Tonight is the night when the dead shall stalk our world.

Tonight is the night

The long-time sleeping stir from their pits

Spirits gather en masse, awaiting the gate to open

Anxious and excited, the dead are to return home.

Anxious and frightened, the living wish to be left alone.

There’s no knowing what will happen

This night is a sacred night

For the spirits’ vigour restores, their souls awaken from death

The dead walk amongst the living

Wraiths unseen.

Ghouls of haunting dreams.

Not all are evil; some have kept their humanity

Some you will not see

But make no mistake; they stalk our world

For ours was once theirs and shall be their haunting grounds forever more
