I always saw it as more Lovecraftian, kind of like the tentacle-thing in the Greg Kihn Band's "Jeopardy" video. I have no idea what Th'Iggles had in mind for the meaning, really.

As for creepy songs, there were quite a few that got Doctor Demento play back in the 80s/90s...Harry Chapin had a song about a tractor-trailer of bananas that crashed horrifically ("30,000 Pounds Of Bananas"?) and of course, that celebration of cannibalism, "Timothy".
