lyrics

It’s 3 A.M. and you can’t sleep ‘cause the boogiemen are on the TV screen
A thousand channels, and in HD, but fear’s the only frequency
You shiver, you shudder, you toss and turn under the covers
You lock the door, shut the windows and close your blinds
And then you hear a creaking in the floor
A bony finger scratching at the door
And a voice under the bed is whispering,
“Tell me, is that frightening? Are you terrified yet?”

As the talking heads deliver the night news feed, something’s festering underneath
And then in every corner the shadows creep
Making sure you’re horrified and glued to your seat
So tell me, is that frightening?
Are you terrified yet?

You won’t mind your living hell ‘cause you’re too busy scared to death
But what should really get you petrified and pale is that the boogiemen are all just in your head

You stammer, you stutter, you can’t seem to find the words to utter
You’ve become a slave to the chill going up your spine
And you’re so scared of what goes on outside—the horror movie that’s become your life
That you’re welcoming the wool they’re pulling up and over your eyes

You won’t mind your living hell ‘cause you’re too busy scared to death
But what should really get you petrified and pale is that the boogiemen are all just in your head
No, you just can’t be rational when you’re about to piss yourself
But don’t you know that in darkness dwell the fears of men?
Just shine the light of right of mind and they’ll disappear

All your fears are reflections of yourself
So tell me, what’s so frightening?
Terrifying?
Horrifying?
Petrifying?

Illuminate the terrors in your mind and you’ll shine
All your shadows shatter in the light
So shine
