Bonnie Entringer I like this song 'cause it scares me to think of the undead walking among us. It also gives me the chance to say "You Will go to Bruce Reave's web page www.brucereaves.com & buy one of Everything Bruce sells." What do I get? I get to nag Bruce to get back into his studio, which is where he should be Now instead of reading this. Favorite track: Vampires (come and get some).

When the night has come She takes to flight for blood Cuz she’s gonna find What she needs tonight She will feed on you Keep you half alive The dark angel comes Ride the night In a storm that lasts forever Out across the bay Where the ravens play Cold and high You might see the gates of heaven Through the pouring rain But you’re miles and miles away

Purple, blue, red to black These are the colors that you give back After a while it'll turn to green A little reminder of what you mean Across the field I see your light Sounds of wailing pierce the night Flaming embers light the sky Our love is burning and this is why I love you, I love you to death Sing to me darling when you draw your last breath Come to me sweetly and leave me possessed I love you, I love you, I love you to death *break* Beautiful package of sharpened knives A wooden box to hold your lies Rusted coils, a glass syringe The anniversary of our revenge I love you, I love you to death Think of me darling when you draw your last breath No need to worry, no need to confess I love you, I love you, I love you to death *break* Side by side upon the hill Our brambled vines are growing still Beneath the moor, the growing heather The sun sets in the west forever I love you, I love you to death Sing to me darling when you draw your last breath Come to me sweetly and leave me possessed I love you, I love you, I love you to death I love you, I love you, I love you to death

Killer You set fire to the sea You’re such a big mystery, killer You never sleep An old man A long, long time ago once told me If you ever really wanna hurt somebody Take it from an old man Go for the heart, that’s the key But there’s a marksman Takin’ aim at me Dodgin’ flyin’ bullets Constantly And the devil Follows closely He was just waitin’ for me Killer Put away your weaponry Here, have your victim’s plea Killer, please I beg your mercy But this is me I’ve got a murderer inside of me Some sort of split personality Jekyll and Hyde in my veins Runnin’ free But there’s a marksman Takin’ aim at me Dodgin’ flyin’ bullets Constantly And the devil Follows closely He was just waitin’ for me After all

Pumpkin Head 02:14
Pumpkin headed woman is all I need I just cut off the top and I scoop out the seeds In her pumpkin head with a Jack-o-lantern smile When she’s walking through the corn you can see her for a mile With her pumpkin head, witch’s shoes on her feet Shufflin’ down the street, tryin’ to trick or treat She’s my pumpkin head, pumpkin head My pumpkin head She’s my pumpkin head That Jack-o-lantern grin may need an orthodontist But I wouldn’t change a thing to be perfectly honest ‘Bout my pumpkin head, pumpkin head She’s my pumpkin head, my pumpkin head My pumpkin head She’s sweet as pumpkin pie With her triangle nose and her triangle eyes She’s my pumpkin head, oh and I thank the lord For sending me a woman with a head like a gourd Pumpkin head, she’s my pumpkin head Little pumpkin head She’s sweet and kind, no she’s never a meanie You oughta see the way she handles my zucchini My little pumpkin head got a fire inside When I see her coming I swell up with pride When we both grow old and there’s frost on the pumpkin Baby, that ain’t gonna stop me from a little dicky dunkin’ Pumpkin head! Pumpkin head She’s my pumpkin head My pumpkin head She’s my pumpkin head My pumpkin head, pumpkin head, pumpkin head My pumpkin head My pumpkin head My pumpkin My little My little

Morella 04:14
Once was a lady Morella (first born, last breath) Skin like a porcelain doll (first born, last breath) Songs from her lips drive a man to the tip top Teeter on the edge of her magic breath He marries the songbird Morella (first born, last breath) A union of syrup gone sour (first born, last breath) She bends him in spells with tonic she sells As romances but these trances are just murderous advances Morella, you will have the last laugh Tick tock, your voice it never stops Morella, from the lips of a babe You call me Call me You’re looking for your luster, Morella (first born, last breath) Laughing from your deathbed you say “You hate me in life but you’ll love me in death” What a curious crumb from your last breath Morella, you will have the last laugh Tick tock, your voice it never stops Morella, from the lips of a babe You call me Call me Left me a daughter peculiar Sings with the tongue of her mother Child with no name ‘til the baptism day In the ear of the priest returns the deceased Morella, you will have the last laugh Tick tock, your voice it never stops Morella, from the lips of a babe You call me Call me Morella, you will have the last laugh Tick tock, your voice it never stops Morella, from the lips of a babe You call me Call me You call me Call me You call me Call me

Ghost Ship 03:24
Graveyard shift tendin’ to this bridge Not a lift yet, weather’s foggy and wet I went to rest my head for a sec I awoke at 2:30 in the mornin’ From the sound of loud roaring Then there it appeared out of the mist to the west The frightful sight of the silhouette Before my bridge was this massive ship I flipped the switch to lift up the arms The situation was a mess, the thing wouldn’t lift The gears wouldn’t shift and then it hit The impact, I’m sure it was bound to do me harm But nothin’ No breaks, not even a scratch It just passed right through me Passed and kept movin’ On the track Ghost ship Sails on fire Ghost ship Sails on fire On this rig was an assembly of the scariest crew of ghouls The captain with his foot restin’ on his chest of jewels Parrot on his shoulder, barkin’ orders Pirates with no eyes in their sockets, no skin on their carcass Workin’ intently and swingin’ from the masts I knew this ship was rockin’ and movin’ fast Sway to the sea I stared on in shock and awe of this impossible scene that I saw It left to the east and I felt at ease as I … … off to the distance and in the darkness and open water Then it burst into flames and lit on fire Ghost ship Sails on fire Ghost ship Sails on fire Ghost ship Sails on fire Ghost ship Sails on fire Ghost ship Sails on fire

You never know how many moves you’ll make You never know how many breaths you’ll take You’ll never know even if you try To follow all the rules of a healthy life Chorus: I cry, why oh why Must I watch the beauty all die We’re all on borrowed time Death’s waiting on the line You never know what kind of life you’ll live You never know how much you’ll give You never know ‘til it passes you by Another star fallen from the sky Chorus

Got myself a fix but it didn’t do the trick Tried to get warm but my blood’s too thick And I need an operation ‘cause I’m feeling kinda sick Body’s on the floor and I’m sinking like a brick Never seen the sky from the edge of a crater Got my veins hooked up to a dead generator Coulda been a Jedi but I had to be a Vader I’ve been riding through the fires in the service elevator Like a broken arrow I couldn’t shoot it clean I’ve been looking at my life like a dirty magazine Shoulda been easy but from what I’ve seen It’s hard to get candy from a cash machine Lights out, elevator up There’s a deal going down and I gotta get a cut When you run the west side With the dealers and the creeps You sweat it when they call And you hear them in your sleep Kick ‘em to the curb they always crawlin’ back You hear ‘em in the alleys when they talking that smack So I beat ‘em with a stick, and I’m feeling like a fiend Running out of tricks and it’s nearly Halloween Shoulda been easy but from all I’ve seen It’s hard to get candy from a cash machine Shoulda been easy but from all I’ve seen It’s hard to get candy from a cash machine Yesterday I gotta tip from a dirty cop He said we gotta cash out, so I’m closing shop Is there any other way, I been having my doubts Gimme one last deal and I swear I’m out There won’t be no complications, you can come for the ride It’ll go down easy I’ll be satisfied You’re a trick you’re a treat, there’s no in-between Time to get candy from a cash machine You’re a trick you’re a treat, there’s no in-between It’s time to get candy from a cash machine You’re a trick you’re a treat, there’s no in-between Time to get candy from a cash machine

Hello, God Are you listenin’? I ain’t got nothin’ left in me Hey, God Can you hear me? I don’t wanna live no more I’m so sick of me I feel like a thousand bloody bruises And a whole lotta nothin’ I wanna push in my eyes with my thumbs And blow out my eardrums And lay myself down in the ground And grow empty and numb I’ve come completely undone

It’s so hard bein’ a werewolf When you’re goin’ through puberty All the girls they look so pretty But they don’t like me ‘Cause I’m so hairy I go to school every day And sit by my lonesome No one talks to me They don’t think I’m handsome But I found a girl that likes me for me I’m gonna bring her home to meet my family Son, how could be hangin’ around with that human trash? You’re disrespecting your father. Why can’t you find a nice werewolf girl to hang around with? Please, Dad, listen, I found my white dove Caroline is the one I love She likes it when I howl at the moon I’ve been marked and I can’t be saved You’re just gonna break that nice girl’s heart. I’ve raised you better than that. I’m always trying to help you meet nice werewolf girls and you never listen. Your father’s right, you’re embarrassing the family. Jimmy, Jimmy, you’re the one for me I’m gonna make your parents see I’m not scared of your kind ‘Cause I can’t get you out of my mind No, I can’t get you out of my mind No, I can’t get you out of my mind Don’t worry we can be together No one can tear us apart I really love you, Caroline Hold me, Jimmy, hold me Once a werewolf, always a werewolf
19.
There’s a place you can hide Might be safe for awhile When the wind picks up And you feel her touch She will take it all But it’s not enough The dark angel comes Ride the night In a storm that lasts forever Out across the bay Where the ravens play Cold and high You might see the gates of heaven Through the pouring rain But you’re miles and miles away Ride the night In a storm that lasts forever Out across the bay Where the ravens play Cold and high You might see the gates of heaven Through the pouring rain But you’re miles and miles and miles away

Rise spirits rise Rise spirits rise Rise spirits rise Rise spirits rise Dance with the dead And a happy melody in your head If you really wanna see them again Well you can Dance with the dead And a happy melody in your head If you really wanna see them again Well you can Callin’ Uncle Ward on the Ouija board And invited him to the party All the boys and girls from the afterworld Not afraid to get down and dirty They’ll be havin’ a ball They’ll be walkin’ through walls Comin’ out of the grave lookin’ purdy Spirits gonna fly ‘cause we all gonna die And everybody’s feelin’ hiiiiigh Dance with the dead And a happy melody in your head If you really wanna see them again Well you can Yeah, yeah Dance with the dead And a happy melody in your head If you really wanna see them again Well you can Heaven sakes alive You ain’t too weak to survive I seen you at the church gettin’ saved The preacher led the band We were clappin’ our hands Everyone was startin’ to sway Things could be worse, in the back of a hearse You’d be cryin’ all the way to the graveyard C’mon everyone no regrets for what’s done Everybody’s havin’ fun Dance with the dead And a happy melody in your head If you really wanna see them again Well you can
