osiris…Anubis…I put my soul in your hands O Thou of countless names Who are one and all things O Thou of countless names Without beginning, without end Ahh…Egypt…Ahh Egypt come back to me Egypt come back to me Egypt, without beginning or end.
