"Halloween in Heaven" is a track of the Type O Negative album Dead Again, released in 2007. It is punky resembling Carnivore but it resembles "Kill All the White People" or "We Hate Everyone" from Bloody Kisses in aggression. The song features the female backing vocals of Tara Van Flower from goth band Lycia. The lyrics was written about dead musicians such as Pete's close friend Dimebag Darrell, Jimi Hendrix, John Lennon, and Jim Morrison.
The dead they got that morbid beat it goes deo deo They dance upon decaying feet with their black toes oh no Heaven, Limbo and Hell - purgatory oh well oh well Halloween in Heaven - it's Christmas in Hell Halloween in Heaven oh well oh well The devil stole a yule tree decorated with souls Jesus trick or treating as him below Heaven, Limbo and Hell - purgatory oh well oh well Halloween in Heaven - it's Christmas in Hell Halloween in Heaven oh well oh well Bonham on drums, Entwistle on bass as guest morticians Bon Scott on vox, Rhoads just for kicks, on guitar Hendrix Lennon sits in with his friend George but where is Morrison? Of course I cried when I heard they'd died and took a part of me Same time gave from beyond the grave became what was to be Elvis ain't dead so he isn't here party never ends Demon roadies, angel groupies, suicide losers If only I'd known how cool death is I'd have killed myself sooner Of harps and choirs, pumpkin pine pyres, flames of red and green Orange and black, years take me back - Christmas or Halloween Halloween in Heaven - it's Christmas in Hell Halloween in Heaven oh well oh well
