[Rod Serling]
Tonight's story is somewhat unique and calls for a different kind of introducing
A monster had arrived in the village
The major ingredient of any recipe for fear is the unknown
And this person or thing is soon to be met
He knows every thought, he can feel every emotion
Oh yes, I did forget something didn't I? I forgot to introduce you to the monster.

You're fearing me, 'cause you know I'm a beast
Watching you when you sleep, when you're in bed
I'm underneath
You're trapped in halls, and my face is the walls
I'm the floor when you fall, and when you scream it's â??cause of me
I'm the living dead, the dark thoughts in your head
I know just what you said
That's why you've got to be threatened by me

[Chorus]
You should be watching me, you should feel threatened
Why you sleep, why you creep, you should be threatened
Every time your lady speaks she speaks to me, threatened
Half of me you'll never be, so you should feel threatened by me

You think you're by yourself, but it's my touch you felt
I'm not a ghost from Hell, but I've got a spell on you
In one blink I'll disappear, and then I'll come back to haunt you
I'm telling you, when you lie under a tomb
I'm the one watching you
That's why you got to be threatened by me

[Chorus]

The unknown monster is about to embark
From a far corner, out of the dark
A nightmare, that's the case
Never Neverland, that's the place
This particular monster can read minds
Be in tow places at the same time
This is judgment night, execution, slaughter
The devil, ghosts, this monster is torture
You can be sure of one thing, that's fate
A human presence that you feel is strange
A monster that you can see disappear
A monster, the worst thing to fear.

[Chorus: x3]

What you have just witnessed could be the end of a particularly terrifying nightmare.
It isn't. It's the beginning.

    General Comment:I think it's just a mockery out of criticism and speculation about him.
    As if he was a monster of some kind, as if he spied on people to now how to scare them next.

    You should be watching me, you should feel threatened
    (you shoul make sure he doesn't do anything that could eventually scare , or bother you somehow)

    Why you sleep, why you creep, you should be threatened
    (Why are you wasting your time sleeping when you should be watching him and making sure that he's not going to harm you?)

    Every time your lady speaks she speaks to me, threatened
    (This one just makes me laugh. As if there are no other men)

    Half of me you'll never be, so you should feel threatened by me
    (This it's just power. Here you shoud actually be threatened because he'll allways be great and no matter how much you try to hurt him, you'll never even be half of him).

    General Comment:All of his songs do not have to have hidden meanings. I think this one though is about paranoia in general.

    My Interpretation:I think it is about the illuminati.
    In my opinion he is threatening them.

    Tonight's story is somewhat unique and calls for a different kind of introduction
    (He wants to tell something, but it's nothing like we ever knew)

    And this person or thing is soon to be met
    (Something will be happening very soon)

    You're fearing me, ‘cause you know I'm a beast
    (He is scared to some people, because he is the devil)

    Half of me you'll never be
    (Some people will never be a half of Mike)

    I'm not a ghost from Hell
    (Mike is not a ghost from Hell, but from Heaven)

    In one blink I'll disappear, and then I'll come back to haunt you
    (He faked his death, so he "disappeared" in one blink, and then he returns to try to reveal the illuminati)

    I'm telling you, when you lie under a tomb
    I'm the one watching you
    (He's telling the illuminati that when they are revealed he will laugh at them that their plans have failed)

    The unknown monster is about to embark
    From a far corner, out of the dark
    (The illuminati will reveal themself as good people and succeed their NWO plans)

    A nightmare, that's the case
    Never Neverland, that's the place
    (Mike will fake his death in Neverland)

    A human presence that you feel is strange
    (Mike was no normal human, he was a reincarnation of Jesus or God, so he could warn us)

    A monster that you can see disappear
    (We saw Mike disappear)

    What you have just witnessed could be the end of a particularly terrifying nightmare.
    It isn't. It's the beginning.
    (Everything we see like wars, financial crisis around the world, children dying etc. look like a terrifying nightmare. And the governments say they do something about it which they don't. So it isn't the end, but the beginning of a scary future)

    Please forgive me for my english.
    I am dutch, so I may have made some english mistakes.
    I tried to write the best I can.
