This is Halloween:

Boys and girls of every age
Wouldn't you like to see something strange?

Come with me and you will see
The friends I've hung down from this tree...

This is Halloween, this is Halloween
Corpses scream in the dead of night!

This is Halloween, everybody make a scene
Trick or treat till the neighbors gonna die of fright.
It's our town, everybody scream!
In this town of Halloween...

I am the one hiding under your bed;
Licking your hand with a tongue so red and -

I am the one crawling up your stairs,
Thump-thump-drag, when no one's there...

This is Halloween, this is Halloween

Halloween! Halloween! Halloween! Halloween!
In this town we call home
Everyone hail to the pumpkin song.

In this town, don't we love it now?
Everybody's waiting for the next surprise!

Round that corner man, Jockey in the trash can;
Hunters waiting now to pounce, and how you'll...

Scream! This is Halloween
Sadako is on the screen!

Aren't you scared?
Well, that's just fine!


Say it once, say it twice
Alma Wade is never nice
Liquefied in the dead of night...

Everybody scream! Everybody scream!

In our town of Halloween.

I am the shadow man born without a face
Here in a flash and gone without a trace!


I am the killer when you call, "who's there?"
I am the psycho that is kissing your hair!

I am the dog that will visit at night
Filling your dreams till you smile with fright

This is Halloween, this is Halloween
Halloween! Halloween! Halloween! Halloween!
Halloween! Halloween!

Tender tendons everywhere
A human centipede makes a good scare

That's my job; it's to make you scream,
"It puts the lotion on its skin!"

In this town, don't we love it now?

Everybody's waiting for the next surprise!

Psychopath Jeff might gut you in the back
And scream like a banshee
Make a mask out of your skin!
This is Halloween, everybody scream -
Won't you please make way for a very special guy?

Our man Chen is King of the Pumpkin patch
Everyone hail to the Pumpkin King, now!

This is Halloween, this is Halloween
Halloween! Halloween! Halloween! Halloween!

In this town we call home
Everyone hail to the pumpkin song!

La la la la-lala-la-la
La La La La-LaLa-La-La
LA LA LA LA-LALA-LA-LA
LA LA LA LA-LALA-LA-LAH!

-Chen Yuan Wen, Remix of "This is Halloween" (Cover) by Marilyn Manson, 31st October 2012

Author's Comment:

Arrr maties,

T'day be halloween (it's past midnight so it's officially th' 31st) and therefore, I've prepared a perfect tribute t' this day.

Danny Elfman did the original version of 'This is Halloween' (as I've been reminded many times t'day). Manson did the cover and I used Manson's beat to write the tribute (sorry Elfman fans, th' beat was better xD). Anywho, I tried t' include as many modern references as possible. If ye can identify all of 'em, ye like creepypastas and the mainstream horror stuff. I wanted t' put more obscure creepypasta references, but they didn't fit and not everyone would have gotten them.

In the end, this was the final product.

Happy Halloween t' ye all and t' all a good night.

Don't ferget t' fave, comment or share. Every little bit helps this ol' seadog ^^

-Captain Chenbeard o' th' Black Fedora Pirates :iconwordofchen:

P.S. Manson's version of 'This is Halloween' can be found here: [link]

P.P.S. Sleep with th' lights on t'night, ye never know if one of them Japanese ghosts be hidin' somewhere close...or was that just somethin' rattlin' I heard :iconkayakoplz:

P.P.P.S. There is a slight difference in the ending, I thought the whee was too weak so it fades off after the last line and its just psychotic La La La's in an increasing volume. I wish DA allowed me to increase font-size, but it doesn't T^T

There are Things Beneath the GardenThere Are Things Beneath the Garden:

~

There are things beneath the garden,
Which you really shouldn't see.

There are things beneath the garden,
That don't belong to me.

There are things beneath the garden,
Gone rotten blue and black.

There are things beneath the garden,
In a dripping gunny sack...

~

There are flowers in the garden,
Which you really shouldn't pull.

There are flowers in the garden,
That are sitting on top of wool.

There are flowers in the garden,
With a really rotten scent.

There are flowers in the garden,
Above bodies burnt and bent...

~

I love this little garden,
It's a special place to me.

I love this
DishonouredDishonoured:

He stands before the adoring crowd,
Basking in their cheers and standing ovation.
But he has already been dishonoured -
By means of his perverse innovation.

For none could know of the dark secret;
About the art that he claims to be his own.
It is naught but an illusion, smoke and mirrors -
A theft for which he must atone...

But this disgusting creature, this worthless abhuman;
So desperate for the glory which he sees upon the stage!
Will quietly don the skin of another;
An urge he must assuage...

Biting his nails, a cracked smile upon his lips, he whispers:
"No one will know, no one will find it and I am great..."

Coward of a ManCoward of a Man:

You stand there whinin', cryin' crocodile tears and playin' victim.
Ye eyes demand pity, but yer lips are spewin' nothin' but lies.
Flowery speeches o' harmony and unification;
It's bollocks and snake-oil I say!

I ask ye, as someone who aspires t' be a leader:
What exactly are ye worth?
Who exactly are ya, and what in th' bloody hell makes you worth followin'?

Now I've watched ye fer a long time, and I've known ye fer even longer -
Ye always stand there beggin', askin' us fer help, askin' fer a handout;
But yer hands are clean, uncalloused, and completely free from sweat or toil.
Instead, ye make us promises; promi

Chapter 1: Blood is Beauty

Release One: Pages 1 - 3

THE COLD AIR in Baron Rorke's study did little to calm his nerves. He was expecting visitors this night and they were not the best of company. A shiver of dread ran down his spine and he spent most of the twilight hours staring out of a large window which stood behind his writing desk. It was amazing, he felt, how quickly a man could become attached to a life of luxury; only to be made painfully aware of how easy it was to lose it. War was always a frightening thing, even more so when one had the knowledge and sense to realise that it was no longer an exercise of glory, but a si

I think this is really great. At first when readig it I though you just changed a few of the lines around in the song, but then as reading on I noticed it was competly different and its very well writen. The way you discribed things and how it flowed was wonderful. Taking verses from the song was a nice idea as well, i really enjoyed reading it. I dont read much poety or rhymes but this was nice and id like to read much more of what you write, youre very good at it. Keep up the good wrok

In terms of vision, these lyrics has an epic scope within its genre, referencing many classic and iconic horrors and thrillers.
While not completely original, these lyrics do at least come from a comparatively underused source; and approaches the theme in a fairly unique way.
The lyrics are technically well written, the bones of the original source giving a solid base to build upon. The references are seamlessly incorporated into the song, giving a smooth finish.
The song benefits from the impact of the original, it strikes a chord with those that know earlier versions of the song, but it also carries the same impact, so those completely new to "This is Halloween" will find it a striking piece of lyricism.
In summary, not the most original work, but very well written nonetheless. Well worth reading.

:iconwordofchen:
WordOfChen Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2012  Professional Writer
Sorry, but tributes happen all the time, this is allowed under US law. Most individuals actually post actual covers in which case none of the lyrics are changed.

Full credit was given to the original song and no profit is being made, therefore this is not illegal. I suggest you learn a little more about copyright law before you start claiming that someone is not allowed to post something.

As an activist in the literature community, I am VERY familiar with most kinds of art theft and I can assure you, that never happens at Word of Chen. Inspirations, tributes and other matters have full credit given.
