about

Mummula Columbus, Ohio

In Mummula Manor, when the clock strikes pyramidnight, the mighty Mummula rises from his tomb.

A team of his minions was assembled on Halloween 2012 and sent to Columbus, Ohio from their home of Sandsylvania in order to spread the curse of Mummula. Through their ca-coffin-ous blend of punk, garage, surf, and cartoons they'll show the world that it's hip to be scared.

Track Name: Mystery Mountain
School's out for Summer vacation now
Let's catch a ride to Mystery Mountain now
You never know what you're gonna find there!

Giant brains that live inside your dog
Scorpions as big as your neighbor's Ford
Come on let's go before our parents find out!

Before our parents find out! (x3)

I can't wait until we're older
Maybe we'll feel a little bolder
and we can stay out there past dark

There'll be ghouls round every turn
That'll make our stomachs churn
and scare us half to death!

School's out for Summer vacation now
Let's catch a ride to Mystery Mountain now
You never know what you're gonna find there!

Vampires from planets beyond the sun
Space men with giant craniums
No matter what we find we're takin’ them out!

We're gonna take 'em out! (x3)

(Bridge)

I can't wait until we're older
Maybe we'll feel a little bolder
and we can stay out there past dark

There'll be ghouls round every turn
That'll make our stomachs churn
and scare us half to death!

Schools out for Summer vacation now
Let's catch a ride to Mystery Mountain now (x4)
Track Name: Hex Marks the Spot
Voodoo dolls

Line the walls

My shack’s adorned with
 shrunken skulls
Watchin’ everything you do

My blackened heart beats just for you

Like it or not, hex marks the spot
Like it or not, hex marks the spot

Lecherous eyes
Behind the blinds
Shadows make a fine disguise
What’s it gonna’ take to see
That you and I are meant to be?

Like it or not, hex marks the spot
Like it or not, hex marks the spot

My only chance
For romance
Is if I put you 
in a trance
You don’t know that I exist
I hope my voodoo does the trick

Like it or not, hex marks the spot
Like it or not, hex marks the spot

Oh, well you can like it or you can not
But c’mon babe, give me a shot
Drink this potion from my pot
And then you’ll see hex marks the spot

Like it or not, hex marks the spot
Like it or not, hex marks the spot
Like it or not, hex marks the spot
Like it or not, hex marks the spot
Track Name: Percepto
When your spine starts to tingle and you can't sit still
(Parasite! Parasite!)
And when the fear starts to build and you feel a chill
(Parasite! Parasite!)
Well, you're born with the bug like everyone else,
you gotta scream bloody murder just to save yourself

Girl you better watch your back, or you'll have a heart attack!

You pull up to the drive-in, and you're freezin' up.
(Parasite! Parasite!)
Something's got ahold of you, you don't know what.
(Parasite! Parasite!)
Well, you howl out a little just to ease the pain,
or the Tingler's gonna' send you to an early grave.

Girl you better watch your back, or you'll have a heart attack!

(ohhhhhh) Let me hear you scream!
(ohhhhhh) Let me hear you scream!
(ohhhhhh) Let me hear you SCREAAAAAAAAAAAAAAM!
SCREAAAAAAAAAAAAAAM!

Doctor Ghost can't help you, he ain't got a clue
(Parasite! Parasite!)
Your priest can't save you he won't believe you
(Parasite! Parasite!)
Well, there's one sure way babe to save your head,
Catch a horror double feature or you'll wind up dead
Well, there's one sure way babe to save your head,
Catch a horror double feature or you'll wind up dead
Well, there's one sure way babe to save your head,
Catch a horror double feature or you'll wind up dead!

Girl you better watch your back or you'll have a heart attack!

Girl you better watch your baaaaaaaaaaack (x2)
Track Name: Let's Get Invisible
I met her at the magic shop
She was cute and we started to talk
We went out on our first date
And she made me levitate

Right before my very eyes
She started to dematerialize

(Let’s get invisible)
We’ll fade away, the world can wait another day
(Let’s get invisible)
We’ll disappear, and get the heck right outta’ here
(Let’s get invisible)
Another zone, a phantom home to call our own
(Let’s get invisible)
We’ll leave this place, somewhere outside of time and space

She has mastered the dark arts
And I hope we never part
She made me her special brew
And now I am see-through, too

We’re together, it’s apparent
Even though we’re both transparent

(Let’s get invisible)
We’ll fade away, the world can wait another day
(Let’s get invisible)
We’ll disappear, and get the heck right outta’ here
(Let’s get invisible)
Another zone, a phantom home to call our own
(Let’s get invisible)
We’ll leave this place, somewhere outside of time and space

Now I know it’s not just smoke and mirrors
Cuz when I’m with her, the world disappears
And I know it’s not some trick of light
When I think about that night

I don’t wanna’ find nothin’ to do
I just wanna’ disappear with you

(Let’s get invisible)
We’ll fade away, the world can wait another day
(Let’s get invisible)
We’ll disappear, and get the heck right outta’ here
(Let’s get invisible)
Another zone, a phantom home to call our own
(Let’s get invisible)
We’ll leave this place, somewhere outside of time and space

(Let’s get invisible)
Somewhere outside of time and space
(Let’s get invisible)
Somewhere outside of time and space
(Let’s get invisible)
Somewhere outside of time and space, baby, time and space
(Let’s get invisible)
Somewhere outside of time and space

Just me and you.
Track Name: My Baby's Turnin' into a Wolfman
I have a wolfman
She says I'm her only one

My baby's turnin' into a wolfman
Try to ignore it but I don't think that I can
My baby's turnin' into a wolfman nooooooow

My baby's turnin' into a wolfman
She's growin' hair in places I can't understand
My baby's turnin' into a wolfman nooooooow

Went for a walk just after dark
Off the trail down by the park
The moon was bright and the wolfsbane was in blooooooooom

Now the vet says she might have rabies
Oh god, what if she wants a baby?
Sometimes I don't know what to doooooooooo, 'cause

My baby's turnin' into a wolfman
Tried to accept it but I don't think that I can
My baby's turnin' into a wolfman nooooooow

My baby's turnin' into a wolfman
She's growin' hair in places I can't understand
My baby's turnin' into a wolfman nooooooow

I catch her lookin' at other guys
But when she gives me those puppy dog eyes
I just give up without a fiiiiiiight

She's sproutin' fangs and claws
It's against natures laws
The way I'm lovin' her toniiiiiiiiiight

My baby's turnin' into a wolfman
She snarls tenderly and says she won't eat my friends
My baby's turnin' into a wolfman nooooooooow

My baby's turnin' into a wolfman
I never thought I'd have a feral girlfriend
My baby's turnin' into a wolfman nooooooooow
Track Name: 7th Guest
Lights out, strike a match
The rain begins to pour
Lightning makes shadows dance
Across the bolted door

A letter from beyond
Read with spiraled eyes
A stranger cloaked in night
Offers you a ride!

Carriage left you at the gate
Read the invite: don't be late
Evenin' you won't soon forget
When you meet the SEVENTH GUEST

Six come and find their seats
Not one of them’s awake
Lights dim, the air is still
The table starts to shake

They all turn pale as bone
Except the evening's host
The drapes take shape and flight
It's dinner with a ghost!

Tinge of murder fills the halls
As crimson pours from crumbling' walls
Eerie pounding in your chest
Who invoked the SEVENTH GUEST

In haunted corridors
Reverberating cries
Entrance while shapeless phantoms
Beckon you outside

Stumble through the woods
Regretting that you ever even came
Cuz there you find six open graves
And one's marked with your name!

Chill of murder haunts the grounds
Amidst the bay of blood-breathed hounds
Another has been laid to rest
Victim of the SEVENTH GUEST

You can try to run
(But he will find you)
You can scream out for help
(But they can't hide you)
You might think that you're safe
(But look behind you)

No one escapes
He's sealed your fate
No one escapes
The seventh guest!
Track Name: Hang Ten
Come on baby, it's Halloween Night
And all the stars are shinin' so bright
So come with me to a swingin' party downtown

You don't need no invitation
Just a costume from the dollar bin
Watch your step now, as we head inside

Oh baby, I'm sorry
You had to come to this party
The doors are locked
And now your noose is taut

I must apologize for the mess here
I never quite cleaned up from last year
And my friends are still hangin' around

Won't you join us for just one dance
a little number called suffocation
It's pretty easy now, you'll pick it up in no time

Oh baby, I'm sorry
You had to come to this party
The doors are locked
And now your noose is taut

Now all the guests are gently swaying
To a tune the devil himself is playing
But the night is oh so young
C'mon baby, let's have some fun
Now you know you ain't never goin' home
You ain't never goin' home again!

Come on baby, it's Halloween Night
And all the stars are shinin' so bright
So come with me to a swingin' party downtown

You don't need no invitation
Just a costume from the dollar bin
Watch your step now, as we head inside
Track Name: Ed Woodn't (oh no, no, no)
Plans one through eight,
Not so great
Working hard
Shooting Late

Glenn or Glenda?
Not sure which
Man, that film was
Hard to pitch

But if you let that get you down,
(Ed Woodn't)
If you’re getting tightly-wound,
(Ed Woodn't)

These films are lacking
They need more
Enlist the aid of
My friend Tor

I need a star
They wanna’ go see
I think I’ll cast
Bela Lugosi

When you feel like givin up
(Ed Woodn't)
If you’re getting all hung up
(Ed Woodn't)

Spooky lady,
Talkin' femme fatale
Vampira won’t
bite and tell

My masterpiece,
So divine,
I watch Plan 9
All the time

When you wanna’ quit your dreams,
(Ed Woodn't)
If you think you’re gonna’ scream
(Ed Woodn't)

And you know, if nothin’s going right,
And the sets are crashing down
And everybody says
You can’t make it in this town
When you wear angora sweaters
and people say you shouldn’t
Don’t pay them any mind
Cuz you know Ed Woodn't.
