yeah get well soon Mr. Diamond. i think in times like these we all remember these lyrics from Mercyful Fate's immortal ballad "M.D.A.":

Satan's veil, the night so red
Another creature sighted
The night's alright, The music's loud
The feeling is so right

Mission: Destroy Aliens
Mission: Destroy Aliens
Mission: Destroy Aliens
Mission: Destroy

Someone wishes, dare to learn
And understand the chance
About his lair, the king has spoke
To be in there with him

Mission: Destroy Aliens
Mission: Destroy Aliens
Mission: Destroy Aliens
Mission: Destroy

Later on, the cauldron's burning
Take away their breath
You can't resist my evil touch
Nature fights their bearing

Mission: Destroy Aliens
Mission: Destroy Aliens
Mission: Destroy Aliens
Mission: Destroy
