lyrics

He came from Pennsylvania
His identity unknown
A monster made of mud and rock
His heart was made of stone
Every town he came upon
He left it like Pompeii:
Victims truly petrified
They called him John The Clay

Banished from New Jersey
Just before he reached his prime
A warlock from the future
With a taste for twisting time
He vowed to get revenge
And open up Pandora's box
And he came here to do it
Za-Dok: The King Of Clocks

This kinda thing will happen
When two powers go unchecked
The chaos they create can't be ignored
Their destinies, eventually
Will have to intersect
And that's when the order is restored

The people in the settlement
Were clearly unprepared
When Za-Dok teleported in
He had them running scared
His cloak and cowl were tattered
There was anger in his eyes
And he dusted off his shoulder
Just as John The Clay arrived

The mud man took no notice
Of that wizard in the street
He just started up his gimmick
Coating people in concrete
"I swear I'll find a way
To make you die," the warlock screamed
And John The Clay just
Looked him in the eye...and beamed

This kinda thing will happen
When two powers go unchecked
The chaos they create can't be ignored
Their destinies, eventually
Will have to intersect
And that's when the order is restored

Their battle razed the village
With their sorcery and ore
Ohio'd never seen
This kind of ravaging before
But then appeared a stranger
His apparel red and black
He watched them for a moment
Then he readied his attack

The stranger started trembling
So fast his image blurred
He raised his fist and slammed the ground
And never said a word
John The clay was shattered
When the stranger struck the Earth
That King Of Clocks was killed
A thousand years before his birth

They called this man The Quaker
And they owed him all their lives
For evil nearly killed them
But he made it pay the price
To honor him, they named the town
The thing it was the least
They called it Salem
The City...Of Peace

This kinda thing will happen
When two powers go unchecked
The chaos they create can't be ignored
Their destinies, eventually
Will have to intersect
And that's when the order is restored
