Cthulhu Christmas Songs (tidings of madness and woe)

Post Neon Knight on Sat 23 Dec - 2:11

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cthulhu_Mythos

An ongoing theme in Lovecraft's work is the complete irrelevance of mankind in the face of the cosmic horrors that apparently exist in the universe. Lovecraft made frequent references to the "Great Old Ones", a loose pantheon of ancient, powerful deities from space who once ruled the Earth and have since fallen into a deathlike sleep. While these monstrous deities have been present in almost all of Lovecraft's published work (his second short story Dagon is considered the start of the mythos), the first story to really expand the pantheon of Great Old Ones and its themes is The Call of Cthulhu, which was published in 1928.

Lovecraft broke with other pulp writers of the time by having his main characters' minds deteriorate when afforded a glimpse of what exists outside their perceived reality. He emphasized the point by stating in the opening sentence of the story that "The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents."

The Carol of the Olde Ones

Look to the sky, way up on high
There in the night, stars are now right

Aeons have passed, now then at last
Prison walls break, Old Ones awake

They will return, mankind will learn
New kinds of fear, when they are here

They will reclaim, all in their name
Hopes turn to black, when they come back

Ignorant fools, mankind now rules
Where they ruled then, it's theirs again

Stars brightly burning, boiling and churning
Bode a returning, season of doom
Scary scary scary Solstice
Very very very scary Solstice

Up from the sea, from underground
Down from the sky, they're all around

They will return, mankind will learn
New kinds of fear, when they are here

Look to the sky, way up on high
There in the night, stars are now right

Aeons have passed, now then at last
Prisons wall break, Old Ones awake

Madness will reign, terror and pain
Woes without end, where they extend

Ignorant fools, mankind now rules
Where they ruled then, it's theirs again

Stars brightly burning, boiling and churning
Bode a returning, season of doom
Scary scary scary Solstice
Very very very scary Solstice

Up from the sea, from underground
Down from the sky, they're all around

Look to the sky, way up on high
There in the night, stars are now right

They will return . . .

Awake Ye Scary Great Old Ones

Awake ye scary Great Olde Ones, let everything dismay
Remember great Cthulhu shall rise up from R'lyeh
To kill us all with tentacles if we should go his way

Oh tidings of madness and woe
Madness and woe
Oh tidings of madness and woe

In Yuggoth and in Aldebaran the Great Olde Ones were spawned
Imprisoned by the Elder Gods to wait for long aeons
Enticing humans to release them, chanting dreadful songs

Oh tidings of madness and woe
Madness and woe
Oh tidings of madness and woe

An Arab said "That is not dead which can eternal lie
And with strange aeons you will find that even death may die."
The Great Olde Ones will rule once more and all will be destroyed!

Oh tidings of madness and woe
Madness and woe
Oh tidings of madness and woe

Death to the World

Death to the world! Cthulhu's come
Let Earth abhor this thing
Let every mind prepare for doom

As anguish and woe he'll bring
As anguish and woe he'll bring
As anguish and woe he'll bring

Up from the sea, R'lyeh did rise
The cultists awestruck dumb
With ancient rites so wretched and perverse

Cthulhu's time is come
Cthulhu's time is come
Cthulhu's time has come

Death to the world! Cthulhu reigns
The Great Old Ones Destroy
With wrath and doom, so cruel and foul

Replete with obscene joy
Replete with obscene joy
Replete with obscene joy

He rules the Earth with dreadful might
And through our ghastly dreams
His twisting turning tentacles
Elicit from us maddened screams

Cthulhu's time is come
Cthulhu's time is come
Cthulhu's time is come

Oh Come All Ye Old Ones

Oh come all ye Old Ones
Ithaqua and Glaaki
Come foul Tsathoggua
And all nameless ones

Come Great Cthulhu
Rising from the ocean

Oh come let us implore them
We really can't ignore them
Oh come let us restore them
Great Old Ones!

Their old dominion
Mankind now rules blithely
Stars turning overhead
To mark out our doom

They will return here
Greedy and malevolent

Oh come let us implore them
We really can't ignore them
Oh come let us restore them
Great Old Ones!

Silent Night, Blasphemous Night

Silent night, blasphemous night
People quake at the sight
Monsters rising from deep R'lyeh
People screaming 'please go away'
Great Cthulhu has come
Great Cthulhu has come

Silent Night, blasphemous night
Great Ones reign
Death in sight
Horrid beasties enslaving mankind
Cosmic terror destroying your mind
We're all going to die
We are all going to die

I see we have a fellow Lovecraftian on our hands! ;-D

'The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far. The sciences, each straining in its own direction, have hitherto harmed us little; but some day the piercing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the light into the peace and safety of a new dark age.

Maybe I will sing this at the Christmas tree. It will be funny (or shocking).
