Clearly a homage to The Evil Dead, the best children's film ever made. The screaming still shits me up to this day.


I hide behind the cloak of night
'Neath the leaves, away from sight
Cursed by the demon's spell
Dooming us to eternal hell

The words are read, now we are free
The evil dead set unto thee
Wracked by the need to feed
For your crimes now you will bleed

Beg and plead, you cannot yield
No escape, your fate is sealed
Not a man who could be repelled,
Your killer is us, the woods themselves

Through the trees, you try to run
Praying for the rising sun
But it's witching hour, you're out of luck
Dead by dawn, you are fucked

Snared by bracken, you're taken down
Into the mud, your body is ground
Quickly turn from brown to red
As the savage grove severs your head

Stabbed and burned and limbs removed
I should be dead but still I move
Buried alive in the hallowed soil
But it's not over, I still recoil

My shallow grave fails to keep me in
I soon return, you cannot win
For all my wounds I'm scarcely maimed
You scream and flee, and I chase again

You started this with an evil tome
And now it ends as we chew your bones
Lie in wait for a thousand years
For our next meal to wander near
