"Creepy Green Light" as written by and Peter Thomas Steele....
This Halloween
So unlike any other
Her final words
Don't be afraid
Of the green light
Of the green light (green light)

On muddy ground
I'm lying drunk on her grave
Where I must wait
Until she wakes
The soil splits
Greenwood's ground will quake beneath me
And so shall take
Into the earth
To the green light
To the green light

The autumn air
Thickly fills my lungs so sweetly
Reminds me of her smoky breath
With wine and this
Bouquet of maple
And oak leaves
In death or life
We'll always be

I find myself drawn to her shadow domain

This moonlit night
Late October's swirling fog gloom
And as promised
My love did rise
From the green light

    General CommentAll I know is that this song is about the green light. (their symbol). So it could be about one of his loved ones dying and death must be the creepy green light.

    General CommentObviously, an intro with a praise for her dead bride. Why a green light? On the celtic past, the survivors from battles who die for seconds, talked about follow a green light to get back to life, then to die...a whit light.

    General CommentThis song is clearly about the return of the dead.

    "This halloween
    So unlike any other"

    Halloween is thought to be a time when the veil between the world of the living and the world of the dead is thinnest, allowing spirits to enter this world. This halloween is the first one after the death of his love. Or it is the first one after he learned that death isn't the end.

    "Her final words
    Don't be afraid
    Of the green light
    Of the green light
    Green light"

    His love's final words, as she lay dying seeing what he could not, that she would be allowed to return. The green light is a creepier version of what she was seeing as she went "to the light" When she returns, the light, instead of being holy and pure white, is a more sinister green.

    "On muddy ground
    I'm lying drunk on her grave
    Where i must wait
    Until she wakes"

    On halloween, Peter's torched and nearly unconcious on her grave. Its been raining. he waits.

    "The soil splits
    Greenwood's ground will quake beneath me
    And so shall take into the earth
    To the green light
    To the green light"

    The beginning of his love's return. Her grave splits open and the earth begins to shake. We also see a foreshadowing of what the true "return" is all about. The earth itself (or more correctly Peter's world) is being drawn into the light.

    "The autumn air
    Thickly fills my lungs so sweetly
    Reminds me of her smoky breath
    With wine and this bouquet of maple and oak leaves
    In death or life we'll always be"

    The autumn air, is thick with the smells of autumn (in most places), decaying leaves, smoke, and moisture. This reminds him further of her. The wine itself tastes like autumn. (Some wines in fact to have a very "oakey" taste. ) Pete affirms that he wants to be with her forever.

    "I find myself drawn to her shadow domain
    I find myself drawn to her shadow domain
    I find myself drawn to her shadow domain"

    Pete is finding himself wanting to leave this life to be with her.

    "This moonlit night
    Late october's swirling fog gloom
    And as promised my love did rise
    From the green light
    From the green light
    Green light

    I find myself drawn to her shadow domain
    I find myself drawn to her shadow domain I find myself drawn to her shadow domain"

    His dead love arose from her grave, to take Pete back to the world of the dead with her. This is probably Pete's last sight as he lay dying in the cemetary, either poisoned by the amount of alcohol he's had or dead by his own hand directly.

    General CommentThis song was utilised in Vampire Bloodlines(videogame from troika), for me seem a human waiting a gangrel Domitor(his bride?) arise from earth. Try take a look on world of darkness background.Autumn is perfect to describe vampiric condition of undead,and fist edition of Masquerade used to be green marble cover. So, under a creepy green light. But is only my theory.
