"The Creature Walks" as written by and Adam Tanbouz Steven Bache....
Can you find my angel?
She crawled under the bed
I thought I saw her breathing
But found out she was dead
It's too late, it's over

Can't you feel these dreams (it's over)
Message to the queen (it's over)
The baby stops breathing (it's over)
Can't you feel these dreams?
It's over

Could you call a doctor who can stop by at nine?
Well I'd planned this day for dying
But now I'm feeling fine
It's too late, it's over

Can't you feel these dreams (it's over)
Message to the queen (it's over)
The baby stops breathing (it's over)
Can't you feel these dreams?
It's over

The creature is walking
The creature is

I've got to find a new passage way
I've got to get home by saturday
Queen to castle, church to nun
What a wicked web I've spun
I've go to get home by saturday
So I have to find a new passage way
I've got a car with no place to go
"How 'bout a little fire scarecrow?"

Wake yourself up
You've been dreaming again
About having new friends in a ghost town

Wake yourself up
You've been dreaming again
About having new friends in a ghost town


Can't you feel these dreams (it's over)
The baby stops breathing (it's over)
Message to the queen (it's over)
Can't you feel these dreams (it's over)
It's over, it's over, it's over, over

    General CommentNumber 3 from "I Am Hollywood" - Once again we find ourselves faced with lyrics and music critiquing the creepy city of Hollywood.

    Can you find my angel?
    She crawled under the bed

    (I can see a distrought parent who is looking for their daughter - their angel - who left home to persue her dreams in the city of angels - I think the metaphor here is that it would be hard to find "their little angel" when she is lost in the acclaimed "city of angels"... which is a needle-in-the-haystack kind of thing - To enter Hollywood would be like crawling under your bed - a place that is dark, and unknown to most ;])

    I think I saw her breathing
    But found out she was dead

    (I think at this point the parents found their daughter - but they found her doing something like prostitution or something degrading. The parents consider her another lost soul of Hollywood; in other words - dead to the modern civilized world)

    It is too late
    It is over
    Can't you feel these dreams (it's over)
    Message to the queen (it's over)
    The baby stops breathing (it's over)
    Can't you feel these dreams?
    It's over

    (So the parents start asking themselves 'Was this her dream? To be degraded and used?' But the daughter says 'message to the queen (eath to mom) - it's over - I'm not your little girl anymore)

    Could you call a doctor who could stop by at nine?
    I had planned this day for dying
    But now I'm feeling fine

    (Sarcastically, the daughter begins to lash out at her parents and asking them if they think there is a simple solution to actions that cannot be undone - a doctor can't make this better. To her parent's credit, she wasnt enthusiastic about this job either and the day she moved in was the day she died, but now that Hollywood sucked her in she feels better because people like her mean something in that city)

    The Creature is walking

    (Hollywood's newest monster is now fully independant and another drone among the city)

    I've got to find a new passage way
    I've got to get home by Saturday

    (Afraid, the parents wish to leave the city before teh "creatures" or citizens of the city have a chance to suck them in as well)

    Queen to Castle, Church to Nun
    What a wicked web I've spun

    (The mom wants to go home, and she prays to God that he can show her daughter (the nun) the right way out of this wicked web of lies and deciet she has spun)

    I've go to get home by Saturday
    So I have to find a new passage way
    I've got a car with no place to go
    "How bout a little fire scarecrow?"

    (The daughter laments on the fact that her parents have deserted her. Sure, she owns a fancy car in glitz-n-glam Hollywood - but she has nobody to see and nowhere to be in particular. Props to He Is Legend for their clever use of lyrics; as for the Wizard of Oz reference, your guess is as good as mine. What i see is the daughter resuming prostitution and asking a customer if he is ready for some excitement)

    Wake yourself up
    You've been dreaming again
    About having new friends in a ghost town

    (The He Is Legend Punch Line: The daughter was dreaming this entire dream. She only imagined her parents cared enough for her well-being to find her in Hollywood, and she was only dreaming about being a prostitute. She escapes to these dreams because she literally has nobody to call her own in Hollywood, or anywhere in the world)

    That being said, the chorus could be the daughter's concience asking her if she can feel these dreams affecting her mentality - but she argues with herself that its over, and she will never find somebody to be with.

    General CommentIm not sure if this is correct due to the other songs on the album, but a take that could be from this song:

    I picture a hospital bed of sorts, and a baby that was born and died. This makes sense as the dreams are over, the message to the queen (the mother that the baby is dead), and the baby stops breathing(dur).

    However it doesnt fit as well in with the rest of the song..so...yeah

    General Commentstaplesmcjebus awesome whether thats what they meant or not you should tell them about that in case they never thought of that before. neways another thought might be a young persons dreams just not going according to plan. she gets so worked up about things and idk i she cant think and it finally falls apart.

    General CommentEvery time I listen to this song, I always think of the end of a good book. That sort of applies to a lot of HIL songs for me, though, so it's probably just me =P Still, I think the real meaning's about a relationship ending(Message to the queen(it's over), Wake yourself up you've been dreaming again), and the first bit(Can you find my angel etc.) is about she being his "angel", and when something happens that she either does or he does kills their love, ... erm... yeah. I'm tired xD
