While you wait, there's always something looming low
Will it show, your heart is thumping?
Halloween without a pumpkin, Halloween
Breeding in the stream, the programmes come the same
Why not the dream?
Can I keep on running?
Can I keep on running?

While you watch there's always something taking sides
Find a clue in any language
Halloween without a pumpkin, Halloween
Sleeping still they look no meaner than their eyes
Trick or treat or lies
Can I keep on running?
Can I keep on running?

It's only surface tension but break it and we sink
Reach out for the master's mask
The wound is deeper than you think
It's only surface tension but break it and we sink
Reach out for the master's mask
The wound is deeper than you think

While you sleep there could be something closing in
You don't know, could this be London
Halloween without a pumpkin, Halloween
Breathing on the phone, the city creaks alone
They know you're home
Can I keep on running?
Can I keep on running?

It's only surface tension but break it and we sink
Reach out for the master's mask
The wound is deeper than you think
It's only surface tension but break it and we sink
Reach out for the master's mask
The wound is deeper than you think
It's only surface tension but break it and we sink
Reach out for the master's mask
The wound is deeper than you think
It's only surface tension but break it and we sink
Reach out for the master's mask
The wound is deeper than you think
