sprunka "They Only Come Out at Night" feels like it was written more about me than to or for me. This album is a wonderful blend of goth stylings. Give them a listen and see if you agree. Favorite track: They Only Come Out At Night.

Track Name: The Girl With the Haunted House Tattoo
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.
Track Name: Glow In the Dark
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.
Track Name: To Be Like Lily
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.
Track Name: October Country
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.
Track Name: I Love Him For His Horror Movies
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
Track Name: Where No One Will Find Me
I can tell by all your faces
you all have something to say.
I can tell by the torches you're holding
it's time 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 scars damned me,
to a world where I'm something more.
My footsteps like new music
and new souls love the song.
I'm somewhere you can't imagine.
Track Name: If Only Boris Karloff Was My Dad
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…
Track Name: Sam
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...
Track Name: Those Who Hear It...
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.
Track Name: They Only Come Out At Night
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.
