Lady Lucifer 05:17
You first came to me in a dream At once I knew you were my queen You smiled with lips incarnadine Whispered black magic rites obscene I knew just who you were Lady Lucifer Evil walks here on earth Lady Lucifer In the black night you called my name Your nails caressed my windowpane Thunder cracked, then came the rain Woke up bleeding from an open vein I knew just who you were Lady Lucifer Evil walks here on earth Lady Lucifer Lucifer! No! Ooh, I can’t run, I can’t hide Cause she’s inside my mind Ooh, I can’t run, I can’t hide I feel her by my side Ooh, I can’t run, I can’t hide She’s got me hypnotised Ooh, I can’t run, I can’t hide In love with Satan’s bride I knew just who you were Lady Lucifer Evil walks here on earth Lady Lucifer Ooh, I can’t cry, I can’t yell Ring out the funeral bell Ooh, I can’t cry, I can’t yell I'm stuck under her spell Ooh, I can’t cry, I can’t yell It’s time to say farewell Ooh, I can’t cry, I can’t yell She’ll send me straight to hell
2.
They say she rode with the Devil They say she bears his mark They say she danced in the forest With a goat long after dark Ah, they know not what they do If they burn her they are doomed Cause she’ll curse them She’ll hex them And there’s no way to protect them Ah, they’ve got to free the witch She’ll curse them She’ll plague them And there’s no way to save them Ah, they’ve got to free the witch Free the witch They say she ruined the harvest They say she spoiled the crops They say she’s part of a coven Meeting in the blasted copse Ah, they know not what they do If they burn her they are doomed Cause she’ll curse them She’ll hex them And there’s no way to protect them Ah, they’ve got to free the witch She’ll curse them She’ll plague them And there’s no way to save them Ah, they’ve got to free the witch Free the witch Malleus Maleficarum
3.
Born before time Last of my kind On this doomed earth I was left behind In the abyss Never surface Unless summoned by the slowest riffs Living fossil I’m built to last Living fossil I'm a blast from the past Centuries pass Without a glance I transcend time in my narcotic trance I dwell alone Aphotic zone Awakened only by the lowest tone Living fossil I’m built to last Living fossil I'm a blast from the past I have watched the ages come and go Never dying, living slow Nothing I can do to stem time’s flow Never dying, living slow Living fossil Don’t move too fast Living fossil I'm a blast from the past Living fossil In a void so vast Living fossil I'm a blast from the past Prehistoric pariah I just get higher and higher Live slow Never die I’ll spend an eternity getting high
4.
I’ve heard them say This land is cursed It’s in the water It’s in the earth I’ve heard them say It haunts this place Though it has no name Though it has no face So they say, so they say By the watermill There it lurks, there it lays Older than the hills So they say, so they say When you feel the chill Run away, run away It’s older than the hills I’ve heard them say It’s in the trees You can hear it moan It’s on the breeze I’ve heard them say Just let it in Into your bones Under your skin So they say, so they say By the watermill There it lurks, there it lays Older than the hills So they say, so they say It cannot be killed Run away, run away It’s older than the hills You try to escape Ah, you never will It is here to stay Older than the hills It’s been here always And it lives here still Ah, it has no name Older than the hills Older than the hills
5.
Misty morning dawning On the scaffold high Crows are cawing, swarming Falling from the sky Final warning Now the end is nigh Judgement calling: Any words before you die? This is your last day You cannot be saved Headed for the grave What you going to say? You get down on your knees You pray to God for mercy Ah, but he can’t help you now When the axe comes down Crowd is roaring, brawling Crying out for blood They want it pouring, coursing In a crimson flood You are crawling Rolling in the mud They are watching Waiting for the thud Your face in the dirt You cannot be heard Your mouth full of earth What are your last words? You look up to the sky You pray to God before you die Ah, but he can’t help you now When the axe comes down Now you’ve said your final prayer You walk slowly up the stairs Now you step onto the stage You’d better get ready for the blade! You get down on your knees You pray to God for mercy Ah, but he can’t help you now When the axe comes down When the… axe When the axe comes down

A DOOM CHARTS Top 10 Record

doomcharts.com/2018/03/07/doom-charts-february-2018/

'FREE THE WITCH sets a ridiculous standard ... In a genre packed with bands that draw on decades-old tone and aesthetic, it takes a mature hand to re-appropriate bygone creativity without sounding forced. Luckily there is a confidence and craft present in Green Lung’s writing that belies their months. If Green Lung can expand the template that has served them so well across these four superb songs then a truly exciting future awaits' The Sludgelord

thesludgelord.blogspot.com/2018/02/review-green-lung-free-witch-ep.html

'I wouldn’t bet that Green Lung are finished growing into themselves, but the work they’ve undertaken in beginning their progression is appreciable both in its effort and outcome. Their debut EP, in other words, kicks a good bit of ass ... FREE THE WITCH helps establish their presence in London’s crowded scene and in the greater heavy underground. A success on every level' The Obelisk

theobelisk.net/obelisk/2018/02/12/green-lung-free-the-witch-ep/

'The really spectacular thing about Green Lung is how joyous their riffs are; there are few bands in the scene writing such active, dazzling guitar parts. Of the band’s two releases to date, FREE THE WITCH displays much tighter songwriting and a more consistent musical aesthetic, but it’s also goddamn fun. A strong offering from a great scene, and with a notable advancement from their previous effort, this is a good indicator of exciting things still to come' The Monolith

'Green Lung know how to get the party started in just the right way, with super catchy riffs and super catchy choruses ... I honestly couldn’t find anything wrong with this' Mammoth Tongue Reviews

mammothtongue.wordpress.com/2018/02/19/green-lung-free-the-witch-ep-review/

'FREE THE WITCH sees Green Lung considerably upping their game and adding to their armoury a deeper, fuller dynamic. If the bands demo "Green Man Rising" whetted your appetite for their brand of classy, fuzz drenched intelligent occult rock then FREE THE WITCH is gonna blow your taste buds to smithereens' Desert Psychlist

stonerking1.blogspot.co.uk/2018/02/green-lung-free-witch-ep-review.html

'Green Lung have created an EP worthy of massive accolades. They transmit smouldering guitar pyrotechnics and hypnotic rhythmic paths, all of which is topped off with unique, powerful vocals. Each song is a stellar, standalone composition' Riff Relevant

www.riffrelevant.com/2018/02/23/green-lung-free-the-witch-review-official-video/

'Got to be the greatest surprise of 2018 so far ... Green Lung have smashed it out of the park with FREE THE WITCH' Hour of the Riff

www.mixcloud.com/HOTR/hour-of-the-riff-episode-58/

'A steady cacophony of doom filled music which doesn’t let up over the course of twenty five minutes ... The UK doom scene seems to be solidifying itself again after a few years where it kind of lost its way. A new pack of bands are leading the charge and we can definitely add Green Lung to the ones to watch list. There is enough here to keep the hardened doom listener excited, and the re-listen value is high. A worthy addition to any doom collection' Echoes and Dust
