Track Name: The Parents - Wiggle Your Tendrils
Spooks and Ghouls put on your boots and jewels
Gym, tan and then get highlights with the wolfman
Now TW we don't mean to trouble you
but the graveyard's started shifting toward the bar at the W
the Argus lent the Cyclops his eyelash pencil
and then they Wiggled their Tendrils!

So shake the cobwebs off to hard gore and soft goth
let's paint this town red from the Twilight till the Dawn of the Dead
the skeleton says its worth chancing the bones he'll break dancing
the mummy (freestyle) unwraps to the marilyn manson
they all made jack o'lantern t-shirts with a homemade stencil
and then they Wiggled their Tendrils

It's dracula's time, but he's just all aflutter
with a bat in the belfrey and his mind in the gutter
He'll come down from his castle and we'll rise from the grave
to do the newest dance craze for the maimed and depraved

First take two steps to the right and turn widdershins
ghouls lift your limbs and wiggle your tendrils
zombies stomp your feet like you're raisin dead beats
ghosts shake your sheets and wiggle your tendrils

Call an exorcist your head is spinning right round
Turn the lights down and wiggle your tendrils
Be like medusa and do the watussa
snakes on her brain she shakes her cabussa and wiggles her tendrils

we got trick or treat beats so come cut footloose
take three shots of Betelgeuse and wiggle your tendrils
wear your scream mask your hockey mask your mask of michael myers
the vampire turned his amp up higher and wiggled his tendrils

alien breaksouts make you lose your takeout
until you twist and shout and Wiggle your Tendrils
you can do the swim but watch out for the fin
everybody jaws hands!

If the cauldron gets too smokey we'll go out for karaoke…
Track Name: Daytime Lights - Cat Castle
I know the cat castle’s scary yeah but that’s alright
I wanna get real spooky on a Halloween night
I’m getting real sick and tired of the party scene
People wear the same costumes and I think they’re really weak

Yeah the partying was fun back when I was twenty-one
But the same lame hipsters try to out do everyone
I thought that Teen Wolf 2 was funny the first time that I saw it
Now I’m getting’ kinda bored and I’m ready to get off it

The cat castle’s scary yeah but that’s okay
‘Cause this is one night of the year it’s supposed to be that way
When I think of all the options there’s just one that I foresee
I wanna go to the cat castle for this Halloween

Well I tend to like cats and castles too
But the horrors of this place are nothing new
My cousin’s friend’s dad, went in on a dare
And he’s still covered with fur with whiskers and a tail

They say the cats are larger than the tigers in the zoo
That the walls are made of bones and they’re eating eyeball stew
The carpet’s made of human hair and all you hear are screams
Of people seeing kitty cats attack them in their dreams

The evening doesn’t sound like it’s my dreamland
But if I get real scared I could hold his hand
I know she’s freaked out but she’s looking great
I hope the cat castle will be our first date

Well now look over there, what do I see inside
Thirty cats in party clothes
Is that the electric slide?
There’s candy corn and mallomars and even a few smarties
I never even knew just how much cats could party

They’re looking our way but with no animosity
Do you think that maybe you would dance with me?
Oh that’s so sweet, I was hoping you would ask me
Those slinky kitty cats make me wanna shake my booty

Those cats are not just scary things they’re having fun and all I see
Is love between these furry ones and also you and me
No evidence of frightening ones just happy cats for everyone
These kittens are just little things with big big hearts that love to sing of love
Love, love, love…
Track Name: Thodrey - Beware the Gnarrs!
A tale of such terror
Three friends were not aware of
Dreaming of a snickers
And glitter pumpkin stickers

Tommy was a zombie corpse
Becky dressed up like a nurse
Head to toe in spider webs
I was a knight without a head

When all was done we piled high
To eat it all you’d not survive
At once began the show and trade
What candy treasure fortune gave

Beware the Gnarrs!
Beware the Gnarrs!
Pop rocks, snickers, gummy worms
Atomic Fireballs
Tootsie pops, pixie sticks
Trade with me! Snickers please
Trade with me! Your friend I’ll be

Down below in Tommy’s sack
Sticky soft orange and black
A terrible untradable curse
The Gnarr emerged! The very worst!

No one moved, surprised to see
Becky dared someone to eat
Tommy poked the waxy back
He took a bite
and then he died
(faintly)
Trade with me

Trick and treat all down the street
You never think of what you’ll meet
Beware that there deep in your sack
The Gnarr is there and will attack!
Track Name: Chouette - Ribbons
My boyfriend was always asking about that ribbon around my neck.
I said to him, "Reuben, you leave that ribbon alone!"
I thought if he knew the truth, it would scare him away.
But he had to know. Couldn't let it go. So I gave in.

Off comes my ribbon
Off goes my head
Don't think he minds it
But I wish that I were dead

In the kitchen, Reuben's slicing apples
When his knife slips, catches my wrist
He was so sweet
He didn't flinch
Just wiped the blood away and said
"No, don't be scared. Just tie a ribbon on it
'Til we go to bed."

Off comes my ribbon
My hand goes, too
He kinda likes it
What am I supposed to do?

In the back yard, Reuben's trimming branches
When his shears slip, catching my ankle
He was so sweet
He didn't flinch
Just wiped the blood away and said
"No, don't be scared. Just tie a ribbon on it
'Til we go to bed."

Off comes my ribbon
Off drops my foot
I catch his eyes, I know that look

In the living room I am reading
Reuben buries his axe in my knee
He was so sweet
He didn't flinch
Just wiped the blood away and said
"No, don't be scared. Just tie a ribbon on it
'Til we go to bed."

Off comes my ribbon
Off goes my leg
I do not mind it
I think I like it
I think he likes it
I think I like it

Reuben, untie my ribbon
Reuben, be my devotee
I will be your amputee when we go off to bed
When you go down on one knee
I'll give you my head
Track Name: Elf Princess Gets a Harley - The Best Idea
He had the best idea.
He started November first of last year.

Paper mache to make the face
wrinkles and warts made out of clay.
Added some fangs and fur and fur and claws
and fake blood dribbled off the jaws.

It was the best idea
and this would finally be his year.

He gave it a giant crooked hunchback
tufts of hair all spiky and black
leathery wings and patches of scales
Plus a seven foot long tail.

It was the best idea
and this would finally be his year.

He wanted to try it on
He'd been waiting for so long
it was every kind of awesome
in one scary monster costume.

With the final stitch in place
a smile flew across his face.

It was the best idea
and the moment was finally here.

He tried to try it on
but clearly something had gone wrong
It passed through his spectral body,
caught on the bed post.
So for another year he'd have to go as himself --
just a disappointed ghost.
Track Name: Enemy & Robot - Because There's Nowhere to Go
lights are smashed in shards
overturned cars
everything charred and carbon

in the empty rooms
bodies and bones
white and exposed

post-apocalypse
everyone sighed
one final time and left us

we are what remains
vapor and heat
ghosts without sheets

give me a body or a space to be enclosed
under a table or a closet full of clothes
we are the dead, we miss our living hosts
oh it's dark without you

everyday we search
but we're alone
billions of souls

all the things we were
the greater sums
have come undone

give me a body or a space to be enclosed
under a table or a closet full of clothes
we are the dead, we miss our living hosts
oh it's dark without you

we were vagabonds
trying costumes on
lifetimes passed one by one
all the bodies we came to know as our own

now we're trapped in this
mindless endlessness
souls like us don't erode
we grow old

give me a body or a space to be enclosed
under a table or a closet full of clothes
we go from house to house and rest in empty skulls
some stay together so as not to feel exposed
we are the dead, we miss our living hosts
oh we're lost without you
Track Name: Tropical Dancer - The Players in the Piano
Pardon the dust and wipe off the rust
Drop in your tokens and leave it to us
We're the players in the piano
The players in the piano

Deep in the back of attics were stacked
Covered in cobwebs uncomfortably packed
We're the players in the piano
The players in the piano

But if you wake up in the dark of the night
Looking for someone to talk to
Or someone to give you a horrible fright
Stay perfectly still and we'll come for you

Each one of these 88 keys
Move to a halting inaudible beat
By the players in the piano
The players in the piano

So shut off your tapes and pull closed the drapes
We can make sure that no noise will escape
We're the players in the piano
The players in the piano

Did you hear the carnival's coming to town
Dragging its prisoners behind it
There's nothing to fear in that cheap haunted house
The secrets are all in the basement

Billy approached creaky old machine
Brushing away the sheet music that lay open across its belly
He'd heard the legends, but never quite knew what to expect
Then, as he slowly and gingerly opened the top
He began to hear a few voices peeping out
One after the other, they started to call to him
Pulling him deeper into the strings and into the underbelly
Of that old monster

We're the players in the piano
The players in the piano
The players in the piano
We're playing especially for you
Track Name: Scrand - Without Halloween
Without Halloween there'd be no costumes
without any costumes there'd be no sexy costumes
and without any sexy costumes there'd be
no one in sexy costumes

Without Halloween there'd be no party
without any party there'd be no fun
without any fun there'd be no memory
of anything happening

now its time to get personal
now its time to say
something true
like I love you and I do and I do and I do and I do

It all happened on all hallows eve night
my family left home to avoid all the hype
yeah the timing was right and I saw that the timing was right

she walked right in the door
I can't tell you no more
and no more and no more
no more more more
and no more and no more and no more and no more

I gazed with my million mile stare
I say with my blue and pink hair
please stay
cuz this is a safe place

and it was our safe place
and it was our escape
and it was our safe place
and it was our escape and escape and escape and escape

so without halloween there'd be no me
at least not the way that I turned out to be
and we'd be stuck with stale old boring
christmas and thanksgiving
Track Name: Elf Princess Gets a Harley - Your Pitchfork to my Throat
Look into my eyes, all three of them
and tell me that you don't want me.
'Cause I've loved you for a thousand years
but you know that, of course
Since you're the one who cast that hex upon me

Remember that night when we first met
when the lynch mob stormed the castle
and you were the one with the torch
you led the way

I know that you must kill me
to buy your soul a pardon from this world
The hounds are closing
and I sense my time has come
So I really must say
I'm glad you found me first

Here we stand, a millenium gone
your pitchfork to my throat
and you're still as beautiful
as you were then.
Track Name: B. T. Nook - Emergency: Paging Dr. Mario
Red-yellow, double-blue
I know what to do
Blue-yellow, double-red
These pathogens will soon be dead

Monster Mash on the radio
All my friends had somewhere to go
Blue-red, double-yellow
Emergency: I'm paging Dr. Mario

Give me the fever, give me the chill
I've got the sickness, and you have got the pills
Give me the fever, give me the chill
My prescription needs to be refilled

One player, Level 10
Maybe I don't need my friends
No goblins, ghouls or ghosts
Only viruses and Dr. Mario

Give me the fever, give me the chill
I've got the sickness, and you have got the pills
Give me the fever, give me the chill
My prescription needs to be refilled

Emergency: I'm paging Dr. Mario
Track Name: Rachelintrees - Boo Mitzvah
they said i'd never be a rabbi
for that you've got to be alive
they said i'd never be a rabbi
i didn't listen to them
i didn't listen to them

i know you're used to transformation
you make one each full moon
i know you're used to transformation
you are a werepup my son
but you'll be a werewolf soon

oh oh! oh oh! oh oh!
you'll be a werewolf soon

it's time to bite the silver bullet
and leave your childhood behind
it's time to bite the silver bullet
read from the Torah, my dear
read from the Torah, my little man!

i alway tell the truth, that's just what spirits do
to get my message through, i'll go
