I'm an undertaker
I'm a ghost in the night
I'm a coffin shaker
This graveyard site is mine

Take a look at the sky
See that evil eye
Tonight the moon is cold as ice
Oh, yeah, cold as ice, oh, yeah

There's a black horse waiting
Will he be on time?
The graveyard's shaking
Should I turn my eyes and walk away

Take a look at the sky
See that evil eye
Tonight the headless rider rides
Midnight

Let the church bell ring
It's midnight, All Hallow's Eve
It's midnight, All Hallow's Eve
I see him rising from his grave
I see him rising from his grave

On All Hallow's Eve
Never to forget
He rides the open field
In search of his head

My God, he's so grotesque
Should I stay?
My God, a scythe in his hand
No way

He's coming, I'm running
He's coming, I'm running
Deep inside I know I'm the one
He's coming, I'm running
Deep inside I know this is wrong
Help me, I'm falling down

I'm falling down
I'm looking up
I'm in a grave

In this hollow grave
I can smell that he's near
Will I ever never make it?
Will I shed a tear?

Oh, it's strange
How every thing's changing
Now my life is fading away

In this hollow grave
I see a bony hand
Don't you ever never take it
It's the key to his land

Oh, it's strange
How every thing's changing
Now my life is fading away

Oh, it's strange
How every thing's changing
Now my life is fading away

No

The mind in my headless body
Seems to be chained to the inside
I cannot move towards the light

And as he rides away
Leaving me with this curse
I hear his laughter in the distance

Actually it's my laughter
He stole my head
Does this mean I'll be the one next year?
