"The Shining" as written by Jonathan James English and Greg Henson....
The Colorado Ballroom is alive tonight
Masked people waitin' for midnight
The gins on the table, drinkable, neat
And there's blood and brains splattered on the Presidential Suite

And the ghosts and the screams of yesterdays schemes
Echo round the bathroom in two-seventeen
And the firehose lies innocent, ready to strike
And the dogman sits grinnin', ready to bite

And its all shinin' (shinin'), they were blinded by the lights
Look at it shinin' (shining), they were calling them at nights
Sayin' hey, why don't you stay in the darkness and the dust
Why don't you stay awhile and shine with us

Ooh, she lies in her limbo, she bathes and she waits
With hedge-lions guardin' the dark and frosted gates
there's a little boy, screaming for help with his mind as he hides
'Cause somethins comin' down the corridor with jerky strides

And its all shinin' (shinin'), they were blinded by the lights
And its all shinin' (shinin'), they were calling them at nights
And its all shinin' (shinin'), they were blinded by the lights
And its all shinin' (shinin'), they were calling them at nights
Sayin' hey, why don't you stay in the darkness and the dust
Why don't you stay awhile and shine with us

Looks like hell, like hell, Jack Torrance knows it well
Look at it bubblin' in the boiler at the Overlook Hotel

Shinin' (shinin'), they were blinded by the lights
Look at it shining (shinin'), they were calling them at nights
Oh look at it shinin' (shinin'), they were blinded by the lights
Look at it shinin' (shinin'), they were calling them at nights
Sayin' hey, why don't you stay in the darkness and in the dust
All you gotta do is die, and you'll shine with
