Hallow It All

Tonight we welcome frightful dark
We relish our own fear
We fear that life is all too drab
So let the dead appear

Yet what are we but dead to be
Will we be braver then
Or hope to hide a quaking heart
Behind a skeleton?

We hallow Halloween with fear
For what we must become
But waking dawn will soon reveal
That trick and treat are one

(Oh, one other thing)
