MOONLIGHT CANTATA
(Lyrics by Brendan McAndrew)

The clock strikes thirteen in the tower of my heart
And the bats in the belfry awake with a start
As they fly through the sky the cloaks of their wings
Silhouette in the light of the moon
Silhouette in the light of the moon

The undead are waking in the graveyard of my soul
Their clothes are all tattered and their bodies full of holes
But they’ll try to pretend they are living again
As they dance to the light of the moon
As they dance to the light of the moon

Why did you leave me this way
Baby you’ve taken my day away
And left me only with the night
And left me so lonely

The mad, mad professor in the lab of my mind
Has decided to tamper with the fate of humankind
Thinks he’s conquering death with a monster’s first breath
As it’s born by the light of the moon
As it’s born by the light of the moon

Did the vampires suck all the love out of you
Did the werewolves drain all your sympathy too
Did you find someone new in your witchdoctor’s brew
As I shiver by the light of the moon
As I shiver by the light of the moon

Why did you leave me this way
Baby you’ve taken my day away
And left me only with the night
And left me so lonely
