Track Name: The Scarecrow Walks a Midnight
The Scarecrow Walks at Midnight
lyrics: N. Van Wagenen

I still remember
the first time I ever
laid eyes on you
Early November,
your innocent ember
lit a fire I can't control
Don't be afraid dear, just come with me
I'll show you a world meant for film and fantasy
Macabre masquerade here so take my hand
A life full of promise, despoiled and damned

I am the night
Embrace eternal life
Will you stay with me forever?
One moment of pain
breathes life to timeless fame
Just succumb to sweet surrender

Just once a season
these autumn winds
turn my mind to twisted thoughts
A shortcut home,
you cut through the fields
When midnight calls
The scarecrow walks

I am the night
Embrace eternal life
Will you stay with me forever?
One moment of pain
breathes life to timeless fame
Just succumb to sweet surrender

There's been others before, but none like you
Good God I deplore what they made me do
Keep you dancing, marionette
Smile as the chord winds 'round your neck

I am the night
Embrace eternal life
Will you stay with me forever?
One moment of pain breathes life to timeless fame
Just succumb to sweet surrender
Track Name: Hallowtide (demo '14)
Waltzed through the wind last night a symphony of limbs and leaves
Orange glare stained on your stare, their lovely death
We feel at home when everyone's pretending
Under ano autumn glow where dreams need no defending

I'll be your harvest valentine
As daylight fades with the year
For this and every Hallowtide
Til all is silent my dear

Dreading the normal life we're paralyzed in black and white
Too damn obstinate to be part of the hive
We're safe at home, a little heaven in perdition
Stepping out of toe and seeking no permission

I'll be your harvest valentine
As daylight fades with the year
For this and every Hallowtide
Til all is silent my dear
