Lyrics:

With his red eyes aglow and his white wings spread awide

You are helpless below, your looking up to the night

Is he Chief Cornstalk's ghost? Or an Alien?

On the shores of the Ohio here in West Virginia



In Point Pleasant we live beneath the shadow, our days are numbered one and all

There's no rest here between the mountains and metal, we know he's supernatural



Watch out! The Mothman will steal you away!

Watch out! Or maybe he'll save the day, Yeah

Watch out! Is he friend or foe?! Who knows

Watch out! We just don't know



Don't go to lover's lane, don't ignore the buzz on the television

Look for that flying man, as he sends premonitions

'Cause he lived near the Kanawha, or in the plant for munitions

Did he destroy The Silver Bridge or save the citizens?



In Point Pleasant we live beneath the shadow, our days are numbered one and all

There's no rest here between the mountains and metal, we know he's supernatural



Watch out! The Mothman will steal you away!

Watch out! Or maybe he'll save the day, Yeah

Watch out! Is he friend or foe?! Who knows

Watch out! We just don't know

Lyrics:

There I was, walking along the park

It was a chilling November night

when I perceived a sudden movement in the Dark

Then at first, all I saw were these two Sinister red eyes

It was huge - Not Animal - Not Human - Something else


I kept looking at it, petrified

Evil Dark shape

Spreads its black Wings to me!


In the Night!

Omen of misfortune

In the Night!

Something dreadful will come to Pass

In the Night!

An Entity in Black shape

In the Night!

Evil Creature of future sight


It put a vision inside my mind.

It was a nightmare for all mankind

Death and disease will be the rule for a hundred years

Then I saw a glimpse of hope

There's no pain that we feel in vain

From the border of extinction mankind will prevail.

I kept looking at it, petrified

Evil Dark shape

Spreads its black Wings to me!


In the Night!

Omen of misfortune

In the Night!

Something dreadful will come to Pass

In the Night!

An Entity in Black shape

In the Night!


Evil Creature of future sight

Lyrics:

If you go to Point Pleasant

You better just beware

Down by the Igloos

You can hear them everywhere


They're running into the night

But you can't see a thing

You almost die of fright

When you hear the sound of their wings


People tell me some stories

About lights in the sky

An MIB knocks on your door

and tells you, you might die


What you gonna' do now?

Indrid Colds an alien

Keel go get your flashlight

and chase down the Mothman


The rumors say they have red eyes

They reflect with the light

Make your hair stand on end

In the chill of the night


They drive around in their black cars

It's not in your mind

They come from another dimension

They're not even from our time


What you gonna' do now?

Indrid Colds an alien

Keel go get your flashlight

and chase down the Mothman


Bandit disappeared by the barn

Indrid played his games

Mary wrote her stories

and Linda almost went insane


Forty six people were lost

on the bridge that night

The MIBs

and the UFOs

and the Mothman vanished from sight


What you gonna' do now?

Indrid Colds an alien

Keel go get your flashlight

and chase down the Mothman


What you gonna' do now?

Indrid Colds an alien

Keel go get your flashlight

and chase down the Mothman

The description read: "A tribute to the 46 lives lost on the Silver Bridge in Point Pleasant, WV on December 15th 1967".

Lyrics:

On a cold December night in 1967

The Silver Bridge collapsed and fell into the Ohio River

Silver Bridge they say, seemed to move and sway

and on that night the traffic light wasn't working


Silver Bridge has fallen down

Christmas presents floating all around

Glowing lights from down below where the bridge once did cross

Forty six people now are lost


Forty six


People from Point Pleasant and others from around

Ran from the stores down to the bridge to see what made that sound

From the darkness of sixth street and to the other side

They witnessed such a tragedy, sent chills right down their spine


Point Pleasant and her sister towns endured a tragic loss

but fifty years since that day has come at such a cost

They say that times an eternity and time can heal all wounds

Forty six who have gone before were taken much too soon


On a cold December night in 1967

The Silver Bridge collapsed and fell into the Ohio River

The old suspension bridge, no longer in her prime

Did her job nearly forty years, had just run out of time


Silver Bridge has fallen down

Christmas presents floating all around

Glowing lights from down below where the bridge once did cross

Forty six people now are lost


Forty six

Mothman Blues

Mothman Blues is a blues song released in 2019 by Dan Cunningham.

I saw the Mothman 
and I know you saw him too

I saw the Mothman 
and I know you saw him too

No one will believe us, 
what are we gonna do? 



Now way out in the quarry,
I saw a fearsome beast

Way out in the quarry,
I saw a fearsome beast

He gave me the evil eye
then he flew off, flew off to east



They say that it's an omen
of evil things to come

Yes they saw that it's an omen
of evil things to come

I know he's bringing bad news
and I don't know where it's from



Now bobby's had some hard luck
He could really use the dough

My buddy bobby's had some hard luck
He could really use the dough

He wants to catch that old Mothman
and sell tickets for the show



Now they say it aint no monster,
it's just a big old crane

They say it aint no monster,
it's just a big old crane

Don't pay them no attention,
they got big bird on the brain


I saw the Mothman,
I saw the Mothman

I saw the Mothman 
and I know you saw him too
