I've had this one going through my head all damn day and all night, so far. This is only one part of the whole, so I'm sure people already know what I'm doing with it.

I can hear my demons knocking;
I know they’re standing at the door.
It has been so long since I’ve known peace;
These dreams still quaking in my head,
The bloodshed and the memories
Always rising from the grave, instead
Of staying where they belong;
Tell me, when and where did I go so wrong,
When I’ve stood the test of time,
And all I’ve ever loved was washed out with the tide?

Come one, come all… Brethren of the Fall…
Join me from the coldest shallows… Children of the Hallows…
Can you hear the howling of the hounds;
The call of the crows as their murders now impose;
The gathering of a night unbound,
In the candlelight, the faces that scar your sight?
As layin’ in the tombs, awakened by the swoon,
The vampires’ whisper o’er a fog-heavy dune;
The melancholy roar of the ghosts galore,
And the Witches begin to stir their cauldron a-boiling roar?
Walking alone, upon the wailing night;
Even side-by side, in a prancing rite;
Cackles so maniacal, ringing in your ears;
No need for justification.
It is time to embrace your greatest fears.
We have been here so many times before;
It is just so different, to-day, as the sun falls b‘yond the shore;
With the demons and devils, terrors and more,
In tow of the falling daylight, knocking at the door…
Come, ye, hither, brother and sister, One And All,
Beckoned by the season, the burning of the fall…
It is time to heed the autumn call of the night’s new shadows,
Awaken, once again, ye Children of the Hallows.
Brethren to the thorn, a toccata reborn,
In the spells of a world now long forlorn,
Nothing is condemned for the thrill, this night,
As long as we heed that code and plight…
Laughing with a madness, Cackle with the jackal at your side,
Raise the lanterns high with pride;
All things sanctified and vilified,
Since the dawn of time,
On this night, let the ostracized
Become the only rule you can’t deny.
One and all, faces in the walls,
Stand, everyone, now, proud and tall;
Become the black sheep of your own worlds,
As the wind may echo like a maniac's words.
Border on the mad-lands, and become manic;
Let the devilish light flicker in your eyes so tantric;
So sickeningly fantastic,
Let your minds, tonight, go frantic.
To drive away the demons that lie inside,
Let the lanterns light the path, for you;
Let the flames of the bonfire in your minds
Swirl and swoon, the madness to ensue.
Walk in the light of the jack-o-lanterns,
While the night draws on, as the fire still burns.
Join from the shadows, like the burning gallows;
Children of the Hallow.
