trick or treat, trick or treat
you tricked me
i waited on the steps, carved pumpkin on my head
basket in my hands
asking for love 
only for you to be a ghost

you could have been anything 
but you chose to be a monster
i was the dog at your door
if this is what i fell for

i’m scared of hallow’s eve!
i’m scared, i’m scared.
i don’t wanna be burned by the torch of your 
if i eat til i’m numb or give you a gun
will i die on hallow’s eve?
