ALL HALLOWS EVE

ALL HALLOWS EVE



As nights dark veil draws across the land
Your life’s timer runs out of rushing sand
All that crawl, or creep, or fly
Are aiming for your soul, as night goes bye

Night’s dark creatures that feast on fear
Preying on terror and a child's tear
Arise the dead and all celebrate
Devour the living till your hunger does abate

Flaccid, festering, flesh hangs incomplete
As decayed, animated corpses shuffle on rotting feet
Their foul putrid stench fills your lungs full
Tonight is the night for the dead to rule

As they seek to find you their prey
Will you make it to another day?
Hide with your covers tight over your head
If you think that will stop the advance of the dead

If they don’t succeed in feasting on your soul
Other night’s creatures might eat you whole
As hell erupts for this night alone
Are you safe hiding in your home?

“Come forth terror
Come forth fear
Come forth anarchy
Its that time of year

Bring death
Bring fetid breath
Bring pestilence and poison
Bring unrest”

Vampires, ghosts, ghouls, complete
Werewolf’s, zombies, hells hounds to meet
Witches warlocks secure to walk the land
Marching with the will of the devils hand

All screaming and searching for your soul alone
Do you really think they wont visit your home?
They hunger for your company
To tear you between them to have you for tea
