Shadows on The Moon

Now’s the time where magic starts to change the world we see
Where mist and moonlight intersect making everything anew
Darkness spreads its blanket and it grasps the fading light
As the devil dances with the shadows on the moon

Children run from house to house begging for one treat more
While in the darkness, evil waits to venture from the void
The innocence is fleeting as it ends before the hour
While the devil dances with the shadows on the moon

Gargoyles break their concrete holds and spread their wings to fly
Taking back the night before the dawn of a new day
Evil hides in alleyways in costumes we all know
While the devil dances with the shadows on the moon

No zombie walks or howling wolf is out upon this night
Creatures of the past are waiting to come forth
Imaginary monsters to keep children in their beds
While the devil dances with the shadows on the moon

At midnight proper all will change and souls will be reborn
And those who signed a pact will fade away
Transferring souls on this dark night happens without noise
While the devil dances with the shadows on the moon

Witches fly among the clouds on broomsticks we are told
But these are only stories spread to keep the good at bay
The night sky is inhabited by those who fear the light
While the devil dances with the shadows on the moon

The sun will rise as it always does with the night before laid waste
As the gargoyles settle in as guardians for the year
One night is all the devil has to gather up his treats
and wait again in darkness to dance with the shadows on the moon
