Little girl with small-town dreams,
Swallowing her small-town screams;
Doesn't know the reasons.
Best leave well enough alone.

Mother, yes, but not by blood --
Never could have understood.
Sometimes love is treason,
And you're taking Sharon home.

The broken doors are open, come, and enter, if you will;
We hope that you enjoy your stay in scenic Silent Hill.

Fires burning underground;
Some things better lost than found.
If you ask the questions,
Best be sure you want to know.

Some things better left forgot,
Some dreams better left unsought.
Having the directions
Doesn't mean you ought to go.

The shattered stage is set, and there's a role you must fulfill;
We hope that you enjoy your stay in scenic Silent Hill.

Certain lines can't be uncrossed;
Certain maps will get you lost.
Once you're past the border,
Then you'll have to play the game.

All it takes is just one spark,
Just one child lost in the dark.
The world is out of order.
It's been broken since she came.

The cost of faith is high and now it's time to pay the bill;
We hope that you enjoy your stay in scenic Silent Hill.

Tell yourself it's just a game, like truth or dare, or hide and seek;
You can't be hurt by what's not there, so go ahead now, take a peek.
Ash to ash and dust to dust, there's nothing here that's safe to trust,
And what's been broken once can rise a second time, to kill.
We hope that you enjoy your stay in scenic Silent Hill.

Here's the endgame, here's the price;
Don't force us to ask you twice.
If you want your daughter,
Best you be prepared to pay.

Trade the truth for one more lie,
Bid what's real one last goodbye.
You might escape the slaughter,
But you'll never get away.

The broken doors are closed, but they can open for you still;
We hope that you enjoyed your stay in scenic Silent Hill.
We promise that we'll wait in secret, scenic Silent Hill.
