Track Name: A Stormtrooper For Halloween
I had an old white shirt and a store-bought mask
And a broken water gun within my grasp
My tattered pants were lined with electrical tape.
It was the greatest costume that was ever made

And I wish I could relive that holiday

When I dressed up like a Stormtrooper for Halloween
My dad was a ghost, my friend was Wolverine
And these memories will surely haunt my dreams tonight.

I marched down Fleetwood street in my black rubber boots
We went from door to door collecting our loot
I wouldn’t eat the candy in my pillow case
Because I refused to take the mask off my face

Now, I’m putting on my mask again
and lacing up my boots
With my son dressed up like Anakin
in his jedi costume
Track Name: Undead Love Song
A supernatural wedding day
A blushing bride, a groom in a cage.
She could have had any man she desired
Like a teen werewolf or an old vampire

But she loves her Zombie Man

This is an Undead Love Song
Everyone will think it's wrong
They just don't understand those Zombie moans
Lovers need not be alive for true love to survive
A fragile heart need not rot alone

When they went on their honeymoon
They drank champagne in their hotel room
But then the bride went into shock
When his foot fell off and he lost his c***

But she loves her Zombie Man

This is an Undead Love Song
Everyone will think it's wrong
They just don't understand those Zombie moans
Lovers need not be alive for true love to survive
A fragile heart need not rot alone

But it ain't easy being married to an undead lover
the bride is always under attack
People ask her: Why can't she find another
And why is she a Necrophiliac?
Track Name: Angels & Vampires
She scribbles his order down
to the beat of espresso machines
Adjusts her peroxide crown
Retracts her diaphanous wings

She's obsessive and manic depressive
Carmilla hates what she's become

Gabe looks in her stained-glass eyes
and sings his celestial refrain
Peeks through his own disguise
and gives her a chance to explain

Her defection and lack of reflection
Gabriel waits through the night

And he said that Angels and Vampires hide behind their wings
He said that Angels and Vampires hide behind their wings

They enter the cold night air
and head south on Patterson street
Climb up the cathedral stairs
propelled by the blood and caffeine

Then he mentions he offers redemption
Carmilla can't make up her mind

And he said that Angels and Vampires hide behind their wings
He said that Angels and Vampires hide behind their wings
Track Name: Lonesome October Night
Jack the Ripper and his old dog Snuff
prepared themselves with a wand and knife
Everything will be changed by the end of The Game
on this Lonesome October Night

Crazy Jill went to the top of the hill
Gray the cat was by her side
they had to open the gate before it's too late
on this Lonesome October Night

Snuff the Dog and his Master Jack
were the only closers there that night
Larry Talbot howled at the moon
to give the openers a fright

The Great Detective had it all figured out
before the clock had struck midnight
The Elder Gods will return and the city will burn
on this Lonesome October Night

Jack and Jill faced each other on the hill
Snuff and Gray were by their sides
Now everything's changed at the end of The Game
on this Lonesome October Night
