Welcome my children come in, take a seat, And never you mind all those snakes at your feet, Or the cobwebs that cling to the ceiling and walls, Or the bats in the eaves, or the rats in the hall. I’ve gathered you ‘cause I’ve a few tales to tell, But do not expect they should end very well. I hope you don’t mind if I turn out this light, For the stories I know are much better at night. Please don’t be spooked, you’ve nothing to fear, These are but verses, just words, my dear. But if my tales are all fiction and none of it true, Then what is that thing standing right…behind…you?

It’s Halloween, where is everyone? We should be partying and having fun Not this year, no Monster Mash but everyone loves it, It’s a graveyard smash Halloween’s the one night a year The three of us can go out without any fear Where will we go? Out in the streets? Yes! This is the year we monsters Trick or Treat Trick or Treat, The monsters trick or treat Give us something sweet, The monster’s trick or treat “Trick or Treat?” We’re still too scary, we should go home I hear the Wolf-Man’s in the graveyard, digging up bones Nonesense! We just need to try another door Like this one? I bet they have candy galore Chorus Hey look! There’s the Creature, the Mummy and the Hag They’ve all got candy stuffed in their bags How did you do it? What was your trick? I cast a spell upon them them to make them think we're just kids

Lightning snaps the hangman's sleep Been disassembled piece-by-piece And stitched into a monster of a man Now I can't tell what parts are mine And this world is so unkind I never asked to live this life again Hate living, love dead I paid the price for the life I led Hate living, love dead Black madness in my head Hate living, love dead Haunted by the blood I've shed Hate living, love dead, yeah Floating flowers, sinking curls I'm really sorry about that girl It's not my fault, I've got a rotten mind Torches crackle through the night Pitchforks pierce and hellhounds bite Jokes on them I don't think that I can die Hate living, love dead I paid the price for the life I led Hate living, love dead Rejected by my newlywed Hate living, love dead Haunted by the blood I've shed Hate living, love dead, yeah Hate living, love dead I paid the price for the life I led Hate living, love dead Black madness in my head Hate living, love dead Haunted by the blood I've shed Hate living, love dead, yeah Hate living, love dead I paid the price for the life I led Hate living, love dead Rejected by my newlywed Hate living, love dead Haunted by the blood I've shed Hate living, love dead, yeah

Late, late at night, she creeps in bed And says give me love, give me blood, give me head I quiver and I quake down in my bones I got no will left, she’s in control They say she’s gonna be the death of me But being dead is all I ever wanted to be She’s the hottest damn thing you ever did see She’s my sweet, evil dream, my Halloween Queen She cuts and she kisses and she claws and she bites And she makes me bow down on Halloween night She gets her powers when the cold winds blow And the black cats cry and the old gods moan Wrapped up tight in her cold, black wings I run when she calls and cum when she sings She’s the hottest damn thing you ever did see She’s my sweet, evil dream, my Halloween Queen My Halloween Queen, she’s my everything With lips that burn and eyes that sting When the dead start dancing and the demons sing She’s the Queen of Halloween Summer’s long gone, winter’s a dream In your arms every night is Halloween Soaring on the edge of endless night When the full moon glows and the owls take flight Bonfires burning while the bodies swing Take my soul away from these living things She’s the hottest damn thing you ever seen She’s my sweet, evil dream, my Halloween Queen

We were just kids, having fun Smoking grass in the summer sun Maybe having a beer or two A skinny dip, a daylight screw Looking forward to sunny days Dancing and singing our cares away None of us would ever dream that we would die this way Then Little Peetie Jergins set upon us Claiming bloody vengeance with his blade We never stood a chance against his undead rage The night of the Terror at Blood Lake A summer camp once graced this shore But it was closed forevermore When Peetie Jergins burned alive While the counselors tried to score Now his undead spirit walks Through these woods and down the docks Hacking nubile bodies into bloody chunks of gore Maryanne was gutted with a hunting knife And Billy took a hatchet to the face And Robin’s broken body was wrapped around an old oak tree The night of the Terror at Blood Lake Somehow, I survived that night I wouldn’t go without a fight I pulled the pitchfork from Sally’s breast And ran it clean through Peetie’s chest Doused his body with kerosene Lit a match, you should have seen The way that Peetie kicked and screamed as the shed went up in flames Now a little bit of Peetie lives inside me There’s a shadow on my soul I just can’t shake When the darkness overcomes me, I slip on Peetie’s mask And become, the terror at blood lake Yeah, I’m the terror at Blood Lake

With bulbous red noses and oversized shoes, The Clowns are coming, (group chant) The Clowns are coming.(group chant) Wild-eyed grins and giant hands too, The Clowns are coming, The Clowns are coming. Calliope music that thunders and shrieks The Clowns are coming, The Clowns are coming. Under that make-up they’re hideous freaks The Clowns are coming, The Clowns are coming. With maniacal laughter and hair so bizarre, Far too many of them are in that small car, Don’t bother hiding, they know where you are. The Clowns are coming, The Clowns are coming.

What’s the matter boy, are you afraid? Go ahead and try to run away ‘cause you look like a tasty treat And let me tell ya… I can EAT Trust me when I say I bite Cause the full moon is coming out tonight And I’M THE WOLF! Yeah baby I’M THE WOLF! Aaaaah-oooooooooooh! There’s a beast behind these eyes And a hunger that’s never satisfied I know the evil you can do And I’ve broken bigger men than you Flashing fangs in a bloody grin “All the better to eat you with” Cause I’M THE WOLF! Yeah, baby I’M THE WOLF! Aaaaah-oooooooooh! I’m the wolf, hear me howl Feel my claws and fear my growl I’m the wolf, look at me Cause I’m the last thing that you’re ever gonna see Even a girl who’s pure at heart And says her prayers by night Can become a wolf when the wolfbane blooms And the autumn moon is bright Burning lust, undying thirst A slave to the night, in love with the curse Cause I’M THE WOLF! Yeah, baby I’M THE WOLF Hooo-yeah I’M THE WOLF! Run, run, run from THE WOLF! Aaaaah-ooooooooh!

In the house, in the house, in the old dark house It's where they left me Alone but never lonely (the spirits!) In the house, in the house, in the old dark house Eyes were always on me Whispers of the dead, telling me I'm home And it's so very cold in here Cold as the tomb in here End everyone's dead in here And the old dark house won't let me go In the house, in the house, in the old dark house My spirit is damned to wander In the house, in the house, in the old dark house Is where I surrendered to it all...and tumbled in the dark And it's so very cold in here Cold as the tomb in here End everything's dead in here And the old dark house won't let me go (I'll never leave this place)

It came from outer space I saw it glowing red I poked it with a stick Now its in my head It came from outer space, Thought it was a dream It took my father's place Now it's gotta feed I'm tellin' you man that this thing's so terrible to look upon that a single glance can drive you mad with terror So if you hear it coming run, run, run, run! It came from outer space Free from its icy tomb Now there's nowhere to hide From its cosmic doom

You can poison mother’s brain, and make the writer go insane And dance across the astral plane, when you’re one of the dead You can float across the room, forever shroud the house in gloom Or warn them of impending doom, when you’re one of the dead If a family buys a house constructed on a graveyard You can suck their daughter through the television You can make your legend grow, through a haunted video Or become a murderous crow, when you’re one of the dead You can rise up from the grave and stab your mother with a spade And feast upon her guts and brains, when you’re one of the dead You can crash a London pub, and learn a thing or two from Bub And sometimes maybe even run, when you’re one of the dead When we rise together they will call it Armageddon And our numbers grow with everyone we slaughter You can punish everyone for everything they’ve ever done Or even be a spooky nun, when you’re one of the dead You can put ‘em in a trance and make the dinner party dance Or have a very goth romance, when you’re one of the dead You can travel in a hearse, or be a pharoh’s undead curse Or chop the head clean off a nurse, when you’re one of the dead No matter how you run and hide, we will come to get you You can never win so why not just surrender? Fall into our dark embrace, and give up on this human race Look into our Grim Grinning Face! Now you’re one of the dead, Now you’re’ one of the dead Now you’re one of the dead!

Anticipation gets the best of me Waiting for the terror to leap off the screen Here at the drive-in on a hot summer night None of us will ever see the morning light We'll all be cut down in the prime of life There's no forgiveness 'cause the devil's at the drive-in tonight We'll never get out alive The devil's at the drive-in tonight We'll never get out alive Blood on the dashboard, blood on the seats I feel the lifeblood draining out of me Dark incantations opened up that seal Now demon armies fight us in the final reel What kind of evil lives behind those eyes Hell's come to meet us cause the devil's at the drive-in tonight We'll never get out alive The devil's at the drive-in tonight We'll never get out alive We'll lose our souls here in the golden light Of hellfire on the scree cause the devil's at the drive in tonight

I’m gonna have a nightmare, tortured sleep will come tonight, I’m gonna have a nightmare; I’ve surrendered to my plight. Visions dark and frightening will thunder through my dreams, I’ll see ghosts and demons and skeletons that scream. I stayed up late and watched the awesome creature double feature, The one about the kids who were all eaten by their teacher. And since I couldn’t sleep I grabbed an ancient book of verse, And read of Elf-Kings, Ravens, Goblins, Trolls and much, much worse. I’m gonna have a nightmare that chills me to my bones, Of a tempest-torn sea-crossing and a date with Davey Jones. I’ll dream of some dumb brute that looms behind me with an axe, And a madman who entombs his prey in a shell of molten wax. I’ll conjure up much darker things than you have ever known, Like bugs that burrow under flesh and feast on living bone. I’m gonna have a nightmare, and it’s gonna be a doozy, A fantasy of all things creepy, crawly, pussy, oozy. Monsters of all kinds chase me up stairways made of mud, While vampires do backstrokes in swimming pools of blood. And madness, oh sweet madness is the only happy ending, As the fire licks my body whilst all my flesh is rending. I’m gonna have a nightmare, this I know is true, I’m gonna have a nightmare… At least, I hope I do.

You and I were born to burn Fire like blood in our veins Now we're at the point of no return Let's torch it all in his name Come take my hand, follow me I'll show you things you've never seen The city's on fire and we're to blame Come kiss me now in the flames Candy-corn colors in the sky It's almost Halloween And I know with evil on our side We can do anything Come take my hand, follow me I'll show you things you've never seen The world's on fire and we're to blame Come kiss me now in the flames
16.
We're not who you think we are No fallen angels of the morning star Conjuring unholy power, Spilling blood in the devil's houe You'll never live to know how wrong you are We summon the darkness, profaning holy ground We summon the darkness, heavy metal, devil-sound We summon the darkness, in thrall with Satan's spell We're gonna be the ones who drag your body straight to hell The immoral majority Can only see what they believe Satanic panic in the streets, your religion is obsolete No gods, no kings, no bended knee We summon the darkness, profaning holy ground We summon the darkness, heavy metal, Devil-sound We summon the darkness, in thrall with Satan's spell We're gonna be the ones who drag your body straight to hell We summon the darkness (4xs) We summon the darkness, profaning holy ground We summon the darkness, heavy metal, devil-sound We summon the darkness, in thrall with Satan's spell We're gonna be the ones who drag your body straight to hell

When I'm dead and gone I'll haunt you from beyond And if you find someone I'll make sure he runs Wooooo Don't forget my ghost, I ain't moving on I'll be with you forever and ever Don't forget my ghosts when I'm dead and gone I'll be with you forever Is this how it goes? I've never died before So why'd you pull that gun? I thought you were the one Wooohooohooo Don't forget my ghost, I ain't moving on I'll be with you forever and ever Don't forget my ghosts when I'm dead and gone I'll be with you forever Don't forget my ghost, I'm not moving on I'll be with you forever and ever Don't forget my ghosts now I'm dead and gone I'll be with you forever When I'm dead and gone I'll haunt you from beyond
