"Is It Scary" as written by Michael Joe Jackson, Terry Lewis and Iii Harris....
There's a ghost out in the hall
There's a goul beneath the bed
Now it's coming through the walls
Now it's coming down the stairs

Then there's screaming in the dark
Hear the beating of his heart
Can you feel it in the air
Ghosts be hiding everywhere

I'm gonna be
Exactly what you want to see
It's you who's haunting me
You're warning me
To be the stranger
In your life

Am I amusing you
Or just confusing you
Am I the beast
You visualized
And if you want to see
Eccentrialities
I'll be grotesque
Before your eyes

Let them all materialize
Is that scary for you, baby
Am I scary for you, oh
Is it scary for you, baby
Is it scary for you
You know the stranger is you
Is it scary for you, baby

There's a creak beneath the floor
There's a creak behind the door
There's a rocking in the chair
But nobody sitting there
There's a ghostly smell around
But nobody to be found
And a coughin' and a yawnin'
Where restless soul's spoke

I'm gonna be
Exactly what you gonna see
So did you come to me
To see your fantasies
Performed before your very eyes

A haunting ghostly treat
The foolish trickery
And spirits dancing
In the light

But if you came to see
The truth the purity
It's here inside
A lonely heart

So let the performance start
Is that scary for you, baby
Am I scary for you, oh
Am I scary for you, baby
Am I scary for you
So tell me is it scary for you, baby
So tell me is it crazy for you, baby
Am I scary for you
You know the stranger is you
Am I scary for ya

Masquerade the heart
Is the height of haunting souls
Just not what you seek of me
Can the heart reveal the proof
Like a mirror reveals the truth
See the evil one is you

Is that scary for you, baby
Am I scary for you, oh
Am I scary for you, baby
Is it scary for you
So tell me am I scary for you, baby
Am I scary for ya, baby
Is is scary for ya, baby
Am I scary for you
(I don't want to talk about it)

Am I scary for you, baby
Am I scary for you
I'm tired of being abused
You know you're scaring me too
I see the evil is you
Is it scary for you, baby

    General CommentJohnny you fkn cunt.

    anyway,

    "But if you came to see
    The truth the purity
    It's here inside
    A lonely heart
    So let the performance start"

    That line is so beautiful. One of my top songs from the ghosts video. It's a sad song but a great awesome one too!

    General CommentThis song is definitely about how some people see him as a 'freak' and how they taunt him. But in reality, they should be scared of their own ignorance.

    General Commenti think this was his way of saying "fuck you" to the haters. and that he knows very well how he looks. and he knows all the rumors, and he is very sad that he has become a monster in the eyes of many of who used to adore him. it is very sad...

    General CommentThis song was kind of a prototype for Ghosts, which was reworked and written later and is a better song, in my opinion. "Is It Scary" was originally written for the Addams Family show soundtrack, but something didn't work out.
