you all like kitten?
(yummy) in my tummy.

we walked this road
twice a day for ten years
but it was just last night when we noticed something strange
three stories tall, two hundred years old
a light in the attic and nothing more

shivers slithered sideways
on our spines
so we all got under our covers, raced home
everything was fine
but next day at 6 pm i received a phone call
ring
hello
hey
hey, man
hows it going
and so long
do you remember that old house,
That rotten old house by the water?
From last night?
Yep
The haunted one?
the haunted one.
what about it?
well i wanna go back
you're crazy man
No, I'm not crazy, you asshole
I just wanna go back there I wanna-
You have a chemical unbalance
and i think you should, okay lets do it
Yeah, lets go. tommorw, tonight, i mean at midnight

I sighed and hung up the phone
Id never been inside a haunted home
I met the gang right outside the old house
allright whos go first?
was the rallying cry
ill go last
was the resounding reply
*knock knock knock*
alright theres nobody home and the front doors locked
hey look an open window!
uh oh
so we all climbed in
into cobwebs and darkness and indoor (and indoor) wind
as i motioned to leave something tugged at my sleeve
so i turned around
everyone was gone
im all alone in this awful home...

All alone in an awful home
I feel the drip drip drip from the marrow of the bone
ghouls lack soul and they're white as ghosts
but the dead can dance more alive than most, and
they twist their head from their shoulders
and shimmy, when it's over.
not alone on a haunted home
I'm a packed in fool with jiggly bones
pretty ghoul asked me to dance
Should I have escaped? did I miss my chance?
but I said yes and it was nice
held her close
I'm not alone

We're all alone in an awful home!

We're all alone in an awful home
We're all alone in an awful home
We're all alone in an awful home
We're all alone in an awful home I said

All alone
All alone
All alone
All alone
All alone
All alone

I'm totally going to go on tour with these guys.
