Lyrics

On Halloween, we ate lots of things.
We ate pumpkin pie and chicken wings.
We also did this other thing
in a circle filled with ochre.
Blood! Blood and pus shall rain
from above now and forever!
Blood! Blood and pus shall rain
now and forever more. Amen.

On Halloween, my dad really does
crazy stuff that we don’t approve of.
That isn’t blood, it’s just chocolate sauce.
And those are Red Hots, not ochre.
Sweets! Sweets and coffee shall reign.
All night and through the darkest day`
Sweets! Sweets and coffee shall reign.
The party will last until day break.

On Halloween, I dream of things
squirming, writhing, bleating, wretched things.
I try to kill them, but it doesn’t work.
I run and I hide, but they find me.
Scream! Scream with all of my might.
I can’t wake from my unholy fright!
Scream! Scream with all of my might.
The things pull me apart as I’m screaming.

On Halloween, your mom’s really mean
telling scary tales from past Hallow’s Eve.
I’d like to think she was just joking
when she told the tale of you choking.
Dead! Dead! You’re a zombie and you must
eat brains on All Hallow’s Eve.
Dead! Dead! And I’ll be next as you must
eat brains on All Hallow’s Eve.

On Halloween, the rite fulfilled and
blood and pus everywhere was dripping.
I tried to die, but it didn’t work.
Go run and go hide, but I’ll find you.
Meat! Sweet and dripping redly
leaving trails for me to follow here.
Meat! Sweet and dripping kindly
your meat shall serve me quite nicely.
