looks like I'm back again, and I'm feeling older
the leaves are cackling, so I think it's getting colder
my keys are lonely; just car, front door and spare
tonight my pillow is a crate of silverware
hit the corner for a box of mac and cheese
this neighborhood doesn't need a guy like me
thank the cashier, try to wear a normal face
like I do this without thinking every day
No one I know has got my number
all the regulars have found a different crowd
seems like I'm in love with starting over
and this time of year is great for breaking down

Halloween, candles watch the sidewalk
Halloween, a sweaty plastic mask
Halloween, a few good kinds of candy
Halloween, nobody else knows who I am

The little zombies rode home in minivans
Their chaperones are making weekend plans
I'm in the kitchen, left my porch light off
Eating Kit-Kats, writing down my stupid thoughts
the neighbor's house is standing empty
no way to find out where they went
to my disgust each day I feel a little better
now that I can trick-or-treat again

just let me say the candy's good as I remember it
sadly, I know eventually I will get used to it

This jawbreaker is easier to bite now
The pumpkin skulls are crumbling away
this is the street I've always lived on
and I keep taking off costumes every day

Combine a bluesy, coffee-drinking piano roller and a straightedge synthesizer geek with a Doctor Who penchant and you get the White Tornado - a mean power-piano-trio-backed songwriter who writes songs about life, love, science, and robots.
