"I'd best explain it from the start," so you say
But then you're quiet for nearly an hour
So how about a clue as to why you summoned me?
It's in the open that you suffer from madness
Why not include me in your secret, hidden ways?
I'd like to be in the light of your problems
And I... I want to hear more

"Good lord, they're everywhere
They wrap around you like a great worm
And they drain your spirit
Oh, can you see them?
Of course you can't - you're from the real world
Then you must forgive me"

The doctor's right to say you've lost your reasoning
I see you tremble as you babble of nothing
Your mouth is open but you mutter to the side
Your eyes are darting as you thrash at the night air
My friend, I beg you just to tell me where you were
They say they found you at the mouth of the Seekonk
But how? How? Just how'd you get there?

"Can't get too far away
Drain out the bogs and live in the mountains
And still they'll find you
Don't let it happen
Get to the town of which I wrote you
And there you'll find out"

I don't know what I came here for
I'm such a fool
He was ranting and raving
What's that moving at the docks?
Let's have a look
But it's all as my friend described it

The trees are walking here
I shouldn't have stood in such a plain view
Now I'll never get back
I don't believe it
How did these things get hold of dry land?
And from where'd they come?

Good lord, they're everywhere
They wrap around you like a great worm
And then they suck your mind for spirit
Can't get too far away
So take your child and beg for mercy
And they'll kill you quickly
