And so what if it lasts for the day or it goes away in a month?
There's no air in here we'll mark our fears on charts
and let the robots make the art
now we're green as pickles always fickle
soft yet brittle bittersweet but tart
the kids have grown fangs they sleep through the day
and they come out to prey right after dark
into thin air each year more disappear
falling victim to the vampires in our park
now the meanest little bat-winged freaks
will bite us in our sleep and leave a mark
and they're waiting on the outside of town
every night we're praying there ain't no more around
knelt before the crosses on the walls of our houses
there's a ticking like a clock beneath the floor in the ground
and dogs are barking
outlets all are sparking
all the walls are shaking
everything is breaking
everything is breaking down

a slow haze finds we're changing our ways
since we have no need to pray anymore
we've replaced our faith with fear over the years
and now we lock ourselves indoors
this electronic box collects our thoughts
and speaks our minds much better than before
and they're waiting on the outside of town
every night to prey but now there's no one around
burning up the crosses that they've hung upside down
they strike-out like the clock that marks tonight's witching hour
our walls are shaking
everything is breaking
all the doors are locked
and no ones even talking
they're out way past the curfew
they're hiding behind the curtains
everybody's certain
yes everyone is certain
they saw something moving there behind the curtains
