Fall fires burn ‘neath black twisted boughs
Sacrifice to above
Smoke swirling quickly towards misting clouds
Offering of this blood
Into the flames and without shame
Consumed with howls and screams
Pumpkins grin in their despair
On All Hallows Eve

Cruel be the wind as it quells my words
I shout out to the rain
Incantations I so hope you’ve heard
That you live again
From deep Earth brings forth rebirth
Witness but I shan’t believe
From below, a chilling glow
On All Hallows Eve

Bespiderwebbed and glazed in frost
She wears death beautifully
More stunning now than in her life
On a bed of autumn leaves
Into her eyes and quite surprised
I whispered don’t you leave
Sing macabre songs and we’ll dance ’til dawn
On All Hallows Eve

Saint Lucifer hear me praying to thee
On this eve of all saints
High be the price, but then nothing is free
My soul I’ll gladly trade

Cold is the night in so many ways
Luna round, full and bright
Deep be the mud on the fresh dug graves
On yours I recite
An ancient spell I know so well
Success is guaranteed
I’ll bring you back from where you’ve gone
On All Hallows Eve
