Only got this song and dance to the scare the pants right off of you!
I'm gonna go wild! wild! wild! Like a wolfman on the moon
Burn rock bottom til their ashes melt Break those embers til they shed their cells Spirits rid of their profane selves Free from grotesque want
You got needs, we got cold meet On the double with a shovel, just the living give us trouble
Scream Queen 02:43
You're no Janet Leigh in the shower You're no Jamie Lee in Halloween
Horrified 02:48
I got caught in the disorder, it always finds me An ugly tide of water washed it in from off the street Ancient murders on the hilltop, the victims raining from the yard Of the Whitby St. Mary's, and Stoker aint even involved
Witch Call 03:47
Swear on my voodoo doll
Did you call my name? No, you're just having fun Did you know these woods Aren't for everyone I'm out here alone With an axe to grind And I can't keep killing Off my mind And I can't forget My tortured past And I can't see straight With this stupid mask Here I come And you turn to run.
Under the thick pine summer sky canopy The tangled paths of tragedy Lead you here - right back to me My crimsoned silver art My subject of lost innocence Lost hope, lost time, lost common sense Unearthing this unearthly bend In the line of spiteful hearts It goes shatter splatter splatter It goes shatter splatter splatter Shatter splatter splatter - my song played in the dark A desperation lullaby to smother the unsatisfied desires That won't be denied or calmed
Got a feeling that I'm headed for the psycho ward
I'm not an insect or an animal, disease, a virus or bacteria You wouldn't know it to look at me
This night's doomed to a dismal end No one knows who let him in Caught him trying to bite the head of your girlfriend That's when the zombie wrecked the party again Let the dogs run loose outside, sneezed over the food Called the cops on all of us, told everybody in the neighborhood His jokes were offensive and his breath was worse Everybody was desperate to leave first But that undead jerk blocked us in with his hearse That's when the zombie wrecked the party again Smoked all of your cigarettes, drank all of my booze Dropped the good drugs in the bowl Flushed 'em out into the city sewer Puked on the carpet and broke the fan Before he lost his right eye and left hand Kept changing the music back to Steely Dan That's how the zombie wrecked the party again (Then he played a solo...) This night's doomed to a dismal end Still don't know who let him in But now he's sucking out the brains of your girlfriend That's how the zombie wrecked the party again And the zombie wrecked the party again And the zombie wrecked the party again


Oh, how tirelessly we worked on this for months upon months! Years upon years! Look in your hearts and spare us your change, good sir! Do flip us a bill, kind madam! Thank you, dear lords and ladies. Oh, thank you, ever so!
