It Came From The Dead It came from the dead With the mark of a red wicked 6 Photographed vortex Gave proof of this vile conjuring Dark spells cast like a heart attack From a long dead ghost Mesmerism Tempted by a night time thrill Cheated by a scream from a decoy The ghost finished screaming forgets Of the haunting for the protest Metaphysical and insanely perverse Of the tearing seal of ectoplasm Of the tearing seal of ectoplasm Floated then flew away Jealous of attention from the warm bodied And free its anger was so agitated Flying smashed out of the window It was captured by the infrared scanner Full terror of what could become Of this poltergeist lost among us Seeking nothing but to feel Thrown by this specter There’s no escape from the stone Retribution is in store Look out!

Zombies 03:07
Zombies A Ghost infection of the dead From the books that some have read They’re crawling from the hallowed ground They’re Tearing earth in much abound The Cemeteries emptied out The Morgues are silent all throughout Some are whole, some cut in two Some are old and some are new Finally they’re free As far as we can see All the living flee The time has come to be Zombies! Those still living run like hell Careful not to leave a trail Don’t leave a scent that they can smell Or they will find you without fail Not a fortress can withstand The walking dead severe demands The hunger fuels them for their greed For blood and brains is what they need They’re in the schools and in the malls They stormed the public conference halls They spread their fear just like disease And swarm their hate like killer bees They’ll eat your guts and eat your brains They’ll chase you down till you’re insane They don’t feel peace they don’t feel pain They only mass for undead reign dead have come beat the drum life has lost death has won Zombies. Zombies. Zombies. Zombies.

Close Your Eyes Where do we go when we are dead? I don’t know I’m lying in my bed And there’s something tapping at my window I know it’s in my head The sound of a woman’s voice as she’s softly crying Now I have a feeling of dread As my heart beats Keeping the rhythm of my labored breathing Coldness creeps into the room Something is sliding on the floor This night is quiet as a tomb Something is pushing on the door There is something in the house Something in the house Something in the house And I can’t breath I don’t believe in ghosts They’re not real But the tingling sensation up my spine A cold chill A quiet voice outside My window a wind blows Across my face it’s out of place I trace it Back to the corner of my room There’s nothing there Except the strange sensation of a hard glare Like someone looking at me in anger Like there’s someone coming at me in anger And I feel an odd sensation of danger An ever rising feeling of danger There’s a hand on my throat A hand on my throat A hand on my throat And I can’t breath Windows Close and Doors will Open Close your eyes Close your eyes Something is always watching… I close my eyes in the dead of the night But it doesn’t keep the fear out, it doesn’t keep the fear out.

Her Hair Turned Gray They took her to the murder house on a dare They told about a family that once lived there Until the horrid night while they were unaware Someone came and killed them all then disappeared The house had stayed abandoned after all these years Rumors about the things in there have been declared Tonight the girl is gonna prove that she’s not scared And with a laugh she kicked the gate while everybody stared This is what we’ve heard and this is what they say: Her hair turned gray, the very next day!!! She stepped into the dusty hall and softly shut the door A coldness crept inside her spine that wasn’t there before Walking up the stairs with a compulsion to explore She went into the bedroom with the stain that’s on the floor Standing in the middle took a picture of her score She heard a noise that made her jump and whispered like a roar She turned her head to see a face a woman filled with scorn She ran out screaming from the house returning nevermore This is what we’ve heard and this is what they say: Her hair turned gray, the very next day!!! Some things that you see Can never be unseen

Dragged Down To The Basement Dragged down the basement kicking and screaming The modern sense of arrogance you have won’t help you here That which you are dealing with is greater than you fear All the signs that you’ve ignored are creeping ever near You try to drown it out with logic but it ends in tears A picture falls off the wall Another light bulb dies Crying sounds in the hall Lights flicker, a lamp enlights It’s so dark where we are We are so angry There was so, so much blood We are so angry Your modern sense of ignorance won’t help you end the night The science in the toys you keep will only serve to spite The darkness of the shadows move just outside your sight Closing in to catch their prey closing in to bite Scratch marks inside the door A cold breeze passes you by Lost keys found on the floor A mirror cracks a cat cries A twisted spine, a broken neck We are so angry Forgotten but not forgiven We are so angry We asked you to get out We even tripped your dreams We muttered in your ear Now it’s time to scream We smell your blood like roses We taste your fear and sweat Fingernails break their poses Now we make good our threat Dragged down to the basement kicking and screaming and never seen again…

Handgun 03:24
Handgun Run for cover Run, run, run It’s another Teen with gun Poor and angry Young and dumb Full of vigor Full of come Feel his hatred Like a drum Locked and loaded It’s all fun He’s gonna pull it He’s gonna pull it He’s gonna pull it He’s gonna pull it Hand Gun Wild born and full of pride Hand Gun Raised on hate and other lies Hand Gun Fights to quell the rage inside Hand Gun Anger swells and everybody dies A ghost of hate Is in his veins A heavy weight Held down by chains He can’t escape What you sedate The anger pains That burn his brain He can’t relate The barrel trains It’s too late All that remains He’s gonna pull it He’s gonna pull it He’s gonna pull it He’s gonna pull it! Now he knows what he wants And he knows how to get it A nervous finger on the trigger The metal makes him feel bigger Now You know he’s gonna pull it Now You know he’s gonna pull it!

21CCD 04:06
21CCD Everyone has an addiction Everyone I know needs some kind of fixin Over the counter or injected in the food Machines will dispense it or a doctor will include Pills come down like rain For any kind of ill or any kind of pain No matter what moral institution Everyone I know has the same solution Ahhh, what’s your pick Ahhh, what’s your fix Oooh, your minds so thick Ooooh, the drugs will stick 21st Century Chemical Dependency! You eat it, you breath it you drink it you stick it You breed it, you bleed it, but you’ll never ever lick it The drugs on war is just to kill the poor While the pigs get rich but their skin still itches They use the laws to clean their paws But They’re dirty like the scabs that are bleeding from the stitches Pills come down like rain For any kind of ill or any kind of pain No matter what moral institution Everyone I know has the same solution Ahhh, what’s your pick Ahhh, what’s your fix Oooh, your minds so thick Ooooh, the drugs will stick Side effects may include your life The ghost of what you were before this Haunts you in your sleep each night The ghost of what you were before this Calls your name but fades each time

She’s So Haunted She hears noises in the house when there’s nobody home She hears voices in the other room when she’s all alone There always seems to be static when she talks on the phone When she walks into a room you feel the cold to the bone There’s no explanations As hard as you may try With all the investigations All that you would find She’s so haunted You will realize She’s so haunted You can see it in her eyes She wears black all year long no matter what time or day She is pale as a ghost the sun won’t take it away She always seems to have shadows even when there’s no shade When she walks into a room people start feeling afraid Scratches on the window and marks upon the door Ashes from the candles and the circle on the floor Something very old is found and wasn’t there before Something in the darkness lost to wander evermore

Paranormal Paranoia The darkness comes and the light divides Your rights have gone to the other side You try to make your way but you can’t decide You try to fake your way but you just can’t hide Mistakes you made with the takes you trade You staked the fade but you flaked the raid Now you bade the days that you played the blade And you’ve paid up into the dead end knowing all your plans are flayed Listening to the beating that is coming from your chest Hoping that somehow your screaming mind will come to rest Sleep does not come easy when your senses are possessed You know you’ve gone the wrong way and the darkness is your test You try to make your way out of this You try to take your way out of this You’ve got to make your way out of this You’ve got to break your way out of this! Paranormal paranoia! The night has come and the sun is dead The moon is howling inside your head You got to shake the feeling but you just can’t shed You got to break the reeling of impending dread You broke the note when you groped the rope You spoke provoked but you invoked the choke Now you have woke the cloak that now floats your throat And now you’re running into a dead end and you’ve losing all hope Looking back over your shoulder you thought someone was standing there Looking into the empty space there is movement in the air Blowing through your fingers now it’s blowing through your hair A sensation like touching at least that’s what you would swear You try to make your way out of this You try to take your way out of this You’ve got to make your way out of this You’ve got to make your way out of this!

Bloody Bones 04:25
Bloody Bones Bloody Bones is gonna getcha! Mother said to be home before dark I was having too much fun in the park Suddenly the streetlights made sparks A cold wind started blowing and the chill made its mark With a shiver I turned to head back Far up the street a shadow turned black My heart started racing my mind was in a stack My feet were growing heavy my muscles turned slack The shadow grew closer, I swear it looked red It was a block away from home and I heard singing in my head I looked a round for assistance, but the neighborhood was dead And the singing grew louder and this is what it said: Bloody Bones is gonna getcha! I’m halfway to my house but I’m moving ever slow The shadow that I flee has turned out to be blood and bones I hear the wet sounds he makes when his feet hits the stones Tears are trailing down my face wishing I never left home Now the sun is completely gone and the moon is shining bright I’m slowly heading up the stairs and bloody bones is clearly in sight I’m shaking from the fear and straining to move with all of my might Thinking of my Mothers words to be home before twilight A few feet from the door now and I’m slowed by growing dread Bloody bones is moving faster and I’m barely just ahead My hand is on the handle but now his hand is on my threads His singing’s growing ever louder and this is what he says: Bloody Bones is gonna getcha! The closer he gets the slower you move The closer he gets the slower you move The closer he gets the slower you move The closer he gets the slower you move (A coooold wet hand touches my back with a sting I scream in terror at what the bloody bones may bring I pull on the door knob and suddenly it flings And there stands my Mother, surprised by my frightened cling Bloody bones has disappeared and I safely go to bed But the singing still rings in my ears and the words that the creature said: Bloody Bones is gonna getcha!

Now I Drown 04:22
Now I Drown In the darkness In the window There’s a face I Realize now Shadowed logic In the distance I remember How the sun set On her visage When I lost grip On our friendship Now the fear grips I am seeing There before me That which can’t be That which can’t be I’m so sorry I let you down I am so sorry I let you down And now I drown I’m so still and, I’m so shaking I’m so cold and Stare not breaking Eyes like razors Cutting through me I would scream if, I could move Back when she was Still above ground I had promised Not to be late Promise broken She had ventured Out alone and Never to make it never to make it

We Prefer The Shadows We walk among you, watching, waiting We talk along with you, listening, laughing And when we touch you, you feel cold This is how much you could ever know We keep on feeding, we never, grow old We prefer the shadows Moving through the darkness, calling, falling Smells of earth and sweet decay, foot steps, echoes We sleep with marble, granite and wood We touch your window as we should There is no going back, if we could We prefer the shadows Black birds calling your name Twisted winds winding through the game Night falls hard across the plane Heart beats pulsing like the rain Leaves and soil and fingers and hearts Herbs and skin and bottles and parts Tattered these words on a paper so thin Nobody knows where death begins

When The World Leaves You Behind When the world leaves you behind It will feel like you have run out of time When the world leaves you behind It will feel like you are losing your mind Everything feels changed Why do I feel so deranged? Everything feels strange Everything feels rearranged Oh no, where did the world go? Everything feels gray Everything feels gone away Feeling so dismayed Feeling like my life’s decayed Oh no, where did my world go? Check me Can you feel my breath? Check me Is my heart still beating? Check me Could it be my death? Check me Or could I still be Dreaming?
