Up a road of graves and stones Under bats and moon a house alone Empty they say, but there are those who know… The girl that calls that house her home. Beware all you trick or treaters All who dare per chance to see her Black cats watching Statues warning Forget all you ever knew... And be true to the girl with the haunted house tattoo. Her home lies between ink and sky. Ghost filled and sunless days and nights. By each window floats candle light. All is spooky, all is right. Beware all you trick or treaters All who dare per chance to see her Black cats watching Statues warning Forget all you ever knew... And be true to the girl with the haunted house tattoo. Go with her, go and see Step by step by her lead Past the ravens that mind the tree... from above the pet cemetery. Creep by creep so quietly... by the coffin of the man who reads... a book of days that used to be held forever in memory... On skin in ink for those who dare to go pass the gate and up the path, at the door she waits for you, the girl with the haunted house tattoo. Beware all you trick or treaters All who dare per chance to see her Black cats watching Statues warning Forget all you ever knew... And be true to the girl with the haunted house tattoo.

Glow In the Dark Suns going down like a coin in a juke box. Our lids bust open because they're playing our noise. Smells like smoke and sounds like rain it's the first note in an 8 hour song. Gonna let it finish Gonna let it start Gonna let these city streets tear us apart, to and fro its our unknown... Watch us go go go Watch us glow in dark Tunnels breathe deep exhaling our souls. We seek highs, we seek lows. All together or all alone, hand in hand we sing along... Gonna let it finish Gonna let it start Gonna let these city streets tear us apart, to and fro its our unknown... Watch us go go go Watch us glow in dark Feel the city move beneath our feet.  Behind every door new friends, new fiends. A dirge on the dance floor whispered in our ears. Children of the city you're welcome here.

When I was a young girl Perhaps just thirteen I swore one day I'd be like the monster on my tv screen. She was pale with black hair Save a perfect silver streak. Her gown was long and ghostly and her sleeves spread out just like bat wings. Oh how I wanted to be like her The perfect lady, wife and mother Oh I hope to one day be just like her Mrs. Lilly Munster. She lives in a big old mansion With a dungeon and a lab Cobwebs hanging everywhere A dragon beneath the stairs Dinner with her family Spider eye soufflé Smooches from her Herman And hugs from Eddie Grandpa's says he's thirsty she tells him, "not from me!" Go and ask if Marilyn can spare a pint for u to drink. Oh how I wanted to be like her The perfect lady, wife and mother Oh I hope to one day be just like her... Oh how I wanted to be like her The perfect lady, wife and mother Oh I hope to one day be just like her Mrs. Lilly Munster.

We are autumn people With our autumn ways Living in our autumn place Where colors turn but never change. Our hills are fog  And our rivers mist We are made in the main of cellars Where sunlight goes unmissed We are autumn pleasures We are autumn tastes We are minds of autumn thoughts Amidst a sky of hues and shades Our noons go quickly And our midnights stay By the warm and orange glow We all find our way home We have no secrets just traditions a celebration of all that's hidden. Many have come to look But few have ever seen The unknown beauty of October country. On the edge of the autumn wind Fallen leaves and cinnamon Rusted flakes of gold and red Before us lay without end And though, we may wander We are truly never far From this October country We are here and here we are. In the ground, sky, and in the trees in the hearts of we who believe. The past lives on in a whispered song can you hear them sing? And in this country with it's ageless ends and orange sky pouring down into corners dark and many, in this season that remains still and unchanged. And these shadows that move in its grace, are we it's people, Autumn people, who know it only as home.

All the girls say he has it all He looks like Waits and has a heart of gold For other girls that might be just fine... I don't like'em for his looks his tattoos or his poetry books None of that keeps me up all night like... His horror movies I love him for his horror movies Put another one on and be scared with me Him and me against the blood soaked screen He's got movies that I've never seen I tell ya that boy knows how to make me scream! Other girls may like sweet talk Flowers and treats and romantic walks But none of that keeps me up all night like... His horror movies I love him for his horror movies Put another one on and be scared with me You can keep your boys with all there toys And all those guys with there games and lies cause none of that keeps me up all night His horror movies I love him for his horror movies Put another one on and be scared with me

I can tell by the looks on all your faces you all have something you wanna say. I can tell by the torches and the pitchforks you're holding it's time for me to be on my way. I'm going somewhere you can't imagine. Somewhere a little less bloody and tragic. Somewhere where you'll never find me. Somewhere where no one will find me. Somewhere where no one will mind me. Somewhere, everywhere, nowhere no one bother to look for me. Anywhere. From a land where my scars have damned me, to a world where they make me something more. My footsteps ring out like new music and all new souls love the song. I'm going somewhere you can't imagine. Somewhere a little less bloody and tragic. Somewhere where you'll never find me. Somewhere where no one will find me. Somewhere where no one will mind me. Somewhere, everywhere, nowhere no one bother to look for me. Anywhere. Anywhere but here...

Oh the fun we would have scaring the hell outta all my friends, If only Boris Karloff was my dad... We'd go see horror flicks He'd say these movies today are too darn sick Back in his day all he had to do was look...at you And I would be the be the best son a dad could have And I would be the happiest boy you ever met If only Boris Karloff was my dad If Boris Karloff was my dad We'd sip tea and act out scenes From Edgar Allan Poetry If only Boris Karloff was my dad And at night he’d tuck me in And tell me stories bout all his friends Like Bela, Peter, Lon and Mr.Price And I would be the be best daughter a dad could have And I would be the happiest girl u ever met If Boris Karloff was my dad If only Boris Karloff was my dad I love you dad! And we would be the best kids a dad could have And we would be the happiest kids you ever met If only Boris Karloff was our dad…

There behind the tree Behind that stitch work smile Behind those button eyes Is a mindful little child He watches over us Every word and every deed Haunt with respect For tonight is halloween Don't go outside Just for tonight The date belongs to him Stay at home Keep your pumpkins Burning bright Or you will find out why.... Out in the moon lit mist A howl and dead leaves skip Nothing more? Maybe laughing? Past years ghosts can't resist Out of sight but never far He smiles watching on Every haunter must pay heed For tonight is halloween There's knocks at every door Masks and hands asking for sweets and treats and nothing more! Pay the tribute or the score...

As your day fades you hear it. It starts as soft as wind. A warning to those who fear it... To run...to hide... A beat grows in the distance A voice grows by its side A call to those who hear it To rise and march into the night Rise up and be counted all my dark and weary friends join with us and sing for the night is ours again! Ohh the night is ours again. You know us by the chill we set upon your bones A feeling in the darkness that you will never ever be alone. As every night before and every night to come we will wake up around you and live till the night is done! Rise up and be counted all my dark and weary friends join with us and sing for the night is ours again! We are waking We are rising We are coming Can't u feel it We have always been here... Forever...and we always will Rise up and be counted all my dark and weary friends join with us and sing for the night is ours again! Ohh the night is ours again.

When something seems wrong Yes it seems not quite right When something unheard of goes bump in the night. When gut wrenching terror is taken to hair raising new heights, remember they only come out at night. When meat hungry monsters come for a bite. When creatures go hunting on their nocturnal flights. When goblins come calling and oh they just might remember they only come out at night. When something is watching just out of sight. Watching and laughing with creepy delight. When witches fly past the moon so bright remember they only come out at night. Off in the corner, coming up the stairs Right by the bed something is there… A shadow at the window, scratching in the walls… Something in your ear whispers, “Hello!” When lying in bed quivering with fright. When you're too scared to even turn on the light, pull up your covers and shut your eyes tight and remember they only come out at night.
