about

A mad scientist was working in the lab late one night and put a dreadful serum he created into the drinks of 4 unsuspecting and weary travelers who's car broke down on the way to a Misfits show. They all drank the serum and quickly went into a catatonic state. When they awoke, they began playing songs and the Mad Scientist, who happened to have state of the art recording equipment, recorded it. So, this is what came from that fateful, stormy night as they recorded in the damp, dark Castle East. No one knows where they are, who they are, or where they are going to. So, lock the doors, lock the windows, it won't be pretty... when the blood drips, and the banshees cry, and the Pink Skulls Mega Monster Madness comes to your city.

Track Name: My Lil Grave Shift Baby
V01 –
Out by the beach, there sits that shopping mall
Where my girl works a shoe store’s hollow halls,
& she sucks customers in like moths to light.
When she measures my feet, my pants get tight.

C01 –
She’s not like other girls, her skin’s translucent white.
I wish she’d bite my neck, but she’s just too polite.
My little graveshift baby only works at night
& then she’s gone.
Oh-whoa-whoa.

TA –
She’s only got two vices:
Fresh blood & bargain prices.
Two things that get her going:
High heels & hemoglobin.

V02 –
& when she gets off work, she’ll grab a bite
& then go surf the breaks after midnight.
She quasimodos off ‘em like she’s a meteorite,
Her little two-piece shimmering in moonlight.

C02 –
She’s not like other girls, her skin’s translucent white.
I wish she’d bite my neck, but she’s just too polite.
My little graveshift baby only surfs at night
& then she’s gone.
Oh-whoa-whoa.
B –
B! – Be my Mata Hari.
O! – Oh no, you won’t be sorry,
O! – Over Doc Caligari
T! – & TV Surf Safari.
B! – Be my Mina Harker.
A! – Awake you inner shark, girl,
R! – Right on my jugular here.
N! – Nobody else will do, dear,

Build –
‘Cause my blood jumps
When you’re near!

C03 –
My little graveshift baby only works at night
& then she’s gone.
Oh-whoa-whoa.
My little graveshift baby only surfs at night
& then she’s gone.
Oh-whoa-whoa.
My little graveshift baby‘s watching monster flicks with me
‘Till dawn.
Oh-whoa-whoa.

Coda –
Don’t worry, baby, my shades are drawn . . .
Track Name: Hey Serena
V01 –
Walking in the shadows,
Creeping down the stairs
Going where nobody knows,
Going where nobody cares.
Spare parts from the graveyards,
Dead bodies everywhere,
Whatever it takes to get you
From here to there.

VB01 –
Now there’s a price to pay
& there will come a day
The dead things will rise
& walk by your side.

C01 –
Hey Serena,
Are you OK?
Did you kill them all?
All the blood & gore & more.
Hey Serena,
There’s a place for
Things like you,
& it's cold & damp & gray.

V02 –
The last time that I saw you,
You were hiding in the dark,
& in a haunted haze,
I watched you fall apart.
Whatever it takes to get you
From here to there.

VB02 –
Now there’s a price to pay
& there will come a day
The dead things will rise
& walk by your side.

C02 –
Hey Serena,
Are you OK?
Did you kill them all?
All the blood & gore & more.
Hey Serena,
There’s a place for
Things like you,
& it's cold & damp & gray.

B? –
Going where nobody knows,
Going where nobody cares.
Spare parts
& graveyards.
Someday
There’s a price
To pay.

C03 –
Hey Serena,
Are you OK?
Did you kill them all?
All the blood & gore & more.
Hey Serena,
There’s a place for
Things like you,
& it's cold & damp & gray.
Track Name: Lucifer In A Lampshade
V01 –
This neighborhood’s really gone to hell since the zombies started moving in.
This used to be a decent place to drink ‘till these vampire skanks turned all my friends,
Coming out of that backroom all looking weird.
Nobody sees it, or that the water outside’s still rising.
They just keep on dancing like Peggy Lee or their pathetic store-bought gris-gris will save them.
They really think their glorified hot sauce will ward off that silver-tongued schemer
At the end of the bar with the lime-green Maori mug shooting back
Peach flambés without so much as a singed eyebrow? Nooooo!
Like that lampshade on his head makes him all incognito.
So why’d he have to come here?
Why not Houston?
Guess he can’t do Phoenix ‘cause they got no souls to lose.

V02 –
You know the Hotel LaFong?
With the rotating lobby bar?
Yeah, last night it just flipped on all the sudden.
It’s still out there spinning like gangbusters,
Lit up like a skull candelabra on Day Of The Dead.
But that block’s got no power; how can that be?
& over here’s the opposite problem: the juke’s playing everything a 3rd too fast,
& someone set Jurgen’s freshly-severed head on top it,
Safely-stowed above the AMI logo,
But no one’s claimed credit.
Poor bastard’s stuck forever with his tongue out,
Rictus frozen in a raspberry,
John The Baptist-by-way-of-Jayne Mansfield pose.

V03 –
I look up from the tapeworm wriggling at the bottom of my tequila glass.
Don’t know how much time’s passed,
Long enough I’m seeing pufferfish float by my head,
They’re overturning the hanging paper lanterns & tiki torches,
Turning them into sunbursts
Casting creepy yellow half-moon shadows off spittoons.
The outside’s like a fishbowl but the inside’s a tinderbox,
& there’s no more music ‘cause the jukebox has been melting,
Just the smoke detectors writhing in rhythmic pain.
& the girls are still swinging those getaway stems of theirs
Squeezed tight into snow-colored stockings shimmying & grinding
While the flames gobble them up a couple at a time.
The bar bottles start popping like giving a signal for smoke to come out of the floorboards,
I can’t see shit except Satan’s got Carly the cocktail waitress in a trance
With a cottonmouth tongue flicking in her ear.
I know her family, & she’s probably the only one here ‘sides me
Who ain’t been turned into a ghoul!
Oh, that tears it, goddamn it!
Get away from her you, you bastard!
You wanna destroy everything pure in the world?!
Careful, that’s a vintage fucking Majestic Z lamp, scumbag!
Leave my friends alone!
Take your vampire pussy posse & go back to Hell!
Track Name: Just Call Me Frank
Verse 1
Frankly, I don't have a problem
Honestly, the issue's you
You got so hung up
When you woke up

PC
I wanna be your friend
I wanna hold your hand
Carress your long black hair
Instead you stopped and stared

Chorus
Just call me Frank
I'm OK with nicknames
My father made me
He's the one to blame

Verse 2
I'm tall, but don't let that scare you
It's just, my platform shoes
Please put aside
I'm electrified

PC
I wanna slow dance
I wanna deep romance
We're on the same team
So why did you scream

Chorus
Just call me Frank
I'm OK with nicknames
My father made me
He's the one to blame

Bridge
you blew… the fuses on my neck
( I ) can't keep… my technology in check


Verse 3
Frankly, I don't see a problem
Honestly, this issue's new
I tried to change
But I still look strange

PC
I wanna be your friend
I wanna hold your hand
I wanna slow dance
I wanna deep romance

Chorus
Just call me Frank
I'm OK with nicknames
My father made me
He's the one to blame

Build
connect the dots… you give me megawatts
(x3)


Chorus
Just call me Frank
I'm OK with nicknames
My father made me
He's the one to blame

Frankenstein's my full name
Track Name: Vampire Girl
V01 –
It's frozen out here
Where we stay.
You call it a home
But you know it's a grave.

V02 –
The glamorous dead
Are coming home.
We decay together
Vaporize when were alone.

Coda –
Vampire Girl
Vampire Girl
Etc.
Track Name: Zombie Kiss
V01 –
Sometimes you seem undead
With your needle & thread
Sometimes the dead can rise
& take over your head.

VB01 –
I'm so scared,
Because I swear
I just heard your creature call
From outta the wall,
I feel it crawl.

C01 –
Just sew your lips real tight
& give your zombie kiss tonight.
I look into your dead eyes
Until the vampires cry
Tonight.

VB02 –
I'm so scared,
Because I swear
I just heard your creature squall
& fly over the wall,
I’m feeling small.

C02 –
Just sew your lips real tight
& give your zombie kiss tonight.
I look into your dead eyes
Until the vampires cry
Tonight.

VB03 –
I'm so scared,
Because I swear
I just heard your creature call
From outta the wall,
I feel it crawl.

V02 [Spoken] –
Oh my, darling, I think something is wrong . . . Are you OK? Your blank stare . . . Your skin’s so fair . . Hanging out late . . . By the cemetery gates . . . How long have you been dead?

C03 –
Just sew your lips real tight
& give your zombie kiss tonight.
I look into your dead eyes
Until the vampires cry
Tonight.
Track Name: unDead Girl
V01 –
You’re just a descendent of the glorious dead,
Out of your coffin & out of your head.
You’re just an Undead Girl
In your undead world.

C01 –
Un-
Dead
Girl.

V02 –
I love the crooked little way you walk,
I love the mumbled little way you talk.
The fast girls go too slow
When dead girls don’t say no.

C02 –
Un-
Dead
Girl.

B [C-G-A-D Section] –
Undead Girl,
You stole my heart.
Now you’re eating me
Part by part.

You’re a descendent of old horror flicks
Out of your coffin & onto my d-d-d-
Dead Girl
In your undead world.

Dead
Girl.

Undead Girl.
Track Name: Burned At The Stake
V01 –
The spell is cast, the chants begin
Puritans follow you & then
Evil's everywhere everyday
But you’re so far away.

VB01 –
It's so fake here,
& the witching hour is near
Is your curse sincere?

V02 –
One last kiss today
& we’ll be burned at the stake.
So give a toast to all the lies
& one hooray for last goodbyes.

VB02 –
It's dead as a Saturday night
In a cemetery’s moonlight.

C01 –
Come out tonight
So we can rule the world
We’ll be alone this time.
Meba, there’s a light,
Where we can never die.
Curse it now
& let the evil sink into the ground.
My experimental creature.

B –
Don't go,
Stay.
Your coven’s so far away
Just let the banshees cry.

C02 –
Tonight, tonight,
Oh, we can rule the world
We’ll be alone this time.
Meba, there’s a light,
Where we can never die.
We’ll be alone tonight.
Tonight, tonight
We can rule the world
We’ll be alone tonight.


11 – She's Dead
(06-25-2010)

V01 –
It was goodbye, but I saw her again
On the other side of the world
No joy, no sorrow,
Nothing left inside this girl

VB01 –
Dear undead,
I remember what you said,
About all of the tomorrows

C01 –
She's dead & it's killing me-everyday
She's dead & it's hard to see her this way

V02 –
Goodbye, but I'll be with you
& hold you again
Forever is a long time
To feel nothing, so my love 'till then . . .

VB02 –

Track Name: On Halloween
V01 –
It’s getting cold
& the leaves are dead
The moon is full
& the victims are bled.

VB01 –
& when the banshee calls
In the darkest night
You can hear the screams
It happens all the time

C01 –
On Halloween
On Halloween

V02 –
Your coffin’s cold
In the cemetery vault
You kill almost every night
But it’s not really your fault

VB02 –
& when the rain comes down
& thunders in the sky
The laboratory looks just right
& dead things come alive

C02 –
On Halloween
On Halloween
On Halloween
On Halloween
Track Name: Will You Be My Vampire Bride?
V01 –
Girl put your hand on my nose
& feel for yourself how bad it’s froze;
I can’t believe it gets this cold.
While I know that you call it home,
To me they’re drafty catacombs.
But at least I still got the warmth inside
From when you said you’d be my vampire bride.

V02 –
This town is just like where we came,
The spirits all sleepwalk the same,
These anguished ones who pace in shame.
With steamshovelfuls of secrets
Or those pissed off from violent deaths.
Though once you used to walk that restless night,
Now your heart rests with me, my vampire bride.

V03 –
This morning while I watched you sleep,
I thought of an Egyptian queen
& those mummified figurines
That servants placed inside a tomb
Around their goddess in the gloom
To keep her company as she vaporized
In digs more posh than this, my vampire bride.

V04 –
They called those wee things “shawabtis”
& pinned a note onto their sleeves
That read, “If by chance, the deceased
Is called upon to do a task
In the Afterlife, I’ve got his back.”
I like to think when I’m here by your side
I’m doing that same job, my vampire bride.

Coda –
I let my old dreams go for good,
I killed those lies right where they stood
& gave the slip to my old life
The day that you became my wife.
Now wherever you go’s my home too _____
I’ll brave the cold to be with you,
Here’s one more blanket for your feet,
I’ve barred the door & pulled the sheets
So the sun won’t touch your lovely skin,
I’ll guard the door ‘till night begins.
I’ll never lose this warmth inside
From that day you said “Yes” when I
Asked, “Will you be my vampire bride?”
