Liner Notes

I like to write at least 1 Halloween lyric each year. Sometimes they feature vampires, werevolves or other scary creatures of the night. This year though it feels like there are scarier monsters in town

Lyrics

This Year At Halloween

(Intro)
This year at Halloween
They really want to hear you scream

(Verse 1)
Evil's not hiding in the shadows
It's puffed out its chest in plain view
The threats made are crass and vulgar
Intended to intimidate you

(Chorus)
This year at Halloween
They really want to hear you scream
It's not a fairytale
And it's not a dream.
This year at Halloween
They really want to hear you scream
They want you crying on your knees
Head stuck in a guillotine

(Verse 2)
Evil’s smirking at a long table
But no heart beats in its chest
Dripping words of senseless horror
While pretending to be blessed

(Chorus)
This year at Halloween
They really want to hear you scream
It's not a fairytale
And it's not a dream.
This year at Halloween
They really want to hear you scream
They want you crying on your knees
Head stuck in a guillotine

(Verse 3)
The monsters are all out there
And, trust me, they are real
They’re playing with their guns and bombs
And live to hear you squeal

(Chorus – alternative)
But this year at Halloween
Let’s not let them hear us scream
We’re not a slave to
Their hate machine
Yeah, this year at Halloween
Let’s turn the tables, make them scream
Push the monsters back in their box
We’ll not bow down to their regime

I like the twist at the end. It seems this could be a metaphor for more than Halloween.

what a perceptive and creative way of talking about the Halloween season, circa 2022-- great concept and you ran with it and did a fine lyric! I might want to (if its ok with you) nick the idea slightly and do a more focused on US politics (and our insane ex-president, etc) Halloween kind of thing!
