Andy: “Dour domestic ditty for the Apple Venus pot. Never really finished up the lyric in time. So here's a post Venus demo. Self knowledge is never pretty. ‘I don't remember too well but I think John Wayne was in it’.”

LyricsEdit

Shalloween is the one night of the year

when the face mask slips and we see who we really are

Shalloween is the one night we should fear

when the fabric rips and we glimpse every private scar


Midnight chimes, the witching hour

I'm sweet to strangers but inside I'm sour,

and the darkness is lighting up all that it can

Dead of night but I'm cursed with life,

a jack-o-lantern hollowed by a knife,

and I'm praying don't leave me alone with this man on shalloween


Shalloween is the one night of the year

when the face mask slips and we see who we really are

Memory calls, not for trick or treat

but to push its skewer through my thinking meat,

and the mirror pictures a crumbling sham

Every monstrous fantasy has come to call up on the face of me

and I'm nearer to not knowing just who I am


Shalloween

Shalloween is the one night we should fear

when the fabric rips and we glimpse every private scar

Shalloween,

Shalloween
