Apparently it's a chant from worshippers of Cthulhu??

"In his house at R'lyeh, dead Howard waits dreaming" is the literal translation.

Ok thanks for that. I read the odd Lovecraft book but I'm no scholar, or particular fan, of Cthulu. Thought my eyes were going funny...!

I'm quite fond of Lovecraft and a big fan of his Cthulhu mythos

Just bought this baby a month or two back so I'm currently reading up on all those short stories I've missed earlier.
