A brand-new song for a brand-new album, coming this spring. Hopefully.


Candy corn fills the space above my fireplace
Orange, white, and yellow hues seep through the glass
Maybe you can have a few when you come home this afternoon
Before the light drains from the fading autumn sky

Windows fogging over as the rain pounds up above
Darkness settles in the rooms that we're neglectful of

Candy corn, when I'm left alone I tend to hide
The doors are locked, the curtains tied, the windows shut
Days and days without you, time I'd waste on wasting away
I'm isolated and I need your help to break me out

Wrapped between the blankets, holding on to keep us warm
Overhead we hear the crack of thunder in the storm

Candy corn, there's a time of day when there's no sun
The candles flicker in the moonlight
Everything melts around me; walls turn into dripping wax
Please don't wake me 'til the morning

Small ghost, it's time to wake because the moon is overhead
Small ghost, don't ignore me; I know you heard what I said
Small ghost

Climb out from the covers, dress yourself, don't make a sound
Only one night of the year, the monsters are around
Although the costumes of the children try to scare them away
They need a little helping hand, and that's why you're here to save the day

Small ghost, do you remember all the days when we were young?
Small ghost, there isn't time for me to tell you 'bout the sun
Small ghost, you're protector of the Earth on Halloween
I know that you're scared but you are what the people need
Small ghost

Learn to recognise the monsters even in the dark
They have made a hive of sorts at the south of Monroe Park
Make sure that your sword is sharpened, glinting metal blade
Someday many years from now, the people all will say

Small ghost, can you whisper all your secrets in my ear?
Small ghost, we're surrounded by haunts & spooks; nothing to fear!
Small ghost, don't forget to bring the flashlight from the wall
I hope that you know I love you even though you're small
Small ghost
Small ghost
