Terrors fill the ghastly night
As Leviathans come out to play,
Monsters of all sizes and shapes
Frolic 'neath the blood moon's rays.

Atrocities from out of time
Archaeologists swear are extinct,
Roam throughout the awful dark
Like some loathsome missing links.

Horror fills the dreadful night
As beings from deep outer space,
Descend to Earth after twilight
Hoping to eradicate the human race.

Sinister figures lurk in graveyards
Prancing at the blood moon's call,
Romping, rolling, and cavorting
Hoping to see humanity's fall.

Demons from the depths of Hell
Hunting after living human prey,
Hoping soon to drag them down
Yo Hades where they cannot escape.

Terrors fill the ghastly night
With imps and living gargoyles,
Out to capture wandering people
Then drag them to the Devil's soil.

Seekers, Drifters, and night feeders
Hoping to feast in this bloody night,
All the evil creatures are out hunting
For human meat, beneath the moonlight.

Horror fills the dreadful night
The Darkling, Inferno, Almost People
Hunting for lone wandering folk
Far from the safety of the nearby steeple.

The Puppeteer, Drummer, and Ice Man
Death and mayhem is their intention,
As they plot evil against the villagers
With ghastly plans to foul to mention.
