Late at night, you hear some strange noise wake you
"Wonder what it is" you think silently
Tiptoe slow so you don't draw attention
Your heart begins racing as it draws near
Halls start to seem like a giant maze
Which way shall I go? (way should I go?)
PLEASE TELL ME
Cackles are heard, they drive you insane
You shout and scream out but nobody bothers to listen
"Why so scared my dear? I'm here to protect you... Don't you fret..."
Why does this feel weird? It's so soothing, but then... It doesn't feel right...
Restless fits keep you wide awake in bed
"How come I can't sleep?" You whisper softly
Glancing at your window a shadow stalks watching over you, feeling safe and sound
Dizzy, tired, your senses are weak
"I can't concentrate, I can't focus... Where am I?"
Crawling, wrapping around your body
The lights flicker out and you black out to manic laughter
"Why so weary dear? The party is so near... Won't you join us?"
Fooled, you join the dance; losing it to the beat
Long ago, legend told of a monster enchanting people and then killing them
"However, that is just an urban myth"
That is what they say before they are killed
Pounding louder, the music turns foul
All sense has been lost while crooked faces laugh out
"Faster, faster!" They order at you
"I can't do this no more, I fear I'm pushing on daisies..."
"Stop this all at once... What's happening to me? Why... Can't I see?"
Chains or cords what's this?
Guess I'm part of the "game"
Won't you join us?
