Hallowe'en Song

On All Hollows' Eve we’ll put on the masks
Of demons and devils and ghosts and we’ll dance
With the slain and the shame and the pain of our past
On All Hollows’ Eve we’ll go dancin’

We’ll dance with the spirits they used to revere
We’ll dance with the children who disappeared
We’ll dance with the kings who held them in fear
On All Hollows’ Eve we’ll go dancin’

I’ll remember the movements of years gone by
I’ll remember my beloved on the day that she died
When I looked in her eyes and knew that she lied
On All Hollows’ Eve she went dancin’

We’ll dance with the currents and waves, consumed
Like the tides are called to dance by the moon
Shake like the chill blown over a tomb
On All Hollows’ Eve we’ll go dancin’

I won’t dance with the sisters who like to flirt
Or be entranced by the whispering winds, I’m alert
I won’t dance with the girl with the patchwork skirt
On All Hollows’ Eve they’ll be dancin’

I’ll sit in the graveyard and mutter the curse
Until my beloved rises up from the dirt
She’ll look in my eyes and know that I’m pure
On All Hollows’ Eve we’ll go dancin’

On All Hollows’ Eve we’ll go dancin’
