Lyrics

SLEEPER

Horrifying history, images hideous, mischievous,
Since Leviticus, sick and Insidious,
Picture this, triggers click,
That one’s a blazer, every day we face another man made Hellraiser,
Bent out of shape, escape, now hear me vent,
Before we take this underground and undergo the Descent,
The nexus of rawness, gods casting their hexes,
Check the census, chainsaws buzzing down in Texas,
Michael Myers mask on the mic, we carve your pumpkin,
Halloween night with the knife, your heart is thumpin’,
Frightening, lightning strike your sight stare,
Bladed glove on Elm Street, handing out the nightmares like,
One two Twist is coming for you,
Three four lock the door, running you suddenly flew,
Check the presets, before levels are reset,
No regrets, slaying these beats like Devils Rejects.

Action, take one cut, that’s a keeper,
Directed to horrify, scenes getting deeper,
Themes from the screen projected into the ether,
Right there just another nightmare for the sleeper

It Follows as Zodiac codes decipher typos,
Scripted in cycles, Hitchcock writing for Psycho,
Alive, recite the Necronomicon surprise,
Arriving at the precipice phenomenon inside,
Commonly, exorcism or out of bodily,
Experience is claimed when related to the Prophecy,
Sinister cinema depicting the social fabrics,
With graphic tactics, take it back to the classics,
The impact is simply colossal,
Within the sands of time, deep in the fossils,
Body of work like Stephen King to the novel,
How to survive against the next great debacle,
Down here in the South, it’s kind of sandy man,
Hip-hop handy man, drop hooks like Candyman,
I bet you snap, like Jigsaw about to set the trap,
How much pain will you suffer through to get it back?

Action, take one cut, that’s a keeper,
Directed to horrify, scenes getting deeper,
Themes from the screen projected into the ether,
Right there just another nightmare for the sleeper

Closer to the edge in the age of scary stories,
Exposure to the plague in various categories,
Welcome to the hell house lost inside a sinful place,
Left without a trace, no case, across from Crystal Lake,
Feeling unlucky suddenly having a wild day,
No this ain’t Chucky, and no, this ain’t no Child’s Play,
Destined for great things, thinking you’re a made king,
When in reality, you’re actually a changeling

Action, take one cut, that’s a keeper,
Directed to horrify, scenes getting deeper,
Themes from the screen projected into the ether,
Right there just another nightmare for the sleeper
