Iha: Halloween is not known as a time for giving and -
BC: Tell some jokes, James.
Iha: Halloween is not known for a time of giving and for giving and you will now forgive us for not having one of our guitars tuned properly. I'm sure Kiss has had tuning problems over the years, we've had ours, so we're gonna - we’re gonna rock you at any moment once we get the right bass.

mary had a little lamb
her face was white as snow
and everywhere that mary went
i was sure to go
now mary's got a little problem
'cause mary's not a stupid girl
mary's in some real deep shit
and this how her garden grows
and it began to snow inside her
and it began to snow inside her
and it began to snow inside her
she sees the razor and she cut it out
she took a razor and she cut it out
she took a razor and she cut it out
she took a razor and she cut it out

in the eyes of the jackal
into the eyes of the jackal
into the eyes of the jackal

mary dreams of a rearview mirror
the face of her mother's thoughts to appear
mary dreams of a rearview mirror

she's got the snow and sun
mary's not a stupid girl
she dreams of the snow and sun
