1. Welcome to psychoinc
Here you will find thing that haunt my mind
of every hour of every day
here you will see things that scare even me
all escaping from my twisted brain
like goblins and ghouls that will tare you apart
demons and werewolves that will eat your heart
and from the shadows behind the trees
vampires and witches are waiting for thee
for on this night of Halloween
all your nightmares will be seen
watching and following as you escape
deeper in the dark they all await!

2. The Witch's Ride
She rides through the night on a broom, through the clouds, past the moon, singing her magical tune, casting her spell on the village below, waiting for all the monsters to show. Cackles a hiss as you sleep and you miss the magic of the witch on All Hallows Eve.
Out of the graves they crawl from the witch’s call as souls float from there tombstones all, as she flies past the trees on her broom, howls from the beast you hear as he calls to the moon while she’s near on All Hallows Eve.
So best it is that you stay in bed and not poke out your head until Halloween has fled and the monster return to bed.

3. "Everything is not what it seems"
Kids dressing up like vampires and fairies.
The cool night air filled with spooks and scaries.
Decorations galore line the windows and porches.
People marching the town with their buckets and torches.
Ghosts and ghouls handing out goodies and treats.
To the trick-or-treaters brave enough to walk the streets.
Loud music blasting from the Halloween parties.
Buckets of candy filled with tootsie-rolls and smarties.
Children running and screaming, their faces filled with fear,
their hearts pumping faster as the danger draws near.
The darkness creeps along the edge of the road,
glowing eyes shining bright, like they're about to explode.
Scratching and scraping with it's razor-like claws,
that were oddly attached to a cute set of paws.
The children get closer to the creature in the dark,
all the while expecting to hear a growl or a bark.
When out of the shadows the creature gives sight.
The kids are prepared to put up a fight.
But adding surprise to all their bright faces,
a kitten emerges and in circles it races.
The kids are relieved to see just a cat,
but all of a sudden it turns into a bat.
The children departed and started to scream,
oh the horrors that fill the night of Halloween.

4. All Hallows' Eve
The dogs stay keen,
barking at the sounds of tis' unholy night.
It is dark except for the jack o' lanterns light,
In due time, the witches, and creatures of the night will be in sight.
The witches mingle in the sky like a kite.
The were wolves howl with all their might.
Ghouls all around moan & groan rattling their chains,
feeling only shame and aching pain.
Yet what is Halloween without me?
A silent cat, covered in black, the color of midnight.
I walk the streets alone,
ALL HALLOWS' EVE,
on my own.

5. Crimson Night
Deep blue sky of velvet night.
Cold white sparkles of distant light.
Lifting Heads; sleek with fur;
Glowing eyes alive for Her.
Hear the creatures calling, calling.
Into darkness you'll start falling.
Watched over by the Harvest Moon.
The Hunt begins! Start running soon!
Here they come; so sleek and fast.
Red blood spills; you scream your last.
Soft and cruel; the creature's bite.
This day is known as Crimson Night.

6. "Interview with the Monster"
Why do you believe in Monsters?
Is it the call of the horrors of the midnight hour?
Is it the beckon of fright that chills your bones?
Is it the painful crunch of a twig off in the woods?
Is it the howl of a far off dog, wolf, or coyote?
Then why do you believe in Monsters?
Could it be that you do believe because of the truth?
It must be! The truth! The truth that calls you!
The truth the begs you to stand from your chair.
The truth the leads you down the hall.
The truth the opens the bathroom door.
The truth that makes you look into the mirror.
So it is then! The truth! That is why you believe in Monsters then?
Well? Am I right?
You want to know what I believe in?
Very much so!
Did you look in the mirror?
Well... yes, of course I did.
In that case... you are right... I do believe in monsters.

8. HALLOWMAS EVE
That is what I call it
You may call it Halloween
It's all Hallow's eve
What's your plan for the night
Trick or treat or ghostly pranks
Jack O' Lantern and Bonfires
Always there to lit the night
But why the horror night
When saints day is at dawn
With all the horror tales
Yet saints to pray by dawn
Halloween hallows eve
Children hope with excitement
For a horror tricky night
With dead costumes as death itself
Yet fun and laughter fills the air

9. Next We Kill Turkies!
Halloween's nice, there's plenty of candy;
The kitties are cute, the lions are dandy.
But the flowers that rose are starting to fall,
The cats with cold coats have started to crawl.
So fill up your buckets, enjoy your sweets,
Because after tonight, we weather bitter white sheets.
