Say goodnight, go to sleep, close your eyes, shut them tight
And don't fret about the man with the knife
It's a joke, it's a lie, he's a fake
Just a plague of the memories that keep you awake.

But if you let your subconscious bleed into reality
He'll be hunting you down in your dreams.
So just relax, breath deep, let your mind drift you off to sleep
And I'll see if I can keep the blade away

But maybe he could stay
And if you close your eyes, he'll be gone by daybreak, yeah.
Maybe he could stay
And as you sleep, he'll steal all your dreams away, anyway.

Love and death are the two things that he is most aware of.
Singing songs of heartbreak and homicide.
And you'd think that he would cry, but his tear well has turned stone dry.
And if you could have seen the way his life was lived to this date and time
Then maybe you'd understand his violent state of mind.

But maybe he could stay
And if you close your eyes, he'll be gone by daybreak, yeah.
Maybe he could stay
And as you sleep, he'll steal all your dreams away, anyway.

He's watching, he's waiting, and he's planning.

Say goodnight, go to sleep, close your eyes, shut them tight
And don't fret about the man with the knife
It's a joke, it's a lie, he's a fake
Just a plague of the memories that keep you awake.

All he wanted was one last kiss, he said "Shoot me so I leave this world alive."
Just a killer with one last wish, he said "Shoot me so I leave this world alive."
And all he wanted was one last kiss, he said "Shoot me so I leave this world alive."
Just a killer with one last wish, he said "Shoot me so I leave this world alive."
