"Pumpkin Head" as written by Jerry Caiafa and Daniel Rey....
Now this is a story of a good man named Ed
Left his son for a moment, returned found him dead

Recalls a tale as a boy that he was told
of an evil witch, so wicked, so old
Seeks a farmers advice he will not give
His oldest son knows just where the witch lived

He took Ed there but refused to go in
The boy knew what was about to begin
She has the power to avenge the dead
It cost your soul now come with me Ed

I'm gonna take you where your body will lie
I'm gonna take you there my friend
I'm gonna show you where your life will end
I'm gonna bring you here again

Dig up this grave, the old lady said
The thing we need lies here dormant sleeping with the dead
You understand what you ask of me
Not even death can set your soul free

I cast this curse and you will find
An evil darkness deep inside your vengeful mind
God damn you to hell, he could not restrain
He already has son the witch did explain

I'm gonna take you where your body will lie
I'm gonna take you there my friend
I'm gonna show you where your life will end
I'm gonna bring you here again

Pumpkin head
Pumpkin head

I'm gonna take you where your body will lie
I'm gonna take you there she said
I'm gonna show you where your life will end
This curse I cast you're Pumpkin Head!

    General CommentThis Song, Once again, is about a movie. The name of the movie is called "Pumpkin Head", made back in 1988.
    Ed is Played by Lance Henriksen, whom fiends his only son dead. The song tells about the movie. I really suggest this movie.

    General CommentNo one has mentioned that these are the lyrics to 'Hunting Humans', here's the pumpkin head lyrics -

    Now this is the story
    Of a good man named Ed
    Left his son for a moment
    Returned, found him dead

    Recalls a tale as a boy he was told
    Of an evil witch, so wicked, so old
    Seeks a farmers advice he will not give
    His oldest son knows just where the witch lived

    He took Ed there but refused to go in
    They boy knew what was about to begin
    She had the power to avenge the dead
    It cost your sould, now come with me Ed

    I'm gonna take you where your body will lie
    I'm gonna take you there, my friend
    I'm gonna show you where your life will end
    I'm gonna bring you here again

    Dig up your grave, the old lady said
    The thing we need lies here dormant, sleeping with the dead
    You understand what you ask of me
    Not even death can set your soul free

    I cast this curse and you will find
    An evil darkness deep inside your vengeful mind
    God damn you to hell, he could not restrain
    He already has son, the witch did explain

    I'm gonna take you where your body will lie
    I'm take you there, my friend
    I'm gonna show you where your life will end
    This curse I cast, you're Pumpkinhead!

    General CommentThe song... well, it has a great chorus, but the verse isn't that good, at least for me. Anyway, the album "Famous Monsters" is great.
    I DO NOT recomend the film.
