Question about Abigail

What does this line mean:

"If you refuse Eighteen will become Nine

Eighteen is Nine"

I tried to search for it both on this forum and on google and on wikipedia (which is actually a good music reference), but to no avail.

All I can figure out is that Miriam (a character from the album's story) is listed as 18 years old at the story, but I am not sure where the nine falls in.

Anyone know, everyone I have asked has had no clue. If I need to hop a flight to Danish-land, so be it. I will find out what it means or kill my entire family (by pushing them down the stairs so they easily break their necks).

It probably means there were 18 people and if they refused 18 would go down to 9. Then they refused so 18 went down to 9.

Though this is really hard to put into context without some sort of insight as to what the band, song, or rest of the lyrics put it in.

That's a dumb question, you know everyone in here would buy it too. I know I would!

The basic story is this: Jonathan LaFey and his wife Miriam move to a mansion Jonathan inherited. When they get there, Seven "Black Horsemen" are there to tell them to not move into the house because if they do "18 will become 9".

Jonathan later learns that his ancestor who lived in the house, Count de LaFey, learned his pregnant wife's baby was not his and pushed her down the stairs of the home, forcing her baby to be born dead. The baby was named abigail and the counts horsemen (the black horsemen) take the baby and bury it.

Then the spirit of abigail possesses Miriam, making her become pregnant with Abigail. The fetus develops quickly and eventually takes total control of Miriam. She then pushes Jonathan down the stairs killing him. Miriam then dies while giving Birth to Abigail.

At this point, the Black Horsemen arrive and take the re-born baby Abigail and take her to a church to kill her. Presumably by nailing 7 silver spikes through her hands, arms, knees and mouth like they first did when she died, but this is not told.

Anyway, that is the story.

It was only 2 people who didn't know, maybe 2 people don't listen to King Diamond.

NosferatuZodd's post seems pretty likely.

Abigail is a classic, and should been listened to by any metalhead no matter if you like it or not. That is like saying you've never heard a Slayer song...
