Dead overnight
Lost in a dream
Wandering around the courtyard
Behind the willow tree

Back in the woods
Where I saw you watching me
Listen close now
I'll tell you what I've seen

Dark clouds, fire, smoke and gloom
Black faces filled the sky
Let me tell you how the nightmare started
'Bout things that go bump in the night
Please help me stop this game
Before I go insane
And tell me why the paper said
They found my body on the avenue dead
(I read about it in the paper)

Voice from the room
Under the fireplace
Dark visions stain my memory
Blood on the pillowcase

Lights burning low
Back to the grave I go
Wall clock ticking is sickeningly slow

Dark clouds, fire, smoke and gloom
Black faces filled the sky
Let me tell you how the nightmare started
'Bout things that go bump in the night
Please help me stop this game
Before I go insane
And tell me why the paper said
They found my body on the avenue dead

Baby, maybe I can make it till the dawn
I've been sleeping with the hall light on
Come lately, lately I
I'm shaking all the time
No sleep, I toss and turn
Burnin' on a Friday night
I know you're the devil by the venom in your bite

Dead overnight by the sanctuary
They found my long dead body
Face down, lyin' in the street

Down in the dirt
Lucifer is waiting up for me
Hell's choir in the white hot fire
Can't you hear them sing?

Dark clouds, fire, smoke and gloom
Black faces filled the sky
Let me tell you how the nightmare started
'Bout things that go bump in the night
Please help me stop this game
Before I go insane
And tell me why the paper said
They found my body on the avenue dead
(I read about it in the paper)
