• Once upon a midnight morbid,
    Moon so bright; terror accorded
    The world grows dim,
    The light has gone
    Darkness prevails;
    They’ll be no dawn
    Oh flickering candle
    Flames of the past;
    How much longer will we last?

    Blood runs downhill,
    Crimson tears we shed
    All the world is dyed in red

    Spoken words and whispered crimes
    Love and murder; neither mine
    Shadows rule the hearts of men
    None are innocent nor make amend

    Lies so common
    Drip off their tongues
    Life itself is over done

    Dance with us in the graveyard’s den
    And we will take you home again
