Lyrics

Cthulhu Slumbering in the Depths

Lyrics by Joel Byers & C. Scott Davis and Music by Norman Greenbaum


Before I die with a bullet in my chest
Gotta secret I need to confess
Weigh me down and sink me deep
'Cos Cthulhu is twitching in his sleep
I feel Cthulhu rumbling in his sleep
So weigh me down and sink me deep
Wanna die with a bullet in my chest
So I won't be devoured with the rest

Prepare yourself, but nothing you can do
is gonna save you from Cthulhu
You're gonna suffer as you die
when the Dread Destroyer rises from the depths up to the sky
Cthulhu's gonna rise from the depths up to the sky
Before that happens, I wanna die
Don't wanna wait around to be possessed
So go ahead and put that bullet in my chest

Never been a brave man, never been brave
I've always been a coward
I pray I die while Cthulhu still dreams
So I won't have to listen to the crying and the screams
Kill me now before it all begins
That's the only way I can win
Then weigh me down and sink me deep
'Cos Cthulhu is stirring in his sleep
Lord Cthulhu is waking from his sleep
Cthulhu is rising from the deep
