lyrics

Creeping, crawling
Across the floorboards, nails tearing up hard wood
Drooling, growling
Premonitions – hear them hissing in the darkness

A great fire!
Pestilence!
Throughout the valley
Hear the screams of your children
Are you prepared
To face the consequences
Of your ambivalence
You’ll never see this coming down

Hush now, son
We’ll shield you from
All you fear
And what you fear is near

Tossing, turning
Atop the mattress, under a lone sheet
The covers requisitioned
At the request of my guardians

They say monsters
Oh those scary monsters under your bed
Hear them chattering
Keep you up all through the night
They got razor-sharp claws to rip off your flesh
Acid spit to melt your muscles
Tusk-like teeth to gnash your bones
And wait till you see how big their dicks are

Hush now, son
We’ll shield you from
All you fear
And what you fear is near
Sure, there’s a price
And it may seem steep
But keep in mind
Where you’d be without

A great fire!
Pestilence!
Throughout the valley
Hear the screams of your children
Are you prepared
To face the consequences
Of your ambivalence
You’ll never see this coming down

It seems
Friend and fiend speak in the same tones
Knights and beasts look a lot alike
They share a shape in the shadow
Cut out of me

Can’t stop shaking, still scared shitless
Last night they came, stole my last blanket
Stripped me naked, they’re growling louder
Wrapped up in a ball, I’m without power
I guess I’ll have to sleep with my eyes open

A great fire!
Pestilence!
Don’t stop to think
Just keep up your shrieking
