Have A Wonderful Halloween!






The night is still
And the frost it bites my face
I wear my silence like a mask
And murmur like a ghost
"trick or treat"
"trick or treat"
The bitter and the sweet

The carefree days
Are distant now
I wear my memories like a shroud
I try to speak but words collapse
Echoing
"trick or treat"
"trick or treat"
The bitter and the sweet

I wander though your sadness
Gazing at you with scorpion eyes
Halloween......halloween

A sweet reminder
In the ice-blue nursery
Of a childish murder
Of hidden lustre
And she cries
"trick or treat"
"trick or treat"
The bitter and the sweet

I wander through your sadness
Gazing at you with scorpion eyes
Halloween......halloween

Siouxsie and the Banshees
