What is this horrible scratching under my bed?
Could it be strange demons in my head?
Turning a dead-eye towards the other side
You can run and you can hide
But, the Evil will never subside
The noise underneath by bed increases in tone
As I lie here all alone
with darkness swirling all around me.
Paralyzed in fear
Needing to shout …will anyone hear
When no sound comes out?
Exceptional shock as I feel something
touching my leg.
Shivering in pain and in fright
The tugging and scratching tip-toeing down my spine
Panic sets in as the uneasiness reaches a dreadful peak
So scared…only morbid thoughts I can speak
What is this thing under my box-springs?
Persistent clawing at the frame
Growling as Death lurks…oh, the song that it sings
Overwhelming, mind-numbing pain
Will somebody please…Please, HELP ME!
Breathing in gulps of shallow hopelessness
Dying, Dying…Flying in petrified worthlessness
This life…this death…Has it all been worth the risk?
What is really here?
Beneath my bed and everywhere
What is this scratching comin’ from underneath?
The only sight that I can see
Comin’ from underneath
As my sweat soaked mattress, ever so tightly I squeeze
Is just a horrifying …
