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
 
 
Baby
 
 
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
 
I find myself drawn to her shadow domain
 
I find myself drawn to her shadow domain
 
Ah
 
 
This moonlit night
 
Late october's swirling fog gloom
 
And as promised my love did rise
 
From the green light
 
From the green light

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

"Creepy Green Light" is a song by Type O Negative, included on the fifth album World Coming Down, released in 1999. This song was formerly titled "Spooky Green Light" before it was renamed while the album was in production. The choruses resemble the typical style of Alice in Chains. It is about a spouse rising from the grave on Halloween night.

This song is split into three cantos—the first and third cantos are titled "Creepy Green Light", and the one in the middle is titled "Frightening Black Night". The middle is instrumental featuring an organ followed by doom metal riff over it, so all the lyrics are sung during the first and third cantos.

Lyrics Edit

Canto I: Creepy Green Light
This Halloween
So unlike any other
Her final words
Don't be afraid
Of the green light
Of the green light
Green light

Baby

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

Baby

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

Canto II: Frightening Black Night
[Instrumental]

Canto III: Creepy Green Light (revisited)
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

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

Quiet, quiet, quiet
