oh you could be a haunted house and hold your lover like a ghost in the attic today I am a haunted house and they are coming through the cracks in the static you could light up like a jack o' lantern or a joint and breathe out a puff to lighten the air of the autumn night but you could spend your summer on Halloween island caught up in the spiderwebs dancin' with the ghosts of your past on halloween island hangin' with the skeletons slippin' through the holes in their hands 'cause you don't flesh out your plans you listen for the owls at night and think about the field that you used to stand in to hear the bats up in their flight making noise, swooping down, never landin' and you forget how the moon loves to meddle in your love life it must be hard for her i guess bein' so far away from her ocean wife but you could spend your summer on Halloween island caught up in the spiderwebs dancin' with the ghosts of your past on halloween island hangin' with the skeletons slippin' through the holes in their hands 'cause you don't flesh out your plans and I hope that you see that the real monsters don't come out on Halloween so go ahead play trick or treat because we are all our own worst enemies on Halloween island caught up in the spiderwebs dancin' with the ghosts of your past on Halloween island hangin' with the skeletons slippin' through the holes in their hands Halloween island caught up in the spiderwebs dancin' with the ghosts of your past on Halloween island hangin' with the skeletons slippin' through the holes in their hands 'cause you don't flesh out your plans

Fear 03:19
favorite one, you are a ghost haunt me for fun, hobby at most cinnamon spice, you keep me warm sugar is nice, but I am bored of the sweet sweet nothing you are promising to me of the sweet sweet nothing you are promising to me I spend my time gathering bones I'm not sure why I find them wherever I go under the bed is where it hides out of my head waiting to strike when I leave and you say you cannot promise anything anything and I only wanted to love you I only wanted to try oh I only wanted to haunt you I only wanted to be right and I only wanted to love you I only wanted to try oh I only wanted to haunt you I only wanted to be right and now I'm strung out I can't help but want you only temporary isn't enough for me when it's not just anybody it is you can't take your spell off me 'cause baby I'm in love baby I'm in love maybe I'm in love

We R Stupid 02:17
costumes, pictures, and parties candy, monsters, and ghosts you are the one I hold dearly you are the one I love most and you know yeah you know autumn leaves have come early down, down, gently we fall summer leaves in a hurry you know I've always loved fall and you know yeah you know I know that we are stupid I know that we are dumb we've had one try to prove it I know that we are too young and you know yeah you know that we'll get there in the end all I need is a lover and friend when the pumpkins are blown out and the ghosts go to bed Halloween, my dear, we'll try again

about

This weird short DIY ep is sort of about how much I love Halloween but mostly about how I'm dealing with change in this weird transitional period in my life. Halloween Island represents my fear of a lot of things. Growing up, abandonment, change, rejection, standard guitar tuning, spiders. I think Halloween is my favorite holiday because my constant anxiety seems more justified when the world is being scary on purpose. Or maybe it's just because I love pumpkins.
